You're Still a Spring Chicken | Whimsy Stamps

Hello Crafty Friends!

I have a birthday Spring card to share today! I've used the Whimsy Stamps Spring Chickens stamp set and the Spring Ovals Die set along with a little ink blending and Copic coloring! So get ready for some cuteness!

For this card I decided to Copic color my images with #80 Neenah Desert Storm cardstock for something a little different today. I love to Copic color on this cardstock, but rarely do.

After Copic coloring I ran the images through my Brother Scan n Cut machine, then set them aside. I created an A2 sized card base from some #100 Primitive (cream color) cardstock. I love this cardstock because of the flecks in the paper. I used the same cardstock and die cut a few ovals from the Spring Ovals Die Set

I inked up the edges of the ovals and the card base with Antique Linen Distress Ink, I haven't done that in a long time, I still love that look, especially on cardstock that has a vintage look. 

After inking the card, I began to assemble it. I used liquid glue to adhere the ovals one on top of the other, then I adhered the stacked ovals to card base. Then I adhered the tulips and decided to add dimension by using foam tape to pop up the chickens in front of the tulips and then gave them party hats! I love it! 
I stamped the sentiment You're still a Spring chicken on a sentiment die strip and popped it up with foam tape as well.

 I stamped a small chicken on the inside of the card and a sub sentiment that reads well...sort of! That sentiment cracks me up!

I completed the card by adding white highlights and shimmer on the images on the front of the card. I added some pretty white pearls for more interest.

That completes my card today, thanks so much for stopping by!

Hoggy Birthday | Whimsy Stamps

Happy Wednesday Crafty Friends!
I hope all is well with you and your family.

I have another piggy card today using the Hogs and Kisses stamp set along with the new Nested Hexagon Die Set and new Criss Cross Gingham Background Rubber stamp! OMGoodness this little piggy couple is too cute!

I began my card by stamping the images on #80 Neenah Cardstock with black Copic friendly ink. Then cut them out with my Brother Scan N Cut and colored the images with Copic markers.

I stamped the Gingham Background on to a pink cardstock using a darker shade of pink ink, then used a rectangle die from my stash to die cut the panel slightly smaller than the card base. I used the second largest Nested Hexagon and die cut a piece of white cardstock. Now it's time to assemble the card.

I adhered the Gingham Background with liquid glue to a top folding white A2 sized card base. I stamped the sentiment Hogs and Kisses to the hexagon panel,wrapped white bakers twine around it, tied a bow, then popped it up on foam tape and adhered it to the gingham panel. I popped the pigs up with foam tape as well and adhered it to the hexagon panel. 

To finish the card I added gems and white highlights with a Gelly Roll pen. I had an extra pig left over so I adhered him to the inside of the card.

And that's my card for today, I hoped you like it!

Special Mini Release | Whimsy Stamps

Hello Crafty Friends!

Whimsy Stamps has a special mini release that's available now! This release is so beautiful and I know you will love it!

 Mini Release

For my card today I'm using the new Poppy Flower Diethe new Fabulous Florals Pattern Paper along with the Envelope Edger Die Set from a previous release. I just love the way this card came out!

I started my card by die cutting the poppy and the leaves from colored cardstocks and the Envelope Edger Die with white cardstock. I die cut the pattern paper with the largest die from the Wonky Stitched Rectangle Die and adhered it with liquid glue to a A2 sized white card base, then adhered the Envelope Edger die cut on top.

Before adhering the poppy and leaves, I felt like they were to plain. I used Copic markers R81, R83, and R85 and darkened the centers of the flower and edges of the petals creating texture and dimension. Plus I thought it was much prettier colored.

I adhered the leaves flat to the pattern paper with liquid glue. then added liquid glue to the back center of each of the three poppy die cuts and placed one on top of the other then on to the leaves. Again I decided something more was needed. So I carefully added foam squares behind each petal to add dimension. It wasn't too hard, but easier if done beforehand. I stamped the sentiment Get Well Soon from the stamp set in a pink ink that coordinated with the poppy and pattern paper, and popped the sentiment up with foam squares on the card.

To finish the card I added a white pearl in the center of the poppy and two more around the card.

And that complete's my card for today! I'll have more cards with this mini release coming soon.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Fairy Llamacorn Magic | Whimsy Stamps

Hello Crafty Friends!

Today I've created a card using the Fairy Llamacorn Magic stamp set! This is such a super fun stamp set and fun to color! 

I began my card by stamping the image with Copic friendly black ink onto #80 Neenah Solar White cardstock. I die cut the panel with the Wonky Stitched Rectangle Dies and used Copic markers to color my image. I added green grass for the Llama to stand on, this grounded the image on the card. I added a sky with bluegreen Copic makers using a rectangle stencil, then used the Copic colorless blender to create dots all around him like Fairy dust. Then outlined him with a BG01 Copic marker.

I then brought in the Star Galaxy Stencil, and masked portions of it off with masking tape, I only wanted a few stars on my card. I used a palette knife to spread some Nuvo Embellish Mousse in Victorian Blush over the stencil.I loved the way this turned out, so pretty!

After the embellishment mousse dried I placed my card panel into my Misti and stamped the sentiment Believe in The Fairytale from the stamp set. I then adhered the panel down with liquid glue to an A2 sized top folding card base. I added Glossy Accents to the Llama's horn, wand, wings, shoes, nose, tail, and eyes. I added white highlights with a Gelly Roll pen and acrylic bubbles to complete my card!

Hogs and Kisses | Miss U | Whimsy Stamps

Happy Saturday Everyone!

I have another card today using the March release Hogs and Kisses stamp set! These hogs are so adorable and I really enjoyed coloring them.

Isn't he just so sweet! He looks so sad in this image which I thought was perfect for the Miss U sentiment I stamped in the heart. There is also a Love U sentiment that can be stamped in the heart as well.

  Also from the March release I used the new Criss Cross Gingham Background rubber stamp for my card. I stamped it in a pink ink on a slightly smaller panel than my card base. Then I used the Shaker Maker Banner die and die cut two of the banners, one large and one small. The smallest one for my little hog to sit on.

I stamped the little hog with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on to #80 Neenah Solar white cardstock, then stamped the sentiment Miss U in the heart. I cut the image out with my Brother Scan N Cut and  colored him with Copic markers. I used liquid glue to adhere the hog to the smallest banner. I adhered the Criss Cross Gingham background panel to an A2 sized card base, then adhered the largest banner on top. I popped up the smallest banner with my little hog on it with foam squares and adhered it to the smaller banner. 

I made a bow out of white baker's twine and added a mini clothes pin and adhered it with liquid glue on the small banner. I love using embellishments like this, it's just so fun! Then I added iridescent gems for some pretty bling, shimmer on the heart with a Nuvo Shimmer pen, and white highlights with a Gelly Roll pen.

For the inside I stamped the hog with the xoxo banner, I thought this went well continuing the banner theme to the inside of my card. Then I stamped the sentiment Sending You Hogs and Kisses. Love!

And that's my card for today, I hope you like it as much as I do!

Hey Chickie | Whimsy Stamps March Release

Happy Satur-YaY Crafty Friends!
I hope your weekend is off to a great start!

Today I'm sharing a Spring card with the new Spring Chickens stamp set in conjunction with the new Spring Ovals Die Set and the Wonky Stitched Rectangle Die set, which is an older release! The new Spring Ovals Dies is such a great die set with so many possibilities and this stamp set is too cute! And I know everyone knows the Wonky Stitched Rectangle die set is my current favorite! 

I began my card by creating an A2 sized top folding card from an off white cardstock called Primitive.This cardstock has little flecks in the paper which I think makes it beautiful. I used the Wonky Stitched Rectangle die to die cut a card panel with a Blueberry Cardstock. Then used the Primitive cardstock again to die cut two ovals from the Spring Ovals die set.

I stamped the chicks on #80 Neenah Solar White cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, cut them out with my Brother Scan n Cut and colored them with Copic markers. I stamped the grass, chicken feed and the sentiment Hey Chickie on the smallest oval. I stamped the grass in green ink and colored it in with copic markers and stamped the chicken feed and sentiment in brown ink.

I adhered everything with liquid glue beginning with the Blueberry panel onto the card base and the two ovals on top of one another. I adhered the little chicks in place and added a bow with pink and white twine. To complete my card I added shimmer with my Nuvo Shimmer pen, white highlights and little specks on the chicks and their bows with a white Gelly Roll pen. Then I adhered sequins with Glossy Accents, then added more Glossy Accents in the center of the sequins and added chunky glitter. I think that's so pretty to fill in the sequins with glitter or Stickles.

I had to decorate the inside of my card by stamping this little chick facing backwards, too cute! Then I stamped a party hat and the sentiment Party till the chickens come home in pink ink. 

And that completes my card!
