Thanks for GREEN!!!

Hi ya everyone!  I just wanted to share this little St. Paddy's day card I made using the set Gnome Sweet Gnome from Whimsy.  This is a set that once gone will be gone forever, so if you haven't picked yours up yet, do so soon!  I colored the gnome in Copics and stamped the sentiment in Versafine Clair Nocturne.  The little clovers are stamped in memento ink called cottage ivy.

I also used the lattice background and background buddies stamp set.  These are some of the most versatile and fun stamps from Whimsy!  I watercolored the background and then added the background lattice with VersaMark and then added white embossing powder.  After heat embossing I added the little four leaf clovers from the background buddy set.  Then heat embossed those.

Since this set is on it's way out at Whimsy here is another inspiration shot!  Enjoy and don't forget to pick yours up today.  Links are listed below.  Just click on the stamp set you are interested in!

Missing you today

Hey everyone!  Isn't this girl a cutie?  This is an image from Conie Fong Art called Susie Sunshine. This is a new stamp company to me, but I find her images quite sweet.  She's got a lot of adorable animals too.

She was colored in Copics.  I used some fun plaid paper from Lawn Fawn and matched it with cardstock and sparkly ribbon tape.  This card was created for Passionate Paper Creations and Friends on Facebook.  I feel like most of the crafting community is found on Facebook and Passionate Paper Creations is a great place to find discounts, share your creations and be inspired by other artists in the community.  Head over and check out all the great fun!

Too Sweet - stamping on fabric with Versafine Clair

Hi ya!  Have you ever tried to add fabric to your card?  Sometimes that simple touch can do so much.  The texture adds a nice touch that makes the receiver want to touch your card.  In addition, the new inks from Versafine Clair are just delicious.

They stamp so well that stamping on fabric is so nice.  The ink does not spread out or move once stamped.  The image is crisp and clean.  You'll see in this wonderful video I created for Imagine.  Also, if you haven't gotten a chance to check out the Versafine Clair inks, you can watch my quick review on them.

Check out how I created this card using fabric, Fabrico markers and Versafine Clair!!!  I used two Whimsy Stamps set to create this card!

The Fluffiest Unicorn - Fireworks Sprays!!!

Hi ya everyone!  Today, is travel day.  My sister and I are heading to a fun weekend of art with Dina Wakely.  But first, I wanted to share this card I made using the best sprays I've ever used!!! I love these Fireworks sprays from Imagine!  You guys, they are gorgeous.  The sparkle is truly amazing.  The color is super concentrated and vibrant!  I took a piece of Bristol Smooth paper and simple sprayed the ink everywhere.  I used Rosebud, Grape Jelly and Bahama blue and just look at the color.

These are the perfect color for unicorns right!?  So why not use the adorable The Greeting Farm stamp set called Fluffy Unicorn.  I decided to stamp them and simply cut out the body of the unicorn so that the gorgeous Fireworks! color could be the mane and tail of the unicorns!  I added sequence and done.  Seriously, a simple card and gorgeous.  I topped it off by stamping the sentiment in Versafine Clair Nocturne!

Hey There - Whimsy Stamps Release Day

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend and enjoying all the new fabulous products at Whimsy Stamps this week.  Today, I'm sharing the cutest Easter image!  Meet Penguin's bunch of bunnies!  This is a Crissy Armstrong image that comes in red rubber from Whimsy.  I colored these cuties in my Copics.

Once I colored the image I used the beautiful dies from Whimsy's Stamps called Hand Stitched Nested Rectangles.  I love these dies as the stitch is just a bit wonky.  So it leaves this very whimsy border to your creations while keeping the edge nice and clean.

I stamped the sentiment in Versafine Clair Nocturne from the sentiment set called Everyday Mini Sentiments.

Whimsy Stamps Release Day 2 - Star Galaxy

Hey everyone!  I have been MIA but I promise you I have a whole month of fun and gorgeous creations to share with you.  I've been working hard on the new release from Whimsy Stamps and you won't be disappointed.  From stencils to stamps to new inks you are going to love what's in store!  DoveArt stamps are now being carried at Whimsy's and they are so beautiful.

Today, I have a fun card I made using the new stencil, Star Galaxy.  For this card I used some fun VersaMagic inks to create the background.  Then added Gold Glitz Delicata to the stencil to get these fun gold stars.

I decided to turn this into a shaker card using a die that Whimsy has recently discontinued.  Denise promises however, a new heart die will be in stock soon.  I stamped the sentiment with the fun stamp set called Happy Headlines.  Isn't this stencil GREAT!  I love a starry background and this stencil makes it easy! 
Don't forget to head over and see the whole new release at Whimsy Stamps Blog!
