Feathers

Pin It

Hello Everyone, I hope you are all enjoying your weekend! Today I like to share a  card I made using Whimsy's Feather and Flourish sentiment set by SC Design.

A clean and simple card but I like how it turned out. The card base is heavy weight watercolor paper. The color swooshes are made using Sennelier watercolors. Sentiment and feathers are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Only embellishments are a few pink rhinestones.


Thanks for stopping by today,

Always & Forever

Pin It


Happy Saturday! Summer is in full force down here in Florida and we are enjoying a long weekend with the holiday yesterday and a day off on Monday *yay* That means lots of R&R = being crafty, sitting in my fav sun lounger by the pool with my kindle, sleeping in, watching favorite movies and "playing" in the kitchen ;-)

I also have some Whimsy News for you! Keep your eyes peeled, there's a new rubber release right around the corner (next week) which you definitely don't want to miss!!!

Meanwhile, until I can show you the new goodies,  I made a card using a sentiment set and die from the last rubber release:


The sentiment is from SC Designs 'Life's Moments' set and the delicate Butterfly Border is a Shapeology die also from SC Designs. The single butterfly is a cut out element from the border. The background was created using an alcohol marker (ShinHan in my case) and the Tim Holtz Spritzer Tool.


I embossed the butterfly border several times using UTEE for a porcelain like look.


The cut out butterfly was embossed with Frantage Shabby Pink embossing powder and decorated with a pearl brad.



Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

See you again on Monday with some great news and also a chance to win some yummy rubber! :-)

Hugs,

All Star

Pin It



Hello Everyone, wishing you all a wonderful Saturday! I have a little card to share with you today which I made using a sentiment set and die from Whimsy stamps.

I used the Pierced Stacking Star die from Whimsy by SC Design and the Boy Talk sentiment set also by SC Design. This is a pretty simple card but I think just perfect as a male card. I also did not used much embellies just 2 small star brads and a bakers twine

To make the sentiment stand out a little more on the kraft cardstock I actually stamped it with water mark ink and embossed it using black detail embossing powder.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend!

Hugs,

Fluttering by...

Pin It

Happy TGIF Everyone! Fluttering by to say Hi with a Whimsy Stamps creation from the Cathy Delanssay collection.

But first things first. Whimsy Stamps is looking for guest designers with great coloring abilities! If you are a talented colorist and coloring is your passion then come and join us as guest designer!




Onto my creation now...


This beauty is called 'The Little Princess' and I colored it using Twinkling H2O's on hot press watercolor paper. It has such a beautiful sparkle and shine to it, unfortunately it can't be seen on the photos. The sentiment is from SC Designs' 'Fluttering By' set.
The delicate Butterfly Border is a Shapeology die also from SC Designs. The single butterfly is a cut out element from the border. I spritzed it with glimmer mist and added Frantage shabby blue embossing powder. Papers are Whimsy Designer Papers from the Marshmellow Delight and  In The Garden sets. Other embellishments are from my stash.

Here's a close-up where I tried to catch some of the shimmer on the image


Last but not least an artsy shot ;-)

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

Hugs,
