Doggie Little Graduate

Pin It


Happy Hump Day Everyone! Here is a card I made using one of the new Whimsy images from the April release. The cue image is called Doggie Little Graduate and is from Whimsy's Crissy Armstrong Collection.


I colored the image using Copic Markers. Other Whimsy products I used: Heart Border Die from Whimsy's Shapeology collection and the sentiment is from the Clearly Whimsy *NEW* 'Hand Lettered Thoughts' set.


My second card is a CAS style card featuring Clearly Whimsy's *NEW* 'Mom's Layered Flowers' by Nina-Marie Trapani.

I used the heart die from the Sketched Elephants die set to create the heart stencil. I also used the Clearly Whimsy  'Distressed Backgrounds'. Sentiment, little hearts and flowers are from the *NEW* 'Mom's Layered Flowers' set.


Thanks for your visit.

Hugs,

Here is what I came up with:

First I stamped the large flowers with Versamark ink and heat embossed using snow white detailed embossing powder. I then sponged the background orange with Distress Inks Spiced Marmalade. Then I stamped the smaller flowers in the background with Avery Elle pigment ink 'Fizz' and used the same stamp to 'fill' the large embossed flower petals using Mama Elephant pigment ink 'Apple'. The sentiment and little heart is also included in the set. To embellish I used 2 orange sequins and Stardust Stickles on some of the flowers.

Clearly Whimsy Stamps March Release Day 4

Welcome to Day 4 of our ...
Clearly Whimsy Stamps March Release News and Inspiration


This week we will showcase 4*BRAND NEW* Clear stamps,and 2*BRAND NEW* Shapeology crafting die!    All of these new products are available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store and from selected Whimsy Stamps retailers on Friday.

 Today we are sharing creations made using our Hedgehugs Clear Stamp set
.

 

Our design team members and Special Guests have been working hard on their creations featuring these new products. Visit the Whimsy Inspirations Blog to see all their gorgeous work and to visit the DT's and GDT's blogs.

Here is my project for today using this super cute stamp set 'Hedgehugs' and the Hand Stitched Nested Rectangles Die Set.

 
I stamped the images onto Fabriano Artistico hot pressed, extra white watercolor paper using Versamark ink and heat embossed with detailed snow white embossing powder. I colored using Clean Color real brush pens. I love these because you can really achieve so many different effect with these. From a distressed look to an almost Copic like look. Also fine detailed work is possible due to the fine real brush nibs - see the grass. I am usually a real Copic enthusiast but at the moment I am totally hooked with these :-D
I then cut out the image using the largest of the Hand Stitched Nested Rectangles Dies and adhered it to my card base with foam tape. The sentiment is also from the 'Hedgehugs' set.

Only embellie is a black enamel dot. Oh I love these dots but they are quite expensive. :-/ While searching the web I found a tutorial on how to make your own from pony and perler beads.... soooo simple! And these beads are available at a very affordable price. Just put them on a parchement lined baking sheet and bake at 400F for 8-12 min., depending on your oven. Make sure the whole in the bead faces up and they will melt beautifully into shiny dots :-) It is a bit smelly though, so make sure you open the windows and your kitchen is well ventilated. These beads are available in tons of different colors and also come in different sizes. The perler beads are even available striped or multicolored. 

Hope you liked my creation and please come back tomorrow for our last inspiration day and  then these wonderful new stamp sets and dies will be availabe in the Whimsy Store!

Hugs,
