For this card I paired them with the Peekaboo Window 4 die and the NEW Birthday Word and Shadow die set. I love these two dies together and with the Giraffe's it makes for and adorable peek-a-boo card. 


Here is a closer look. I used white fine glitter paper for the window background. This adds some subtle shimmer to the card. Not too much to be over powering though. I still wanted the Giraffe's to stand out.  


I colored with Copics (see list below) and added enamel dots and buttons for decoration.

More Giraffe's - A Thank You Card

I am back today with my 3rd PaperDoor creation using this months uber adorable Giraffes kit! You just gotta love these Giraffes <3! This time I opted for a pretty simple Thank You card.


I used the leaves stamps from the kit and stamped with Versamark ink onto white cardstock. I heat embossed using white embossing powder. Using mowed lawn distress ink and a dense brush I inked the background over the leaves and sprinkled on some more green ink. Once the ink was dry I carefully wiped off the ink from the white leaves and making them stand out even more.


I attached the Giraffe and the sentiment with foam tape to add some dimension. Layered the image panel onto a brown designer paper panel from the Giraffes pack and that onto a A2 sized card.



A few gemstones finish off my Giraffe Thank You card.


Here are the products from the Whimsy Store I've used:

Crafty Foam Tape White    Memento Full-Size Ink Pad - Tuxedo Black

Beach Retreat!

Happy Sunday Everyone! I'm here today with a CAS watercolor card showcasing the Beach Retreat clear stamp set. This is a wonderful and versatile set and makes for a quick card. It is also ideal for watercolor beginners because of the simple scene.  

I stamped on the back of a Canson XL 140lb watercolor paper with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink. To color the image I used my Albrecht Dürer watercolor pencils from Faber Castell. The sentiment is included in the set.


I used a black card base and layered the image onto a piece of the Mermaid designer papers


For a bit of bling I finished off my card by adding some gemstones. 


Here is a list of all the Whimsy goodies I used on my card:

*NEW Beach Retreat Clear Stamps   *NEW 6x6 Paper Pack - Mermaid   VersaFine CLAIR Ink Pad - Nocturne (black)
