Favorite Time of Year

Hello and happy Saturday! I’m back to share my last post with Whimsy Stamps as a guest designer. It’s been so fun working with Whimsy and being able to use their awesome products! I can’t believe it’s over already!! Today I’m jumping seasons and sharing a winter card using some of there awesome products. Let’s take a look!

I just love this penguin stamp called Snowflake Penguin. It had been such a long time since I’d used red rubber stamps prior to working with Whimsy Stamps, and it was so great to be able to use them again! They stamp like a dream. I colored him in with my Copic markers. Because I wanted the ground to extend past where the actual stamp went I used my Copic multiliner to draw in some more snow/ground so that it would cover the width of my card.

I fussy cut the little guy out and set him aside. To create my background I used some purple and blue alcohol inks to create this arctic looking sky. I love the way it turned out! I heat embossed the word Favorite from the You’re My Favorite stamp set with gold embossing powder at the top of the alcohol ink piece. I love this scripty font. IMG_2071

To finish the sentiment I stamped “time of the year” with VersaMark ink as well and heat embossed white embossing powder over top. I trimmed that down and added it to the card with foam tape. I adhered my fussy cut penguin over the alcohol panel and, of course, I had to add some white gel pen accents. And that is it for my very last post as a Whimsy Stamp guest designer! Like I said, I can’t believe this month is over! It was so fun working with these adorable products, and I’m thankful to have been given the opportunity to do so! Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I’ll see you again soon with another card!!

YNS September Release Blog Hop!

Hi, everybody!! Welcome back to the blog. I’m so excited that it’s finally time for the September release to be available, and to show you my new release projects! I love fall crafting, so this is always one of my favorite release of the year. First up, I’m going to share one of my favorite sets from this release, which I previewed on the blog yesterday, Autumn Harvest.

I just love these cute images that are all ready for fall inspired cards and projects. I think the scarecrow is my favorite, but that fox comes in a close second! I used this set yesterday for my project, along with some other new products.

And now to my projects for today! As I mentioned yesterday, I’m really into using my alcohol inks lately, and I just had to use them again for my first project of the hop.
IMG_2106.jpgI just love this new One Smart Cookie mini stamp set. There are so many great uses for it. I love the pile of books this cookie is sitting on. I can relate to having a list of books to read, and getting lost in their stories. I decided to make a galaxy background for this card and die cut some hearts from the Stripe-tastic Heart die set for some fun interest. I heat embossed my sentiment with gold embossing powder and popped them on my card with foam tape. I just love how this one turned out!

IMG_2154.jpgFor my next project I used the Ghoultastic Halloween stamp set. I love all the cute little Halloween characters in this set, and could imagine putting them all on a card together. But for this card, I decided to take the sweet little witch and giver her a spooky background to mix her brew in. I painted some gold water color onto an A2 piece of paper and used foam tape to adhere the Star Panel die over top after ink blending a couple blue Distress Oxide inks to create a dark sky look. The sentiment was heat embossed with white embossing powder, and the little witch was colored with Copics and fussy cut out. I added tons of white gel pen accents as well as some white Nuvo drops.

I used the cute new Autumn Harvest stamp set with this sweet little scarecrow and the new Grass Tufts die. I’ve been really into my alcohol inks lately, so I made this fall looking background and die cut the new Falling Leaves Panel die from it. I love the way it turned out!
