Farmhouse Thank You

I love anything farmhouse and for today's card I'm using some of our Whimsy Stamps Farmhouse Collection products for my thank you card.

I started out with a white card matte and sponged on some light brown ink all across the bottom. Then I used a darker brown ink and sponged on the pattern using the Farmhouse Basket stencil.

I stamped the Farmhouse Wreath above the basket area and colored it with Copic markers. Then stamped the sentiment inside. You can build all kinds of custom sentiments with this set and mix-n-match with the Farmhouse Vases set too.

I used the Farmhouse Vases set and stamped some of the twigs randomly near the basket line.  Then stamped the vase on a separate piece of paper, colored it with Copic markers, hand-cut it out and popped it up with foam tape.
I matted everything into a kraft colored card base to complete my farmhouse thank you card.

St. Patrick's Day Build a Basket

Top o' the mornin' to ya and HAPPY St. Patrick's Day!

The Build a Basket die set has lots of different elements and for my card today I decided to make a pot-o-gold with it for St. Patrick's Day. Keep reading to find a couple of quick tips about how I made gold coins and the handles on the pot.

I die-cut the black kettle and sponged on a little white ink around the edges. Then (tip 1) I used the bow from the die set to make the handles, brilliant huh - lol.  I cut the shamrock out of  green Glitter Tape by (tip 2) first sticking the tape to a piece of cardstock then cutting it out with the shamrock die. Then did the same thing with gold Glitter Tape and cut out a bunch of coins.

I used the new Pierced and Stitched Circle die set for the white circle and stamped the sentiment from the Shamrock Swirl clear stamps set. Then I adhered the kettle with foam tape and added a few extra coins "falling" off the side.

I added a strip of the gold Glitter Tape down the left side of a white card base.  Then stamped the Buffalo Plaid background with black ink onto green card stock and added that on top. 

The Build a Basket is really fun to work with and there are a bunch of different was to use it. I'm already thinking of a Halloween cauldron and of course there are lots of ideas for spring/Easter and just an everyday basket with many ideas for one die set!

Kooky Monster Candy

This Kooky Monster cracks me up, I can almost hear his deep goofy monster voice speaking the sentiment. And his greenness is just in time for St. Patty's Day weekend too.

If you're looking for some crafting St. Patty's Day fun come join the Whimsy and Inspiration group event on Facebook. There are games and prizes and LOTS of green inspiration being shared now through Sunday, March 17th.

I started this card off by cutting out THREE of the same Wonky Windows, one in white, one in black and one in lime green.  I glued the black Wonky Window (framing only) onto a white card base.

 I stamped the Kooky Monster on the largest white piece and colored him with Copic markers

And I stamped the candies randomly on the two smaller green pieces

The sentiment was stamped on one of the smaller white pieces. Since I cut 3 different colors I just put the remaining bits into my scraps to use on other projects. 

I popped up the two white pieces on foam tape for dimension and glued the green pieces flat so they were inlaid into the frame.

The Wonky Window 1 die is so cool and works so many ways with so many different stamp sets, and it's definitely a great match with the Kooky Monsters set.
