Spiral Roses Thanks So Much

For today's post I'm featuring a really pretty rubber background stamp called Spiral Roses


I first heat embossed with white embossing powder on Bristol cold pressed watercolor paper.


I wet my paper with water first then floated/dabbed on some purple inks (Tim Holtz wilted violet and dusty concord distress inks). After it was dry I went back add added darker highlights to random areas with the concord grape ink.


Once it was all dry I cut a portion of the completed Spiral Roses into a square and glued that to a black card base. For the top I cut off another portion of the background and fussy cut around the flowers then glued that down to the black card base.


I used the scallop from the Kinetic Curved Basics die for the white strip and stamped the sentiment from Everyday Scripted Sentiments.


For a final touch I added a couple of Jelly Fish Sparkletz which added just the perfect purple bling on the sentiment area. I LOVE all these Sparkletz and they're even better in real life.

Tabby Tigers TOO CUTE for Words

Isn't this little Tabby Tiger just too cute for words?! And all the other little tabbies in the set are just as cute! 

While this PAPER DOOR stamp set is called Tabby Tigers, they could simply be a different color to make them tabby kitties. For that matter this little guy could be an orange tabby. But for today I'm using the tiger patterned paper included in the PAPER DOOR kit so he's a cutie tiger.


I used the square from the Shaker Maker Combo die to cut out the tiger paper frame. This die is 5.25 x 5.25 and is PURRfect for square cards, I rarely make a square card without it (love).


I stamped the Tabby Tiger and the birdie, colored them with Copic markers and cut them out with their matching dies (included in the kit).

I heat embossed the "TOO CUTE" sentiment which is from a separate 3x4 stamp set also included in the Tabby Tigers Paper Door kit. Then stamped the coordinating sentiment and cut that out with one of the Quick Strips dies, told ya I would use this die set on almost every card I make from now on ha.


I added foam tape to the back of the tiger frame and adhered that to a 5.25 x 5.25 white card base. Then put the completed black square with the sentiment and critters glued it flat in the center. The tiger is popped up on foam tape too.

Whimsy Stamps Adopt Don't Shop Campaign

Hey there Whimsy fans and animal lovers, have you seen the NEW Adopt Don't Shop Cats and Adopt Don't Shop Dogs clear stamp sets yet? And did you know that Whimsy Stamps will donate $1USD for every Adopt Cats and Adopt Dogs stamp sets that are sold?!

And to celebrate this campaign we're having a Facebook party from Feb 14-17th come and join the fun, games and prizes for all our animal lover friends! You can find the event HERE.


Today I'm sharing a card made using the Adopt Don't Shop Cats set, and the NEW Peekaboo Window 3 die which is a perfect match for this and so many other stamp sets.


I cut out two Peekaboo Window 3 dies, one from white card stock and one from the pinkish cardstock.  


I stamped the kitties on the white panel and colored them with Copic markers. It's so fun watching them come to life when coloring them different ways.


Then I stamped the paws on each of the white circles and colored them with Copic markers too.


I used one of the Quick Strip dies and stamped the "adopt" sentiment, then snipped off the end and added a little rhinestone for some shiney ;).


I matted everything onto a grey card base and popped up just the large white panel with foam tape to give the main image a little more dimension.

If you love animals and if you like our message feel free to share the Facebook event and/or anything else about our efforts.

Have a GRRRReat day and thanks for your support!
