Flower Puff Best Friends

The NEW Flower Puffs rubber background stamp is super popular and there are so many great sample ideas with the stamp...I'm loving all of them!  For my card I embossed the flowers with white embossing powder on watercolor paper and used distress inks to watercolor it 

I used chipboard and the NEW Bold ABC die set to cut out the FRIENDS sentiment.  This alphabet die is a great value and is just the right size...not too big and not too small.

I used the "You're My Always" set for the bottom sentiment which was heat embossed with white embossing powder on a scrap piece of black card stock.  I trimmed the end at an angle and glued it flat onto the background.  I bent the left edge up a bit with my finger.

The "Best" sentiment is from the "FurEver Friends" die set and was the perfect final touch to this card.

I hope you have a great day!

Paper Door Beaucoup Bouquet

Oh how I LOVE this new PAPER DOOR, it's called Beaucoup Bouquet (try saying that 3 times fast).  It just debuted and you may want to hurry and get yours because this is a sure quick sell-out kit!

The sentiment is from a new set released this month called Beaucoup Bouquet Sentiments and it's a perfect addition to your PAPER DOOR kit.  The Stitched Oval is one of my favorite go-to dies for many of my cards.

The stamp set in the PAPER DOOR kit is a whole bunch of flowers and leaves and you can build all kinds of floral arrangements.  There is a huge matching die set included in the kit too!

So for this card I embossing the flowers with white embossing powder onto watercolor paper and used distress inks to watercolor them.  Then cut them out with the matching dies and arranged them along the oval path.  Included in the Beaucoup Bouquet PAPER DOOR kit is the white embossing powder and 3 distress ink cubes (mermaid lagoon, spiced marmalade and mustard seed).  I combined the mermaid lagoon and mustard seed to create the green leaves.  And used the mustard seed and marmalade for the flowers.  I also added a touch of worn lipstick distress ink (not in the kit).

You can see a full unboxing video HERE, to view the entire contents of the Beaucoup Bouquet PAPER DOOR kit and order yours today :).

Merci Beaucoup!

Sweet & Salty Meets Farmhouse Vases

Are you enjoying all of the new Whimsy summer products, I know I am?  For my post today I've made a shaker card and have combined the NEW Sweet and Salty set with (whodathunkit) one of the Farmhouse Collection sets called Farmhouse Vases.  I think these two unlikely sets are a great match for each other ;) what do you think?

I stamped the mason jar from Farmhouse Vases and hand cut it out.  Then I sponged on some blue ink using the Making Waves stencil (such a cool stencil that has 3 different wave options).  Once I had the waves stenciled I stamped the seaweed which is also from the Farmhouse Vases set.  The Sweet and Salty mermaid was stamped and then I used a white gel pen to dot on the waterline following the stencil path.

I used the Shaker Maker Combo Die for my shaker circle and some of the pretty Star Spangled sequins for the inside. 
The dotted texture on the white background is from the Falling Dots embossing folder.

Have a great day!

Soul Mutt - No Greater Friend

This is a card that I demo'd at the Whimsy Retreat a couple weeks ago.  I used the new Soul Mutt stamp set combined with the Farmhouse Fabric background. 

I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks to watercolor the image and cut it out with one of the new Stitched Ovals dies.

the sentiment is from the new An Unbreakable Bond stamp set.  The paw was stamped with distress ink.

The spots were stamped on after the image dried.  The Soul Mutt set has several different spots so you can create a unique dog every time.

For the cool chevron stripes on the sides of the card I stamped the Farmhouse Fabric background (one of my favs), with kraft ink on white cardstock then I cut it into strips as shown in the photo above.
And depending on which way you adhere the strips you can get a totally different look...

see...I used the same cut strips for both of these cards but glued the left one on with the wide part of the strip toward the edges of the card and for the card on the right the strips are glued on with the thin part of the strips toward the edge of the card.  One stamp two results ;).

Hope you have a great day!

Salty Hair

If you liked last months summer release from Whimsy Stamps you're "shore" (you know I can not pass up a pun) to love this month too!  Today I'm sharing with you the NEW "Salty Hair" clear stamp set.

I stamped the little mermaid and seaweed and colored them with Copic markers then fussy cut them out.

I cut out 3 different sized stitched circles and sponged on distress inks

I sprinkled on some drops of plain water and added some water with my paintbrush under the clam shell.

Oh...if only that sentiment were true.

I took this picture before I opened my shades, I thought it made it look a little underwaterish.

I hope you enjoy seeing this Salty Hair card and I hope you are enjoying your summer.
