Tropical Florals

Tropical Florals is another fabulous background stamp from Whimsy Stamps (released just yesterday).  I wanted to create a tropical inked background and I love how the white embossing pops off those beautiful Distress Oxide inks.  I used Salvaged Patina, Squeezed Lemonade and Abandoned Coral.

I inked up a piece of card with the Salvaged Patina and popped it behind a frame I made using the Scallop Circle Frames die set.  I then die cut and layered up the "You" from the You Are die set and adhered in place.  I stamped the "hello" before adhering the die cut.

Flower Wishes - new release

Whimsy Stamps have a new release out and for my first card for this release I've used the pretty Flower Wishes stamp setI stamped and heat embossed the image on to copic friendly paper then used the following copics to colour it:

Bottle and water: BG01, 000, 0000
Flowers: RV55, 52, 10
Leaves: YG17, 03; BG75, 57

I fussy cut the image as I don't have the matching Flower Wishes Outline Dies then mounted this on to a die cut background.  I used the Lattice A2 die, I really love the white on white textured effect.  I heat embossed a sentiment from the stamp set adhered that in place with some foam tape.

Beach setting

I've need quite a lot of these hello type cards and thought this new Beach Setting rubber stamp from Whimsy Stamps would fit the bill. I coloured the image with copic markers:

Sky BG000, 0000
Sand dunes: E33, 41, 40
Railing and floor: W1, 0, 00
Table and chair seat: E15 13, 11
Chair and vase: B97, 95, 93
Cup and flowers: Y17, 15, 13

I thought this stamp made the perfect photo shot so hand cut a polaroid frame and stamped a sentiment from the Simple Sentiment Strips then adhered this to a background.  I stamped the Criss Cross Gingham Background in Pumice Stone distress oxide ink and matted this on to pale grey card.

Make a wish

 Another bright card from me today, I'm going to need a dark room after all this vibrant colour I've been using!

I used that gorgeous Taffy Slimline Paper Pack from Whimsy Stamps, love the colours that I would normally shy away from.  I then die cut a white layer with the Kinetic Curved Basics Die Set and trimmed to fit an A2 card base. 

I used the candles from the Slimline Birthday Scallops Die Set, they are the perfect size to make a statement on the card.  I cut 3 from patterned paper and 2 from white copic friendly card then coloured those with YG17, YG13, YG11 markers.

The sentiment was made using part of a sentiment from the Simple Sentiment Strips Clear Stamps and then stamped and die cut the Quirky ABC Clear Stamps and Quirky ABC Outlines Die Set.

Slimline Revealers Die

Whimsy Stamps has a new die that they've added to their slimline range called Revealers 1 Die Set and I've used it to make an under the sea card.

I started of with one of the sheets from the Under the Sea paper pack, then die cut and inked the sea bed using the Revealers 1 die. I used Antique Linen and Frayed Burlap and a scrap of torn paper to add dimension to the sand.  I raised the sea bed up with foam pads and adhered in place.  

I then stamped, coloured and fussy cut some fish from the Fish Fancy Stamp Set and also copic coloured some die cuts from the Build an Ocean die set which I adhered in place and then finished off with a sentiment from the Fishing Dragons Clear Stamps and some clear bubbles from my stash.
