SOSS #139 - J is for Joke


Time for a new SOSS challenge! This time the topic is joke.


I thought of using a Trump image but who likes telling a bad joke? Instead I made a happy background using Distress Oxide Picked Rasperry, Peacock Feathers, Mustard Seed, and Twisted Citron with Tim Holtz Stencils.

I used the MFT Slider Surprise Dies, stamping the Whimsy Stamps Grim Reaper sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black. The Katzelkraft Aviator image is stamped in Versafine Onyx Black as well and colored with Zig Real Brush Watercolor Pens.

Don't all the happy colors make you think the knock knock joke will be really cute?


Joke’s on you! LOL.  This is soooooo me. If I’m not expecting you, then chances are I won’t answer the door. Heck, even if I am expecting you, I might not. Byyyyyyye!

Whimsy - Cupcakes


Have you seen the latest Whimsy Stamps release?  Finally a cupcake set that covers all the bases! I used 3 of the 4 cupcakes in the Calories Schmalories set to create this colorful background.


I stamped the images in Versamark onto Strathmore Bristol Smooth Cardstock then heat-embossed with Ranger White Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder.

I used Peerless Watercolor to color them.



Once that was dry, I diecut the new Whimsy Birthday Word Die from the card front as well as from black craft foam. I adhered the foam to the card base then the cupcake birthday word on top of that.

I stamped the Don't Shop Dogs Happy sentiment above the diecut to complete the card.

ATCAS #163 - Heat


Whew!  It's gettin' hot up in here!  Come join us for the latest Addicted to CAS Challenge where the code word is "heat."


I stamped the Taylored Expressions Summer Grumplings image using Memento Tuxedo Black. I then masked the front and used my Copic airbrush to apply Honey Bee Flames Stencil. That totally sums up how I feel about summer heat!

The image is colored with Copics as well and the sentiment stamped in Versafine Onyx Black.

Whimsy - Pull My Finger


The Whimsy Stamps July release is available now and it's fabulous if I must say so myself . . . and I must!

Here I'm using Dragon Pull My Finger which cracks me up. I know plenty of boys who will get a kick out of this--a few gals too!

I first used a flame stencil and my Copic airbrush to create a fiery background.  I cut this out using Whimsy Pierced and Stitched Circle Dies.


That done, I stamped Dragon Pull My Finger with Memento Tuxedo Black. I colored him up using the above Copics.


I adhered the dragon onto the circle and then the circle onto the dove gray background. Notice I cut a slice off of the circle at the bottom; the circle with the placement of the A Boy's Dream sentiment  reminds me of a lightbulb.

See you soon with another Whimsy July release card!
