Whimsy - Buzzworthy


I'm sure you've been seeing the fabulous creations of my design team members for the latest Whimsy Stamps release all around social media, right? Talk about eye candy!


I started my card by stenciling the base with the new Honeycomb Drips Stencil and Distress Oxide Wild Honey.  I used the Slimline Five Frames Die to help me figure out where the drips would show up best. Yum!


I then stamped the HaBee Birthday sentiments and dotted lines using Versafine Onyx Black. Then I went to town coloring up a few of the new Bizzy Bees and scattering them on the card.  I used a bit of Clear Wink of Stella on the wings and Copics for the actual coloring.


I love how this turned out! Those bees are so darn cute!

Be sure to check out the Whimsy shop to see the whole release.  See you soon!

Whimsy - Birch Frame


Hello!  Today is the first of three Whimsy Stamps releases for July.  Whimsy is moving to smaller releases on the 1st, 10th and 20th of each month for the rest of the year. How cool is that?!


For my card I used the new Birch Frame on the card front, fussy cutting out the center to create an aperture for my little snowy scene.  I colored the frame using Zig 043, 044, 082, and 092.


On the card base I stamped some of the Create a Scene Forest trees using Distress Oxide Evergreen Bough.  I layered a piece of vellum between the card base and front. I then adhered a couple of the deer from the Forest Majesty Dies and used a white pigment pen to add a bit of snow. I may not be able to part with this one at the holidays!

Don't forget to take a gander at the other goodies in the Whimsy shop!

Whimsy - Hey! What's Up?


Oh my goodness, I am a big fan of giraffes and particularly love this new Giraffes Peeking set from Whimsy Stamps. I can think of so many possibilities with it--peeking from the edge of a card, from within an aperture, as a pull tab element, from behind an object or critter, and the list goes on!


Here I stamped the images with Versafine Onyx Black and colored them up with Zigs. I then used the Giraffe Stencil with a bit of Distress Oxide Wild Honey to add a background. Easy peasy!

Remember, these are available to you right now! Be sure to take a gander at the other goodies in the Whimsy shop too!

SOSS #163 - W for Water


Eww, eww, eww!  We've all done it and we all shouldn't have done it and some of us may do it again.  Eww to infinity!  Perhaps you'd rather not jump in that pool, COVID aside, and instead play along with us at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers where the current challenge is Water.


Products used below, of those I could remember:

Whimsy - Bee


Ack!  Isn't this Whimsy Stamps HaBee Birthday set the cutest?!

We had a little release scheduling change so some of the products I'm using won't be available until Tuesday, July 1.  I'm such a tease!  LOL.


I diecut the front panel out of Bizzy Bee 6x6 Paper (coming soon!) using one of the Wonky Stitched Rectangle Dies.

I then diecut another panel using a Frame Doodles Scalloped Rectangle Die and sponged it with Distress Oxide Mustard Seed and the upcoming Honeycomb Drips Stencil.


Next I colored up the HaBee Birthday images using Copics. I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black and diecut the "bee!" using the Bold ABC dies.  I coated the letters with Clear Wink of Stella--so glamorous!


Bee sure to buzz on over to the Whimsy shop to check out the amazing new goodies awaiting you!

Whimsy - Puppy Ice Cream


Whimsy Stamps mini release day is one of my favs!  This time I'm using the puppy from the Polka Dot Pals Kezia set.  When I saw his little tongue sticking out I HAD to have him begging for a cold treat.


I colored up the popsicles Neopolitan style using Zig 062, 072, 092, 202 after I stamped and embossed the images.  I stamped the sentiment using Memento.


I diecut the panel with a Frame Doodles Scalloped Rectangle Die once it was dry and popped it up on a couple of layers of bright pink cardstock.  So cute (and easy!).
