Whimsy - Lakeside Sympathy

I'm bolstering my sympathy card collection although this card could be a masculine birthday or just a thinking of you.  It's quite lovely, isn't it?

I used masking (eg, a circle for the sun cut from a Whimsy Pierced and Stitched Circle Die), strips of paper and Distress Oxide Salty Ocean, Worn Lipstick, Ripe Persimmon, and Mustard Seed to create the background. I used Distress Ink Black Soot for the island as it's far darker than the DO version.

I then added a selection of the Whimsy Create a Scene Forest images.  There are trees and rocks and all sorts of things to create your own little nature picture.

I diecut the entire scene using one of the Wonky Stitched Rectangle Dies and the embossed sentiment using a Quick Strip.

I added a Build an Island bird then drew in the reflection below.  Btw, after sponging the DO, I decided to add a bit more vibrancy to the colors using my Copic airbrush. Puff, puff and done.

Whimsy - Sweet Mouse

Hello, sweetlings! I LOVE chocolate, dark preferred but in a pinch....  I think the Whimsy Candy Mouse is adorable. As an image.  I cannot imagine what I would do if I reached for a chocolate and found a mouse. Better alive than a carcass tho!  LOL.

I stamped the Curly Qs Background onto pink cardstock using Distress Oxide Vintage Photo and my MISTI. I then cut out a shaker aperture using a Pierced and Stitched Circle Die.  

The sentiment is a combo of Candy Mouse and Bold ABC. Frosted letters!

Be sure to check out the other fab offerings from Whimsy too!

SOSS - #151 Headache

And we're baaaaack! Did you miss us?  Of course, you did!

The first Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers challenge for 2020 is #151 H for Headache.

I went to town on my background using lots of stencils, lots of ink and a little grunge paste. Getting messy is fun!

I colored the Katzelkraft Booly Dog with a really bright Zig pink. That dog's expression kills me, it's so fun and cute!

Whimsy - Punny Valentines

Ack!  Have you seen the new Whimsy Valentine Puns set? I love, love, love it.  It's cute AND dorky--perfect for me and mine!  The rest of the release is wonderful too!

I'm using the new Wonky Stitched Rectangle Dies and Starring Hearts 6x6 Paper too. The papers coordinate so well with this set.

I added a few Gothic Dies hearts too. The graduated sizes were perfect for these. Did you noticed the offset cards in the Just My Type card? Nifty!  Here I used gold mirror board along with some coordinating washi.

I colored everything with Copics. The images are on the smaller so really fast to color.  Woo hoo!
