Elegant and Simple Creations with Whimsy Stamps

Hi everyone!  Today, I share a few simple cards using some of my favorite Whimsy products.  Often, we need a quick card that looks beautiful.  I love the new border dies for this very thing.

I simple made a card base and used the die to chop the card front off.  Took a pretty piece of paper, and adhered it to the back of the front flap of the card.  Simple and beautiful.  I finished with a simple sentiment from the new Country Wreath set.

For the next card, I did something very similar, only I placed the die at an angle.  I also used the new farmhouse basket stencil with the gold delicata ink.  I finished it off with a sentiment from You're My Favorite, stamped in Versafine Clair Nocturne.

Two simple cards made in no time!  I hope you like today's creations and will try this on your own!  Make sure to head to the Whimsy Blog for more amazing products!

Spring Flowers in a Pail - Whimsy Stamps and DoveArt


Hi ya everyone!  I love the new Jennifer Dove Art stamps at Whimsy Stamps!  This is called Flower Pail.  I really enjoyed coloring the leaves and flowers of this stamp.  I colored them in my Copics on Hammermill Cover Copy Paper.

After coloring the stamp I used Wedding Dress irRESISTable to make the small white dots.  After, I mounted on some older card stock I had in my stash.  Have you checked out the DoveArts stamps at Whimsy yet?  There are so many to choose from!

A stitched VooDoo Love card!!!

Hi ya everyone!  I wanted to try something fun today using these cute little Voodoo dolls from Doodle Dragon Studios!  Passionate Paper Creations and Friends has Doodle Dragon Studios as a sponsor this weekend, so come on over and check out all the fun!  There's a whole fun pack of them for only $5.  You can find VooDoo Love HERE.  They are a Valentine set but honestly, I think they are cute for any card!  I decided to color them in Copics and add a bit of blending solution to make them look roughed up a bit..

I thought he would be perfect with this awesome sentiment from SugarPea Designs called Knit Wit!  I then used the Hand Stitched Nested Rectangles from Whimsy Stamps to cut the entire scene out.  I then added some fun embellishments and Wedding Dress irRESISTible for the white puffy dots.  I really do love these little guys and think they are super fun for birthday cards.

The Swish Stencil from Whimsy!

I used the new stencil Swish from Whimsy stamps to create this fun background on my card.  I used Brilliance Mediterranean Blue, Brilliance Platinum and VersaMagic Sky Blue to create the background colors.  I love it!  I then cut the stenciled paper with the Rectangle Nested Stitched Dies and raised the center piece with foam tape. 

Finally, I chose a piece of blue cardstock and stamped with VersaMark Ink and then white embossing powder the sentiment from Bold Statements!  I then added some simple sequence.

Easter Lily - Introducing DoveArt to Whimsy Stamps

Hi ya everyone!  I was super excited about the news that Jennifer Dove was going to be designing and selling her line of stamps at Whimsy!  She has gorgeous natural designs that are so simple to color.   The best part, if you're a novice these stamps are great at helping you find areas you should shadow.  Also, if you are an advanced Copic user you can add your own details.

I found some gorgeous Lily's online that had this color scheme and decided to give it a shot!  I think they turned out beautiful.  To see the whole DoveArts line head to Whimsy Stamps!

Thanks for GREEN!!!

Hi ya everyone!  I just wanted to share this little St. Paddy's day card I made using the set Gnome Sweet Gnome from Whimsy.  This is a set that once gone will be gone forever, so if you haven't picked yours up yet, do so soon!  I colored the gnome in Copics and stamped the sentiment in Versafine Clair Nocturne.  The little clovers are stamped in memento ink called cottage ivy.

I also used the lattice background and background buddies stamp set.  These are some of the most versatile and fun stamps from Whimsy!  I watercolored the background and then added the background lattice with VersaMark and then added white embossing powder.  After heat embossing I added the little four leaf clovers from the background buddy set.  Then heat embossed those.

Since this set is on it's way out at Whimsy here is another inspiration shot!  Enjoy and don't forget to pick yours up today.  Links are listed below.  Just click on the stamp set you are interested in!

Missing you today

Hey everyone!  Isn't this girl a cutie?  This is an image from Conie Fong Art called Susie Sunshine. This is a new stamp company to me, but I find her images quite sweet.  She's got a lot of adorable animals too.

She was colored in Copics.  I used some fun plaid paper from Lawn Fawn and matched it with cardstock and sparkly ribbon tape.  This card was created for Passionate Paper Creations and Friends on Facebook.  I feel like most of the crafting community is found on Facebook and Passionate Paper Creations is a great place to find discounts, share your creations and be inspired by other artists in the community.  Head over and check out all the great fun!
