How adorable is this Doggie and Kite! I submitted this card for a magazine and it didn't get published (I know GASP), so you get the pleasure of some step-by-step instruction on how to create it. How cool is that?!
Other Supplies used: Memento Tuxedo Black stamp pad, cutter, liquid adhesive, tape runner, foam pop-up tape, Scissors, Nuvo Crystal Drops (Ripened Pumpkin, Red Berry, English Mustard), die cut machine, white cardstock, green cardstock
·Color clouds on compatible white cardstock.
·Die cut cloud background using largest rectangle die from Shaker Maker Combo die
·Die cut the slider using largest slider piece from the Slip ‘n Slide die set and both small circle dies from set.
·Pop up the rectangle cloud piece layer using a single layer of foam tape onto the card base.
·Adhere the cut out slider piece insert within the slider window, directly on card base.
·Create the slider mechanism using a single layer of 1/4 inch foam pop-up tape sandwiched between the two small die cut circles and slide into the die cut opening with one circle inside and one on top of slider opening.
·Color Doggie and Kite with your favorite coloring medium and cut out.
·Adhere image to exposed slider circle. Check to make sure slider works and the image is in a desired position both up and down.
·Color Brick Wall background and cut to desired size. (2 1/4 x 4 1/4)
·Pop up the brick wall with a double layer of pop-up foam tape onto cloud base layer. **Make sure you do not block slider area with foam tape.
·Cut out clouds using cloud die. Adhere some to card front with tape runner and pop-up one of the clouds if desired. Keep pop up cloud single layer to not block slider mechanism.
·Create a flower box by cutting a 3/4 X 10 inch strip of paper. Stamp with the Farmhouse Shiplap background stamp. Color with favorite coloring medium.
·Fold a mountain fold at first score, valley fold on second score and mountain on third score. Repeat on other side. End pieces should overlap. Adhere together. You have just created a flower box for your card that can collapse down for mailing. Neat huh?
·Glue to front lower portion of the card with the overlap being hidden towards the back.
·Add thin strips of paper in complimenting color for Flower box edging to complete the look.
·Cut strips of grass with the green cardstock and embellish flower box and lower card front.
·Die cut flower stems using Christmas Branches die and adhere inside flower box
·Die cut flowers using the Shaker Maker Combo Die set and adhere to the stems
It is hard to find a good stamp to create Thanksgiving cards with. Here I have used two that pair together perfectly...well three if you include the delicious background. This Turkey is from the latest Whimsy release. He is the perfect Turkey for this occasion!
It is funny how I am not a fan of Halloween, passing out candy, decorating, but I love skulls and skeletons, webs, and ghosts. Sometimes I wonder about my brain. If you love those things and more you gotta check out the latest release from Whimsy Stamps. Here are some samples from myself and a guest design team member using the Web Background.
I created this card like a door with a latch....how spooky is that?
Copics: C1 - C10 E51 E31 E35 E57

You know how I love to try to find ways to combine images? Well this one was super fun to not only combine this versatile Heart Tree with Teddy Bear Hugs, but also turn it into a shaker card. I think I am going to get a bunch of use out of the tree stamp! They are now available through Whimsy Stamps!
If you follow my blog you know I am also a fan of background stamps. You can create your own paper to match your project. I used the Gingham Background for this one.
It is release week at Whimsy Stamps and I have a fun card to show you. I combined two different stamps to create this window card. Using Kitty 'n Pumpkin and Web Background I created this card front. I used a circle die to cut out the opening and make the kitty appear like he is poking out in front of the moon. To create the moon all i did was color white paper in a circle with Copic BG's and added a little BV to create simple "craters"
Of course a card isn't complete without a chippie sentiment and a little bling. So that is what I added to finish it off!
I used Copic C's to color up the kitty...the darkest was the C10.
