Listen to Your Art!

Hello friends!
Hope you had a great week! It's Michele here with a card using my favorite new set from Whimsy Stamps, Artist Toolkit! I stamped the images in a light grey ink and water colored them.  I fussy cut them out and added glossy accents to the paint portion. 
I used the new Array of Rainbows die set.  I cut the rainbow and stars out of water colored paper and water colored it.  I wanted to add a bit of interest to the background so I stamped the new Marble Background stamp in light grey. I stamped the sentiment in black Memento ink and adhered the rainbow, paint, and stars.  I added a few star Sparkletz too. :)
Thank you so much for stopping by today!

You're a Treasure

Happy Sunday! This is Jeanette here to share a new card with you.  I was so thrilled to see the new  Array of Rainbows Die Set that was included in the August release.  It is such a versatile set and was the starting off point for this card.

I thought it would be fun to create a scene with one of the mermaids from the Mermaid Birthday Clear Stamps and combine it with a rainbow.  I think that one of the mermaids from the new Mermaid Escape set would also work very well!

To create the rainbow, I die-cut the larger rainbow from the set out of white card-stock and then colored the strips using copic markers.  I used the Wavy Nested Frames Die Set to create a window and then added a piece of vellum to define the water and sky line.  I lined the very top of the vellum with Nuvo glitter to serve as some sea foam.

The images were colored using various Copic markers and then fussy cut before adhering them to the card.

Hauntingly Sweet

Hello Whimsy Friends,  it's Iris here today!

It won't be long and we'll be starting fall season (actually next month already...eeek!) and with fall comes also Halloween. I have to admit I am not too much into Halloween. But for me it also means the start of the Holiday season, which IS my favorite season. Therefore I am definitely looking forward to that time of the year :-D   If I do Halloween cards I like more the sweet and funny ones not so much the scary stuff. This is why I liked to combine the more scary Goth Skulls background stamp with the cute and sweet Candy Corn Dress Up clear stamp set.

I inked one half of a white cardstock panel with Distress Inks Spiced Marmalade and Squeezed Lemonade. I then partially stamped the Goth Skulls background with Versafine Clair Nocturn ink over the inked part to create my background. Then I stamped one of the cute Candy Corn characters onto Copic friendly paper using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored with Copics and fussy cut the image. The sentiment is included with the Candy Corn Dress Up clear stamp set and was cut out using the Quick Strip die set.

My card base is an A2 size top-fold card. I layered the background panel onto a black cardstock panel and glued it to my card base. The image and the sentiment strip were adhered using foam tape to give a bit of dimension to the card. Four sequins in matching colors finish off my card.

Here is a list with all the Whimsy products I've used on my card:
