Special Guest - Candice Fisher - Bunny Balloons

I have to tell you, these bunnies from the Bunny Balloons stamp set are one of my all time favorites! They really go so well with the Fly By stamp set and if you haven't heard me all month raving about Deb Davis's collection at Whimsy Stamps you have to see her designs, they are fantastic!

I thought that these stamps are perfect for a baby card and created a simple and soft design using Whimsy Stamps products:

To start my card, I created a 5 x 6.5 card base from thick white cardstock. I then used my cameo silhouette to cut the striped overlay using the same thick white cardstock. Next, I used a circle die to cut through the overlay and die cut the stitched frame and circle to go behind also in the white cardstock. I stamped the sentiment directly onto the striped overlay using versafine black ink. I then stamped the gingham pattern using versamark and heat embossed in white. Next, I inked the whole background with scattered straw for a soft yellow.

For the ever adorable images, I stamped the bunny and extra balloons and airplane and clouds, colored with copic markers and fussy cut out. I also stamped the congrats onto the center circle. To put the card all together, I glued the stitched circle frame to the overlay and pop dotted the congrats circle and overlay onto the yellow gingham. I added all the adorable images with pop dots and for the final embellishments, I added a few enamel dots.

Smile Gnome Matter What

Hello, Whimsy Friends!  Toni here sharing another card featuring the Gnome Matter What set. I love this set--so cute!

I stamped the Gnome Matter What image using Memento Tuxedo Black and colored him up with Copics.

I created the hillside by sponging Distress Oxide Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron onto the lower portion of the mushroom diecut. I added some water spatters and grass, as well as detail on the flower (using a white pigment pen)

I assembled the scene and then realized I had forgotten to cut the Whimsy Smile from the card front beforehand. I had envisioned a bit of colored peeping out.  Instead I glued the diecut down and left it white on white.  Turned out even better than what was in my head!

If you'd like to see my other creations, you can check out my blog, Frankie Helps Craft, or Instagram.

What a beautiful tree stamp by Jennifer Dove.  If you missed the retreat you missed this in my class.  
I know right!

But never fear!  Here is the color palette so you have the colors, and below I will give you a complete list of all the products so you can re-create this card.  It is so easy and fun.  The ladies at the retreat were so surprised at just how easy Jennifer Dove stamps are to color!  I hate to say it, but I told you so.  heehee.
