Family Forever, Whimsy Stamps

Heeeeellloooo!  I have managed to a create a card to share with you without a colored image!!  Can you believe it?? No markers, no pencils.  Just some embossing powders!  But with a stamp set like this… well, you'll see.



This is a new stamp set from Whimsy Stamps release for February.  It is called Family Forever and can be found in the shop HERE.   
I embossed the tree and sentiment and added some half pearls to the tree.  My papers are MME, Remarkable.

Kraftin Kimmie- Wonderful Wednesday ATG
Fan-tastic Tuesdays- ATG, use some buttons

Bunny Blows Bubbles, Whimsy Stamps

Hey there crafty peeps! Here is a card made with one of the new release stamps from February called Bunny Blows Bubbles.  You can find him in the Whimsy Stamps shop HERE.


After I colored him with my Copics I thought, why didn't I stamp him on kraft and color him with my Prismacolor pencils?? So I will have to use him again!  I used a coat of Glossy Accents on the bubbles, which never photos very well but it looks darling in person of course.  My sentiment is retired from Whimsy.


I added some of the bubbles to the inside of the card too.




Bunny: W7 W5 W3 W1 R22 R12 R00 R000,  Bubbles: N2 BG10 B0000, Graph'it Silver Shake Pen,  Scarf: BG78 BG75 BG72 BG70, stippling: N0 R12 R00 R000

Don't forget to pop over to the Whimsy Stamps blog and enter the current challenge.  The new theme is Add a Sentiment.


I would like to enter this project into the following challenges:
Tip Top Tuesday- Rubber Stamps only
Deep Ocean- Love is all around
Party Time Tuesdays- ATG
Through the Craft Room Door- ATG
Kraftin Kimmie- Wonderful Wednesday, ATG
Pennys Challenge- Spots and Stripes

Leon, Whimsy Stamps

Ok so don't laugh… This is my attempt at a CAS card.  Well, compared to the cards I usually make it kind of is.  I don't know why but I just can't stop adding embellishments and layers.

This stamp is called Leon and it is one of the new releases from this month.  You can find him HERE.


Isn't he darling?! I will definitely create with this one again.  He is colored with Copics and Graph'it markers.




My papers are from two different collections from My Minds Eye.

Quick Creations Valentines Hop

Quick Creations Valentine Hop!!


Ok so if you are hopping in order you should have come from Alexandra's Youtube channel.  I hope you have been enjoying all of the gorgeous projects the team has whipped up for you!  And here is what I came up with....


For my project today I have used a C.C. Designs Roberto Rascals rubber stamp called Valentine, you can find it HERE.  My papers are also from the Quick Creations store.  They are the Santoro Mirabelle 6x6 paper pad, find them HERE. I just wanted to add that these papers are a dream to distress.  They are very high quality and allow for a lot of friction without tearing easily, not to mention gorgeous.  I hated cutting into them, lol. 




So here is what you will need to do: 
- Please comment, Follow and/or subscribe to each blog along the hop including the Quick Creations blog. 
- Please complete the hop by midnight PDT February 4th, 2015. 
- Look for a special discount code somewhere on the hop.
