Lazy Kitty, Whimsy Stamps

Good morning all my crafty friends!!  The card I have to share with you today is a little different than my usual cards.  I saw a card similar to this on Pinterest and when I colored this stamp I knew it would be the perfect design.

This stamp is new to Whimsy Stamps this month.  It's called Lazy Kitty, you can find it HERE.  It comes with a sentiment as well but I didn't have room for it in this layout.


I must have had some ink on the side of my hand, the smudge on him happened when I was assembling the card.  I was so bummed!  But it's more obvious in the pictures than it really is.  I colored the stamp with Copics but I didn't write down all of my combos. 





I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
The Corrosive Challenge- Hip to be Square
Fussy and Fancy- Sprintime Flowers
Die Cut Divas- In the Garden
Sister Act- ATG #103

I am so glad you stopped by to visit my blog today!  I hope you are inspired to find some time to get crafty.

Quickutz Bunny, Quick Creations

Good morning crafty gals!  I have stepped outside of my comfort zone just a bit today to use a die as the focal point of my card instead of a colored image.  I use dies on just about every card I create but I can't remember the last time I used a die as my main element.

Yes I know Easter has passed BUT I did make this card before the holiday and really you could stamp any sentiment there but I was in the Easter spirit.


This bunny is a Quickutz die and he comes together so easily.  I wanted a white bunny but wanted him to still pop out from the white sign so I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Antique Linen around the edges of him and Tea Stain around the sign and all other edges on the card.


To create the scalloped edge I used a 3/4" circle punch and adhered each circle to the back of the stitched circle, overlapping just slightly.  My papers are American Crafts, Dear Lizzy "Daydreamer".
