Bath Dog, Whimsy Stamps

Hiya all you crafty gals!!  I've made a card with the new rubber stamp, Bath Dog, from Whimsy Stamps to share with you.  I have to admit I was more than a little intimidated when I sat down to color this little guy.  Bubbles AND fur too! 

fur: E29 E25 E23 E21 bubbles: BG72 BG11 BG10 V000 BG70 tub: W7 W5 W3 W1 duck: E33 Y38 Y35 Y15 Y13 YR09 YR04 YR02 ball: R59 R29 R27 R17 C3 C1

I stamped on Cryogen card this time and used my Copics, combos above.  My papers are from Pink Paislee, the Hello Sunshine Collection. My sentiment is retired from Whimsy. 





I've added Glossy Accents to his nose and parts of the bubbles and tried to get a pic that would show it.  This is as close as I could get.  You can see a bit of the shimmer in the Cryogen paper too.  Kinda.

Rain, Quick Creations

Good morning crafty folks! I have a card to share with you using an adorable C.C. Designs Pollycraft stamp called Rain.  I was so excited to create with this stamp.  I am loving anything with umbrellas right now.


How cute is that little froggy on her umbrella?? Love him!  I put Glossy Accents on his eyes and her little boots, it just doesn't show well in the photos.  The large umbrella is a MFT die and the smaller ones are a C.C. Designs Cutters die. The clouds are done with the Stitched Cloud die set.  I've combined paper from Lawn Fawn and Carta Bella, links below.

Cheeky Chat, Crafty Free Time



Good morning crafty friends!!  So when I am able to complete all of my DT work for the month I allow myself a little crafty free time. 
I have been a fan of the Cheeky's for a while but I used to prefer digital images.  Now that I craft almost exclusively with rubber stamps I have been working on my Cheeky collection and chose to work with one of them for this free time project.
This one is called Cheeky Chat.

skin: E04 E11 E21 E00 E000 R20 R11 hair: BG09 BG05 BG01 BG000 BG75 BG72 pink: R37 R35 R32 R30 blue: BG09 BG05 BG01 BG000 grey: C5 C3 C1 black: 110 N8 N6 N4

I just love how sassy she is and I thought she needed a hair color to match all that sass.  I've paired her with some papers, brads, and enamel dots by Simple Stories, the I Am collection.   I have the little clips that match but I just can't figure a way to incorporate them without it looking out of place.


I did the brick with an embossing folder and die set by Marion Designs.  The embossed sentiment is a mini stamp set by Heidi Swapp. I've used flowers from WOC and also Kaisercraft.


I would like to enter this card in the Farm Fresh Friday challenge for The Greeting Farm with the theme of embossing. 

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you enjoyed your visit!!

Ice Cream Birgitta, Quick Creations


Good morning crafty friends!! I am SO ready for summertime so I very much enjoyed creating this easel card using Ice Cream Birgitta, a C.C. Designs Swiss Pixie.  I always find these cards a little difficult to photo...


She is colored up with my Copics but I've misplaced my combos for this one.
These papers are Carta Bella, Soak Up the Sun and the strip of washi tape is the Queen & Co. Trendy Tape, Summer Ice Cream- from what I have heard it has been discontinued and Noelle doesn't have many left...  My 'kickstand' on the inside is a strip cut from the papers I used.
I've also used the Stitched Circle Die Set from Whimsy Stamps and the C.C. Designs Dottie Trim Die for the scalloped edges.

Cute as a Button, Whimsy Stamps

Good morning crafty gals!!
