Two days ago I cyber stamped with sweet Heather Jensen. I needed a stamping friend to get started. I have had quite a lot of headaches lately. While my migraine gets better with the new medicine, it makes me tired and I do not fee like stamping. So it’s good to have friends to get you back in the groove. We picked a HYCCT Challenge and both made a card for it!

I just love the new Whimsy Wee Stamps. I had to order some right away. For this sample I used the new Sweet Blossom image. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock and cut with a Label 18 Nestabilities die and the Out of the Box Technique.  The image was colored with Copic Markers (Skin: E000, E00     Hair: Y21, Y23, E31, E33     Headband/shirt: YG11, YG13, YG17     Stockings: E0000, E30, E31     Flowers: Y11, Y15, Y17      Branch: E35, E39, E29    Leaves: YG21, YG23 Bear: E30, E31, E33).

The image was masked, some cloud masks were added and the label was airbrushed with Copic Marker B02. Yellow Stickles was added over the flowers and butterflies.


I chose the colors for this card so it would fit for Lori’s Hope You Can Cling to Challenge. The challenge was to use the colors brown, green and yellow which represent Hope and Comfort. The layout is from this weeks Sketch challenge.

A yellow piece of Rosy MME Lost & Found Two paper was stitched to a slightly bigger piece of  Canyon Brown cardstock, cut and embossed with a Long Scallop Rectangle Nestabilities die. A 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of paper from the same paper pack was stitched to a 3/16″ bigger piece of Canyon Brown cardstock. The scalloped rectangle layer was adhered to the layers.

A  white paper strip was cut and embossed with a Floral Doily Accent die and stitched to a 1 1/4″ x 5 7/16″ strip from yet another patterned paper from that pack. The strip was adhered under the rectangle layers. White Organdy ribbon was tied around the layers and topped with a yellow Basic Grey Button. The image was adhered over the layers with dimensionals.

A Finesse Rhinestone swirl was into pieces and parts were used on the top right and lower left of the image.  A sentiment from Whimsy’s The Good Life Tickets Stamp set. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black ink on a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with a Circle Nestabilities die and airbrushed with copic Marker B02. It was adhered to the left side of the image. Three silver Rhinestones were adhered underneath the sentiment. The layers were adhered to the card base, as 9″ x 5 3/4″ piece of Kraft cardstock, folded in half.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day.
Hugs and smiles
