Happy Birthday Penguin Is The Cutest! Whimsy Stamps
April 15, 20210 Comments

I am having the best time as a Guest Designer with Whimsy Stamps.  This stamp was a must have because...well just look at that cutie!  This Penguin Birthday Rubber Stamp Set is adorable and so fun to play with.  I stamped and colored him with Ohuhu Brush Tip Alcohol Markers.  They are a fantastic marker set as you can see with all of the depth and dimension.  

For the video I did over on my channel, I go over 6 tips for stepping up your card design.  We talk about changing up the look of you card base, or mismatching your sentiments.  Check out the video for more tips.

Let's Coffee!  Whimsey Stamps Guest Design Apr 2021
April 08, 20210 Comments


I cannot get enough of these stamps from Whimsey Stamps.  The Coffee Break Stamp Set has to be one of my favorite.  I am a HUGE fan of coffee-themed cards so this fills all the boxes for me.  The background stamp is the Burst Background Stamp and I had a lot of fun with that one too. 

I first used a rainbow of inks to stamp the Burst Background and then went back to it with clear sticky ink to add some sparkly clear embossing powder for a raised look.  I love the way that came out although you can't see it much in the picture.  
Lastly, I took these awesome coffee cups from the stamp set and colored them up with some alcohol markers to add a bit of shading and pizzazz!  The Coffee Break Set is a staple must have with all of the super fun sentiments.  LOVE IT!  Here is a closer look at the sparkle if you can see it.
