You Are–Cardset | Whimsy Stamps

Happy day! I am here today to share a set of 4 cards that I made. I made all four in about the same amount of time as it would have taken to create one! I used the same technique on each card and just switched up the color for each one as well as the scripted word on each one. The new You Are set from Whimsy stamps was the inspiration for this card style. I just love, love all the lovely scripted words. There is one for each person is your life!

I created the background by using my Copic ABS (airbrush system) as well as a stencil that I made using the new Whimsy honeycomb die. I love my Copic ABS and NEED to remember to use it more often. I love the soft backgrounds that you can create as well as the speed and ease of use! I think you could recreate this look using some blending sponges and ink. You would just have to be careful to hold that stencil down securely!

The color palette of my cards was inspired by the colors of the enamel dots in Whimsy’s Summer breeze set. They are shiny and pretty and I love them!

You can see how I created these cards from start to finish by clicking on the video just below! Enjoy! DISCLAIMER: I am at my most messiest of selves in this video. I made such a mess with the embossing powder!

Floral Waves | Whimsy Stamps February Release

Happy day! I am sitting looking at mounds and mounds of snow at the moment. Will it ever stop? The shovelling action is now a daily if not twice daily event! So, it will come as no surprise that I went for a spring themed card for my latest video! I used a couple of the new February releases from Whimsy stamps as well as some of their dies from past releases. I love, love how they all work together to add layers and depth and interest to my card! The video below will take you from start to finish and share how I created this look!
