Celebrate Today!

Hi ya everyone!  It's Friday and that means a little Tiddly Ink inspiration to get your weekend started!  Today, I've used the adorable new clear stamp set called Bloom Beautifully.  The adorable flowers and sentiment both come with the sweetie.  The corner embellishments are from Whimsy.  I've colored this image in Copics and I used a paper pen for the small pearl dots around the image.  The lace is from the Ribbon Carousel and the little charm is from a sweet friend.  The paper is Echo Park.

Whimsy Stamps Inspiration Magazine Issue 11


*PREORDER - Issue 11, Jan 2013 - USA Shipping - Click Image to Close
Hi ya everyone!  I'm super excited to announce the the 11th issue of the Whimsy Stamps Magazine is out and guess who's on the cover!?  YAY, it's me.  You have to check out this fantastic magazine for tutorials, inspiration and a lot of birthday themed projects this month.  The team outdid themselves with gorgeous creations.  You can get the print version as well through the Whimsy store

The large card you see uses a number of products from Whimsy that I've listed with links for you.  The paper is absolutely stunning and is a new line of paper from Whimsy called Cottage Garden.
The image is an Elizabeth Belle image called Bella Sole Collecting Daisies.  The new die set called Lace Doily Corner Die 2 was also used for the trim around the image.  The sentiment is from the Party Mini Letter Seals.

The other great thing about this issue is Whimsy teamed-up with Tiddly Inks for some gorgeous inspiration using two of my favorite collections from Tiddly Inks and Whimsy Stamps!  

Whimsy February Challenge

Hi ya everyone!  There is a new challenge on the Whimsy Inspirations Blog today!  The challenge is fancy edges!  I thought this would be a perfect challenge to use my Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities!  These are fabulous for making fun shaped cards.  I have a tutorial right HERE on how to make shaped cards using Spellbinders.  The adorable image is a Wee rubber stamp from Whimsy Stamps called Playful Kittens.  Four cuties come in this set with a number of sentiments.  I paper pieced the heart with my My Mind's Eye Blush paper.  The kitty was colored in my Copic markers.  The fancy edges that you see behind the kitty was made with the NEW Whimsy die cut Lace Doily Corner 2.

Make sure to join us for the Whimsy Challenge - fancy edges this month!  If you haven't gotten a chance to check out the new January release you must!!!  There are so many cute images and new dies.  You can find all of them showcased HERE.

Hello Friend with Elisabeth Bell

Hi ya everyone!  Today I want to share this adorable card I made using the ever-so-sweet Elisabeth Bell image Li'l Montana.  I colored her with my Copics and used an Echo Park paper from the Sweet Day pad.  The sentiment is from Raindrop Echo Designs, A Touch of Elegant Furniture.  My favorite newly discovered item from Whimsy is the lace you see in the background.  I love lace but often hate pulling out my glue gun to adhere it to my creation.  Did you know Whimsy carries a number of awesome lace tapes?  LOVE them and the one I used on this card is called Lace Tape White No. 8.  I hope you enjoyed today's creation and join us for the new release next week!

Spellbinder's Basket with Love

Hi ya everyone!
I shared this adorable little basket I made over on the MarkerPop Blog yesterday and wanted to share it on my blog as well!  This little cutie is from CC Designs and is called Laying Nora.  I love her little wings and she was perfect for this little Spellbinders basket I made using the adorable paper from My Mind's Eye - Playdate.  On the MarkerPop blog I share a link on how to make a basket similar to this using a simple strip of paper!

How are you doing? New challenge at Some Odd Girl

Hi ya everyone!
  The beginning of the month means a new challenge at Some Odd Girl.  This month's sketch is just too cute.
