~ Kooky Over Whimsy Stamp's New Release ~

I'm baaaack...this time showcasing Whimsy Stamp's new Kooky Monster Clear Stamp Set and the new Moon Background Rubber Stamp.  I cannot tell you how much fun this kooky lil monster was to color.  He may look grumpy but he has a heart full of love!  I knew when I saw the new Moon Background Stamp that I wanted to use Whimsy's Bold ABC Die Set to spell the word "moon" and pop the letters up.  How cool is this dimensional impact?!


I used Whimsy's new Wonky Windows 1 Die to create the shaker.  This die is so fun and makes it so easy to create a shaker out of just one window.  I mixed in some glow in the dark "moon rocks" in with Whimsy's fun shaker bits.  Who wouldn't want to receive not only an interactive card but one that glows in the dark, too?!


Here is a close-up of the letters so you can see how cool this technique is.  To make the letters really stand out, I adhered red letters offset behind the moon background letters.  To create the outer space, I sponged Milled Lavender, Seedless Preserves, Dusty Concord and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks onto a piece of white cardstock and spritzed it with water using the Distress Sprayer to create a background that matched the moon colors and added Sparkletz Crystal Stars for an added fun outer space look.  I really love how this card turned out!

~ Flippin' Over Whimsy Stamp's New Release ~

Welcome to Whimsy Stamp's newest release!  I created this fun interactive shaker card using the  adorable dolphin from the new Whale of a Time Clear Stamp Set and the must have Shaker Maker Combo Die Set.  This die set is so versatile and I use it all the time.  I used the clouds from the Grass and Cloud Edger Die Set to give the ocean waves a dimensional and ocean foam impact.  


I created the ocean using Whimsy's Making Waves Stencil and Nuvo's "Blue Topaz" Glimmer Paste.  This color is incredibly beautiful and is one of my must have Glimmer Paste colors!



I adhered all the dolphins on Mini Action Wobble Springs so they wiggle and wobble when you shake the card.  These springs really add a fun and dimensional element to any card!  These springs are small enough for most images.  As you can see, you can't even see them when looking at the card from the front.  Here is a close-up pic from an angle so you can see how I adhered them to the card.
