~ One of Each, Please! ~

I don't know about you but I can't just choose one donut.  If you're gonna have one, you might as well go all in....LOL  I can't help it...they always look so yummy!  

I loved how Barbara from Forgotten Scraps colored her "Donut" word, so I decided to do my own take on her version.  To make the RV17 look like icing, I added Nuvo Crystal Glaze.  I colored the icing of my chocolate cream filled donut with the color combo Barbara used on her twist donut.  I think it really gives it a realistic look.  You can see her awesome donut card HERE.  

To make my donuts look extra delicious, I added Clear Wink of Stella for some shimmer, Nuvo Crystal Glaze for the icing and Nuvo Crystal Drops in Gloss White for the cream...definitely one of each, please!!!

~ Precious Poppy ~

I just adore this little fairy called Poppy and her sidekick ladybug from Whimsy Stamps.  They are indeed precious!  This stamp would make the perfect birthday, thinking of you, miss you, hello card.  Precious Poppy will bring a smile to anyone's face!

To give her wings some extra shimmer I add Ultra-Fine Crystal Glitter from Stampendous.

~ We Go Together Like Espresso & Donuts ~

Whimsy Stamp's Donut Birthdays Clear Stamp Set, Coffee Break Clear Stamp Set, Coffee Cup Die Set and Espresso-ly Great Clear Stamp Set go together...well, like espresso and  You can mix them to make so many different much so, I made a class out of them.  You can see one HERE and the other one HERE.  Stay tuned, I will showcase another one in a few days.

I added Clear Wink of Stella to the icing for some shimmer and covered it with Nuvo Crystal Glaze to make it look extra yummy!  I created the corrugated coffee sleeve with my Scor-Pal, however, you can easily do this with a paper crimper.

~ Donuts & Sprinkles Always Go Together ~

It's always a celebration when you mix donuts and sprinkles together!  I absolutely love making shaker cards and what's more fun than making one with sprinkles?!  These donuts from Whimsy Stamp's Donut Birthdays stamp set crack me up.  I added Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the pink stripes of the chocolate donut and Crystal Snow White Fine Glitter from Stampendous to the donut twist to give them some extra deliciousness!

When you shake the card, the sprinkles roll into the holes that the Snowfall Panel die makes from Your Next Stamp, which makes the card fun to play with!

 I found these super cute colored sprinkles at Hobby Lobby.  They match the Cream & Sugar paper from Doodlebug Design perfectly.

~ A Liquid Hug ~

How can you not feel hugged after seeing these adorable cups of coffee?!  They are just, too, cute!!!  I wanted this card to resemble a quaint cafe' so I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Woodgrain Backdrop die plate for the table, Whimsy Stamp's Envelope Edgers Die Set for the tablecloths, Darice's Brick Wall Embossing Folder for, well, the brick Lawn Fawn's Stitched Scalloped Border dies for the valance.  I made the sentiment look like a sign hanging on the wall.  I am so happy how this card turned out.  It just makes me smile!

I used Tonic's Nuvo Crystal Drops in Gloss White to give the whipped cream some extra dimension.

~ Starfish Wishes ~

Happy July 4th everyone,

Sharing with you today a quick and easy shaker card.  Seriously, this was quick and super easy to do!  I chose Kraft cardstock because it reminds me of sand and gold embossing powder because it is shiny like the sun.

Card making doesn't need to be timely and complicated to make it fun and special!

~Sensational Sunflower ~

Hello!  This yummy Sunflower is from the new DoveArt's release at Whimsy Stamps.  You don't always have to color a flower or anything else for that matter it's traditional colors.  This Copic color combo is now one of my favorite go to combos.  This has to be one of my favorite cards I have made so just makes me happy looking at it!

You don't have to use the whole image of a stamp either.  I stamped the Sunflower and then cropped the image with my Basic Stitched Oval Die to make it look like the Sunflower is just peeking out.  I love how romantic this card looks!

~ Flower Puff Spotlight ~


It's time for the new release over at Whimsy Stamps.  This new Flower Puff Background stamp has so many possibilities.  I am sure you will see me use this stamp many times in the near future but for my first card using this stamp I decided to mix the monochromatic and the spotlight techniques together.  I think it really makes this stamp pop.

To make the flower in the "spotlight" extra special, I used Wink of Stella in clear to give it some shimmer.  I also used Whimsy Stamp's Wavy Edger Die to give this card a delicate touch.

Copics Used:

R01 R02 R05 R08
C1 C3 C5
