Thanks for Clearly Whimsy Stamps

Thursday, August 13, 2015

Before I get started, I wanted to say thank you to everyone who left comments on my last post wishing me better. Unfortunately, I am dealing with chronic pain in my neck and head for the last several months and I'm not sure how things will work out. I've been doing many things to try and combat this but nothing seems to really work. Any way, thank you for your kind words and thoughts. They mean the world to me.

Now onto today's card. It features some fun items from Clearly Whimsy Stamps. I started by stamping lots of various circles from the Circles, Circles, Circles stamp set in several colors. I then die cut the Thanks large word die from the stamped panel and set that aside for a moment. I then die cut the thanks die 3 more times, this time from just white card stock. I then glued all my die cut words together with the stamped portion ending on top.  

I've seen this technique done many times and I wanted to use it. As always friends, I so appreciate you stopping by and spending part of your day with me. I hope you have a fabulous day!


Here's a closer look at the products I used today from Clearly Whimsy Stamps.

Oh gosh, Alanna! I'm so sorry to hear of your pain issues. I truly hope that you are able to get relief soon! That is absolutely no fun. :( Big hugs! I am impressed that you continue to create when you are in pain. The looking down while you work might not be the best thing for the neck. Eeek. But I am glad you are able to get something made, because you create great cards. This card is terrific. I really like all those neat circles. They are so fun and colorful! The thanks looks very, very cool. I've seen that technique, too. You've done it very well! Hope you have a nice weekend! Hugs.
