Thank my Lucky Stars for Whimsy Stamps

Wednesday, September 13, 2017

Welcome friends - I'm so glad you stopped by today. I have a fun card to share with you today using stamps and dies from Whimsy Stamps along with some Color Burst powders.

I first started by working on the colored portion of the background. To achieve this effect, I spritzed my water color card stock with water and then added the powders on. When these powders come into contact with water, they move on their own and you get a really cool effect. I was going for somewhat of a rainbow look here. I absolutely love how this panel turned out.

After it was dry, I stamped the stars on the background with the Basic Christmas Backgrounds stamp set from Whimsy Stamps. I then one of the dies from the Hand Stitched Borders die collection and ran that through my Big Shot on all 4 sides to add the stitching detail.

I then die cut the tag using the smaller tag from the Stitched Tags die set. The sentiment is from the Shine Bright stamp set. I added it to my card with some foam tape and then finished off the card by adding some of the Summer Breeze enamel dots from Whimsy.

And there you have it. Thanks again for dropping by today. Crafty hugs!

Wow, does that background look fantastic! Looks like the powders you used are a lot of fun! It reminds me a bit of aurora borealis (sp?). I like the stars over top, too. Fun tag and sentiment. A beauty! :) Hugs!

That is such an amazing background. I admit to being a little bit scared of these powders. I can't cope too well with the powder floating around! It does give a lovely result though. I also have to say your new profile picture is gorgeous. Nice and smiley! xx
