Clean & Simple Stamping: FTL288

As soon as I saw this fortnight's Clean & Simple Sketch FTL288 I knew that I just had to join in and use my Feeling Fruity Additions Apple 3x4 photopolymer stamp set from Clearly Whimsy Stamps!


Supplies
Clearly Whimsy Stamps: Feeling Fruity Additions - Apple 3x4 stamp set
Memento ink: Love Letter, Olive Grove, Rich Cocoa
Copic marker: YR31
Bazzill cardstock: Grenadine
Doodlebug Kraft in Color: Kraft 6x6 paper pad
Versamark ink, White Embossing Powder

It did take a little bit of time and care to get the stamping just right for this card.  I started off by drawing a pencil grid on a piece of white card.  I then stamped all of the outlines of the apples using the largest stamp in the Feeling Fruity Additions stamp set in Memento Love Letter ink.  Once that was done, I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to help me stamp the polka dot shape inside each alternative apple, again in Love Letter ink.  I then stamped the little pips in the middle of the remaining apples in Rich Cocoa and coloured them with my YR31 Copic marker.  Finally I stamped the little stalk and leaf with Olive Grove.  Once I was happy with my stamping, I trimmed the panel, matted it onto red card, and popped it up with foam pads onto a card base covered with patterned paper. Finally a  sentiment from the same stamp set (stamped in versamark and heat embossed in white) to finish!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Tang-tastic!

Happy Thursday everyone!

I have a quick card to share today using some of my new Clearly Whimsy Stamps products. The orange slices were made using the Fruit Trio die set and the sentiments are from the Sweet As Candy - Sweet Sentiments 4x6 clear photopolymer stamp set.


Supplies
Whimsy Stamps Fruit Trio die set
Whimys Stamps Sweet As Candy Sweet Sentiments stamp set
Cardstock: SU Bermuda Bay, Core'dinations Tangerine (CO030), White
Doodlebug 6x6 paper pads: Kraft in Color - Kraft (turquoise gingham),

Kraft in Color - Color (orange polka dot)
Memento Ink: Tuxedo Black & Tangelo
Orange/White Baker's Twine

For my layout, I followed this week's Mojo Monday sketch #340.  I was also very inspired by this week's ColorQ Challenge colour palette - love it!  The only SU colour I have is Bermuda Bay (which I used for the bottom layer), but I tried to pick colours that were very similar for the rest of the card:

Sweet as candy!

Happy Saturday everyone!

Now that Whimsy Stamps have a new line of clear photopolymer stamps, I thought I'd play along with a few CAS challenges.


SUPPLIES


I'd like to enter this card into this week's colour challenge #166 at Less Is More, which is A Touch of Turquoise.  And for my layout, I followed the current CAS(E) this Sketch #71:


I had a couple of inky "accidents" when making this card (i.e. I *thought* I had clean fingers, but it turned out that I had a bit of ink on them which then transferred to the card *sigh*).  All I can say is "thank goodness for sequins", lol! A few placed strategically over the smudges and the card was rescued - yay!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Whimsy Stamps March Release - Sneak Peek Day 2

Hi everyone!

It's rubber & die release week at Whimsy Stamps! We are releasing a fabulous selection of new rubber stamps, clear stamps, shapeology dies and papers this month. Today some of the Whimsy DT are holding a blog hop to share sneak peeks of some of the brand new Sentiment Sets and Shapeology Dies, and I am part of today's hop! The entire new release will be available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store TOMORROW!

We have hidden FOUR prizes of 2 new release rubber stamps somewhere on the DT’s blogs throughout the 5-day release event. As the location of the prizes are secret, be sure to leave a comment on ALL the stops on each daily blog hop to maximize your chance of winning!

The mail service (both in the US and in the UK) are in my bad books at the moment! My DT parcels are taking FOREVER to cross the pond, and when they do arrive they are being slapped with customs charges, which is adding to the delay. I don't have my March rubber & die release DT goodies yet, but I *finally* got my March clear stamp release on Saturday after weeks and weeks of waiting! Although Whimsy released these stamps last week, we are still adding them to this month's regular release, and so I have finally been able to make something with them - yay!

I used both of the 6x4" clear Sweet As Candy sets for my card:



Don’t forget to stop by the Whimsy blog tomorrow for our release day blog hop when we will be revealing the entire release!

Thanks so much for popping by today. Happy hopping!
