Hello friends! I hope that you had a lovely weekend! Here we are with the last week of May already and Summer is showing itself in many ways right now. I do love seeing the flowers everyone has been sharing posts of with their yards full of blooms coming up everywhere!
Today I have this card using a cute Whimsy Stamps Digital stamp:
This cutie was released this month by CC Designs called “Fleur“. (Be sure to check out May’s Digital Release by CLICKING HERE if you haven’t yet!) Be sure to stop back by on Saturday to check out June’s release too!
I just love the ring of flowers in her hair! I’ve actually printed her out twice so that I could cut a few extra flowers to add to the accents of my design!
For my card, I’ve taken a panel from the Rustic Woods and Brick digital papers and used that for the background of my design. I took a marker and added some dash marks for a stitch look. I added this piece to a 5″ square top folding suede card base which I sponged around the edges with some white ink. I did the same for the die cut fence panels and the circle layer behind the image.
I’ve taken a piece of decorative paper from my stash and sponged some ink around it and also wrapped some ogandy ribbon around it before attaching to the card front base. I then die cut some grass to go over my fence border. My image was cut with a stitched circle die and sponged around the edges with the same ink as the decorative paper. This was layered over top of the suede circle panel and these were popped up with some craft foam. I’ve added the bow and the cut out flowers from the extra printed out image and then I’ve added a flower gem in the center of the bow. Each flower including the ones on the image were filled with some Nuvo Honey Gold Glitter Drops. I stamped a sentiment from the Whimsy Stamps Everyday Mini Sentiments clear stamp set with the same suede color ink.
Here’s a closer look at the coloring on this image. I’ve used the following Copic colors to color her in with: (Click on the underlined numbers to view/purchase from Whimsy Stamps)

Hello friends! I’m here! In case you were seeing nothing on my blog or something weird going on within the last day, I appologize! I was messing with something and pretty much should have left things alone! I think we are all back now and everything is good! Whew! (Don’t worry, I won’t be doing that again!) I guess I thought I was savvy with tech things, but it turns out, I’m not! Ha!
So now that I’ve got things back to normal, I can share my card with you this evening!
This is one of the adorable March digital releases from Whimsy Stamps called Tulip by CC Designs. She was so fun to color and I was thinking about tulips the entire time I was coloring her up! Tulips are my favorite flower and I have a brick foundation with little buds of daffodils and tulips coming up! Of course this makes me excited about Spring and the warm weather we are starting to get!! (Hopefully I will be able to share photos of how they come up soon!)
Whimsy Stamps has also released some really cool digital papers that I’ve used for the background of my card here called Rustic Wood and Brick Collection. (Reminds me of my brick foundation where the flowers are coming up!) I have also used a retired Whimsy Stamps die set called “Garden Flowers” that happened to have a tulip in it, so I cut several in white cardstock to go along the bottom of the card. I also took one and inked it up in the colored I’ve used on my image and tied an additional thread bow at the top of it.
The sentiment on the bottom of the image panel comes from the Whimsy Stamps Everyday Mini Sentiments clear stamp set. I white heat embossed it and then cut out with the Whimsy Stamps Quick Strips die set. I used a MFT stitched scallop die to cut out the image from and layered her with some red cardstock. Before I added the blue ribbon, I attached the piece of black cardstock where my layered image panel would go and wrapped it around the brick background. I then added a white button with a linen thread bow in the center of that. (This is what I used on the colored tulip.) All of these layers were then mounted onto an A2 sized top folding white card base.
Here’s a closer look at her all colored up with Copic markers! You can purchase them at Whimsy Stamps. CLICK HERE These are the colors I’ve used on my image today:
- bow, jacket, skirt, tulips – B97, B95, B93, R39, R37, R35, YG25
