Easter Bunny!

Happy Easter everyone! I have another Easter card to share with you today!

This card features a different bunny from Lawn Fawn's "Happy Easter" stamp set as well as some narrator stickers from the Pink Lemonade collection. Before I adhered the bunny and stickers, I misted the background with some Mister Huey's white ink. Misting is so much fun to add to cards!!

I hope that everyone has a good a Happy Easter today! As much fun as it is to find Easter eggs and to get chocolate bunnies, don't forget the real reason for Easter - Jesus' resurrection! He is risen! He is risen indeed!

10 Minute Craft Dash #14

Hello! I hope that your week is going well! I have a card to share with you for the current 10 Minute Craft Dash Challenge! The challenge is to create a card based on these three colors:

I have a hard time with timed challenges (they're so stressful!!) but it helped that Lawn Fawn's "Pink Lemonade" collection had the pink and green colors that I was looking to use in my card! So, here is my finished card:

This took me 8 minutes and 55 seconds to complete. The green background is brighter than the green in the challenge colors, but I think it gives it a nice, cheery feel! The most time consuming parts were cutting out the little hearts and figuring out where to put everything! I like the result though! :)

There is still a few days left to play along with the 10 Minute Craft Dash, so start working on your projects! Enjoy the rest of your week! :)

Lawnscaping Challenge #54

Good evening, everyone! I finally have a card to post today! I enjoy my full-time job, but it really cuts into my craft time. Thankfully I was able to find some time over the weekend to play along with the current Lawnscaping Challenge - stitching!!

I was hoping to pull out my sewing machine to use on my card, but I didn't have that much time! So, I hand stitched! Here is my card:

I stamped the "thanks" onto the card front and then poked holes around the letters. I used some colorful floss to stitch each of the letters. It need something else, so I added some coordinating colored stars around the thanks with some Frosted Lace Stickles. I think I'm stuck on making colorful thank you cards!

There are still a few days left to play along with the Lawnscaping Challenge, so don't forget to try some stitching on your cards! It was intimating at first, but it turned out to be a lot of fun! :)

Let's Celebrate!

Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope that your week is off to a good start. We just got a bunch of snow all day yesterday and last night. This better be the last of the snow! It is so pretty, but I'm tired of the cold weather!

Today is my mother-in-law's birthday, so I wanted to share a fun birthday card to celebrate! 

I took a picture of the card from an angle so that you can see the sparkly candles! This card features Paper Smooches "Hullabaloo" stamp set. I stamped the sentiment first, and then added a line of candles on each side. I colored the candles and flame in with markers and then added Stickles to the candles and glossy accents to the flames. It's so sparkly!

This evening we're going to Outback for dinner and I'm super excited. It will be delicious! I hope that you have a good evening, too! Thanks for stopping by! :)

Colorful Thanks!

Happy Saturday! I have a fun, colorful card to share with you this morning!!

This card features various washi tapes by Recollections, as well as Lawn Fawn's "Quinn's ABCs" stamp set! I made this previous to receiving my "Quinn's ABCs" dies, but the dies will make this card so easy to create! To make this card, I tore small pieces of various colored washi tapes and placed them on the card. Then I stamped and cut out "thanks" to attach onto of the wahi tapes.

This card is also one of the cards featured in my Etsy shop! You should definitely check out the Whimsipost Etsy shop (you can click on the Whimsipost Etsy Shop link at the top of the page to view the available cards!).

I am also submitting this card to the current Moxie Fab World challenge - The Washi Tape Challenge! I am always amazed at the different uses for washi tape!

Well, thanks for stopping by! The weather this weekend is gorgeous, so I am going to take advantage of that and hang out outside for a while! Enjoy your weekend! :)

Hi everyone! I have a card to share with you for the current Retro Sketches Challenge! I have had my eye on this challenge blog for awhile and I have been wanting to participate, so I was very happy to find some time this week to play along! The challenge is to create a card based on this sketch:


This is the card that I created from the sketch!

I'm not sure about you, but I have had enough of this cold, dreary weather and I am ready for spring! So, I thought a sunny card would brighten the day! For this card, I used Lawn Fawn's patterned paper as well as the "Quinn's ABCs" stamp set and coordinating die! The dies are a wonderful companion to have along with the stamp set! No more fussy cutting letters!! I also added some yellowish greenish enamel dots. The other sentiments are from a Hero Arts sentiment stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope that you had a wonderful week! :)
