Create Your Own Paper Flowers | Whimsy Stamps

Happy day! I hope that you are having a great day and week! It is finally Summer Break for all the boys. It has been a busy year for us all and I am so happy to finally have the summer months in which to relax, spend more time with the kids and just live in the moment. Plus, we have finally found a  way to keep the critters out of our garden so we are actually enjoying the fruits (vegetables) of our labour instead of just feeding the wild-life. Let me know if you want more details!!!

I was finally able to play with the new Peony Flower dies released by Whimsy last month! They are lovely and there are many ways to use them to create beautiful flowers for your cards, scrapbooks and art journals. Here is what I did!

I used cardstock and paper that had a very subtle sheen and then layered up the flower shapes. Some were embossed and that gives a lot of depth and texture to the flowers. You can see exactly how I did it in the video that you will find after the photos!

Love, love how these turned out. I think the paper really shows off just how lovely these leaf and flower shapes are!

Mermazing Card Set | MFT stamps + Video Tutorial

Happy Monday! I hope that you are having a great day and week so far! I have a new card set to share with you today that features some of the new May release from MFT Stamps! This project was so much fun to create! You will find a how-to video after the photos below and in it, I will take you through the coloration process for the images as well as show you how I created the backgrounds!

I am a HUGE fan of the Birdie Brown line from MFT Stamps and when I saw that there was a new Mermaid set, I just was giddy with excitement. I have paired up the Mermazing Set with the new Exquitiste Ocean set and I love how much versatility you get my changing up the different element combinations!

I have listed all the Copic markers that I used for each image below. Although the colors stayed roughly the same for each mermaid, a few change ups and different coloring orders made each mermaid unique!
