Good morning crafty friends! There’s a new mini-release from the Whimsy Stamps today, and I have created several cards featuring some of the new items.
If you’ve been following me for a while, you know how much I love to create scene cards. So when I saw the Polka Dot Pals Delia Stamp, I knew that this was going to be a scene card.
To begin my first card, I stamped out the images onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80lb cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored in the images with Copic Markers, then used my Scan and Cut to cut the images out.

Next, I made the sky background, by ink blending an A2 sized Bristol Smooth cardstock panel with Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink and I made the grass panel by die cutting a panel with the Grass and Cloud Edger Die then ink blending with Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink.
To finish this card, I added a couple of clouds, arranged the images with foam adhesive, and stamped out the sentiment.
I colored three candle die-cuts with Copic Markers, added a stripe pattern using a white gel pen, and finished the card with a simple birthday sentiment.
For the last two cards (my favorite, by the way) I used two of the images from the Gnome Birthday Stamp set.
I created the background by simple masking technique using a full sheet label and nesting dies to die cut the shapes. This is a great way to stretch your dies and use them a little differently. I ink blended the rectangle background using Distress Inks in Seedless Preserve, Wilted Violet, Candied Apple, and Wild Honey then added the Brick Pattern Stencil and ink blended the same colors on top.
Using a circle die to create a circle mask over an A2 sized panel, I ink blended Worn Lipstick, Victorian Velvet and Antique Linen Distress Oxide ink. I added white pigment ink on top of the Sun Rays Stencil to finish the background.
For the images, I stamped, colored with Copic Markers and cut them out with my Scan N Cut.

I finished the cards using a few embellishments, added the sentiments, and adhered the images with foam adhesive for dimension. This is as close to a CAS card as I ever get.
