Hi Mr Gnome

Hi Friends, it's Andrea here wishing you a very happy Sunday.

Today I would like to share a card I made using one of the sweet, wee gnomes available in the Store. This guy is called Gnome Sayin' and comes with that sentiment too!  He is such a cutie!

I like to have a good mix of general greeting cards in my stash and though this guy would be perfect for a note card.  My aim was to try and keep the colours relatively soft (for a change) but also to have lots of texture. I ended up using two different embossing folders, three types of patterned paper, as well as ribbon, string, enamel dots and chipboard!!  I do love how it came out.

You can find details on all the supplies I used on my blog.

Enjoy the rest of your day,

Hugs Ax

Where Ever You Go...

Hi everyone!  It's Brenda with a card I made just for fun!  I'm using the darling image, Space Cadets. that can be found in the What's New section of the Whimsie Doodles shop about half way down the page.

I made the background with a combination of distress reinkers and acrylic paint and shabby white embossing powder.  The cute little cadets and their ship were colored with Copic markers.

I want to remind you about the June Challenge.  This month the theme is Life's A Beach, so anything beach or ocean related will fit the bill!  You have until July 13 to link up for a change to win 5 Whimsie Doodles images.

Thanks for taking a peek!

Watermelon Treat

Hello friends!  kel here to share with you a simple but super fun card!  This is Watermelon Treat from the top of the Summer Fun Digis page.  She is just too cute with her humongous watermelon in hand!! 

I colored her up with my Copics and then fussy-cut her out and popped her up on some 3D dots.  Just loved how this one came out!!

Patricia here this week with my inspiration post. I am using two digital stamps this time. They are called Carrot for you and Carrot wagon and you can find them in the What's new section of the Whimsie Doodles shop. 

I colored the bunnies with Spectrum Noir markers and I fuzzy cut them. I liked the idea of putting the little bunny with the carrot behind the wagon but it look like he was stealing carrots, haha. So better this way. 

I used a patterned paper from DCWV, probably from 6 years ago or so. As you probably know by now I hardly ever use patterned paper, so I have a lot because I bought several stacks when I started crafting. 

I hope you like the card. Remember that we have a challenge going and the new one will start the 15th. For more details about the card, visit my blog.

Have a good rest of the week. 

Hugs, Patricia

Reilly's Shark

Good morning everyone!  Just wanted to share another fun image from the Whimsie Doodles Store.  This guy is called Reilly's Shark and he can be found on the Summer Fun Digi's page.  Here's my card -

I have been having a lot of fun with watercolor lately.   This background seemed to be just the type of place you would find a hungary shark lurking around.  You can find details on my blog.

There's still time to play in the May challenge, graduation/teacher appreciation.  Hope you'll have time to join in.

Thanks for stopping by!

Business Bear

Hello friends! kel here to share with you a birthday card for a huggable guy! This is Business Bear who sits about a third of the way down the What's New digis page. I just love this digi... he looks so huggable, doesn't he??

Love the simplicity of this card... I tend to try and leave masculine cards simple and I think it works really well for these types of cards!!  

Thanks for stopping by today, see you again soon!!

Thank you card


Patricia here to show you the card I made with an image from the last new release. 

I am using the image called Abby in hat.You can find her in the shop. I colored the image with watercolors for a change. I hope you like the result. I think this was the second time I tried watercolors in a stamp, so I still have a lot to learn. 

The background is colored with distress inks and then I used some stitched diets and embossing folder to make the texture.  You can find more details about my card in my blog

Don't forget to participate in this month's challenge. The theme is Teacher appreciation or graduation. 

Hugs, Patricia.
