Oops! Sorry from Whimsy Stamps

I’m so sorry! Sometimes that happens beyond my control but I feel terrible that I caused that. Would you forgive me? Hopefully this card says all of that. I’ve used the accessory stamp from the “Tin Games – Oops! Sorry” set from Whimsy Stamps. Newly released! Then I combined it with a bucket load of other products to get some good use out of my stash. These are basics that I reuse often!

The base of the card was created with the Wonky Window 4 die to create a shaker card. This is a fun die and I was eager to fill in the three different spaces. I was able to use some of the many Sparkletz and Sprinkletz embellishments that I have in my stash. In the top window, I used the Up in the Clouds set and foam dots to create a 3D texture. This is an amazing die and I think a must have. I’m not sure why I didn’t splurge on it before but I’m so glad I did!
The center and lower panels were created into a shaker. In the center panel, I used the grass die from the No-See All Seasons Tree die as a stencil and then on top for dimension. On top of that, I positioned the tipped tulips from the Tin Games – Oops! Sorry set. Then in the lower panel, I stamped and colored the Dainty Daisies Background rubber stamp and place the Big Hugs Word die for the sentiment on top.

Oops! Sorry from Whimsy Stamps

For this project today, I wanted to use one of the accessory stamps from the “Tin Games – Oops! Sorry” set from Whimsy Stamps. This one is the ice cream cone that has fallen over and started to melt. I thought it would be fun to continue the melting theme down through the sentiment and to the bottom of the card. Some days are just this type of day! I cam image this would be a perfect sorry card for a kid… or even a kid at heart.

To frame the set, I used the Get in Line border stamps to create borders around the edges. I didn’t want them orderly and straight so I angled them slightly different each time I stamped them. I chose to keep the card simple and mounted it on a card base. This one is good to go in the mail – nice and flat.

Tin Games – Oops! Sorry

Did you see the tin I bought and was looking for an idea? Here’s what I came up with. I used the new “Tin Games – Oops! Sorry” set from Whimsy Stamps and made a celebration and game all in one. Once the confetti is gone and the party blowers are past annoyance, the game will live on. LOL

The tin already came as a kit with the celebration theme (with the confetti, party blowers and booklet) so I all I added was the game board, two playing pieces and a small die. It fit in there nicely and will be a nice gift.
Here’s a closer look at the game – I colored it using as few colors as possible and saving any of the red and orange colors for player direction. So that includes the house, arrows and circle marks for swapping pieces. Then the rest I tried to color with more neutral colors or at least colors that didn’t overpower the orange and reds. After coloring, I cut it out and glued it to the bottom.

The outside was kept simple. I cut out the shapes of the playing pieces and added a little tag at the bottom. So that way they know the tin also includes something extra! 😉

(Elephant from) Ups & Downs Tin Game

Welcome back!! Or at lease welcome back to me. The school season will be starting so that means summer play is over and I’ll have more time at my crafting desk. Today I’m sharing a simple card I made using one of the elephants from the Tin Games – Ups & Downs from Whimsy Stamps. I also used the sentiment from that stamp so this would be a nice card to send to someone who is having a hard time – because life is full of ups and downs.

I kept the colors simple and monopolizing on the gray tones for a sympathy vibe. Then I added just a little color with the greens and yellow. The card was created using a base layer plus a layer in between – that layer was colored with Copic markers in the same color as the elephant. This makes for a simple card using minimal supplies.

Animal Tiles Across the Pond from Whimsy Stamps

Here’s a take two from a card that I made last week using the Animal Tiles – Across the Pond and Make a Wish Clear Stamps with coordinating dies. Since these were for siblings, I wanted them to be similar yet different. Therefore, I used the same stamps and layout but just changed a few things around especially the colors. I also used paper from the Blurry Flurries 6×6 Paper Pack.

From the Animal Tiles – Across the Pond, I decide to use the frog and lily pad but to color them in non-traditional colors. The last card was oranges and teals so for this one I chose the yellows and blues. I also colored the numbered balloons from Make a Wish Clear Stamps as Mylar balloons and did those in yellow. I don’t think these worked out as well as the oranges one so I’ll have to reconsider my color choices for next time.

Ups & Downs Elephant

I know the 4th of July has passed but this is a card inspired from the 4th of July and so I’m finally able to share it during this release time. This is using one of the elephants from the Tin Games – Ups & Downs from Whimsy Stamps. I’m traveling at the moment so I was planning to skip any 4th of July celebrations this year. However, one of the roads we took just so happened to lead us right to the most spectacular fireworks show that I’ve seen in decades – and we were right under them! It was so amazing! So that evening inspired this card and to figure out how to color fireworks.

I had no idea how I was going to approach coloring fireworks but knew I needed a dark sky. After coloring the elephant and ground, I jumped in with super dark blues and blacks and colored the night time sky. Then I used gel pens and added the fireworks. From the photos I took the night before, I tried to add four different types of fireworks. I liked how it turned out and hope to return to coloring them again.
