The prize locations are secret so hop along and enjoy seeing all of the creations made with the new Whimsy products. Winners will be announced on the Whimsy Inspiration Blog on Friday. Good Luck!!

To have a SNEAK PEEK at today's creations using the new Whimsy products, please click on the links below.....
 
Amanda Reed - Guest Designer
Jacque...that's ME!!

And here is my creation for today.....


I have used the darling NEW Rosetta designed by the marvelous Sylvia Zet for Whimsy Stamps and isn't this little girlie fairy the cutest little thing!!!!! She was colored with Copics and Promarkers, adding a touch of Prisma Glitter to her gossamer wings. The base of my card and all double matting is Bazzill and the DP is from the Authentique Grace paper pad. The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts: Trellis Roses, Hip Rosebuds, Carnations, and Aster Daisies. The sentiment, resting on a cut from the NEW Fancy Circle Die, is from the NEW Fairy Fantasy Circle Postmarks, both designed by the amazingly talented Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs for Whimsy Stamps. To finish the front of the card I added some pearls from my stash.


SWEET STUFF!!!

I have an extra little Rosetta who is looking for a new home. If you would like to make her a comfy spot in your craftroom, just add a comment below. This will make you eligible for my SWEET STUFF as well as possibly the Whimsy Stamps prize for the day. She will be traveling with some more goodies to keep her company on her trip to parts unknown...Good Luck!!
 
Thank you so much for dropping by today and I hope you will decide to visit often!! I'm sure you will enjoy seeing all of the creations made with the fabulous NEW Whimsy Stamps products over the next 3 days. So HOP LONG and enjoy!! Big hugs to all!!!

Wild Orchid Challenge with a Tilda Cutie!!!

 
 
A very happy Monday to everyone!! I hope you all had a marvelous weekend and are looking forward to a very exciting and fun week!! It looks like a sunny week here and I can't wait to see more signs of SPRINGTIME!! Several of you have asked so YES, I am using the beginning of spring as a kick-off point for a new ME!!! I am participating in a body improvement challenge at my gym and I intend to win!!! I am ZUMBA-ing every chance I get (last week I managed to get in 10 hours of Zumba--not bad for an OLD woman, huh?)....not eating sugar...and participating in weight training. I may not live to tell about it....hahahha...but I am giving it my ALL!!!
 
Today is the new opportunity over at the Wild Orchid Challenge where we are asking that you use TWINE on your card or project in order to participate for this fortnight. Some lucky participant will receive a wonderful prize from the Wild Orchid Crafts shop so come on over and join in with us this time!!! We would love to see your TWINE-y creations!!!!
 
 
I made an easel card using Bazzill for the base and the double matting, and the DP is from the Authentique Seasons: Spring paper pad. The darling image is a Special Magnolia stamp, Drip Drop Tilda from Crea Duymelot, a wonderful shop in the Netherlands owned by my special friends, Kees and Astrid. Although I have had this cutie for awhile, I had to find just the right DP for her....how did I do?? The image was colored with Copics and Promarkers, adding a bit of Glossy Accents for the rain and boots and a touch of Stardust Stickles for the lace on her dress before cutting her out with SB Petite Ovals. The Banner Pennant Die Set by Whimsy Stamps was used for the banner which was put together with Divine Twine, adding tiny bows made with a fork the same way I use a Bow Easy. To set off the panel behind Tilda, I used a wonderful Flat Back White Pearl String from the Wedding Section at WOC. The floral treatment is made with a 1 1/4" Cottage Rose, Carnations, and Hip Rosebuds, adding Bow Easy bows also made with the Divine Twine and some Decorative Pins. The front was finished with Self Adhesive 5mm Pearls and a touch of Prisma Glitter on the umbrella in the upper corner.
 
For the base panel of the card I used the Whimsy Stamps Umbrella Die with a sentiment from the Whimsy Stamps Singing In The Rain set. To finish the panel I added more 5mm Self Adhesive Pearls to the corners, 3mm Self Adhesive Pearls to the ends of the umbrella ribs, and of course another tiny Divine Twine bow.
 
I hope you will let me know what you think of my little creation and will decide to join in with us at the Wild Orchid Challenge this time! Tomorrow is the beginning of the NEW Release at Whimsy Stamps and I will be back tomorrow with a peek for you AND with a bit of SWEET STUFF....so be sure to drop back by tomorrow!!!! Until the next time, I send BIG HUGS to each of you!!!!

I sponsor my own blog and do not receive things from other companies....these are a love gift from me to show my appreciation to all of you who visit me. These are things I have purchased myself in order to share with all of you and I would love to know that you receive them at least...Thank you!!! Hugs!!

Happy Monday to everyone!!! I hope you all had a marvelous weekend and are prepared for an even better week!! I am thinking Spring has arrived and I am such a happy camper with that news...daffodils are blooming, I have bought pansies, petunias, and marigolds and I am ready to dig in the dirt!!! Nothing makes me happier!!!

 
Today is the first day of the new challenge at Wild Orchid Challenge and the theme this time is PURPLE and GREEN!! I don't use purple often so this was a real challenge for me also but a fun one, I might add!!!! I hope you will all come over and join in with us because you know that there will be a wonderful surprise for some lucky participant....and what could be more wonderful than a surprise from the Wild Orchid Crafts shop!!!!
 
For my card I used Bazzill for the base and for the double matting and the DP is from Maja Design. The darling image is a Bildmalarna which was stamped on X-Press It and colored with Copics and Promarkers, adding a bit of Pearl Pen and Prisma Glitter to the centers of the flowers. ALL of the embellishments are from Wild Orchid Crafts. For the side verticals I used a Scalloped Lace topped with Organza Rose Trim. For the floral treatment I used a Curly Wild Rose, Carnations, Open Roses, Hip Rosebuds, and Heather.
 
Thank you so very much for dropping by and I hope to see you again real soon. Some of you have asked why I haven't been posting as much and I can only say that my motivation and creativity have taken an extended vacation to some faraway place!!
