Amelie to the Beach

Hi, everybody! Suzanne here with my last post on the Whimsy and Stars Studio blog for the Spring 2014 term! I chose "Amelie to the Beach" for today's card! I don't know if I'll get in any beach time this summer, but I hope that I do! 

A couple of notes about my card:
  • To give the sand some texture, I added some Distress Stickles in Antique Linen after I colored. It gives a bit of texture without being super shiny like glitter would be. It's actually my go-to product for images that include sand!
  • I matched the wood button to the colors in my card by covering it with matching washi tape and then poked holes through the tape so I could thread it with twine. 

Don't forget, "Amelie to the Beach" and ALL of the Whimsy and Stars Studio digi stamps are available for instant download in the etsy store!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! See you here tomorrow as the Whimsy and Stars Studio Design Team presents its final DT Showcase of this term! We're all sharing cards and projects with some of our favorite Whimsy and Stars Studio images! Don't miss it!

End of School Gift with Back to School image

Hi everyone, it's Kathy here today! Here on the East Coast our school year is wrapping up. My littles go until Friday and the bigs go until next Thursday. That means I need teacher gifts! This Back to School image has always been one of my favorite Whimsy and Stars images. I've paired him up with an apple shaped box. I will fill it with some chocolate and a gift card for one of the teachers, probably Finn's preschool teacher. The apple was cut on my Silhouette Cameo.

Here is a side view:

And here is a close up of this little cutie! All of Mabelle's Whimsy and Stars images are available for instant download in her etsy shop now, so no waiting for an image to be sent after you purchase it. 

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you are having a great week! Please come back on Thursday for our final DT showcase for the spring term. You are going to be in for a big treat, there are some gorgeous cards!

Life is simple. Eat. Sleep. Swim.

Hi friends, it's Michele here today with a super sweet and fun image from Whimsy and Stars Studio - Floaty Girly. I LOVE HER FLOATY RING and I want one just as cute...maybe in a larger size though. :D

I made a super CAS card let Floaty Girly shine. Some bright and bold Doodlebug paper, a banner flag, some doodling and that's it! I coated Floaty Girly's ring with a thick coating of glossy accents. She's ready for a day at the pool...after she eats and sleeps...oh the life!

Thanks for popping in; hope you have a GREAT week!
