Whimise Doodles Guest Artist

Good morning and Happy Monday my crafty friends!

Back in the fall I won a Whimsie Doodles challenge, and was asked to guest for the month of February, using their ever famous adorable images.  Of course, I jumped at the chance and said YES!

So today I'm sharing two very different projects that I created using some of their new images that are currently in their store.

First up, I made this card using their new digi image, Dressy Girl.  She is just perfect for just about any occasion, IMHO.

This little cutie was brought to life with my Copics.  I used some new designer papers from the American Crafts/My Girl collection which just screams spring and girly-love as well as cardstock from DCWV!  The sentiment comes from the Taylored Expressions Many Minis - Occasions sentiment stamp set.  I used a Recollections flower and then made a rolled flower using some of the scraps from the paper pad and stuck it inside as center.  I then centered all of that with a self-adhesive Recollection pearl and then added some more in various sizes in the corners.

My next project features a new digi image called Present Jayson.  I decided to make a tag instead of a card - maybe for one of the men in my family when it's gift giving time.

I colored Jayson in Copics.  I started things off by making a tag and a star out of some Paper Studio Kraft cardstock with my Cricut Expresssion.  I then distressed all my hand-torn dp's (excuse me but I don't remember who the dp is by!!!) and cardstock with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  I even distressed the flax Twinery twine in it as well.  I then stamped the star with a sentiment from the Penny Black Mimi in Paris stamp set.  I also stamped the tag with a background stamp from an old Creative Memories stamp set.  A button and some ribbon in my stash pulled it all together.

Thanks for stopping by today and taking a peek!!  Hope you all have a fabulous day!
