Etsy Shop is Now Open

Sure enough; my Etsy shop is now open and even has a few products for sale! I hope to be adding more very soon - go ahead, hop on over and take a look: Whimsey Cards.

Here are some recent cards I created - this first set is a package of 4 note cards - all about "express yourself" from Verve Visual. I embossed the shoe and purse two times each using BG's Lemonade DP; the polka dot style paper is from the same DP.

Each shoe and purse was hand cut and layered onto a white circle and pink scalloped circle made with nestability dies. I so love my nestability dies! And seriously - is that shoe and that purse not the most adorable image evah?? Both the shoe and purse were stamped in black and embossed with black detail embossing powder.

All 4 post cards sell together wrapped in a pretty pink bow. Such a fun set - and each sentiment per post card is different, they say: "In shoes, I'm a perfect size 6", "express yourself", "you've got style", and "Who needs therapy when you have shoes?" - aren't those just the cutest sentiments?

My next card uses a stamp set I absolutely adore - On My Couch & On My Couch Additions by Lisa Johnson for Papertreyink. Two super fun sets and I had a blast making this card. I made my own background paper using 3 sentiments from the set as well as a pillow.

Seriously, is that couch not just the most adorable thing? Makes you want to sink in and rest for a bit! I've been sick this week, so I'm ready to 'hit the couch' myself!

I used VersaMagic Dew Drops for the blue in this card - I didn't have any blue cardstock to match, so I made my own background paper by stamping 3 sentiments randomly - ""Let's Chat!", "need a couch day", and "Time to relax!"; the I stamped the small pillow in brown throughout the background paper.

The inside of the card says "time to relax!". The couch and rug are certainly the focal point of this card; everything else is very simple. I did create some embossed lines around the main image - adds a nice little touch.

Tough to tell from the picture, but the colors are Dark Chocolate, White and accents of the beautiful blue.

Thanks for looking; I hope you have a great weekend! Hugs, ~M.
