To make my card I used the super cute stamp "Hay, whatzup Buttercup" illustrated by Crissy Armstrong.
I had so much fun coloring this cutie!! Not sure if you can tell, but the head was stamped twice and cut out popping it up with dimensionals. I colored the image using my faber castell polychromos pencils. The sky and the edges of the card front were inked with an ink applicator tool.
Papers: Designer Paper Winter Blues (Whimsy stamps), Neenah white card stock, SU yellow
Embellishments: prima flowers, twine, brads
Coloring Medium: Faber Castell Polychromos pencils

I also have another card to share today. This one was made for the Whimsy Stamps Challenge. The theme this month is "shaped cards". Just make a card in a non-traditional shape and you're good to go. Hope you get to play along for more chances to win Whimsy Prizes. There are two weeks left to play along.
I decided to make a flower pot shaped card using the gorgeous flowers from the new release set " In my Heart" from Whimsy's MoMa's collection. I stamped the flowers twice and colored twice, then cut them out using my cutterbee scissors. The flower pot template was found on google.com. I added a border using Whimsy's double scallop border die (which coordinates with the double scallop doily die I used on the first card). The sentiment on top was stamped onto a half circle, then I created a tag out of it.
As you can see on the photo, the flowers were adhered onto the circle. To finish it off I added some ribbon and another sentiment tied onto the ribbon with some twine. Both sentiments are also part of the same set.
Oh, and just in case you are wondering, I used the direct to paper technique (swipe ink pad over card stock) on the flower pot.
