Whimsie Doodles August Release

It's NEW RELEASE DAY at Whimsie Doodles! Woo Hoo! There is a new set of adorable images called 'Punny Enough'.
Check it out... here  There are also new Whimsiecut files!

Be sure to stop by all of the other Doodlelicious Divas' blogs today to see the awesome creations they have made using the newest Whimsie Doodles images.

Also......Please join me in welcoming a familiar face back to our team as our Guest Designer for the month of August, Kelli Caslow! Glad to have you with us this month, Kelli!

Here is a card I created with one of the new August images...'Keepin' it REEL'  I just love the box of popcorn with the movie reel and film!

I created this card by first printing the image on PaperTrey Ink white cardstock and coloring it with Copic markers. Then I cut the image out and applied Liquid Applique to the popcorn areas. While the Liquid Applique was drying (overnight for best results) I created the background of my card. I used K&Co. stack designer paper called 'Cut and Paste'. I cut the paper apart so I could use various elements. The small filmstrip at the top of the card is by Tim Holtz. I used red Stickles on the large 'popcorn' words and attached the star brads. The following morning I applied heat to the Liquid Applique by using a heat gun. The heat caused the Liquid Applique to puff. When the popcorn had cooled I added the yellow coloring with Copic markers. I adhered the Whimsie Doodles image to the front of the card. I added a bit of grey Copic marker around the bottom of the popcorn box and movie reel to create dimension. The sentiment is computer generated. As you can see, this card was a bit of work but I love the results!

Your card is just over the top with amazing detail. So much work clearly went into making's incredible. I have to agree with a poster above me, the popcorn looks real enough to eat.

Linda I just found your blog----love seeing your work...I used to see you (and your layouts) at the M'boro Sassy but I moved away a couple of years ago. Good to "see" you here and I LOVE the card! I am a huge fan of popcorn (no, really I eat it every nite!! LOL!) so I adore this card and your creativity with puffing the texture of the popcorn is fantastic!
