Stained Glass Village

I'm working on a few mail-able Christmas cards which means I'm trying to keep them flat and not square. The new Stained Glass Village rubber stamp from Whimsy Stamps fit perfectly for this and I was excited to color the sky on this one. For embellishments, I added a few gems then dotted Liquid Pearls all around for falling snow.

These are the Copic Markers I used:

BG10, 01, B00, 12, 14, 04, 41, 32, 21, 52, 91
E50, 51, Y23, 32, 15
C2, 3, 5, T3, 5, 7
YG01, 23, 25, 63
BG93, 96
E44, 25, 47, 57
R29, E07

Winter Pines

It's new release week at Whimsy Stamps and I'm excited that the DoveArt Winter Pines is included in the list. This is such a fun stamp and can be used on it's own but also in the background with other stamps. I've already created two cards with it that I wanted to reshare to give some inspiration for the release.

You might be surprised how this first one was create - very quick!

This one was my favorite and was done with pencil on craft paper.

These and other Whimsy Stamps are available at Little Miss Muffet Stamps.

Christmas Tree

Somewhere I got the idea to make a gold Christmas card and this Christmas Tree stamp seemed to fit the theme. I stamped the background with the Brushed Stripes Background stamp and then built the card up from there. Both of these are fabulous rubber stamps from Whimsy Stamps. The holly leaves were from my stash and I embellished them plus the accessories on the tree with glitter Stickles.

These are the Copic Markers I used on the Christmas Tree:

YR30, 23, 24
YG21, 23, 25, 67
C7, 9, T3, BV23

I used Scattered Straw distressed ink for the background.

The Christmas Tree and other Whimsy Stamps are available at Little Miss Muffet Stamps.

Creepy Clowns

It's Whimsy's 31 Nights of Halloween Blog Celebration and tonight is my night to show you something spooky. Hop on over and see all the other fun projects plus great prizes too!

For my project I used the Creepy Clowns clear rubber stamp and also Dracula's Coffin Die Set, both from Whimsy Stamps, to create this scene. The Creepy Clowns set has all sorts of accessories so I had to use a few of them - the balloons, star, banner and the saying.

When I colored the clown, I had given him larger eyes. He doesn't look as grumpy but then I think that makes him even more creepy. LOL

These are the Copic Markers I used:

BG49, 15, 10
YR18, 23, 12, 31, 30
C1, 3, 5
E42, 44, 53, 51, 50
R89, 27, 05, 02
YG25, 63, 23, 21
T2, 5, 7, 9, BV23

Come join the fun!

Boo!  This is the Halloweeners clear stamp set which I have paired it with the Dracula's Coffin Die Set, both from Whimsy Stamps. I think Halloween projects are always fun to make because it helps break the mold and allows me to think outside the confines of what is expected of a card. With all the rules relaxed, it's one of my favorite holidays to craft for.

These are the Copic Markers I used on both items:

YR30, 23, 24
E50, 53, 42, 43
T1, 2, 3, 4, 5, BV23
YG93, 91, 21

Die sets aren't just for sillouetts or solid colors... 
I punched these out in white and colored them with my markers. 

Come join the fun!
