Holly

I often have a hard time tossing out the labels and like to put quick cards together. They're always colored so nicely too! This is Holly from Whimsy Stamps and she's adorable. I'm in the process of coloring her up on the side but had to put together this quick card.


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

GingerSnaps

I've been waiting to use the Slip 'n Slide Die Set from Whimsy - er, rather, it's been waiting for me patiently sitting on my desk. Well, I finally got around to using it and it's been so much fun. I used the large circle and combined it with the new GingerSnaps! clear stamp. It's been ages since I've created a motion card so I had a few mistakes here and there that needed to be fixed. The biggest one was adding weight to the spinner so it would spin on it's own... in this case I used a dime.


Here are the Copic Markers I used on it:

C3, R13, E04
E42, 43, 23, 27, 57
YG01, 25, 67

Lastly, I colored and used the Wishes Word Chipboard from Make it Crafty.

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

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.

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

Halloweeners

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!

Glory to God

It's a release week at Whimsy Stamps and I've chosen to use Glory to God and paired it with the Stained Glass Tiffany Window.

Mountain Song

I needed some more bookmarks around the house and thought this image would be perfect for the size. So it's a flat bookmark and one layer of cardstock to fit in the book. The image is Mountain Song DoveArt for Whimsy Stamps and is a great scene to color. I wanted a splash of color and thought a red herring would be funny so I colored the bird red. It was a bit too much of the red so I brought in some browns and black.


These are the Copic markers I used:

BG15, 45, 49, 01, B34
W7, 110, E13, 23, R05, 27, 89

Mazarine Butterfly Fairy

Last time I used the label from Mazarine Butterfly Fairy rubber stamp and then I stamped it and was able to color it in my own style. I wanted to follow a card design by CherylQuilts from Splitcoast Stamps which was an inspiration to me. For the back part, I used the Wire Fence Embossing Folder, also from Whimsy Stamps.


These are the Copic Markers I used on here:

Mazarine Butterfly Fairy

I've used the label from Mazarine Butterfly Fairy rubber stamp which was originally colored by Bev. She did such an awesome job and it fit perfectly with the papers I wanted to use. I then stamped a portion of a sentiment from Magical Birthday Wishes and used the Shaker Maker Pennant Flags die set for a shaker element.

Galaxy Galore Background

It's a new release at Whimsy Stamps and I've created a card using the new Galaxy Galore Background along with the Bundled Up stamp in the foreground. There are loads of other inspiration from the Whimsy DT this week.

I started with embossing the background in white then used my sponge to ink on the blue and faded it towards the bottom. For the girl, I colored her with markers first and then used the pencils to create the knitting. I'll be forever grateful to Annabel for enlightening my world with this texture. I love it!


These are the Copic Markers that I used:

W10, E49, 47, 33
E31, 33, 35, 23, 27
