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!

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. I thought it would make a great stained glass scene and to also show the window is perfect for some characters too. Come check out the other new releases on the Whimsy Stamps Blog.

These are the Copic Markers that I used:

YR18, 16, 04, 21, Y21, 11

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
YG21, 25, E13, 23, 44

E44, 47
YG 63, 67, 25, E23, 13
C1, 3, 5
YG91, 93, 97, 99, 63, 61

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:

R02, 05, 46, 59

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
W5, 7, 9, C3, 5

Birthday Memories - Girl

I've used the Birthday Memories designer series papers from Stampin' Up! to create this project and followed another great card design by Stamps to Die For.  I also used some Make it Crafty chipboard embellishments for the sentiment and border around the image; which has some yellow Liquid Pearls.  So far this is the only girl project that I've created.  I think she's a bit small but maybe I'll be able to come up with another one that I like.

Faye the Fairy

Remember the last project I did trying out a new technique by Sue?  After getting some tips from Sue, I used a glossy paper and tried it again. It made a world of difference and the colors are so much more vibrant. It was easy too and now my girls have been having fun creating their own papers. :D  For this project I used Faye the Fairy as well as the Magical Birthday Wishes Sentiment stamps, both from Whimsy Stamps.

These are the Copic Markers I used on Faye the Fairy

Fireworks Stencil

For my project today, I decided to try a technique from Sue. I wasn't sure what paper to use and didn't have what she suggested so I just grabbed what paper I had. However, the paper absorbed the ink refills too quickly. But I'm not one to waste so I made a card with it anyway and used the Fireworks Stencil (from Whimsy Stamps) to add some texture.

Polka Dot Pals Joshua

There's a fun new release at Little Miss Muffet Stamps and you can see more inspiration on the LMMS Challenge blog.  For my project I've merged a scene using the Polka Dot Pals Joshua series release which includes all the following digital stamps:

I used my Prismacolor Pencils and colored on a taupe or krafty color. I actually don't know what color it is but I thought it would work well with a desert theme. Then I colored the sky mostly blues and greys so I'm glad I had a little bit of the taupe color showing.

Circles, Circles, Circles

I've created a quick project using Circles, Circles, Circles and Magical Birthday Wishes Sentiment stamps from Whimsy Stamps. The colors I used were just Memento ink pads so there was no color necessary and that's what made it a quick project. Lastly I added some embellishments and for a final touch I used one of the Pierced Border Trio Die, also from Whimsy Stamps, and added a little blue border.

Cherry Blossom Background

One of the new releases at Whimsy Stamps this week is this Cherry Blossom Background stamps. It's a large size so it'll fit the 6x6 cards too. However, I've stamped and trimmed it down to a standard envelop size so I can mail it. I've also used the Stained Glass Scripture Sentiments from Whimsy Stamps

When I put the card together, I used some white gesso paint and sponged around the edges to soften them up. Then I layered it with two layers of thin foam; in between those layers is a clear sheet that I stamped the sentiment on.

These are the Copic Markers I used on Cherry Blossom Background:

E35, 37, BG01
R20, 32, RV14
