Hey crafty friends! I’m super excited to be participating in Shimmerz Paints and Whimsy Stamps Instagram Hop filled with awesome inspiration and prizes. To enter the giveaway, you must follow the link to IG and complete the steps for entry.

Shimmerz Paints carries several product lines from sprays, paints, and texture pastes. For my card, I began by trimming a piece of watercolor cardstock with the Whimsy Stamps Slimline Cardbuilder Die. Next, I spritzed the Coloringz sprays in Heidi Ho Blue, Vivacious Violet, and In Deep. Once the panel dried, I added more of the Heidi Ho Blue Coloringz by taking a paintbrush and brushing the pigmented paint across the panel.

While the panel dries, I stamped the images from the Tweetie Pie Stamp onto a piece of solar white 80lb. cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored the images with Copic Markers.

Once the coloring was complete, I used my ScanNCut to cut the images out, then set them aside to work on the background panel.

After the panel was completely dry, I arranged the images and adhered them to the background with foam adhesive. Finally, to complete this card, I stamped out the sentiment onto a piece of pink cardstock, embossed it, and trimmed it down using the double fishtail banner die from the Quick Strips Die Set.

Collected Crafty Collabs November Hop | Whimsy Stamps Holly Jolly My Butt

Santa Clause

 

Hi crafty friends, it’s that wonderful time of the month where a group of crafty friends comes together to share projects made using crafty supplies we’ve squirreled away. Yes, it’s the Collected Crafty Collabs hop for November. And this month we are making Christmas inspired card with optional texture pastes or mousse.

For my card, I chose a grumpy Santa with an appropriate sentiment to reflect his mood. For some of us, as we get closer and closer to Christmas, we begin to feel like this guy.

I stamped the images onto Neenah Solar white 80lb. cardstock with Memento ink and used my Copic Markers to color in the images.

Tree: G28, YG17, YG03, YG01

I ink blended a panel of smooth cardstock with Distress Oxide ink in Blueprint Sketch, spritzed the panel with water, and added splatters. Once the panel was dry, I used the Twinkle Stencil and Therm O’ Web’s Glitz Glitter Gel to add a ton of sparkle to the background.

I adhered the tree directly to the background, added foam adhesive to the focal point image, and die cut the sentiment from red and white cardstock then adhered it with foam adhesive to the card.

It may not be the jolliest Christmas card, but undoubtedly it will come in handy this year!

Here in Florida, the weather is still in the high 70’s but these adorable guys are enjoying much more cold weather in this winter scene card.

I started the card by creating the background first. Using Peacock Feathers, Broken China, and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxides, I ink blended a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock. Next, I spritzed the panel with water and blotted it dry, then I created splatters of diluted white acrylic paint and Peacock Feathers.

Once the coloring was complete, I used my ScanNCut to cut the images out. To complete the scene, I die cut several trees from the Forest Majesty Die Set, and a snowy hill from the Kinetic Straight Waves Die Set.

I adhered all of the elements to a side folding A2 sized card base, adhered the images with foam squares, and finished the card with a heat embossed sentiment.

Whimsy Stamps Snowy Water Mill | Ink Blending Backgrounds

Snowy Water Mill

Good morning crafty friends, I have a very serene card to share with you today featuring the newly released Snowy Water Mill Rubber Cling Stamp by Whimsy Stamps.

This is a gorgeous rubber stamp designed by DoveArt Studios for Whimsy Stamps. I happen to be a huge fan of scenery stamps and all of the ones designed by DoveArt are just beyond stunning.

I began the card by ink blending a panel of Bristol smooth cardstock in Tumbled Glass, Shaded Lilac, and Spun Sugar Distress Oxide inks.

Once the panel was completely dry, I stamped the image using VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with black embossing powder.

Using a stitched rectangle die, I die cut the panel down to 3 ½” by 4 ¾”. I added foam tape to the back of the panel for dimension before adhering it onto a piece of black cardstock. I opted not to add a sentiment on the card but I can easily add the sentiment for any occasion.

A simple ink blended panel, embossing powder, and your card is all done. I hope you enjoy seeing something a little different as always thank you so much for stopping by until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

Using Pattern Paper on Cards | Whimsy Stamps Magical Winter

snowman

 

Hey crafty friends! It is beginning to look like Christmas. Today’s card is a fun Christmas inspired card featuring pattern paper.

My most favorite color combination for Christmas cards is the teal and red combo. When I saw these pattern papers from the newly released Blurry Flurries Paper Pack, I knew that the paper would be perfect to create this easy card.

Looking through the collection, this teal pattern paper that fades into white caught my eye. It was a perfect background for this little snowman from the Magical Winter Clear Stamp.

The Snowman image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80lb. cardstock and colored with Copic Markers.

I die-cut a frame from red cardstock, and finished the card by white heat embossing the sentiment onto red cardstock.

Undoubtedly, this is an easy card to create because the pattern paper creates the background. Adding a frame element and an image completes this card in a flash.

I hope you enjoyed this card, as always thank you so much for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

Whimsy Stamps Candy Corn Dress Up | 31 Nights of Halloween

Whimsy Stamps Candy Corn Dress Up

Hi crafty friends! Are you enjoying the month-long inspiration of Halloween and prizes? It’s Donna from the Whimsy Stamps Video Team, and I am sharing a cutesy Halloween card featuring the Candy Corn Dress Up stamp set.

I started by stamping out all of the images onto solar white cardstock with Copic friendly ink and colored them in with Copic Markers. Then I used my ScanNCut to cut the images out.

Copic Markers: E35, YR07, YR04, YR12, E34, Y15, Y08, Y00, B17, B13, B04, B02, YG17, YG03, N7, N5, N3, N1, N0, C3, C1, C00

Whimsy Stamps Candy Corn Dress Up

For the background, I trimmed a piece of smooth cardstock down to 8.50” by 3.50” and ink blended the background using Distress Ink in Seedless Preserve, Picked Raspberry, and Dried Marigold.

I blended a small panel of smooth cardstock with Distress inks in Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn for the grass. I die cut the panel with the grass die from the Grass and Cloud Edger Dies.

Next, I added water splatters and white diluted paint across both of the panels and set those aside to dry.

While the panels were drying, I die cut several trees from the Forest Majesty Die Set and added Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo to ink them.

At this point, I had all of the elements, and it was time to start assembling the card. I added the background panel using liquid adhesive to a slimline card base. I used foam tape to add dimension to the grass border and added in all of the images.

To complete this card, I trimmed a piece of black cardstock, stamped the sentiment from the stamp set, popped it up on foam adhesive on the card front, and finally, added the clouds from the Happy Sky stamp set.

I hope you are enjoying the 31 Nights of Halloween and are inspired by all of the projects so far, don’t forget to enter the grand prize giveaway on the Whimsy Stamps Blog!

Whimsy Stamps Dragon Christmas Cheer | Copic Coloring One-layer Scene Card

Whimsy Stamps Dragon Christmas Cheer

Hey crafty friends! The Whimsy Stamps release is live now! I am excited to share with you a one-layer card featuring the newly released Dragon Christmas Cheer clear stamp set.

One of my favorite techniques is to create a one-layer scene card, either by stamping or hand-drawing some of the elements on a card.

I created a funny winter scene with the sweet but clumsy dragon all tangled up in Christmas lights.

 

Whimsy Stamps Dragon Christmas Cheer

 

I began by stamping out the image using Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80lb. cardstock. Using a pencil, I lightly drew out the door, window, step, and snowbank.

Before beginning to color using Copic markers, I did erase the pencil marks because once the alcohol marker is added, the pencil line will not erase.
