Special Guest - Martha Gomez


Hello, Whimsy fans!  Today we welcome Martha Gomez to the blog.

Hello there, I am so excited to be a guest designer this month with Whimsy Stamps. For today, I prepared two cards featuring the Bearing Gifts Stamp Set and the FaDoodle Frames Scalloped Rectangles Dies.
  
 

Bearing Gifts is a clear stamp set that include three cute bears, gifts and perfect sentiments for a party. My first card is a slimline card. I stamped the images onto white cardstock and colored them with Illustrator markers from Spectrum Noir. Then, I fussy cut them with scissors and set them aside.
 
     

I die cut the small size of the FaDoodle Frames Scalloped Rectangles Dies onto white smooth card stock. Additionally, with masking tape I covered the half of each scalloped rectangle and inked the free area with Clear Skies Ink from Simon Hurley.

  

To make the base of the card, I used white cardstock and pasted two different layers of patterned paper to mat my the adorable bears. Additionally, I splattered the rectangles with Shimmer and pasted all the images with crafty foam tape to add more interest.  

  

My second project was more simple. I just used the masking technique to stamp onto white cardstock the bears included in the Bearing Gifts. In addition, I colored them with Illustrator Markers and inked the lower part of the layer.
 
     

On a separate piece of white cardstock, I stamped the gift images and repeated some of the boxes to make them taller. I colored each piece with different colors of alcohol markers. Then, I pasted them over the decorated layer with foam tape. The final touch, a few splatters of metallic ink and the combination of three words as sentiment. 

 See you soon!

Special Guest - Oliver Gleason


Hi, Whimsy friends!  Today we welcome the talented Oliver Gleason back to the blog!


This is what Oliver had to say about this card, "For this card I wanted to keep it winter themed but couldn’t resist some spooky too!"  I think he nailed it, don't you?!  
To create this card, Oliver paired one of the Gossip Holiday Girls with the Build-a-Graveyard Dies and Grave Epitaphs stamp set.


For his background Oliver stamped the Goth Skulls Background and matted it with black cardstock.  He trimmed down a paper from the Blurry Flurries pack, matted it and adhered it on top.


Using the Build-a-Graveyard Dies, Oliver die-cut the gravestones and fence.  He added sentiments to the gravestones with the Grave Epitaphs set.  He stamped the girl from Gossip Holiday Girls and colored her with alcohol markers.


He adhered his elements with foam tape and added a die-cut border at the bottom.  He finished with a sentiment from Gossip Holiday Girls and a scattering of pearls.

Thank you, Oliver, for this fun, inspiring card!  To see more of Oliver's work, be sure to check him out on Instagram.
