Xmas Hamster - special guest - Kathy Tanner

I am very, very lucky to be Guest Designing for Whimsy Stamps this month :) Yippee!

I was on the Whimsy Design team way back in 2013.  I loved their stamps then and I still do!
They have so many fabulous designs and they are such a quality product too.

I had lots of fun looking through all the stamps and trying to choose a few to play with this month.
It was a difficult decision but I chose a couple of newish ones and a couple of old favourites too.

For my first card I decided to use a stamp that I have wanted for years, Xmas Hamster by Sylvia Zet.

Isn't he adorably cute?!  He was lots of fun to colour too!

I used Copics and made a sky background behind him.
I then used the Envelope Edger Die Set to cut this piece out.

I love the way the sentiment looks on the card too.
It's a combination of the Happy Large Word Die and the 'Christmas' from Everyday Scripted Sentiments.

Copics used :

BG 000, 01, 10, 11, 72
B 0000, 01, 37, 39
R 24, 27, 30, 59
Y 13, 15, 28
BV 0000, 00
E 41, 42, 43, 44, 47, 50
W 00, 1

I think this little guy would make anyone's Christmas happier :)

Thanks for dropping by today :)

Bundled Up with special guest Rachel Alvarado

Hello everyone!  I'm so excited to be guest designing for Whimsy Stamps this month!  For my card today, I'm featuring a stamp set called Bundled Up along with lots of other fun Whimsy products.

I love this cute little stamp set, especially that sweet little bunny that is pictured here looking up at his friend.  I decided to create a double panel shaker card to create depth and dimension to my wintery scene.  I first learned about double shaker panel designs from THIS great tutorial by Jennifer McGuire a few years ago.

To start, I first created my background sky by blending a few Distress Inks (Milled Lavender, Seedless Preserves, and Dusty Concord).  I then spritzed this panel lightly with water and let it dry.  Once completely dry, I heat embossed some wintery-white trees from the Bundled Up Stamp Set on the horizon.  I then masked these off and added some snow by using the Polka Dot Stencil combined with some Snowflake Paste.  I also added a few more "snow" dots with a white gel pen.

For the frame of my card, I used the largest stitched square die from the Shaker Maker Combo Die Set in multiple layers in order to create the depth that I needed to get the multiple layers.  The stitching on this die is just gorgeous and I love the detailed effect that it gives to the outer frame of my card.  For the snowy pine trees, I used some of the trees from the Christmas Scene Builder Rubber Stamp Set and stamped them with green ink.  I then cut them out and added some "snow" to them again using my white gel pen.

For my stitched snow drifts, I used the Stitched Border Dies Trio and placed them a different depths in my shaker card.  To make this a double-panel shaker card, there are actually three layers of acetate on this card with shaker elements (I used Diamond Dust) in between each one.

For my colored images, I stamped them onto smooth white card stock, colored with Copic Sketch Markers and then cut them out.
