Lizzy Love....."Jane's Long day at the Office"

Hello everyone! Cindy here today to share a card I made using a Lizzy Love stamp called "Jane's Long day at the Office"
I used Faber-Castell Gelatos to make the background and added vellum over the top to mute the colors a little. I also used the gelatos to color the background behind her. I colored her with my Copic Markers and heat embossed the sentiment.
Hope you like my card!
Have a fabulous weekend!

Wee Hamster

Here’s another stamp I found that has never seen ink.  I have way too much crafty stash that’s for sure.  This is Xmas Hamster by Sylvia Zet for Whimsy Stamps (try saying that fast ha!)


Copic colours used:

Hamster: E21, 00, 000, R20; E79, 77, 74, 70; R46, 35, 24, 14
Bauble: BG75, 72, 70; R46, 35, 24, 14, YR23, Y23, 15, 11

Ugh I thought I had a close up of the colouring but don’t seem to have saved it – sorry.


Products used:

Whimsy Stamps Xmas Hamster stamp
Whimsy Stamps Christmas Tree Die – isn’t this one just sublime with all the swirls?

Bountiful Ceci

Hello Whimsy Fans!  I hope your week has been going well and you're getting in some crafty time.  My kids went back to school last week, so it's been so nice having a quiet house and getting caught up on projects that have been long neglected!

As we move into the Autumn season, I thought Bountiful Ceci would make for a perfect Autumn image.
She's been colored up with copics and colored pencils for the deeper shadows.
Thanks for stopping by today and hope your upcoming weekend is fabulous!

Sounds Of the Sea

Hello Whimsy Friends! have you had a good Summer
so far, the card I am sharing with you lovely peeps today
is all about summer day's. I can remember going to the beach
and trying to find shell's to to put to my ear,

then, now they seem to pass by in seconds.

For my card I have used Sounds Of the Sea By
illustrator Mi Ran,

I have coloured her with Polychromo's,I wanted to
keep the card CAS,so as to focus more on the image.
here is the finished card.

Thank you so much for stopping by.
Have a lovely day Whimsy Friends
Take Care
Kindest regards

Sunflower Buggies

Hi Whimsy Fans, Ellie here today! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hope you're having a wonderful summer! It's almost over so be sure to enjoy the last few weeks of it :-)
Summertime here on the Whimsy blog today too, with this bright sunflower card I recently created. If you are a member of the Whimsy Stamps Facebook fan page, then you might remember seeing it there. 
A pretty simple card to create.
I just did some masking, inking and stamping. The flower was stamped twice, once onto my card front, then onto another white piece of card stock. This time I made coloring easy but simply inking it with my ink applicator tool and distress inks, using 3 different shades. Then I cut the flower out and adhered it onto my card front.  The little white flowers were colored using a white faber castell pitt marker. 
You can find the Whimsy Products here:
Also used:
 Neenah card stock, washi tape for masking, distress inks, stickles glitter, faber castell pitt marker

Enjoy your day and
Happy Stamping!!
