Blue Christmas

It’s been a while since I used digi papers but when I saw the new ones at Whimsy Stamps it was love at first sight.  SO my colours and style.  Total love!

I made some Hellebores from foamiran – man I love this stuff!  I have tons and tons of mulberry flowers that I really should use but I can’t leave the foamy stuff alone lol.  The silver fringy centre in the small hellebore is cut from the Hellebore Flower die set, and before heating it till it curled I gave the fringing a coat of silver acrylic paint.  I need to experiment more, I think the fringe will be fab for daisy centres too. 
I added some glitter holly leaves and some pearlescent green leaves (out with the old sparkly paint again) and some berries.

I die cut a couple circle frames because I didn’t want to cover up the gorgeous paper with doilies and stuff, this way the paper is all still visible.  A change for me cuz I tend to cover everything up when I get totally carried away. 




Love these icy colours, makes such a lovely change from my very traditional reds, golds and greens.

Snow Man Tidings - Shadow Box Card


I have a little shadow box style card to share with you today using the Snow Man Tidings stamp set.

I stamped and coloured my images before cutting them out with the matching dies and setting aside.

Then I made my pink sky and cloudy background with a stencil and distress ink and glued that to my card base.

I made some snow banks with white cardstock using the borders dies.
I added some glitter to the trees with some Nuvo Glimmer Paste  and then cut several frames from the same deep pink card stock as my base. I glue my elements to the snow banks and the snow banks to some of the frames adding extra frames between to add dimension (if you want to cut less frames or have less weight to the card you can substitute craft foam or foam tape between layers, but I prefer the neatness of using the extra layers of cardstock).

I finished with a frame cut from pink glitter paper and popped the final elements up with foam tape.

I used the following Whimsy products on my card, click on the pictures to take you to the products in store.

Balancing Elf

Hi friends,
The October release at Whimsy Stamps is full of super adorable and fun images. I love this elf who is trying to balance the gift boxes and was an absolute fun to colour.
This card was coloured in almost the same way as I did the previous one. For this card I printed the image on Arches cold press paper and coloured it using my favorite Mijello Mission Gold watercolours.

The colours are very vibarant and look stunning. I used a sharp pair of scissors to fussy cut the image and used some foam tape to stick it on the the watercolored background. I hope you like this cute card using Whimsy Stamps.

Christmas Shaker Tags

Hi Whimsy friends, it's Iris here! Today I want to share a set of Christmas Shaker Tags. This was one of my projects from the class I was teaching at the Whimsy Craft Retreat early October.

To create the tags I used the largest of the Stitched Tag dies and the smallest die from the Handstitched Nested RectanglesInstead of foam tape I cut a tag frame from fun foam and adhered it with score tape. I used the  Oh What Fun clear set and matching Oh What Fun dies to create the stamped elements and sentiments. Coloring was done with Copics.
I also glued some sequins from the filling to the tag background. This way if the tags are standing upright they are not all falling down to the bottom of the tag. There will always be some visible through the shaker window.

Here are the Whimsy Products I used:

Kitten Kindness Coloring Tutorial by Melissa

Hi everyone! Melissa here to share with you a simple coloring tutorial for these sweet kitties from Whimsy Stamps by Lee Holland called Kitten Kindness.  I wanted to show you a few coloring techniques for coloring fur.  Three to be exact; tiger stripes, calico and textured fur.  Any of these can be used on other animals too.  A number of these techniques you might already know, but I do give you a few hints how to have the best outcome.

You will need a few coloring tools.  If you are an alcohol marker user, pick two to three colors of the same color family for each technique as well as some alcohol such as Colorless Blender from Copic.  If you use colored pencils I would pick two to three colors for each technique as well and gamsol or some other blender solution.

I did want to include a list of colors used for the fur:
Gray/Blacks:  C00, C1, C3, C5, C7, 100
Browns:  E70, E71, E74
Orange:  YR12, YR15, YR18

In the beginning of the video I show you how I use acetate to place my rubber stamps.  Often it's hard to see the correct position.  I did not include that after having the correct placement on the acetate to go ahead and stamp on the paper.  Then I do the sentiment the same.

Please make sure to like the video and follow my YouTube channel as I'll be doing more Whimsy Stamp tutorials in the future.

Faux Chipboard and Christmas Sparkle

Hi Everyone! 
I am pleased to be back with another Whimsy inspiration post and video for you.  This week I am using an October release die alongside the snowflake set we used last month over on my blog Hedgehog Hollow!

Let's look at today's project...
I love this two-part die that adds snow capping to the letters. I also really like this technique to create extra dimension to your cards, I created my own chipboard effect letters!  The red embossing adds a great pop and so much sparkle form the WOW! embossing powder! Let's look at the tutorial...

I love making multiple cards with the same supplies and showing you new ways to mix it up too!

Happy Stamping!

Monthly Inspiration from Alanna -- 3 cards with Abstract Christmas

Hi friends. I have three cards to share with you today, all using the super fun Abstract Christmas stamp set from Whimsy Stamps that was recently released.

For my first card, I created my background using some various colors of Distress Inks that I smooshed into some water color card stock.  I then stamped and heat embossed the Christmas tree and the sentiment with some silver embossing powder.

For my second card, I did the same thing except this time with some various blue inks with some gold embossing powder. I also rubbed my Versamark ink pad down the edge of a white piece of card stock and then coated it with the same gold embossing powder.

For my last card, I thought it would be fun to heat emboss the image onto some black card stock. I then took some metallic water colors and added just a touch to some of the circles in the tree. I also added heat embossing to the edges of my panel like I did in the card above.

I hope you've enjoyed these cards today. Thanks for dropping by. Crafty hugs!
