HAPPY B-DAY WHIMSY!!!!

Hello friends of Whimsy Stamps, today is my turn of publication and with great joy I show you how I colored the sweetest   Penguin Flies - Digital Stamp on the birthday WHIMSY !!! As you may have noticed on IG the BLOG HOP is underway on the occasion of the 10th anniversary Whimsy .... what a thrill !! I leave you the link to participate in the BLOG HOP (you have time still until noon ET Monday 12/17 when we will randomly select 2 winners and each receive $ 25)


But now I show you my card and its coloring!

I used the Nuvo Marker, I started with the paws, the cheeks ( 387 - 373 - 374) and the little body ( BLACK)


With the white gel pen I draw the light points


Now I'm going to the balloons (I also create the transparency of orange also the part that should be seen from the green balloon) 
GREEN: 410 - 412 - 416
ORANGE: 373 - 392 - 377




Also on the balloons I draw the light with the white gel pen! With the blue those the contour of the penguin and then all the sky, revising with the color on the parts that I want in the shade


After coloring the whole sky with blue, I create colored confetti with the colors used for the balloons and the white gel pen


Now I just have to create my CAS!


Best wishes WHIMSY !!!

GingerSnaps!

Howdy ya'll! I've been waiting to use the Slip 'n Slide Die Set from Whimsy - er, rather, it's been waiting for me patiently sitting on my desk. Well, I finally got around to using it and it's been so much fun. I used the large circle and combined it with the new GingerSnaps! clear stamp. I used a dime to help weight the spinner so it would spin easily. Lastly, I colored and used the Wishes Word Chipboard from Make it Crafty.



Colors and more pictures are on my blog HERE.

Polar Bear Christmas - special guest - Dena Concienne

Hello again, I'm back to share another sweet Whimsy Stamp with you.

This time around I am using one of Crissy Armstrong's stamps called Polar Bear's Christmas Tree.  I truly have a "thing" for polar bears.  I think they are adorable. 


He is super cute right?!!  I tore a piece of paper to make the snow bank background and used distress ink to color the sky.  I then flicked white paint onto the sky for the now.  The polar bear was also colored with distress ink.  I added some fur details with a white pen when all was dry.


I added the Holiday Word Die from Whimsy to the bottom.  I cut out several and stacked them together for a raised effect and cut a single red slightly off from the white.  I have again added lots of stickles for some winter sparkle.

Thank you Whimsy Stamps for having me as a Guest Designer, I totally enjoyed working with these super sweet stamps.

Thank you for checking out my blog today!  Hope everyone is keeping warm and cozy!

Hugs, Dena

Angel Wishes - special guest - Dena Concienne

Hey there! I'm so happy to be a Guest Designer for Whimsy Stamps this month!  I love so many of their darling stamps.

For today, I couldn't resist creating with the Angel Wishes stamp by Marina Fedetova.  These sweet faces are irresistible!


I colored the angels on watercolor paper with distress inks using Fired Brick and Bundled Sage for the dresses, and shaded with a bit of Black Soot.  I used lots of stickles to give it the sparkly holiday feel.  The stitching was just an added touch.


Thank you so much, Whimsy Stamps, for having me as a Guest Designer, I had a blast getting back into my card making with this super cute stamp!

Stay tuned since I have one more cutie to share from Whimsy later today!

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you all have a blessed Christmas!

Hugs, Dena

Nutty or Nice - special guest - Heidi Jakobs


Nutty or Nice?


Hi everyone, Heidi here, I’m very excited to be back on the Whimsy blog and bring you today’s project as guest designer. I decided to create a set of fun Christmas cards using the adorable “The Nutcracker“ stamp set, combined with various sentiment stamp sets! So, let’s get started!


For my first card I stamped one of the nutcracker images from “The Nutcracker“ stamp set onto Strathmore Bristol Smooth Paper using Versafine “Onxy Black“ ink and I clear heat embossed afterwards. Then I coloured the image using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and an aquabrush. I used the following Marker colours: Mid Brown, Geranium Red, Deep Red, Light Carmine, Tea Rose, Pale Pink, Ochre, Pale Gray, Blue Gray and Blue. When the colouring was done and dry I added some highlights using a white Gelly Roll Pen and then fussy cut the image leaving a small white border.


Then I started working on my background: for this I first die cut a rectangle panel in the size that I wanted from some crème coloured linen textured card stock. Then I placed this panel in my MISTI, decided where the nutcracker image should go en then positioned the sentiments that come in “The Nutcracker“ stamp set on the panel where I wanted them to be and used the same black ink that I used before to stamp the sentiments.

To finish this first card I die cut a slightly larger mat from some matching blue card stock and adhered both rectangle panels together using liquid glue. These combined panels I adhered to a crème coloured linen textured card base using one millimetre thick foam tape and then adhered the little nutcracker on top also using one millimetre thick foam tape!


For my second card I stamped and coloured another nutcracker image from the same stamp set in the same way as I mentioned for the first card. Then I positioned the nutcracker image, in the same way as I did for the first card, on the crème coloured panel in my MISTI and added the sentiments. For this card I choose a combination of the word “Christmas“ from the “Everyday Scripted Sentiments“ stamp set and “merry“ and “to you and yours“ from the “You’re My Jolly“ stamp set. I love to combine my stamp sets to create new designs!


To put this card together I die cut a slightly larger matching red mat for the crème coloured panel. These panels I adhered together using liquid glue. Then I wrapped some red/white bakers twine around those panels and adhered on the back using regular tape. These combined panels I adhered to a crème coloured linen textured card base using one millimetre thick foam tape and I finished this second card by adhering the nutcracker image on top using one millimetre thick foam tape.


My third and last card for today’s project takes a little bit more time to create but was also a lot of fun. I wanted the nutcrackers to look like the Buckingham Palace Guards in front of their guard houses so I die cut around the stamped images using a smaller rectangle die. I then coloured the images in the same way as I did with the other cards, using the brown colour to enhance the guard house idea. I also stamped and coloured three of the packages that come in the same stamp set and fussy cut around them.

For my sentiment I choose all words from the “You’re myJolly“ stamp set, stamped them on a vellum strip using the same black ink as before and I carefully heat embossed afterwards using clear embossing powder.


Then I adhered the nutcrackers and the packages onto a crème coloured linen textured rectangle panel using liquid glue. This combination I adhered onto a slightly larger red mat also using liquid glue. Next I wrapped the vellum strip around these combined panels and adhered on the back using regular tape and then I finished the card by adhering this combination to a crème coloured linen textured card base using one millimetre thick foam tape.

And that’s it for today’s fun Christmas card project! I wish you all a creative day and a fabulous Holiday Season!

Snow Couple

Hi, Ute here...


Today I want share a wonderful image... two lovely snowmen...  


At first I cut out my card base 11x4 Inch, after than I scored at 5,5 Inch. Now I made a fast watercolor background with a light blue. I decide me, to made a circle with Hologram paper. I colored my snowmen with my Inktense Pencils from Derwent. For the snow effect I use glossy accent and a white puff embossing powder... It works really good... I haven't no glue where is my snow marker... 
At last I found a sentiment who will fit and finished my card.

I wish you all a wonderful, peaceful and lovely Christmas. 

Hugs Ute

Penguin with Star - special guest - Kathy Tanner

Hi, it's Kathy here with my last Guest Design Team card for Whimsy Stamps.
I have really loved working with Whimsy again!!!
Such awesome products to play with and such awesome people to work with too :)

For my last card I chose to use this super adorable stamp by Lee Holland called Penguin With Star.




I think this penguin is a soft, fluffy one, perhaps he's just a chick?  
So I decided to colour him a soft warm grey.
I used Copics to colour the penguin and tree and cut them out.

Then I created my background.
I used Distress Inks and sponged on some Shaded Lilac, Peacock Feathers, Faded Jeans and Black Soot,  Then I splashed some water on top.

I used some Ranger Texture Paste with the Star Dangle Stencil to create the beautiful stars and I added some extra dots of "snow" with a gel pen.

I added a little Wink of Stella to the star the penguin is holding.

For the snowy ground I just tore some strips of white card which I think give a nice soft snow effect.

Copics Used :

R 22, 24, 27
YR 14, 16, 18
Y 15
B 0000
W 00, 1, 3, 5
G 21, 24, 82
YG 13
E 31, 37, 39


It is extremely rare for me not to use a sentiment on a card but I was just happy with the way this card looked without one.

This little penguin is just so sweet and I loved colouring him.
He made me realise that I need some more Lee Holland stamps :)

Thanks for dropping by

Kathy

Christmas Candy with DT Deni

Good Morning All,

Today I am excited to start sharing some new images from Whimsy Stamps, they are now working with Pollycraft so we are excited to start working with another designer on the team. I am a long term fan of the Pollycraft images so am excited to be working with them.

The image I am working with today is Candy, she is actually one of the original ones I owned which is pretty cool.



I printed the image onto X-Press It Blending Card and coloured her up using Copic Markers.

I cut some mat layers from American Crafts Cardstock and Mondi Color Copy using my Cutterpillar Pro Trimmer, and some patterned papers from American Crafts Hollyday Paper Pad.

Candy - Digital Stamp

I used a Decorative Die Nesting Square Bracket. First I traced the inside of the die using a Mechanical Pencil onto the image piece, then cut it out using EK Success Cutterbee Scissors. I then ran the same die with some Kraft colour American Crafts Cardstock through my Sizzix Big Shot, I then traced the outside of the die onto some American Crafts Cardstock and once again cut it out using my Cutterbee Scissors.

Once I had all my layers cut I grabbed some cute Christmas ribbon from my stash and also found this cool gold ribbon stuff so added that to the side of my ribbon. I adhered all the layers together using Scotch ATG and the ribbon also with the same, I then wrapped it around the back of those layers and taped it using some Scotch Magic Tape.

I added all the layers to a Couture Creations Card base using Scotch ATG, I then decorated the inside with the same papers to make it all match.


I hope you have enjoyed my post today, if you have any questions feel free to send me a message or contact me via facebook (all links can be found below).

Using the New Kinetic Dies to Create a Dangling Element

Hello there!  It's Andrea with you today, and I'm super excited about the card I'm sharing with you.  Not only does it have an adorable elf, but it also has a very cool, interactive element.  Check it out.


Anybody else feel a little bit like this elf - balancing too many things - at the holidays?  I know I certainly do!  This adorable Balancing Elf, designed by Krista Heij-Barber, came out last year, but I didn't get a chance to use him.  When Whimsy released the new Kinetic Dies, which have a dangle feature, I knew I had to combine the two.  This image is just perfect for this technique!


I colored that cutie patootie with Copics (colors listed below) and cut him out with my ScanNCut and then set to constructing the dangle.


The scariest part of this process was cutting apart the image I had just colored!  The picture above shows the dies I used from the No-See Kinetic Basics Die Set.  I die-cut them from 110 lb. white cardstock to make sure the element was sturdy.


The above pictures illustrate how I assembled the gift portion of the dangle.  I attached a small foam square onto the circle and placed the tag-looking piece on top, sliding the foam square through the piece's opening.  I then adhered the foam square to the back of the gifts. 


I adhered the long section of the tab piece to the back of the elf, and my dangling element is complete!  I failed to get a photo, but I added another foam square and die-cut circle nearer the top of the gifts for support.  All that's left is putting my card together!


Using the Hand Stitched Nested Rectangles Dies, I die-cut some red patterned paper and adhered it to a white card.  I die-cut a white oval with the Basic Stitched Ovals Die Set, attached the elf, and affixed the oval to my card.  When adhering the elf, I did not put any adhesive on the dangle, including the part adhered to the elf, as I wanted to make sure the dangle moved freely.  I die-cut a banner with the Bold Banners Dies, stamped a sentiment from Christmas Scene Builder with Versafine Onyx Black ink, and clear heat-embossed it.  I popped up the banner with foam tape and added some sparkle to the gifts, along with some glittery enamel dots.  There's a short video below of the dangle in action.
