Hello there!
I am so excited to be a Guest Designer for 
Whimsy Stamps this month!!!!
I created two cards, and I used the stamp sets Candy Corn Dress Up and Going Batty
I also used some dies, Kinetic Curved Hills and Tombstone Tag.
And, of course a stencil, Sun Rays!


I started off by inking up some watercolor cardstock. 
For the night time sky I used distress oxide inks in shades 
tumbled glass, mermaid lagoon, and chipped sapphire. 
Than I placed the Sun Rays Stencil over the cardstock and 
brushed on some white ink. I added a few splashes of water.
For the field I used crushed olive, mowed lawn, and forest moss 
and added a few splashes of water and paint splatter.
  I die cut the field using Kinetic Curved Hills.
I die cut the tombstone with the Tombstone Tag Dies and
used hickory smoke and black soot to color it.
I wrote RIP with a gel pen.


I colored up the Candy Corn Dressup cuties with Copic Markers in these shades: 
W0, W1, W3, Y15, Y17, YR04, YR07
V12, V17, C1, C2, C5, C7
E25, and E29.
For the wood fence I used Wo, W2, W4, and W6.
I heat embossed the sentiments.
I added some shimmer using clear stickles.


For this next card I inked up the Sun Rays Stencil using wilted violet,
fossilized amber, and twisted citron.
Then splattered the same inks onto the background.


I colored the images from Going Batty with Copic Markers in the following shades:
V12, V17, Y13, Y17, YG21, YG25
BG11, E31, E33, W00, W1, W6
E70, E71, E74, E79, E93, W00, W1.
I used hickory smoke to create a base.
I added some clear stickles for shimmer and some sequins.

I hope you enjoyed this post!

Hello everyone!  I'm so excited to be guest designing with Whimsy Stamps this month!  
Today I'm sharing a fun shaker card using the super cute Whimsy Candy Corn Dress Up stamp set.  


First I made an alcohol ink background.  Then I stamped the Spider Web Frame stamp set onto acetate with black ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I adhered it to an A2 Rectangle Shaker Pouch, then I punched a hole in the pouch.  I colored the witch from Candy Corn Dress Up with Copic markers, fussy-cut it, and adhered it to a spinner/slider mechanism.  


I assembled the shaker card and added clear sequins.  Now when you shake the card, the candy corn witch moves up and down and spins and turns.  Lastly I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment from the You're My Boo stamp set in gold onto black cardstock and fussy cut it.  


Be sure to check out the Whimsy Facebook Group, if you haven't already.  They have tons of great inspiration, and I will be sharing projects this month as well.  Also, if you love giveaways, be sure to mark your calendar for the 31 Nights of Halloween!


Thanks for joining me!  Have a great week!

Candy Corn Dress Up Clear Stamps*NEW Spider Web Frame Rubber Cling Stamp You're My Boo Clear Stamps

Spooky, Spooky

Happy Saturday here on the Whimsy Blog. It's all about Halloween at the moment so I have a spooky creation to share with you today! I used several of the new Whimsy Stamps September products to create my card.

For the background I used the older Grass & Cloud Edger die set and a blank Mylar sheet to create my own cloud stencil. I then inked the clouds using distress inks and a cosmetic brush. To complete my background I stamped the graveyard scene from the NEW Halloween Scream clear set with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink.



I used the NEW Arched Window die to create my spooky window scene as well as the NEW Dracula Going Batty die set. The sentiment is also from the NEW Halloween Scream clear set.




Here is a link list of all the Whimsy products I've used to create my spooky card:

Hi Everyone, it's Faye here today :)

It pains me to say it, but, Christmas is around the corner. Fear not though, Whimsy Stamps has already started releasing images to tempt even the most Bah Humbuggy of crafters into creating for the Big Day!

I saw Ellie's Bauble and needed to colour her instantly, she's that kind of girl!



So, with Copics at the ready, I started with the snow. When I colour an image, I always start with the things that are the lightest colour... I don't want to accidentally pull any of a darker colour into something I have coloured in a pale shade. With that in mind, I did the hat trim too.


I did the sky next, but carefully, because I was using Colourless Blender Various Ink and sponge to create all the texture, and I didn't want it to flood into the snow. I could have used a mask, but, I'm a lazy colourist! Ssssh, it's a secret, obviously, I used a mask, because that's the kind of girl I am. Ahem!


After all that, I just needed to colour Ellie, her hat, some trees, add some glitter and a sentiment (Everyday Scripted Sentiments, thanks for asking) and the job is done. I love it when a plan comes together.

Copics Used... 
 Sky; B37, B39, BV08, Various Ink - Colourless Blender
 Snow; B0000, C0, C1
Trees; G94, G99, T3, T5, T7
Eyes; B60, B63
Ellie; T0, T1, T3
Pink; R00, R30, E70
Gold; Y26, YR24, YR27
Red; R43, R35, R37, R39, RV69

Goodies Used...
