Special Guest - Adelle Emery

Hello, friends. Adelle here again with my second project for Whimsy Stamps. Today, I am sharing a Christmas card made with the adorable Santa's Train stamp set. There are so many adorable train cars to choose from that you could have quite the long card if you choose to use them all.

I used (a lot of) Copic markers to make this card. I was going to ink a background, but as soon as I stamped the steam coming from the train I realized I’d try something different (for me) and do it with Copics. That, and the thought of cutting masks for the steam made me dizzy. I really like how it turned out!

First, I stamped the train and cars on a panel of white cardstock. Then, I chose (again, a lot) of Copic markers to color the scene.

Copics: R39, R29, R24, R22 (Reds), YG67, YG17, YG25, YG23 (Greens), Y28, Y18, Y15, Y13 (Yellows), E55, E53, E47, E49 (Browns), E97, E21, E00, R32 (Skin), B26, B24, B12 (Blues for presents), and B6, B4, B2, B1, B00, B0000 (Blues for sky).

After coloring, I added a track for the train, some connectors for the cars, and then I cut the panel down and popped it up on a white card base. I also added stars in the sky with a white gel pen and stamped a sentiment from the set in black.
Thanks for having me as a guest!

Wintry Scene

Brrrrrr! Fall is well under way with Thanksgiving this week if you're from the US, but there's always the chance of early snow, which is what I envisioned as I worked up this card using the Wintry Cabin rubber stamp.

I stamped the image with VersaFine Onyx Black and watercolored it with Zig Real Brush Markers. I thought of adding clear Wink of Stella but instead used a white pigment pen to add falling snow.

I used a Copic N1 on the Forest Majesty birch trees and Distress Oxide Vintage Photo on the deer from that die set. I love that the deer come in a variety of different sizes so I had no problem finding the perfect one for my card.

I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and embossed it with Ranger White Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder.

Did you notice I had popped up the deer on foam dots? My husband really liked the texture of the card--the embossed sentiment, the trees and the deer.  Who knew he could be so observant--lol.



Black Friday

Gingerbread Greetings!...

Hello everyone!

Sue here!

Today's card is sweeeeeet! - and involves gingerbread - so what's not to like!!! (;

I have used another of the 
new release stamp sets,

I stamped and coloured those toooo cute Gingerbread Greetings houses with Copics and cut them out.

I blended Peacock Feathers and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide over a piece of smooth Bristol Vellum Card and splattered it with water and white gesso.  Then I die cut the card with the fabulous Slimline Marquee Die.

I die cut a piece of white glitter card with the same die and assembled the die cuts as shown placing the white card inside the Marquee Die apertures.

I fixed the whole thing to a white glitter card background and added the Gingerbread Greetings 
houses in a row along the Marquee Die. I stuck them down with Crafty Foam Tape so that the design didn't look too flat.

I stamped a sentiment from the Gingerbread Greetings Clear Stamp Set onto white card with black ink and die cut it with a Quick Strips Die.

I fixed the sentiment to the top left hand side of the card design.

Copics used - 
Gingerbread Houses (Cuteness Overload)! (;
BV31, E30, E11, YR31, YR21, E34, E97, E37, E79, R89, R29
Big hugs and thanks to lovely Elaine (Marker Geek) for the colour combo inspiration!

Please have a good look around the Whimsy Inspirations Blog  at the gorgeous new release cards by the rest of the Whimsy Stamps Creative Team – and then follow that with a trip to Whimsy Stamps store for some essential retail therapy!

Happy Crafting!
