Hi friends I have more card making fun for you today. I'm excited to be a guest designer this month over at Whimsy Stamps. They have so many fun designs and today I'm sharing Whimsy Stamps Dorky Dragon. I love coloring stamps that make me smile, and this little guy does that for sure with his little friends....it's been great weather here to sit on the grass and watch the flowers grow so this one really spoke to me.   Whimsy Stamps Dorky Dragon   This little guy is illustrated by Dustin Pike and there is quite a collection of him involved in all kinds of shenanigans over on the Whimsy Stamp site<<<<click here   Whimsy Stamps Dorky Dragon

How to create the Whimsy Stamps Dorky Dragon Card:

  • Stamp the image in Gina K Amalgam Ink onto Neenah 80# card and color with Copic Markers:
  • Die cut around the image with the Whimsy Stamps Zig Zag Rectangles Dies - that fun zig zag just adds to the quirkiness of the card
  • White heat emboss the card front with the Whimsy Stamps Lots of Dots background stamp.
  • Blend Distress Oxide Inks into the background starting from the bottom, Broken China, Cracked Pistachio and Squeezed Lemonade.
  • Cut a black mat and attach behind the art piece and then attach it to the card front with Foam Tape to add a bit of Dimension.
  • White heat emboss the sentiment from Whimsy Stamps Bold Sentiments onto a scrap of black and trim.
Whimsy Stamps Dorky Dragon Once I was all done coloring him, I went back in and added a bit of Pointillism with the medium green pen and a yellow Uni Pasco paint pen. These dots mirror the dots in the image, and the coordinating background and add further interest to the image. ( or he has yellow measles, haha).


Greens: YG03 - 17 - 67 Violet: V12 - 15- 17 Yellow: Y15 - 17 - 38 Pinks: R81 - 83 - 85 Gray: C1 - 3 - 5   I hope you enjoyed today's card, I'll be back next week with another card using a different batch of stamps from Whimsy Stamps, until then, give them a visit HERE, I'm sure you will find something to make you smile.
