Special Guest - Martha Gomez

Hello, Whimsy fans!  Today we welcome Martha Gomez to the blog.

Hello there, I am so excited to be a guest designer this month with Whimsy Stamps. For today, I prepared two cards featuring the Bearing Gifts Stamp Set and the FaDoodle Frames Scalloped Rectangles Dies.

Bearing Gifts is a clear stamp set that include three cute bears, gifts and perfect sentiments for a party. My first card is a slimline card. I stamped the images onto white cardstock and colored them with Illustrator markers from Spectrum Noir. Then, I fussy cut them with scissors and set them aside.

I die cut the small size of the FaDoodle Frames Scalloped Rectangles Dies onto white smooth card stock. Additionally, with masking tape I covered the half of each scalloped rectangle and inked the free area with Clear Skies Ink from Simon Hurley.


To make the base of the card, I used white cardstock and pasted two different layers of patterned paper to mat my the adorable bears. Additionally, I splattered the rectangles with Shimmer and pasted all the images with crafty foam tape to add more interest.  


My second project was more simple. I just used the masking technique to stamp onto white cardstock the bears included in the Bearing Gifts. In addition, I colored them with Illustrator Markers and inked the lower part of the layer.

On a separate piece of white cardstock, I stamped the gift images and repeated some of the boxes to make them taller. I colored each piece with different colors of alcohol markers. Then, I pasted them over the decorated layer with foam tape. The final touch, a few splatters of metallic ink and the combination of three words as sentiment. 

 See you soon!
