A Dr. Suess Christmas

This sweet new Ellie stamp reminded of Horton from Dr. Suess and so I had to go with some Dr. Suess colors for this card!

1006-dr. suess elephant

I used a few awesome Whimsy Stamps products for this card:

1006-dr. suess elephant side

To create my background, I first heat embossed the sentiment in gold and then inked the card at an angle using festive berries, worn lipstick & spun sugar.

I then added gold mousse over the polka dot stencil and set aside to dry.

While the mousse dried, I stamped adorable Ellie, colored with copic markers, fussy cut out and added sparkle and gold dots.

To finish off my card, I pop dotted Ellie and added a few green domes and white nuvo drops.

copic markers used:

  • Ellie-W5, W3, W1, W0, W00, R32, R30 & 0
  • Tree-BG13, BG32, BG11, BG10, E97, E95, Y38, Y35, Y32 & 0

50 Shades of Color

I have been loving all the bright and fun rainbow creations the past few months and haven’t tired of making them!  I have another one for you today using Whimsy stamps new August release.

0825-polka dot rainbows

I started my card with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base that fits perfectly into the 9A size envelopes that you can find at your local craft store or online.

A list of the Whimsy Stamps products used:

To make the polka dot background, I taped off the part for the sentiment and inked in rainbow color over the polka dot stencil.  The colors I used were: spun sugar, dried marigold, squeezed lemonade, shabby shutters, tumbled glass & milled lavender.

0825-polka dot rainbows side

For the rainbows I die six of them and inked in festive berries, carved pumpkin, squeezed lemonade, twisted citron, broken china & wilted violet gluing them and trimming off the edges.

I added a cloud at the end of the rainbows.  To make them shine a little, I added sparkletz in coordinating colors.

For the sentiments, I heat embossed them in black, coloring the “COLOR” with copic markers and the bottom one heat embossed on the banner.

Copic markers used:

  • R24, R22, R20, Y19, Y15, Y13, Y11, YG05, YG01, YG00, YG0000, BG05, BG02, BG01, BG000, V15, V12, V01 & V000

Bright Underwater Scene!

I have had so much fun creating with these sweet sea creatures and wanted to use a new bright color palette for this card!

0820-purple underwater scene

I used these wonderful Whimsy Stamps products:

I began my slim line card by creating an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base.  They fit perfectly into the size 9A envelopes which can easily be found at your local craft store or online!

0820-purple underwater scene close up

I began the background by repeatedly stamping the sea creatures in a very light ink and die cutting the two stitched circles.  I inked the seedless preserves over the wave stencil and after taking it off I inked the whole piece with milled lavender.  To add some sparkle I added some nuvo glitter accents.

While that dried, I then stamped some sea creatures, colored with copic markers and added some accents with a white pen and fussy cut out.

Next, I die cut the coral and inked in cracked pistachio, mustard seed, abandoned coral & spiced marmalade.

0820-purple underwater scene side

To put the card together, I pop dotted the repeatedly stamped piece on the front and layered the coral behind the circles and pop dotted the cute sea creatures.

I heat embossed the sentiment in pink on a stitched banner and added some bubbles and blue nuvo drops.

Copic markers I used:

  • seahorse-Y38, Y35, Y32, B02, B01, B00, B000, B0000 & 0
  • turtle-G05, G03, G02, G00, G000, G0000 & 0
  • starfish-R02, R01, R00, R000, R0000 & 0

A Flying Cat Witch

This Halloween Cat Witch from the new August release at Whimsy Stamps is too adorable!

august release-flying witch cat

The Whimsy Stamps products I used:

I started my card by inking a small area with black soot & hickory smoke and added the gold mousse over the star stencil.

While that dried, I stamped the cat, colored with copic markers, fussy cut out and added some wink of stella to the smoke for a bit of shimmer.

To finish up the card, I stamped the sentiment in versafine black ink and drew the lines around the edge.

I pop dotted the Flying Cat Witch and added the sparkletz and black nuvo drops.

If you haven’t seen the variety of sets from the new August release you need to see it!  There is a range from rainbows to gothic!

Thank you for flying by!

This Halloween card was created using Whimsy Stamps products:

I started my slim line card with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base.

I began the background by inking with black soot, hickory smoke & dusty concord and created the stars using silver mousse.

While that dried, I die cut three levels of grass and inked each with forest moss, pine needles & peeled paint.  I also die cut the clouds and inked the bottoms with carved pumpkin & dried marigold.

Next, I stamped the pumpkins, colored with copic markers, and fussy cut out.

To put the card together, I layered the grass with pumpkins and added orange nuvo drops around them.

For the sentiment, I heat embossed in orange on a stitched banner and pop dotted on the side.

Just Purr-fect!

This is exactly how my cat would look going to heaven!

One of my favorite things about stamp sets is using them in different ways and Whimsy Stamps new Going Catty set can be used for more than just Halloween!
The great Whimsy Stamps products I used for this card:
I love how this spazzy kitty is the center of attention on this simple card!
To start my card, I used the sun rays stencil and salty ocean & tumbled glass oxide inks to create the background in the corner.
I then die cut clouds & stars from thick white cardstock and silver glitter paper.
Next, I stamped the flailing kitty, colored with copic markers, and fussy cut out.  I then die cut the wings from vellum and added some wink of stella to make it shimmer.
To put it all together, I added the clouds & stars around the kitty with some sparkletz stars & nuvo drops.
I finished the card with the sentiment heat embossed in white on a black banner and added one more glitter star.
If you haven’t had a chance to check out the new August release you are in for a treat!  They have a huge variety of new sets ranging from rainbows to gothic!

Sweet Sea Creatures!

I have a really sweet simple underwater card for you today using the new July release from Whimsy Stamps!

0730-sea circles

Here are the fabulous Whimsy Stamps products I used:

I began my slim line card with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base and trimmed the extra piece a little smaller than the front.

0730-sea circles side

I first inked the front piece lightly with tumbled glass around the edges and die cut stitched circles, leaving some extra space for the banner.  I then inked another piece to fit behind the circles using the wave stencil and mermaid lagoon, peacock feathers & tumbled glass.  Next, I added wink of stella to the waves for some sparkle.  I love a little shimmer!

I stamped the sea creatures, colored with soft copic markers, and fussy cut out.  Then I die cut the coral and inked with twisted citron & shaded lilac.

0730-sea circles close up

To put the card together I pop dotted the circle piece over the waves and added the coral along the bottom and the sea cuties in each circle.

I heat embossed the sentiment in white on the stitched banner and inked with mermaid lagoon & peacock feathers.  For my finishing touches I added sparkletz (sequins Whimsy style!) and blue nuvo drops.

I love the simple design of this slim line and the bubbles all along one side!

copic markers used:

  • jellyfish-BV01, V20, BV000, BV0000 & 0
  • turtle-YG05, YG0, YG21, YG00, YG0000, G21, G20 & 0
