Rainbows and Butterflies with Alanna

Hi Whimsy fans - Alanna here and I have a bright and fun card to share with you today for Whimsy Stamps. I started by taking some of my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and scribbled them onto a piece of water color card stock. I then spritzed the panel and let the markers move.  After the panel was dry, I then spritzed it again with a bunch of shimmer spray. You can't see it in the picture but IRL it is so beautiful and sparkly.

It was now time to get to work on the stamping. I took one of the beautiful butterfly images from the Flight of the Butterflies stamp set and stamped it 3 times with black ink. I used my Misti to stamp them multiple times to get a really crisp impression.  I added a sentiment from the Simple Sentiments set, die cut my panel with a stitched die and then added some White Blizzard Nuvo Drops. 

Meet Our Illustrators - Deb Davis

Hi I’m Deb Davis and I work full time as the creative director at Whimsy Stamps.  It’s my job to keep us on trend, to develop fun new products and to be Denise’s right hand woman (best job ever).  I also have my own Amped2Stamp line of Whimsy products.  And since I’m a long-time avid stamper it’s a huge bonus that I get to design with our amazingly talented creative team too (best team ever).

1. If you had to choose, what would your top 3 favorite Whimsy products be and why? 1-Our clear stamp sets.  Because each set has so many options/possibilities and many combine with one another for even more versatility, I like getting the most I can out of any stamp set.  2-our new stencils, I love our designs and the quality is the best I’ve ever used.  3-our complementing dies, because I love the fact they can be used to cut out their matching stamp set images but they also include dies that can be used independently of the stamp set. 

2. If you could have a super power, what would it be?  Definitely time travel but if I could have a second one it would be to talk to animals.

3. What Whimsy stamp or stamp set could you not live without and why? I’d have to say Deepest Sympathy and Magical Birthday Wishes, because you always need birthday and sympathy sentiments.

4, What is your favorite color combo and favorite coloring medium? There’s no way I could pick just one favorite color combo because I love every color I ever met.  I do like some more than others so here are 3 long-time favs, pink-grey-white, red-black-white and anything pastel peachy/ corals with pastel turquois/aqua.  But ask me tomorrow and I’d probably give you a different answer.  Just like color combos I love all color mediums but this answer is a little easier since my go-to mediums are water coloring with either distress inks or pencils and Copic markers.

5.  If you had to survive on just 3 foods, what would they be? Well between what I don’t eat, what I can’t eat and what I won’t eat that pretty much really does leave me only 3 foods to survive on.  So those three foods would have to be fruit, seafood, potatoes and veggies, oh wait that’s 4 foods, okay I survive on 4 foods not 3.

6. What do you like most about being a member of the Whimsy Creative Team? Brainstorming with Denise, seeing all the creative projects the team makes with our products and being part of a diverse, innovative, professional team of encouraging and talented artists.

7. What challenges you when stamping/crafting? Not smudging in some way or another every single project that I make.

My favorite project would have to be this one using the Paws to Remember stamp set.  This was the first set I created for our Rainbow Bridge collection and is near and very dear to my heart for many reasons.

If I could pick another one it would be this one of Franken Schmutz, because he just cracks me up every time I see him and I love that my Monster Mash collection can be used all year long and aren’t  especially for Halloween at all.  Although Halloween is my favorite hands down. 

Thanks for letting me share some stuffs about myself, I’m so very blessed and grateful to be part of this amazingly wonderful world of Whimsy!

Stamping Hugs, Deb

Meet Our Illustrators - Krista Heij-Barber

Hi, I'm Krista. I am a Canadian, transplanted to Florida, transplanted to the Midwest...so what does that make me besides super cold?! Haha! I used to work at Walt Disney Animation in Florida and am now Illustrating full time and enjoying the work I do for Whimsy Stamps!

1. Some of my favorite Whimsy products are the rubber stamps of course ;) and if I could
have matching die cuts, that is the “look” I like best. I love to co-ordinate my images with
patterned papers as a background or even an accent, such as a heart.
2. My super power..... oh boy, I really wish I had super speed. So I could get everything done in a day that needs to be done.
3. A couple things that would surprise anyone....1. I can pick up objects with my feet. 2. I am
quite an introvert, although many artists are.
4. My favorite color combo has to be teal/aqua, grey and a pale, pale pink. Really anything
combined with teal. My favorite coloring medium is digital. As you can tell by the Whimsy
ads I color all my stuff digitally. I also love coloring with colored pencils. I am really hoping
to do some videos on that in 2018.
5. If I had to survive on 3 food, I think it would be water, cream and coffee. That pretty much
says it all. :)

My favorite stamp that I’ve done for Whimsy... that’s a hard one. I never am happy with what I do, like a true artist. ;)  I am partial to the “Sledding Time” and the “Sledding Snowman”. I love the movement these have.
