12 Days of Christmas Day 2 - special guest Libby Hickson - Hot Chocolate Honey


Hello! Some exciting news in my little corner of Stamp Land - I was asked to guest design for someone!! Yes, ME! Whimsy Stamps!! I was pretty darn excited, because that pretty much never happens. And the stamps are so cute, and so much fun to COLOR, so I am of course in heaven.

For my first post for the 12 Days Of Christmas, I'm working with this lovely girl from their recent October release - Hot Chocolate Honey.






































So... I *love* coloring with my Copics, but I'm not one of those people who knows what the heck they're doing when it comes to coloring hair. I just wing it and hope for the best. So if you're expecting the perfection you normally see on the Whimsy blog - well. Let's just say I tried. (I live in Georgia - here in the south you'd just say "bless your heart"...) For the sentiment, I die cut "holiday cheer" in silver glitter paper using the Holiday Word Die Set.



























I had a ton of fun coloring this sweet girl and her cocoa, and cannot wait to dive into the rest of my Whimsy Stamps pile! Thanks for having me, Whimsy!  Ya'll are welcome to come by and say hello over at my blog anytime and be sure to come back here tomorrow for more Whimsy holiday card ideas.

12 Days of Christmas Day 1 - special guest Kay Miller - Oh What Fun


Hello there, it's Kay Miller and I have a fun card to share with you today that I created using a stamp set called Oh What Fun and the coordinating What Fun Die set from the Whimsy Stamps September release! This stamp set is designed by Deb Davis aka amped2stamp and is available in the Whimsy Stamps store.



This is a cute stamp set! I had fun coloring all of the images with Copic markers! I think I used every image in the set on my card! I love how they all worked together so well to create my little Christmas snow scene. I first watercolored a background on watercolor paper using Peerless watercolors. Then colored all of the images, and cut them out with the What Fun coordinating dies


I adhered everything with foam tape except for the line of trees, I just glued those down flat. 

You can find the Oh What Fun Stamp set and What Fun Dies in the Whimsy Stamps Store!

Be sure to stop in tomorrow for another Whimsy Stamps special guest 12-days of Christmas post!


Kay :)

Christmas Tidings to You & Yours

Hello, friends!  It's Andrea with you to share a card featuring the adorable Christmas Bunny Row rubber stamp.  I don't know what's cuter - their little tails or the sweet face of the bunny turned around.  What do you think?


I stamped those cute bunnies with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with my Copics (Did you know Whimsy know carries Copic markers?!).  After adding some details with a white gel pen, I fussy cut the bunnies.  I coated the snow with Spectrum Aqua Clear Sparkle Overlay and added Glossy Accents to the berries.


For my background I inked up some Bristol Smooth paper with distress inks in the following colors:  Spun Sugar, Scattered Straw, Shaded Lilac, and Wilted Violet.  I flicked on and blotted up some water droplets and then heat-set the panel.  I stamped with Versamark the smallest snowflake from Snow Flurry a few times and white heat-embossed the flakes.


I popped up the bunnies with foam tape onto my background and flicked on some watered-down white paint.  Onto vellum I gold heat-embossed a sentiment from Snowman Tidings.  After bannering the vellum, I wrapped it around the top of my background panel and adhered it to the back.  I also added some drops of glue behind the sentiment so that it would lie flat on the front.  Finally, I adhered the whole thing to a top-folding white card.

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to sign up for the Whimsy Stamps newsletter, which usually has a discount code for subscribers.  And don't forget to take advantage of the sale below.

Bonus Bundle Fun

Hello friends, welcome to another blogpost. It's Ellen here. I'm excited to show you two cards with a Whimsy Stamps Bonus Bundles. You can find kits in the shop, these bundles are a group of stamps and dies you can buy for a more affordable price ($ 34,99). Below you see the "Autumn" and "Holiday" bundles that I used for making my cards.

 

For this card I used most of the time the "Holiday bundle". first I cut out the snowflakes from masking paper and did put them down on my card base. After that I did go over my masks with white ink and took them off the card base. Then I sprinkled white ink on top of de card base and finished of the card with the rest of the dies and stamps from the bundle.



On the second card I made a background by using the stamp set (the leaves and berries) and Hand Stitched Nested Rectangles from the "Autumn" and "Holiday" bundle. Further I cut out velume the Doodled Doily Die and on top of that a circle I did die cut out the wreath and some extra's. The senitmend is made by the stamps of both bundles. Finished off the card with an enamel dot on top of the flower.



In my opinion the items from these bundles are picked out very carefully; a lot of these items belong to my favorites and they go so well together. So I hope you liked my inspiration on them.

Gecko Love

HI, Céline here to share with you my latest Whimsy stamps card.

Today I chose Gecko Love , totally love this cutie

It's a really easy card.
My card base is a silhouette base.
Then I cut my paper in circles, with a tiny bordure around the middle.
I've added the LOVE word from the Hearts of Love card builder dies
some enamel dots and voilà

I've colored  my image with copics :
Gecko : YG17, G14, Y07, 05, 03, 01
Box : R56, 46, 29, 27, 24, 89, 85, 83, 81
