Polka Dot Pals Mason from Whimsy Stamps

Sometimes I have left over images that I’ve stamped that are sitting on my desk for no reason. I don’t like to toss them out so they sit there until I find a use for them. This is one of those cases where I had an extra unicorn from Polka Dot Pals Mason. I needed to test out a new color combination so I nabbed it and colored away.

Funny thing is, after I colored it, it sat on my desk for another couple weeks until I figured out what to do with it. This bookmark came to mind and I used the Bold ABC Die and AlFaDoodles to create a scene reminiscent of an Easter Egg hunt. With additional flowers from Polka Dot Pals Mason and Polka Dot Pals Syeda, it added a whimsical look that I was going for.
Lastly I added some white accents with a gel pen and glitter glue in some areas.

Polka Dot Pals Ophelia from Whimsy Stamps

For this project, I used the cake, an accessory stamp from Polka Dot Pals Ophelia, and created a birthday card. It’s also an Easter themed or spring birthday card with the bunnies and carrot that I used from the same set. It made for a cute scene.

Sunshine Elle by Paper Nest Dolls

I’ll be teaching at the Paper Nest Dolls retreat in April and had a chance this week to play around with one of their stamps. This is Sunshine Elle. My original goal was to have yellow highlights on the left half from the sunny balloon so I started with yellow and colored where I thought they would be. However, by time I finished I had blended out most of that color. Oh’well, learned lesson for next time.

Some other fun things I did while coloring was some creative color placement on her face and then I enjoyed making the beach scene in the background. I’m not teaching these at the retreat so this was something I did for fun. Enjoy!

Sewing Machine from Let’s Make Art

I spent the day with my Mom and we got our watercolors out. This is the Sewing Machine kit from Let’s Make Art and it was a good project to get back into creating.

This first one is my Mom’s sewing machine. She did an awesome job and the best part was she actually had one of these antique Singer sewing machines at her house that we could reference. I needed that because I wasn’t sure what all the items were on the back so seeing the hand crank in real life was very useful.
Here’s my version.

Polka Dot Pals Ophelia from Whimsy Stamps

For this project, I used the cake, an accessory stamp from Polka Dot Pals Ophelia, and created a birthday card. I wanted to go for a boy card so with the color choices then I hope it worked. This cake makes for a simple and quick card and I like that. The accessory stamps are great!

I made this an action card too. You can see that below where I placed the cake on an Action Wobble.
