I liked the full size background of this stamp so much that I needed to make a second card. This is The Mailbox rubber stamp by DoveArt Studios and available at Whimsy Stamps. The color scheme on this one was so that the flowers, Indian Paintbrush (Castilleja coccinea), would stand out the most.
For this project, I’ve mashed up a Polka Dot Pal with a DoveArt stamp and created this scene. These combination is always fun to work on and they make great scenes. This one features The Mailbox in the background and Polka Dot Pals Mason as the character. I’d swoon too if someone put a friendly note in my mailbox with flowers. Sigh
This was a fun project for me that I’ve been working on this week which uses electronics. The scene was created using Polka Dot Pals Raden and Tree Swings from Whimsy Stamps. I then used an EZ Light kit to make this an interactive card.
It’s time to jump back and create the iconic post of “what I colored at boot camp” and show off all the things I did. These, of course, were all done using Copic markers. Jennifer’s Boot Camp is amazing and great friends too – shout out to everyone I was sitting next to during the camp and at lunch day after day: Kellie, Karen F, Wendy, Cathy T, Therese, Meenu, Taya, Cathy R, Janice W, Nan, Ginger, Charlene, Mags and Luigi. Thank you to all the helpers and it was so much fun getting to know you all: Patty, Cassandra, Ellie and Becky. Also thank you to all the sponsors. Thank you Jennifer for everything.
I’m using the DoveArt line of stamps Create A Scene Forest to put together a quick winter scene. Seeings how cold it is for me right now, I thought this would be fitting. The stamp was embossed in black then I used the Karin Brushmarker watercolor markers to color the background and some shadows.
The white snow was created with a Marvy Snow Marker then heat set to puff it up. The sentiment is a Make it Crafty chipboard embellishment colored with Copic Markers. The background layer of paper was also colored with Copic Markers.

It’s new release week at Whimsy Stamps and I’m excited that the DoveArt Winter Pines is included in the list. This is such a fun stamp and can be used on it’s own but also in the background with other stamps. I’ve already created two cards with it that I wanted to reshare to give some inspiration for the release.
You might be surprised how this first one was create – very quick!
