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.
You can find most of these products at Whimsy Stamps:
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!
Somewhere I got the idea to make a gold Christmas card and this Christmas Tree stamp seemed to fit the theme. I stamped the background with the Brushed Stripes Background stamp and then built the card up from there. Both of these are fabulous rubber stamps from Whimsy Stamps. The holly leaves were from my stash and I embellished them plus the accessories on the tree with glitter Stickles.
These are the Copic Markers I used on the Christmas Tree:
YR30, 23, 24
YG21, 23, 25, 67
C7, 9, T3, BV23
I used Scattered Straw distressed ink for the background.
The Christmas Tree and other Whimsy Stamps are available at Little Miss Muffet Stamps.
I needed some more bookmarks around the house and thought this image would be perfect for the size. So it’s a flat bookmark and one layer of cardstock to fit in the book. The image is Mountain Song DoveArt for Whimsy Stamps and is a great scene to color. I wanted a splash of color and thought a red herring would be funny so I colored the bird red. It was a bit too much of the red so I brought in some browns and black.
For my project, I’ve used Fantail Goldfish a DoveArt for Whimsy Stamps rubber stamp. I wanted to try something different and stumbled across Nicoletta‘s amazing water project. She was following a tutorial on the Copic Italia blog and I knew that was something I should try. So this is my first attempt on the Faintail Goldfish. It was about step three that I decided I didn’t like it, however, I pushed through to finish so I could learn from my mistakes. I think the next time will be a little easier.
Here are the Copic markers I used on Fantail Goldfish:
It’s new releases at Whimsy Stamps and I have a project showcasing the Sunflower DoveArt rubber stamp. This one was stamped on Balsa wood then colored with Prismacolor colored pencils. I also used some glitter and transparent paper from Whimsy Stamps for a sparkled finish. Finally, some butterflies and a ladybug embellishment were added for a friendly touch.
This is Beaver which is a DoveArt for Whimsy rubber stamp. In the background I used the Farmhouse Shiplap Background from a previous project that I deconstructed and recycled. I normally don’t do that but I couldn’t resit pairing it up with the Beaver. The leaves are Make it Crafty chipboard embellishments and colored them green and helped enhance the outdoor woodsy theme.
These are the Copic markers I used on the Beaver and Leaves:
I saw these Zebras and knew I wanted to go for a rainbow theme. This stamp is a DoveArt for Whimsy rubber stamp and even though you might think of zebras being black and white, this stamp is actually very versatile. You can color them any which-way!
