Polka Dot Pals Kezia

This is a repost of my project I created for the 31 Night of Halloween at Whimsy Stamps. I shared this on Night 3 on the Whimsy blog where you can pick up and continue for the rest of the month. For this project, I used Polka Dot Pals Kezia and gave her a Halloween flair with cobwebs and spider friends.

For those who have been following me for a while might recognize some of the elements on this card. That’s because I revisited a challenge from long ago and you can see that card and details HERE.
Not having any decorative paper handy at the moment, I decided to color in the background to look like paper. Instead of using orange (from the project you can see HERE), I decided to go for green. Then the final touches were the cobwebs. I think that parts makes this card shine!

Polka Dot Pals Kezia

I’m joining the 31 Nights of Halloween on the Whimsy Stamps blog and for my project I chose to use Polka Dot Pals Kezia – and I created not one, but two projects with her. Whoop! For this project, I chose to keep it simple and just use Halloween colors to color her. This was also a great chance to color purple hair. 😀 To see my other project with an even more Halloween flair, check out my post HERE for Night 3 of the 31 Nights of Halloween.

Polka Dot Pals Kezia is an adorable and versatile stamp set. If you don’t have her in your collection already, I suggest you add her today. She comes with a cute little dog and other accessories that can be used in the background or on their own – such as an ice cream truck and an ice cream cone to put on top of that. Very fun!

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 with a patriotic theme. I kept with red, white and blue to color and then added a little yellow in the stars and confetti background. I hoped that I could use it any time during the summer and not just for the 4th of July.

Polka Dot Pals Imogen in Mason Jar from Whimsy Stamps

What can you do in an hour? Such a magical weekend and today I’m sharing with you the card I colored for the DigiMojo Facebook event using Polka Dot Pals Imogen in a Mason Jar from Whimsy Stamps. This is a digital coloring scene so everything is already merged together and you just print and color. I love how simple that process is and how quickly I can get into coloring. This specific card took me about an hour to color and you can watch the video of that on YouTube HERE.

I had colored this image a few times so I set out to color her differently. That started out with choosing different colors for her hair and clothes which then lead me to a nighttime sky. This specific Polka Dot Pal character is available in as shown as a Digital Coloring Scene HERE. But you can also pick up this gal as a clear rubber stamp set HERE to coordinate with all the other Polka Dot Pals and accessories.
For this card, you can watch the video for insights on how she was colored. You can also visit some of my other blog posts for variations how how this digital coloring scene and/or the clear stamp sets have been used. THIS ONE features no lines coloring and extra twine colored in. THIS ONE features stamping and coloring on Neenah Desert Storm paper. THIS ONE features a blue and yellow color pallet. THIS ONE features an experiment in coloring a sunset with dots. THIS ONE features extra attention to the jar reflection and details with white. Finally THIS ONE features the use of a DoveArt background.

Polka Dot Pals Zachary from Whimsy Stamps

HELLO friend! Are you ready for another Polka Dot Pals Zachary? This is the one I colored last night in the live session I had in Zoom. My challenge was to color the eye so it was looking up – this was my first attempt and seems to work out. However, I can now “see” some mistakes I made and ways to make it better next time. Sometimes it’s a process and the results are achieved one step at a time. For me, this was step one.

In the Polka Dot Pals Zachary set, comes the two squirrels, leaves and side tree. To stamp the images, I first stamped the squirrel on the head then masked it before stamping the boy. After that I masked those to stamp the tree. Finally I stamped the second squirrel on his foot.
To assemble the card, I used the Bold ABC Die, Wonky Stitched Rectangles, and Comic Speech Bubbles dies. The speech bubble serves as the tree leaves and a speech bubble. Then I stamped a few extra leaves from Polka Dot Pals Zachary and then the AlFaDoodles Alphabet for the HELLO. I also had a pine scented scratch and sniff sticker so I placed one on the tree. Mmmm fresh pine!

Polka Dot Pals Zachary from Whimsy Stamps

New release today from Whimsy Stamps and my favorite is Polka Dot Pals Zachary, of course! I couldn’t wait to pair him with the Fill a Wagon set to create this scene. At the time of designing these sets, I had no idea that the squirrel would prop up so perfectly on the wagon with Zachary looking perfectly into it’s eyes. That was pure luck but on the other side, I like to make all these sets interchangeable so it didn’t surprise me. (The second squirrel looks cute on Zachary’s head too. Just sayin’!)

For this card, I stamped all the elements in a no-lines color ink. This way I was able to get them on the page without having to mask anything. I haven’t colored a blonde kid for a long time so it took me a while to remember a good color combo. I like how yellow his hair is in this scene.
