Wyanet (Beautiful)

I’ve had my eye on this cutie for a while and was thrilled to be able to color her up. This is Wyanet (Beautiful) from Whimsy Stamps and in the background is Path in the Woods, also by Whimsy Stamps. I thought with her sitting on the cliff ledge she would be perfect to look over all of the forest.

One of my favorite things was coloring the Path in the Woods with a river instead of a path. This was an idea I saw from Megan who was the guest designer at Whimsy. It was a brilliant idea and added some versatility to the background stamp. When coloring the background, I tried it differently from my last one but not quite as happy with the foliage as I wanted to be so I think that’s a challenge to try it again… and find another way. Any suggestions?

Here are the supplies I used:

Paper Mill Curious Metallic Cryogen White Cardstock
Gina K Designs Amalgam Ink – Whisper
Make it Crafty Chipboard Embellishments

Naughty Puppies

Here’s another little note card using one of the puppies from the Naughty Puppies set from Whimsy Stamps. He’s backed by some of the Whimsy Stamps glitter and transparent paper in the background plus some fruit paper I had in my stash. I colored the other two puppies from this set in normal puppy colors so I decided to go for a green one this time. 😀

Dreamy Dragon

This looks like the perfect Saturday afternoon activity so I couldn’t resit choosing this pal to color. This is Dreamy Dragon from Whimsy Stamps.  As I was looking for inspiration, I noticed this is usually colored in green, blue or purple. So I challenged myself to use a different color and a fiery orange came to mind.

These are the Copic markers I used on Dream Dragon:

For my project today I was inspired by Nicolette’s bunny project and wanted to use the same layout. I found some of my pastel papers and then colored Peggy from Whimsy Stamps to use as the center focus. I added a couple die cut clouds and pasted it all together.

Here are the colors I used on Peggy:
YG21, 23, 17
BV23, 20, B41, C00, 1, 3
R00, E0000, 00, 30, 31

For my project today, I’ve used Polly rubber stamp from Whimsy Stamps.  I did a little creative color placement on her face to define it more and give her larger eyes.  The paper I selected only had yellow so I tried not to pull in too many other colors.  Making her outfit black and white helps draw attention to her head, rose and envelope.  Then I also kept the accessories and paper toned down.

These are the Copic markers I used on Polly:
E0000, 000, 21, 33, 35, BV20, R11
YG01, 23, 97
C1, 3, W8
E47, 08, 19, YR14
YR24, 23, 31, 30, Y23, E23
W9, 6, 5, 3

I’ve added details to the face and gave her larger eyes. 
As a comparison you can see the before and after of her face. 
These characters are adorable and I love the added color in the eyes.

Autumn Happiness

Happy Valentines day, early!  I have a fun project to share today using Autumn Happiness which I converted from an autumn theme to a Valentine theme.  I did this by stamping the image in light pink so I could color over the leaves and change the shape.  I also added a few Wee accessory stamps in light gray – which is also easy to color over.

I first stamped Autumn Happiness in light pink.  Then in light gray, I stamped the two accessory Wee stamps which came as a gift for placing an order.  They were so cute, I wanted to add them to something and this guy’s tail was a perfect perch.  From this point, I started to color the leaves in heart shapes.

After I colored some hearts over the larger leaves, then I colored the rest by filling it in with smaller leaves.  Lastly, I added some white accents and started to color the rest of the image.  I even added a little creative color placement on the tail and carried the white stripe around from his belly.

Here are the Copic markers I used on Autumn Happiness:
T7, 5, 3, 1
R12, 05, 29
RV11, 23, 14, 34, BV23
E04, R02, 12

Oak Tree Girl

This cute stamp is Oak Tree Girl from Wee/Whimsy Stamps.  I had fun coloring this one and adding all the autumn leaves.  I’ve been looking for robins when I travel because I remember them from when I was a kid.  I don’t see them here in Texas or maybe they are just seasonal.  Most of the birds that I colored in the past were blue so this was a nice change. 

The face is actually the best part for enjoyment.  I love to give extra details and to brighten the eyes so this shows a comparison of a before and after.  The original eyes were used for the pupils and I built up the rest around them with Copics.  

I’d like to share this in the following challenges . . .

Mr. Frosty

I found some mustache brads at the craft store and thought they would be cute to use on a project.  They’ve been sitting on my desk for a while until I found the right one . . . Mr. Frosty from Wee Stamps was perfect.  I colored the image as normal.  Then when colored in the drop shadows, I positioned the mustache and added a shadow there too.  Then I poked a hole in the paper and added the brad. 

I like how it turned out and I like the end result of coloring.  It was a fun image to color.  :).  Of course, I made a card from it, however, I don’t like how it turned out.  I think it was the pattern paper or it might be because strayed from my default layout.  Either way, I’m sure it’s just me and that any anyone would be happy to receive the card this season. 


Some projects just take longer than others and this one is one of those.  I started this long before Halloween but decided I needed to finished it even though Halloween was over. I have another project that I started for Thanksgiving too but it will be late as well.  LOL  Anyway, this is Hazel from Wee Stamps in rubber from Whimsy Stamps and also available at Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  I went with a light gray color to stamp her in then used greens and blacks to color her.  For a splash of color I used the orange as a backdrop.  Finally I did some doodles as a border and made it into a card.   Hope you like her even though she’s a tad out of season… buy hay… I guess witches need to live through the seasons too.  ;D
