I often have a hard time tossing out the labels and like to put quick cards together. They’re always colored so nicely too! This is Holly from Whimsy Stamps and she’s adorable. I’m in the process of coloring her up on the side but had to put together this quick card.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
