Jr. Hatter Jacie

For those who joined the Whimsy Stamps World Card Making Day weekend event on Facebook have seen this already but for those that missed it, here’s a second chance. For my project, I chose to used Jr. Hatter Jacie and colored her with a Christmas themed background.

I wasn’t sure how I was going to finish this up but started with what I knew – the background and then Jr. Hatter Jacie. Once that was done, I settled on a design I was thinking about which was the close up of the fur trees and the Christmas Lights in the foreground. It was a good challenge for me and I can already see areas that I can improve for the next time. However, I wouldn’t have gotten to that point if I hadn’t jumped in and tried it out.

The ABUNDANT sentiment was borrowed from the Fill a Harvest Truck set. This project is shown as a speed coloring video on my YouTube channel – you can watch it below…

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!

Animal Tiles – Into the Woods

A new tiles set has been released and this one has a woodland theme. This is Animal Tiles – Into the Woods from Whimsy Stamps and I think it’s my favorite so far. These cute animals are great on their own but I chose to use them all together and fill up the card.

You’ve probably spotted them all already – the Animal Tiles – Into the Woods set includes a squirrel, hedgehog (or porcupine), mushrooms, bear, wolf, beaver, tree stump and a skunk. What’s your favorite? I love the bear and squirrel but the rest of them come in at a close second. The cuties are easy to color too and if you are looking for gift ideas – you can make tick-tack-toe or a game of memory.

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. ๐Ÿ˜€ 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!

Oops! Sorry from Whimsy Stamps

I’m so sorry! Sometimes that happens beyond my control but I feel terrible that I caused that. Would you forgive me? Hopefully this card says all of that. I’ve used the accessory stamp from the โ€œTin Games โ€“ Oops! Sorryโ€ set from Whimsy Stamps. Newly released! Then I combined it with a bucket load of other products to get some good use out of my stash. These are basics that I reuse often!

The base of the card was created with the Wonky Window 4 die to create a shaker card. This is a fun die and I was eager to fill in the three different spaces. I was able to use some of the many Sparkletz and Sprinkletz embellishments that I have in my stash. In the top window, I used the Up in the Clouds set and foam dots to create a 3D texture. This is an amazing die and I think a must have. I’m not sure why I didn’t splurge on it before but I’m so glad I did!
The center and lower panels were created into a shaker. In the center panel, I used the grass die from the No-See All Seasons Tree die as a stencil and then on top for dimension. On top of that, I positioned the tipped tulips from the Tin Games โ€“ Oops! Sorry set. Then in the lower panel, I stamped and colored the Dainty Daisies Background rubber stamp and place the Big Hugs Word die for the sentiment on top.

Oops! Sorry from Whimsy Stamps

For this project today, I wanted to use one of the accessory stamps from the โ€œTin Games โ€“ Oops! Sorryโ€ set from Whimsy Stamps. This one is the ice cream cone that has fallen over and started to melt. I thought it would be fun to continue the melting theme down through the sentiment and to the bottom of the card. Some days are just this type of day! I cam image this would be a perfect sorry card for a kid… or even a kid at heart.

To frame the set, I used the Get in Line border stamps to create borders around the edges. I didn’t want them orderly and straight so I angled them slightly different each time I stamped them. I chose to keep the card simple and mounted it on a card base. This one is good to go in the mail – nice and flat.
