Whimsy Stamps Inspiration - January Week 4

Hi there everyone 💜

Today I'm sharing another of our January releases, this time it's one of our fabulous digital papers. I've used the same paper in both cards to show how it can be used, and it belongs to a collection called 'Hearts A Flutter'. The collection contains 6 different 6" x 6" papers, all with a heart theme.

All the links to the specific Whimsy products can be found below and the link to the general store is here.



Here's What I Did
Using my graphics software I imported the digital papers and printed it directly onto some good quality smooth printer paper. On both cards I die cut the paper to size and give it a scalloped border. The paper was attached to the card front.

Card 1 - I die cut 3 hearts in different sizes using pink and red card, and then vellum. The hearts were laid flat over each other apart from the smallest which was raised up using foam pads. A computer generated sentiment was added to the card from along with a few gems, pearls and sequins.

Card 2 - a square was cut from white card and the centre was cut out using a slightly smaller square die to create a frame, this was added to the card front. Using a 'love' die from my own stash I cut it out from white card 4 times. The die cuts were gluing on top of each other to create a stack and added to the frame.  The word 'love' was cut again from red card, and the hearts that were cut out were glued inside the heart aperture on the card front. To complete the card, hearts that were the waste from the white 'love' die cut were added to the card front.

Here's What I Used
New Release Digital Paper: Hearts A Flutter'

Other: 6" x 6" White Scalloped Card Blank,  6" x 6" White Wavy Edge Card Blank, Red Card, Deep Red Card, Pink Card, White Card, Vellum, Square Layering Die (Tonic), Love Die (The Works), Heart Dies (Sizzix), Gems, Sequins, Mini Pearls, Mini Banner (Lawn Fawn)

Whimsy Stamps Inspiration - January Week 3

Hi there everyone 💜

Today I'd love to share another of the new release digital stamps which is also available in rubber cling. The cute boy angel digi stamp is called 'Angel Cody' and he is by Sylvia Zet.  Both versions of the stamp can be found in Whimsy Stamps online store; I have supplied the links to both in the shopping list below.

I coloured the cute little boys angel with pencils on brown colouring card, and added glitter to their wings and the little stars. Please note, that the sentiment was computer generated, as were the extra stars and clouds. All the links to the specific Whimsy products can be found below and the link to the general store is here.



Here's What I Did
Using my graphics software I imported 2 of the cute little angel then resized both of them and flipped one of them. I created a little scene with the 2 angels along with a few of my own stars and clouds; lastly I added my own computer generated sentiment. The completed scene was printed directly onto Neenah Desert Storm card, and coloured with both Prismacolour and Caran D'ache pencils.

Before adding any colour pencil work to the printed out design, I lightly added white pencil over most of the images, taking care not to go over the black lines. The reason for the white pencil is because it helps to made the final colours pop. Layers of coloured pencil were then lightly added over the top of the white building up areas of light and dark areas on the image. The completed scene  was then die cut into a rectangle.

A rectangle was cut from blue card and added to the card front, and the finished scene was attached directly on top.  To complete the card glitter was added to the stars and angel's wings.

Whimsy Stamps Inspiration - January 2019 New Release

Happy New Year guys 💜

I hope you all had a fabulous New Year, I know I did. :)

Today, it's my turn to share one of the brilliant new release digital stamps and papers from Whimsy Stamps. The sweet fairy stamp is called 'Spread Love' and the digital paper is called 'Hearts A Flutter' perfect for Valentine's Day or an anniversary. I coloured her with Copics and glitter up her wings and hearts. Nb. The sentiment is from my own stash. x

Here's What I Did
Firstly I printed the digital paper onto a sheet of smooth white paper, and after trimming it down it was attached to the front of a 6" x 6" white card blank.

Using my graphics software I imported the pretty fairy image, then resized and printed her directly onto Neenah card. I coloured the images with Copic pens and die cut it into a circle. Glitter was added to the fairy's wings and her scattered hearts. A sentiment (from my own stash) was stamped beneath the fairy using black ink.

The coloured image was attached to a fancy die cut frame cut from deep pink card. The topper was then added to the card front using foam pads. To complete the card pink gems were added to the top and bottom of the card.
