Whimsy Princess with her cake

Whimsy Stamps have several new digital stamps out each month. One of the ones that were released this month is this cute little one with her cake. Her name is Princess and she’s a part of the CC Designs collection.

I used a die cut and some chip board along with a Norwegian text stamp. You can get the same effect on yours if you use one of the border dies in this set as well as this alphabet die set.

Whimsy party pig

Apparently it’s May. Not entirely sure how that happened, but hey it’s mean there’s a new release up at Whimsy Stamps! I used Crissy’s party pig for my card and can you see what I’ve done different?

Yup. Pencils. Pencils on kraft. Until about a week ago I hadn’t coloured up with pencils before, not even had a try I was unhappy with. I simply hadn’t tried. I’d been told it was difficult, so I’ve just put it up and stuck with my Copics even if I got my pencils as a gift well over three years ago! I finally tried them and they are so much fun! I love the effect I get from using them on kraft paper as well. My Prismacolor pencils are definitely going to be used regularly!

Colouring video: Spring Gnome

It is time for the second video that I uploaded to YouTube yesterday. It is a part of the Whimsy Stamps monthly tutorial for us digital design team members. This month it was my turn. Here I have coloured up the cool spring gnome. The stamp is printed at approximately the size 2 1/2″ by 2 1/2″ on Copic colouring paper. There is no audio on this video.

The colours I’ve used for this video are: (hat) B21, B23, B26, B39, (grass) YG01, YG23, YG17, YG99, (beard and flower white) N1, N3, (bee and centre flower yellow) N5, N7, N9, B21, B23, Y13, Y17, YR16, E08, (skin) E00, E02, E13, E15

Here you can see the finished card I made with this coloured image:

Colouring video: Jillian and Friends

I have made a video using one of the Whimsy Stamps images. (Actually I’ve made two, and they are both up on YouTube, but I will link the other one here tomorrow.) This time I’ve coloured up the girl from the Jillian and Friends stamp set. Here I will also be colouring in some grass under the girl’s feet as you can se below.

The stamp is printed at approximately 2 1/4″ by 3 1/4″ on Copic colouring paper and I have finally had time to do audio to a video again so I will be talking you through my colouring of this image.

The colours used for this video are: (skin) E000, E00, E02, E13, E15, (hair) E21, E25, E27, E29, (grass) YG01, YG23, YG17, YG97, (yellow) Y13, Y17, YR16, E08, (blue) B21, B23, B26, B39, (white) N0, N1, N3

I have also made a card using this image. You can see it below:

Whimsy Jillian

There is a new digital release at Whimsy Stamps because apparently it’s April already. How that happened, I’m not entirely sure… I’ve coloured Jillian and her little bird friend up with Copics as usual. She is a fun one to colour up, even if the hair tends to take a bit of time.

I’ve kept the card simple by using paper from Maja Design and Reprint as well as Make it Crafty chipboard and Rayher butterflies.
