Did you see the colouring video I made back at the end of February? You can view it on YouTube here and the blog post can be found here. I used Prismacolor pencils for colouring up the Altenew Statement Flowers and now I’ve finally completed the card as well. I cut it out by hand and added some foam tape to the back of it, sprayed some black ink on a kraft card base, doodled a little in the corners and used their Hello die and enamel dots to finish off the card.
One of the great advantages of digital stamps is how you can split and resize and remove things to fit your project. That is what I’ve decided on this time. All of these penguins are part of the same digital stamp. The stamp is part of the new digital release at Whimsy Stamps and is called Penguins Build a Snowman.
I opted for a slimline card this time using the great slimline film strip die. I digitally cut the digital stamp into the sections I wanted and resized them accordingly so each would fit in one of the frames. Then I erased the lines that was a part of the other sections of the original image to make them look like stand alone stamps.

Another simple Christmas card with a little penguin. This time the penguin is from MFT Stamps and I’ve coloured it up with Copic. I did a funky cut of a paper by Panduro and glued some big snowflakes on top of it. A chipboard sentiment with a printed sentiment (because I have somehow managed to misplace my heating gun…) as well as some sequins finished off the card.
This stamp must be one of the stamps I have used the most. It is by Stamping Bella. I’ve used washi tape to make the background behind the girls. It is by Altenew. The stamp is coloured up with Copic Marker and I added the glitter effect to the white dress, but went without the white gelly roll for the red dress for a bit of a different effect. I then cut the panel to the right size and drew in a border around the edge.
The sentiment is in Norwegian and means “to a wonderful friend like you” and is by Mathia Design.
My second card as a part of the Whimsy Stamps DT features this adorable little girl, Devina, and I’ve made a clean and simple card. That is mostly because I will probably make about half my cards as CAS and the other half as layered, so may as well do that from the start.
I’ve used some washi tape and Norwegian sentiments from Huldra Designstudio. I’ve drawn in a little border and other little bits, just for fun. And as always you can find the list of copics I’ve used below the photo.
