Whimsy Fox Mom

There is a new Β Whimsy Stamps release out today. Can you believe it’s July already?! I decided to dig out my pencils for this one and I also mirrored the stamp so the fox is facing right instead of left. This is my first attempt at fur using pencils, so although I’m not entirely happy with it I also know I should have semi-reasonable expectations, hahaha. I think it turned out alright, to be honest! The stamp is called Fox Mom.

I kept the card mostly simple, but added a cluster of die cuts from various paper scraps I had laying about. A few enamel dots and a sentiment also from Whimsy Stamps which I coloured digitally to match the scraps of paper.

Colouring Video: Whimsy Jayden Farm Break

I have a new video for you today. Whimsy Stamps was hosting a virtual retreat on Facebook as their actual retreat had to be cancelled because of the current situation and that’s what this video was made for. There were plenty of games, freebies and videos available. You can see my colouring video below. The stamp is called Jayden Farm Break is now available to purchase at Whimsy Stamps.

In this video I will be colouring up all the elements from the girl to the fields in the background. I had planned to do an audio with it, but it’s been one of those days where nothing goes to plan, so in the end I just gave up! I do plan to have an audio for my next video though! Anyway, here’s the video:

Whimsy Wee Dolly

June is here and that means not only summer is official here, but also the new release over at Whimsy Stamps. For my release project this month I’ve coloured up Dolly from the Wee Stamps collection using Copic Marker. The text is in Norwegian and means “I greatly appreciate you”.

I’ve done similar to what I did on the card a few days ago, but instead of die cutting the background paper I’ve instead die cut the panel I’ve coloured up and made a long card instead of a tall one. It’s great how you can use one die to get different looking cards. You can find the border die here. And if you like to jazz up the text using some big letters, Whimsy has a great set here.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E02, E13, E15, (hair) E08, E18, E49, E97, (green) G21, G24, G94, G99, (pink) RV10, RV17, RV32, RV34, (white) N0, N1, N3

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!
