Stained Glass Village


I know I say it every time that I share a post with one of our Stained Glass rubber stamps but I just love coloring these! They remind me of paint by numbers and they make Copic marker coloring that much easier too! 
All you need to do is stamp the image, color it and matte it onto a card base, you don't need embellishments or anything. Today I'm using the Stained Glass Village stamp and you can check out all the entire Stained Glass rubber stamp collection HERE.

Technically Glamour Dust glitter (my fav glitter) would be considered an embellishment but still, these stamps are soooo easy!

GingerSnaps Over Christmas Carols

I'm right there with you Gingy...hang in there it's almost over until next year - lol!

This card was really fun to make! For the background I used the peppermint candy image from the GingerSnaps clear stamp set and the Brushed Stripes rubber background.

I stamped all the GingerSnaps images and colored them with Copic markers. Then added some highlights to the candies with a white gel pen.

The sentiment was stamped and then cut out using one of the Card Builder Windows dies. I popped it up on foam tape for some dimension.

Poor Gingy, he'll be glad when it's over. Be sure to check out all the other fun sentiments included in the GingerSnaps clear stamp set from Whimsy Stamps.

Stained Glass Christmas Tree MERRY CHRISTMAS Everyone!

Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas I hope it's a blessed holiday for all. And on this special day I'm sharing an easy card using the Stained Glass Christmas Tree rubber stamp.

The Stained Glass rubber stamp collection from Whimsy Stamps makes coloring super easy, it's almost like color by numbers - lol. You just stamp the image and color with your favorite color medium then matte it onto a card base. You really don't need embellishments or anything they are so pretty just on their own. 

My favorite coloring medium is usually watercolor but for the Stained Glass stamps I find that I always use my Copic markers

And since this is a Christmas card I thought I'd add a pretty layer of silver glitter paper to make it even more festive.

Holly Jolly My Butt

Boy, Santa sure looks thrilled about his job doesn't he?! 

I stamped the Holly Jolly My Butt images with Memento black ink so I could safely color them with Copic markers. It's important to use the right kind of ink with copic markers or you can ruin them.

The Christmas tree branches in this set are pretty cool, you can "build" your tree however tall you'd like it to be and add the ornaments where you'd like too. And of course you have to have a couple of presents under the tree as well.

And last but not least I stamped the sentiment and cut it out with a retired word bubble die. Check out all the funny sentiments in the Holly Jolly My Butt set and give your friends and family some giggles when they receive their Christmas card from you.

Glory to God with Two Different Looks

I'm sharing with you today two totally different looks from the same Glory to God stamp set.

For my first card I stamped the main image onto watercolor paper then stamped the image a second time onto a sticky note, hand cut it out and masked it on top of the card image. 

Then I sponged on Tim Holtz Faded Jeans Distress Ink all around the edges. Once I had the sponging done I used plain water and a paintbrush to flick on some random water drops.

Once that was dry I removed the sticky note mask and used distress inks to watercolor the image.

When that was dry I heat embossed the sentiment with gold embossing powder and added some Glamour Dust glitter to the halos.

For my second card I simply stamped the Glory to God holy city with blue ink and the stars with silver Delicata ink.

I stamped the sentiment and added a clear rhinestone to the star for a little added shine.

So there you have it two totally different looks with the same Glory to God stamp set. 

Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Three Different Dash Away Ideas

All three of the of the projects I'm sharing with you today are using the Dash Away set which has been really popular. Right now it's sold out in the Whimsy store, but more will be in stock soon!

This CAS (clean and simple) card was super easy and there are zero embellishments so no worries about sending through the mail. I just used different color inks and matted onto a red card base and it was done. Soooo easy especially if you have lots of Christmas cards to make or need some quick last minute cards.

My next project was a little more involved but the Shaker Maker Glitter Globe die made it quick and easy too. Plus it's not only a Christmas card but it can be used as a Christmas ornament too. I love how all the Dash Away images work perfectly inside the Glitter Globe.

And my last card is another CAS card using the Dash Away set along with the You're My Jolly set. I used a glitter embossing powder on the main sentiment to make it sparkly. And the ribbon and green glitter paper are from a prior Paper Door kit. 

Keep a look out for new Paper Door kits coming out again starting January 10, 2019, we have lots of exciting things to share with you.

Have a GREAT day!

LAST CHANCE Retiring Whimsy Stamps Products

The New Year is fast approaching and Whimsy Stamps is retiring several products to make room for all the new goodies arriving in 2019. I'm sharing 3 new project in this post using retiring sets and at the bottom of this post I have links for you to peek at some of my favorite cards over the past couple of years of sets that are retiring on 12/31/18. 

There's a 30% off code to use at check out (WhimsyRetire30) that is good until 12/25/18 but the stock of retiring products is limited and once they're gone they're gone for good, so don't wait this is your LAST CHANCE to get them!

Here's a SUPER quick and easy, clean and simple birthday card for the zombie lover(s) in your life. 

I stamped the zombie from the "If I Only Had a Brain" (retiring on 12/31/18) stamp set multiple times across a white strip of card stock.  Then I stamped the ZOMBIES sentiment and matted the image onto a black base leaving a 1/4" edge on the top and bottom.

After I glued that to the front of a white card base I stamped the top and bottom sentiments.   Totally quick and easy AND I used only one stamp set, ink and paper.  Anyone can stamp it's...easy cheesy and FUN!

Here is another card I haven't posted yet with a retiring set called Angel Blessings. This sweet angel image is accompanied by several sentiments for all kinds of different occasions. 

I stamped her onto watercolor paper and used distress inks to water color. Then just hand cut her and the sentiments out and popped the angel up on foam tape for dimension.

For my last card I used the Holiday Occasions set, which is a great multi-occasion set for several holidays combined all into one set.

and for this card I used distress inks to water color my background. Then heat embossed the sentiment and ornament with white embossing powder. After, I just splattered on some plain water spots and used my paint brush with a more blue distress ink and filled in the ornament a little darker. Then cut it out with the Stitched Rectangle die and popped it up on foam tape on a white card base. 

Here are some of my favorite cards I've made using products that are retiring on 12/31/18...

This card was not made by me but it's one of my favorites (by Sue Hastead) Oh Holy Night

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Whimsy Stamps you're 10 years old!! Certainly not an Old Fart, but definitely a milestone anniversary! As part of the celebration, we're doing an Instagram hop on 12/14/18 starting at 4pm (ET) and giving away fun prizes too.

Winners will be announced on the Whimsy Stamps IG page on 12/17/18.

Now onto my card...I stamped the Old Fart with Memento black ink and colored her in with Copic markers.

then I stamped her little fart cloud (tee hee) and also added a some chalk under her feet to ground her.

For the cool wavy edges on the card I used one of the Straight Edgers dies (the triple wave) and did that around all four edges. I love these dies, they give just the right amount of texture to almost any card and there are several patterns within the set so it's a great value too.

After I got the edges done I stamped the sentiments with purple ink and for the top one I just cut it out and popped it up with foam dots. Then glued onto a dark purple card base to complete my card.

Check out the celebration going on at Whimsy Stamps during our 10th Anniversary/Birthday, we hope you are enjoying all the fun and thank you for your business over the last 10 years...we appreciate it so very much!
