'Paint in Color'

Hello everyone!! Hope your week was a good one. Mine seems to fly by anymore. I finally finished painting the big wall of cabinets in the family-room, boy am I glad it is done. Next is to do the top of the beverage area in the same room. I will be so happy when this HUGE project gets finished!!!!

Anyway....Today I want to share a card I made using a stamp from the new release at Whimsy Stamps from Crissy Armstrong called 'Doggie Artiste'.

I used a Clearly Whimsy set for the sentiment called 'Stitched Alphabet Upper'. I colored the image with my Copic Markers and had some fun with watercolor for the background. I was going to color in the sentiment but I liked it the way it was and then having him doing a little coloring....:)

This is a super fun stamp, I will be using him a lot!!

Copics used:

E31, E35, E37
E43, E44, E49
BG70, BG72, BG78
R35, R37
YR21, YR23
W4, W5, W7
C00, C0, C2

Hope you like my card! Have a great weekend!
Thanks for stopping by!

'Be Mine'

Hello everyone! Hope you are staying warm. I think it is really starting to feel like winter around!  

Today is the start of a new challenge over at the Whimsy Inspires Challenge Blog and the theme is:

"with love"

I want to share a gift card holder I made using a stamp from the January New Release at Whimsy Stamps by Crissy Armstrong 'Doggie Skywriter'.

I used paper bag from my local craft store, did some gluing to create a pocket and decorated it. I colored the image with my colored pencils.

The washi tape on the top edge helps to make sure the gift card stays in but it is nice and snug on it's own. 

These are super fun and fast to make. I did quite a few of them at Christmas for my kids teachers. 

Here is a link to the Challenge blog, hope you will join in, you could win a gift certificate for the Whimsy Store. 

Have a wonderful week!!
Hugs, Cindy

Whimsy Stamps January Release Final Day!

Hello everyone! Hope you are enjoying all the inspiration for the January Release!! I know I sure am!!  Today is the final day with a lot more great inspiration!!

Today I want to share some things I made using 'Teddy Best Friend' from the new artist Lee Holland. OMGosh these new stamps are soooooo darn cute, LOVE them all!! 

So I colored these cuties with a new medium for me....Inktense Pencils. Boy oh boy do I love these!!!  I had an empty Altoids tin that I wanted to alter. I spray painted it and decorated it, there are some chocolates in the box as well, I forgot to take some pictures.

The sentiment comes with the stamp set. 

Next was this other cutie. I covered the chocolates with some paper and made this goodie bag.  The 'Scripted Love' word die is new from Whimsy Stamps.  

I had lots of fun making these!!
