Birthday Wishes using Painted Sayings

Hi Whimsy friends. I'm happy to be posting on the Whimsy blog today. I have a card to share that I made with the fabulous Painted Sayings stamp set from Whimsy's clear stamp line.  

I started by taking a piece of smooth white card stock and then blended several colors of Distress Inks on it for a rainbow effect. I then spritzed my panel quite liberally with water to let the colors really flow into one another.  I then stamped the gorgeous sentiments.  I then decided to add some stitching detail to both the top and bottom of the rainbow panel. I did this using the Stitched Border Die Trio set from Whimsy Stamps.  Some sparkling clear sequins finish off the card along with rounded corners on the bottom. 

New Videos and a Sneak Peek

Hello Friends,

Happy Friday! We have 2 new videos to share with you today. One is from DT Jeanette using our February release "Frog Prince" rubber stamp illustrated by Sylvia Zet. This stamp and many others will be available on Wednesday, February 10th. This tutorial is a Copic coloration and dot technique.

Our second video is from Special Guest Tammy Louise. She has used a few of Whimsy's dies and clear and rubber stamp sets to create a fun masculine Valentine card.

Little Valentine Gift Bag

Hi Whimsy Fans, it's Ellie here today sharing one of my new Whimsy creations with you. I hope you like it!

I am guilty of mostly making cards, so to change things up a bit, I decided to make a cute little gift bag that will hold a little Valentine's surprise.
It was super easy to make and turned out really cute. I think the recipient is going to love it :-)

I followed this tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers.
Then simply decorated it with some pretty desginer paper and dies. 
The cute image  has been colored with copic markers. I finished it off by adding some little flowers and tiny pearls. 
You can find the Whimsy products I used here:
Thanks so much for visiting!
Hope you're having a wonderful day!!

'Paint in color'

Hello everyone, Cindy here today. Hope you are excited the weekend is here, I know I am!!  Today I want to share a card I made using the new Crissy Armstrong stamp 'Doggie Artiste'

Oh my, I had so much fun making this card. I used the Clearly Whimsy stamp set 'Stitched Alphabet Upper' for the sentiment. Colored the image with my Copic markers and had some fun with watercolors to do the background. 

Hope you get to be creative this weekend!! Thank you for stopping by!!
