Shark bait ooh ah ah

 Hi Friends, 

Told ya' I'd be back with more whimsy love this month.  Ummm, nope these are not Sand "Shahks".  These are those big momma jammas that if you start hearing the music.....you is in big trouble!


However, these goofy fellers are just happy to wish anyone a happy anything!  

Can you believe this card took me 40 minutes to make from start to finish with no plan in mind.  I stamped the goofy trio and started coloring and before I knew it I was done.  Whimsy has it all right down to the embellishments!

I loved this so much I made it into a hanging sign. That's why you see the string if you were wondering.

Ok, are you ready for the color palette it's an easy one and you can easily follow it and color your very own.

Back with my Gnomies

Hello Friends, 

First a little housekeeping with Blogger.  I have switched to a new email service
 
Click on the logo
If you are using Feedburner it no longer works.  I recommend this service.



Halfway through the week and has it been a busy one.  Today I am so very excited to share with you a new release from Whimsy Stamps.  Gnomes Lift You Up paired with the new release Slimline Dies Cornered Rectangle.  


Before I talk about the card.  I want to tell you I feel is so awesome about how Whimsy operates.  Their releases are awesome because there are 3 a month! WOW, HOW COOL IS THIS!  They actually have their customer's budget first.  I mean, let's get real.  We want it all but, the fact is we can't have it all.  But we can afford a little at a time.  That is why the 3 releases a month are fabulous.  Second, they are really on top of their shipping.  When I order something it is here so fast.

Ok, now onto the card.  I had a blast coloring this adorable stamp by Chrissy, her gnomes are so adorable. When I colored this stamp I took my time and it was therapy. I used so many colors and tried something new on the tree leaves.  Instead of dotting I used the side of my brush nib, laid it down, and pulled it up.  But I made them very small.  It went faster than dotting it with the tip of my nib.

Ok So I have an updated version of my Color Palette and it is Instagram Friendly.  Now it is broken down step by step and named for what the color combo goes to.  It also has the product used on it. 

I would love for you all to share it, pin it, where ever you can. 


Well, I hope you enjoyed today's share.  I will be back with another very special Whimsy Post this month with the next release.

Bear and Bunny Digital Stamp by Rachelle Anne Miller Creative Studios



Hello,  I am back with Rachelle Anne Miller Studios today, helping to promote stamps that have been in her shop.  Maybe you have seen them and maybe not.  

I had a little fun with this cutie, Bear & Bunny Digital, I used Copics to color the image and add shadows for the grass.  Then I felt like using oxide inks to finish the grass and do the sky.  I used 2 different greens and 2 different blues.  And it hit me!  I made the clouds with a q-tip and Lawn FawnPigment ink pad, Yeti!  Oh, yeah....that was totally awesome.  Oh, I am for sure someone somewhere has done this before but, I've not seen it.

instead of flowers, I used sequins with red rhinestones.  Added embroidery floss and that was it.  I wanted to keep it clean and simple!  This was an easy and fast card to make and a lot of fun.

I will see you again soon, I do have cards that I need to show you.  Enjoy your coloring! xoxo

Im in the mood to go snorkeling! AnyFin is Possible


Happy Labor Day my friends!  As we observe this day for our fallen soldiers we also get together with friends, family, and neighbors to bring in the summer months.  BBQ, open the pools enjoys the spring labor in our flower gardens, etc.

I have snorkeling on the brain after making this fun slimline card for Sweet Sentiment Stamps.  The stamp set is called AnyFin is Possible.  
The background is ink refills on glossy paper sprayed with alcohol and I used my compressor to move the ink around.

I colored all of the fishies and fussy cut them.  I didn't fussy cut them very well, but I got the job done.  LOL. 

For the top layer, I cut 3 different size circles.  I was going for an aquarium look.  It was so plain for me.  So I colored all along the outside edge.  Took a piece of fabric with alcohol and added texture.  Then I dotted with the same colors I colored the edges with to add even more texture. A few bubbles and I was done.  It was fun to make.  I took my time with this one doing it over a couple of days. 

I will be back tomorrow to share another design!  Enjoy your holiday and your coloring. xoxo

Dinosaurs and Friends by Rachelle Ann Miller Digital Stamps

Hello Friends!  I am really excited to be a guest designer 

for Rachelle Ann Miller Stamps this month. 


 It's preview week!  And Rachelle sent me this adorable Dianasaurs and Friends Digi to color up.  Did I have fun.  Well, coloring any of her images would be fun.  As a matter of fact, I have a few on my desk just waiting for me to get at them.

So here is how it goes with RAM Digital Stamps.  The DT drives you mad with previews and on the 13th "BAM!" they are in the store and ready to Purchase!  Hey, that is only 2 sleeps...depending on what side of the pond you are I suppose. 

So in the meantime jump on over to the RAM Digital Stamps Facebook Group and check out what is coming.  So exciting I can hardly stand it. 

In the meantime here is the color combo I used for this card 


I will be back soon to make you spend your money...LOL!  Have a great rest of the week.

Into The Wind by Sweet Sentiment Stamps

 Oh my gosh!  It has been so long, hasn't it?  

Yes I retired...and I got bored, like, really bored!!   So I am back to coloring and posting!

Today I bring you a card using Sweet Sentiment Stamps, Into The Wind.  What a beautiful set this is.  It can be used for many different occasions as it comes with 5 sentiments and 2 grass stamps as well as 2 flower stamps.  You really need to check this out~

In addition please join the Sweet Sentiment and Friends Group on Facebook.  Jammie is always doing coloring lives on the group and you can learn a lot from her. 


I have to admit....for a come back I should have started with something, well a bit less detailed.  But if you know me at all once I get a vision for a stamp, I go for it!  And if it isn't perfect that is ok!  No one is perfect.  I am starting again after a year so I have to practice, practice practice!  Just like someone who is  new to Copic Markers.  Of course you are not going to buy markers and do this piece.  But you are going to do something and the more you do it the better you will get.  Will you ever be perfect. Nope! 
And, please do not try to be.  That is too much pressure.  Do not put that kind of hurt in your soul.

Most importantly do not listen to the negative nellies out there.  You must ignore them.  They are just miserable with themselves and jealous that you are having fun and have the guts to put yourself out there.  As share on Stamp Junkies.  

Well, I guess I should give you the colors I used huh?


I would love for you to Pin This!
Until Next Time!

Faery Ink, Sneak Peak for Patron Members!


Patron Members here is your sneak peek for November's Release!

But you only get to see one of the 5 new images. Mean! I know right!  Well giddy-up because you are going to love November!

Drum roll, please... I give you Chibi Holiday Dress Up


I chose to make this into a big present tag.  It is 4 1/4 x 5ish. 
There were several things about this image that made me choose it.  Anime is not so easy for me on faces. So I wanted to practice that.  The hair!  It jumped at me.  The tree!!!!!  Oh, wait till you see the image.  It gave me the opportunity to try something completely new.  You see, I added all the branches and tensile on the tree.  It is actually an easy image to color but I have a tendency to make things harder than they should be.

Are you a member of Faery Ink's Patron Program? It is a great value!              
So much so that you actually get your money back and more in savings!

Here is how it works:


Sign up Here  You can only get the Patron Images there and look at the discount you get on the Etsy Store!  Amanda is so generous


Well, This is my first post for Faery Ink and, I hope to be sticking around for a while!  Next post I will have my watermark.  Promise.

Yes, Yes, Yes Another Free Class!!!!!!! RIGHT ON!


Wait, am I doing another free online class?

Why yes I am!  Meet Courageous Carl, the sweetest lion you will ever meet and color.  Don't be intimidated.  Oh no, this class is actually not as hard as you think. 



MAKING THE CARD INSTRUCTIONS:  EASY

1. Trim the colored image 1/8" all the way around  2.  With Whimsy oval die set below take the largest oval and die cut (centered) around carl.  3. Cut a violet paper to match the flower that is 1/16" shorter all the way around your card base which is 4.25" wide and 5.5 tall. 4. use adhesive of your choice to lay down the violet paper then the outside of the colored image.  Use pop up foam tape to adhere to the oval of carl.  I used the stips die set and put a sentiment I've had for years from MFT.  Wasn't that easy?

Hello Butterfly,


Thank you Whimsy Stamps for having me as a Guest Design this month.  I really enjoyed playing once again with all of your wonderful products.


This card was fun and easy, as it has two of my favorite things.  Flowers and butterflies.  Did you know Whimsy has 3 sets of flowers that you can use with foamira or paper to color and shape as you wish?  There are also now 2 wonderful sets of butterflies.  Here I used a set from Jennifer Dove. And, don't you just love this Whimsy Paper!  I sure do!  

A quick and easy card for someone sweet.
Here are the products I used:  All are from Whimsy Stamps:


Just in case here is another great set

Who doesn't want a cow?

I am really excited to be a guest with Whimsy Stamps this month...like sooooooooo excited!  I love Whimsy Stamps.

For my first project this month I chose to put together a shadow box with all kinds of Whimsy goodies.


I mean seriously,  How cute are these cows?  I would hug them.  This is a great clear set with 3 images and many great sentiments!  My favorite is you can make, "Love You HEIFER."  If my husband gave me a card with a cow and this sentiment I would absolutely die laughing!!!!!!  You see, I always call him my Bull in a china store.  Let's put it this way, we have 3 glasses left in the house to drink out of. lol. 


Everything you see here you can get from the Whimsy Stamp store.  Except I made the box to fit the die front.  Oh and this is not Whimsy paper.

The cows are colored with C0, 1, 3 on the body, and 7, 5, 3 in the dark areas.
Moon is W0, 1, 3 and I cut out a circle from Whimsy to trace the moon - didn't see that coming did you?
The sky is B91, 93, 95, 97, 99, V6, 5.  It doesn't show well in the photo, sorry.

I will be back on the 25th for one more project!


Here are the products I used:
