Whale Of A Time slider card

Hi People! This is a another slider card I made (yes, I am on a roll with sliders lately!) with Whale of a Time clear set, Kinetic Curved Hills and Kinetic Curved Basics.  As well I used Grass and Cloud Edger die and Stitched Cloud die sets, and the little starfish from Straight Waves die set. 
Here is a video of the card in action: 
I coloured the whale and dolphin with Copics.  Here is your close-up:

Lamb Slides

I've been having a lot of fun with making cards with moving parts lately.  Whimsy has come up with a whole range of Kinetic Dies that let you add movement to your images on your cards.  They are specially designed so that the mechanism can remain hidden and you only see the cute images, not the tabs and slots. This card I made has a tab (bottom left, right after the end of the fence) that when you pull it, the lamb appears to slide down the hill.  I put some flowers under the lamb that get revealed when you slide it down.  They are so much fun to make and a lot of fun for the recipient to toy with! 
On this particular card I used my new rubber image, "Lamb Slides", a couple of sheets from my digital pack Flourishing Blooms,  and the dies: Stitched Clouds, Kinetic Curved Hills,  and Kinetic Curved Basics.   Jennifer Dove of Whimsy has a tutorial for using the No-see kinetic dies, and it can be found on the same page as the Kinetic Curved Basics page HERE (scroll down half way to see the video)
I coloured Lamb Slides using Copics.

This was such a fun card to make! Thanks for looking!

Cute From Any Angle

Here is Cute From Any Angle in a spinner card! I haven't made one of these in awhile, but this image lends itself to using it in this fashion. You just wind it up and fold it closed. Then when the recipient opens the card, the bunny spins around super fast. (much like by-gone days on the playground, when I used to twist the swings up and then let go!) So fun!
I also used a page from my new digital paper pack, Rustic Wood and Brick papers. Also used a die from the "Quick Strips" set. I love that one for sentiments!
I coloured the image with Copics and hand drew the star pattern.
Thanks so much for looking!

Bunny Mom

Well it's been awhile! Actually, there's been 2 new grand babies, so that's why I haven't been around!
To kick off my come-back, here is "Bunny Mom", a brand new red rubber image I did for Whimsy Stamps.  I also used Stitched Border Die Trio, the sentiment from Penguin's Cake, new Rustic Wood and Bricks paper (digital) and Leaf Foliage die 1.  I coloured the image with Copics. 
Thanks so much for looking!

Jungle Bells 1

Hi everyone! This is Jungle Bells 1, an image I did for Whimsy a few years ago. I have a video which I did on the Whimsy Facebook page today, showing how I coloured this guy's hat! I happened to use Copic markers. If you want to go check it out and watch me colour, here's your link to the Whimsy page on FB, and just scroll down until you see my face and the video! The following few days are going to be really fun because it is Whimsy's 10th birthday, and Denise of Whimsy Stamps has a lot of games for you to play and lots of chances to win Whimsy goodies! So head on over there to find out all the ways you can enter! I even have a little thing going on - if you comment on the video I made, you are entered to win a draw for this card! I will send it to one randomly chosen commenter. So head on over to FB to enter!

Here is "Fawn", a digital image I did for Whimsy Stamps! It does triple duty as a spring image, new baby image, or as I have shown here, a Christmas image! It's one of Santa's new reindeer born at the North Pole, and its lying on a bed of sparkling snow!  Well, a girl can imagine, right?  This is actually another shaker card made with the help of Whimsy's Shaker Maker Combo Die set.  I used crushed glass glitter for the "snow" inside the shaker portion. Paper was from my stash.  I painted the rim of the circle and the outer edges of the designer sheet with a gold paint for some added shine. 
I coloured "Fawn" with Copic markers. The sentiment is from an older retired set of red rubber at Whimsy Stamps. Here is your close-up of the coloured image:

Penguin Elves At The Workshop

Hi Peeps! I've got Penguin Elves At The Workshop on display for you today! Looks like they're kinda busy, as I'm sure they are at this time of year (snort!)
This is a digital image I did for Whimsy Stamps, and so is the green background paper.  It's a sheet from the "Christmas Red, Gold and Green" pack.  I had a lot of fun drawing the floor and wreath background to make it look like they were in a room.  The elves are a combination of Copic markers and coloured pencil, and the floor/wreath/wall background is just Copics. 
Here is a closeup:
The beautiful chipboard sentiments are from Make It Crafty, and Whimsy Stamps sells them for those on the Western Hemisphere. I coloured them with a red Copic marker.

Christmas Unicorn

I'm on a shaker-card-roll right now and I love it! Here I have a card using the Shaker Maker Combo Set from Whimsy, as well as my Christmas Unicorn, which is a digital image just released this month.  Also, I used a sheet from my Christmas Traditions digital paper!  I filled the shaker with crushed glass glitter for a sparkly snowy look.  I also glued some to the star and the bell in the image. 
The sentiments are chipboard elements by Make It Crafty which are also sold at Whimsy Stamps!
I coloured the image, sky and snow using Copic markers, and used a white gel pen and a snow writer for the snow drops coming down in the sky. 
Here is your close-up (the snow-writer was still wet so you can see the bubbles in the blobs): 
Copics used: 
Unicorn white: 
YR30, B0000, BV20, 23, E40, W1, C0
Snow: B60, 63, B0000, 000, 00, BG70, BV0000, BG0000, YR30, BV20, B93, 95
Reds: R14, 17, 29, 59
Sky: B01, BG11
Gold star, bell and horn: Y00, YR12, 14, 27
Thanks so much for coming by today!

Penguin and Reindeer Friends

Hello everyone! How are you all doing!? I have another Christmas card to share today, this one with my rubber image, "Penguin and Reindeer Friends" from Whimsy Stamps. I coloured it with a combination of Copics and prismacolour pencils on the image, and just Copics on the background/ground/trees. 
The two designer papers are from two of my sets at Whimsy: Christmas Red Gold and Green, and I Dream In Christmas. 
Also used on this card is some gorgeous and fun to use Chipboard by Make It Crafty, and also available at Whimsy Stamps!
I used some glitter glue and some crushed glass glitter on the bells.  Looks a little but much in the photo, but more subtle and sparkly in real life (isn't that the card crafter's bane - trying to photograph glitter!)
Thanks for looking!

Seal In Water

I think I found a new passion.  Shaker cards.  GWASH! I love making them! For this one I used my new digital image, "Seal In Water".  I coloured it with Copics and sponged some blue inks around the outer edges.  I made the snowflake paper with a gorgeous Snow Flurry stamp from Whimsy Stamps. I stamped in white ink and embossed with white powder. The poinsettia is also a Whimsy product, "Build A Poinsettia".  The Sentiment is from the new clear set, "Christmas Tidings".  I filled in the shaker part with a few little sparkly stars, and a spoonful of crushed glass glitter.  Hint: use a clean un-used dryer sheet and put all the stuff for the shaker part into it, and massage it with the dryer sheet.  Or else it sticks to the acetate and doesn't even fall down to the bottom.  Jussaying! Thanks for looking!

Christmas Tidings

I'm so excited about this - this is my first shaker card! I love love love this process and the end result too! I will be doing more of these; I think I'm hooked! The Shaker Maker Combo Die Set was what I used to make the window and some of the little shaker stuff.  So cool! 
This image and sentiment is from my new set at Whimsy called "Christmas Tidings Clear Set".  I also used the Making Waves stencil with some Oxide inks - oh how fun was that! I want more stencils, it is just too easy and fast to make your own beautiful background paper with them! 
I coloured the little seahorse with Copic markers. 
Thanks so much for looking!
