The Grinch Steals Christmas

Hey Y'all!!!  You just have to LOVE him!!!!  “And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.”  I love making fun things out of glass blocks.  The Grinch just might be my favorite!

 

 

His face is vinyl cut with my Cricut.  Filled with lights, a feather boa and lime green tulle!  A Santa hat for good measure!

Wraith-Mae

Hey Y'all!!!  Oh my gosh!  I'm so thrilled to tell you that I'm a guest designer for Whimsy Stamps for the month of November!! Here's my first project….  I fell in love with Wraith-Mae the first time I laid eyes on her.  She's a digital stamp from Whimsy Stamps.  Her expression could mean so many things.  And my mom's middle name is Mae which makes her even more fun.  I decided for this card her expression would be one of disbelief.  Isn't that the way you feel when the first foot of snow falls each year?  Especially here in NC?  All the details for this card are below (including links).

 

I started by coloring Wraith-Mae with Copic markers.

COPIC MARKERS:

• Dress (BG49, BG13, BG11)

• Hair (N10, N9, N7, N5, N3)

• Skin (E04, E21, E11, E000, E0000)

• Eyes & Lips (B000, C0, R29)

.

I used Gina K. Glitz ‘Iridescent Glitter Gel' and the ‘Polka Dot‘ Stencil from Whimsy Stamps to create a fun snowy background.  This gel is just the coolest stuff and I love this stencil!

 

 

Next I created snowy hills using the Whimsy Stamps ‘Grass and Cloud Edger‘ Dies.  Cut four random sets of hills and covered them in snow with ‘Stickles Icicle'.  Popped them up with foam tape to give them some dimension.

 

The winter trees & lamp post are from Whimsy Stamps ‘Trees Assortment‘ and ‘Elvira Moonlighting‘ Die Sets.  Covered the trees with a little Icicle Stickles cuz its snowing outside.  Cut the lamp post from a little turquoise paper to match Wraith-Mae's dress.  The bottom is wrought iron.  Turned on the light with a little yellow card stock and added more snow with Icicle Stickles.

 

 

The sentiment “Make The Best Of It…” is from the ‘Dragon Water Fun‘ stamp set from Whimsy.   Cut it out with the ‘Quick Strips‘ die.  Looks like that's what Wraith-Mae is trying to do.  Baby it's COOOLD out there!!!  Snow falling.  Wind blowing.  Wintertime!!!

Happy!

Hey Y'all!!!  Happy Wednesday!!!  Last night I was just messing around, not really coloring, just messing.  Was looking at the pack of Rainbows paper from Whimsy Stamps and decided I'd just make a quick easy card.  I love bright colors and this paper is right up my alley.  All the details for this card are below (including links).

 

 

I started by just cutting various patterns in the ‘Rainbows 6 x 6 paper‘ from Whimsy Stamps in various widths.  Just winging it.  Used foam tape strips to adhere the strips to a piece of white paper at a fun angle.  Used the ‘Happy Large Word' die set from Whimsy and cut it from another pattern from ‘Rainbows‘.  Glued it to the top of the strips.  Added a few Gina K. Designs Dots for more fun.

Thanks Times Three

Hey Y'all!!!  Don't you always need to have a few Thank You cards ready to go.  I'm in love with this die.  It's the ‘Thanks Word With Shadow' die from Whimsy Stamps.  Use it in so many different ways.  All the details for this card are below (including links).

 

 

I started by using the Whimsy Stamps ‘Swiss Dots‘ die to cut two pieces of white paper.  One I used as a stencil for the background and one for the layering piece.  For the background I first made broad coloring swipes from side to side with the Distress Oxide Candied Apple & Twisted Citron Ink.  Next I used the same colors and the stencil to color circles on top of the swipes.  And of course I used the ‘Cotton Tail Blending Brushes‘ from The Rabbit Hole Designs that I love so much.  So smooth and effortless for Distress Oxide Inks.  I covered the second piece with Gina K. Glitz ‘Iridescent Glitter Gel' to create a little sparkle.

 

 

I layered the ‘Swiss Dots‘ onto the beautiful background.  Cut the three Thank You sentiments using the ‘Thanks Word with Shadow Die Set‘ from Whimsy Stamps.  Used two matching card stock colors from Stampin' UP!:  Pear Pizzazz and Calypso Coral.   Layered them at an angle.

Say Thanks With Dots

Hey Y'all!!!  What a great way to say Thanks!  All you need is this great ‘Thanks Word With Shadow' die from Whimsy Stamps.  Use it in so many different ways.  All the details for this card are below (including links).

 

 

I started by coloring a piece of white paper with Distress Oxides: Candied Apple, Fossilized Amber and Twisted Citron.  Swiped all the oxides on my glass mat, sprayed them with a little water, dipped and dried a few times.  What a beautiful background.  Looks a little like a sky might look full of color.

 

Next I used Whimsy Stamps ‘Swiss Dots‘ die to cut a 2nd piece of white paper.  Used the same Distress Oxides: Candied Apple & Twisted Citron to brush the color onto the paper.  Love the ‘Cotton Tail Blending Brushes‘ from The Rabbit Hole Designs.  So smooth and effortless for Distress Oxide Inks.

 

Layered the ‘Swiss Dots' onto the beautiful background.  Cut the Thank You sentiment using the ‘Thanks Word with Shadow Die Set‘ from Whimsy Stamps.  Used three matching card stock colors from Stampin' UP!:  Sea Soft Foam, Pear Pizzazz and Calypso Coral.

Halloween on a Postage Stamp

Hey Y'all!!!  The Postage Window A2 die from @whimsystamps is so fun.  Makes a dark and dreary Halloween card by using the ‘Haunted' 6 x 6 paper.  Bats & cats everywhere!  Only 3 more wake-ups!  All the details for this card are below (including links).

 

 

Started by using the ‘Postage Window A2‘ Die from Whimsy Stamps to cut one of the fun sheets from the ‘Haunted‘ 6 x 6 printed paper also from Whimsy.  Saved the outside frame for another day's project.   Used the ‘Postage Window A2' die to cut a plain white sheet of paper and inked up the frame in matching Distress Oxide Inks.  Walnut Stain, Fossilized Amber and Mustard Seed.

 

Cut the bats & cat from the ‘Build-a-Graveyard‘ die from Whimsy.  Cut a little piece of red card stock for the cat's eye.  The wooden ‘Halloween' sentiment is a retired piece I had.  Used Copic markers Y28 & Y26 to color the wood.

Haunted In The Graveyard

Hey Y'all!!!  Love this Vampire paper from @whimsystamps.  Has a mixture of everything: haunted houses, graveyards, bats and moons all bathed in red.  How dark and spooky!!!!  All the details for this card are below (including links).

 

 

Started with the the slimline base cut from white paper.  Created a small moon with a round piece of a white reposition-able label paper.  Inked the white paper with Distress Oxide Black Soot ink.  Used the ‘Slimline Wonky Window‘ Die Set from Whimsy Stamps to make the cool ‘window' view into the graveyard out of Basic Black.

 

 

 

The Red panels were also cut from the ‘Slimline Wonky Window‘ Die Set and the ‘Vampire‘ 6 x 6 printed paper from Whimsy, but I only used 3 of the 5 inserts the die makes.  The images of the haunted house and graveyard itself I glued in the original placement from the cut.  Slid the top center cut over to the far right edge and left some of the white paper showing through with the moon.  Left the lower right insert out.  Cut the wolf from the Whimsy ‘Monster Parade‘ Die Set.  Placed the wolf in the frame with a little additional red paper to give him a vibrant red eye.  Added just a little black soot color on top of the moon.  Cut the words Haunted & Graveyard from the ‘Haunted Words‘ Die Set from Whimsy.  Cut one out of gray and white out of black.

 

 

Just for a little extra, I added some Vampire fun to the inside of the card.  Cut another piece of the ‘Vampire‘ paper for the center of the inside.  Cut (2) pieces of gates from the ‘Build-A-Grave‘ Die Set from Whimsy and created a hill with the ‘Grass & Cloud Edger‘ Die Set.

There’s Blood In the Graveyard

Hey Y'all!!!  Sure wouldn't to be in this bloody graveyard on Halloween!  Trees ready to come to life and grab you.  These dies and paper from @whimsystamps are so fun and haunting for Halloween!  Have you ever visited a graveyard on Halloween night? All the details for this card are below (including links).

 


 

Started with Stampin' UP! Mercury Glass Designer Acetate and Silver Foil Sheets.  I cut the trees from the Mercury Glass and the gates and RIP from the Silver Foil Sheets.  Thought they looked great with the “Haunted” Paper from Whimsy Stamps.  Such haunted colors!  Cut a tombstone out of Stampin' UP! Basic Black Card Stock and inked the edges with Distress Oxide ‘Chipped Sapphire‘ and ‘Hickory Smoke‘.

 

I used the ‘Trees Assortment‘ Die Set & ‘Build-A-Graveyard‘ Die Set for the trees, gates and tombstone.

 

Finished it off with a little glittery red blood with Stickles ‘Christmas Red'.

I’ve Got My Eyes On You!

Hey Y'all!!!  These little googly eyes just crack me up!  They are from the ‘Eyes On You' stamp set from @fsjourney.  I need some big googly eyeglasses to wear for Halloween.  All the details for this card are below (including links).

 

 

I started by coloring the monsters with Copic Markers.  Mixed and matched what seemed like all the bright halloween colors.  And you know I LOVE bright colors.

 

The background is colored with alcohol inks on Yupo paper.  Valencia, Limeade & Amethyst.

 

Used Stampin' UP! card stock, Granny Apple Green and Gorgeous Grape.  They matched perfectly with the alcohol ink background.

 

Used the ‘Slimline‘ Diagonal die from Rubbernecker Stamps as a layer on top of the alcohol ink background.

 

 

The ‘Stitched Rectangle Frames' from Law Fawn made the perfect border stamps.  Cut two for a border around the background as well as the monsters.
