Hello everyone. Where did January go? It’s February 1st and Whimsy Stamps (WS) has a new mini release. I know Valentine is coming up, but this release is moving onto the next holiday celebration - St. Patrick’s Day! I am featuring the new Shenanigans Lassie die set and Lucky Day A2 toner card front panels.
The sentiment from one of the toner panels was foiled with Emerald Watercolor Decofoil then fussy cut out. Shenanigans Lassie was die cut from alcohol marker friendly (AMF) cardstock and thick white paper to stack for support. Coloured her skin and hair with Copic Sketch markers. I wish I knew how to draw because my attempt at drawing in her face was awful. 😂 Since the foil was out, took double-sided adhesive and attached it to a white paper scrap. Removed the adhesive liner then applied the foil to it before die cutting the skirt and hat from it.
Her shirt was die cut from AMF cardstock and shading added with cool gray Copic Sketch markers. Her boots were die cut from black glossy paper. Finally, an A2 Antique Frame was die cut from Bristol paper before assembling the card. Added some sparkling clear sequins to finish.
For my second card, the horseshoe toner panel was foiled with gold Decofoil. Trimmed the panel down to 4.75”x3.5”, then ink blended Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Rustic Wilderness and Black Soot distress inks. Wiped excess ink off with a paper towel.
The Heartfelt Thoughts sentiment stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on AMF cardstock and the Shenanigans Lassie clover die cut from AMF cardstock were both coloured with green Copic Sketch markers. Coloured around the sentiment in black and mounted the shamrock onto black cardstovck before fussy cutting them out. Assembled the card onto a split black/white card base and added highlights with a white gel pen to finish.
Here’s a small sampling of inspirations from the design team
