New Video - Heat Embossed Background




Hello  Friends,

We have just added another new video to our YouTube channel. This is a heat embossed background technique by DT member Jeanette. In the video Jeanette demonstrates how to create a one of a kind background design using the Whimsy background stamp Life Defined some white embossing powder and then sponged on ink.

Lizzy Love....."Jane's Long day at the Office"

Hello everyone! Cindy here today to share a card I made using a Lizzy Love stamp called "Jane's Long day at the Office"
 
 
 
I used Faber-Castell Gelatos to make the background and added vellum over the top to mute the colors a little. I also used the gelatos to color the background behind her. I colored her with my Copic Markers and heat embossed the sentiment.
 
 
Hope you like my card!
Have a fabulous weekend!
Cindy

Wee Hamster

Here’s another stamp I found that has never seen ink.  I have way too much crafty stash that’s for sure.  This is Xmas Hamster by Sylvia Zet for Whimsy Stamps (try saying that fast ha!)

Bountiful Ceci

Hello Whimsy Fans!  I hope your week has been going well and you're getting in some crafty time.  My kids went back to school last week, so it's been so nice having a quiet house and getting caught up on projects that have been long neglected!

As we move into the Autumn season, I thought Bountiful Ceci would make for a perfect Autumn image.
She's been colored up with copics and colored pencils for the deeper shadows.
Thanks for stopping by today and hope your upcoming weekend is fabulous!
