Whimsy Stamp Creations

Whimsy Stamps had an amazing year in 2011! We wanted to take a few moments to reflect and reminisce about the wonderful Whimsy products that were released. In this section, some of our DT members have chosen their favorite cards and creations to share with you!

Giraffes in love

by Iris Wiechmann

Why Iris chose this card: My absolute favorite card I made in 2011 is definitely “Giraffe’s in Love”! I LOVE these animals and whenever I can I visit our local zoo (of course I have an annual pass ;-) ) where you can feed and pet these gentle giants. They have the most beautiful big brown eyes! So no wonder when I saw this stamp by Crissy Armstrong that I fell instantly in love with it.

Love

2011 Favorites

By Marilyn Scheller Stamps: Polar Club Melt, Love Letter Seals; Paper: K & Company; Colouring Medium: Copics; Embellishments: Tim Holtz brads & medallion, twine and Nestabilities Labels 10 Why this is Marilyn’s favorite Whimsy creation: Here is one of my favourite digi creations for 2011 because it was the first card I made as a new Whimsy digi designer and I was so thrilled to have been asked to join the team. I like polar bears and this image is a ‘feel-good’ one because of the way Mama bear is happily holding Baby who is snuggled in and content.

By Stephanne Maraver

2011 Favorites Stamps: Snow Kitty, sentiment from Tickled Pink Stamps; Coloring medium: Distress Inks; Ink: Archival ink; Paper: BasicGrey and Bazzill cardstock; Embellishments/tools: Embossing folder by Sizzix for BasicGrey, MS border punch, Spellbinders snowflake die, doily Nestabilities, MS doily punch, flowers, gingham and glitter Why Stephanne chose this card: This was my first card of the new year, when all the pressure of Christmas was behind us. I love the image and the contrast of white on white with the rich red and green. It's something I can only rarely achieve, as I tend to overload everything with distress inks.

The colors of white, silver and blue that I used I are also my favorite to use for wintery cards. ŠWhimsy Stamps, LLC.
