Splish Splash New Design Team FUN!

Hello friends!  I am VERY excited to share my first post with you today as a new design team member for the Whimsy Stamps Digital Design Team!  Woot!! Woot!

For those of you that have followed along with me for a while on my other blog know that I have previously worked with them as a DT member for other postions on the team over a period of several years.  This is simply because I adore Whimsy Stamps along with the owner and several others involved with this company.  I just love the images and working with them.  What better way to enjoy creating and coloring with the products than being apart of the team!  I’d like to share my creation today with this new image that was released at the beginning of this month:


I find these penguins from Crissy Armstrong in the store absolutely adorable!  They all make me smile, but how fun is this cute Penguin Bubble Bath image!  🙂  The image was colored with my Copic markers as well as certain areas with gel pens and then I brushed over the shower cap and bubbles with a clear glitter shimmer brush pen.  I also decided to do a little paper piecing with her shower cap using the August release digital papers called Wonky Circles.


Of course there is so much sparkly goodness on this card that it’s hard to capture in just one photo, so I tried to angle it a bit to give you another view from the sparkly gel pens on the bubbly drink, water and claw feet on the tub.  The shimmer brush pen details can be found on her shower cap as well as the bubbles.  And if that wasn’t enough sparkle, I’ve added a strip of glitter paper along the left side of the image and then finished it off with some Studio Katia Cyrstal Clear Confetti sequins.

The sentiment I’ve used in the upper right corner of the image panel comes from a Whimsy Stamps clear stamp set called Everyday Mini Sentiments.

I wanted to create a special birthday card with this image in mind, so that when you lift up the penguin image, the card opens up like this….


I’ve taken more of the these Wonky Circles digital papers and used them for the inside of my card design and created a pocket for a gift card to fit inside.  I thought a Bath & Body Works gift certficate would be fun to use with this image! LOL!

For the inside sentiment, I’ve used the Whimsy Stamps Happy Everything Clear stamp set.  I stamped the sentiment in black ink and then added the circle elements with some ink to coordinate with the paper.
