Spread Love at Whimsy Stamps

Hello friends!  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  Although it’s supposed to be VERY cold in January over my way, it has actually reached warm enough temperatures that we can cook out on the grill! I’ll take it for now as I don’t think it will last!

Have you been over to see the Digital January release at Whimsy Stamps yet?  There are SO MANY really fun and adorable images to color along with a couple of fun digital papers to help you finish up your cards!  Since Valentine’s Day is coming near, I decided to make a card with that in mind:


I have used this darling Spread Love digital stamp by Crissy Armstrong.  I just adore her wings and “heart antlers” sprinkling hearts everywhere! 🙂

I have colored her up in Copic markers in the following:

  1.  Dress, shoes and a couple of the hearts – R85, R83, R81
  2. Heart on dress, heart antlers and other hearts – R24, R22, R21
  3. Wings – R00, BG000
  4. Hair – E27, E25, E23, E21
  5. Skin – E11, E00, E000, R20, R00 (cheeks)
  6. Around image – B000, E0000

I’ve also taken a cloud stencil to add some clouds in the background with an ink blender foam tool and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.  I then embossed the sentiment from the Whimsy Stamps Snow Flurry clear stamp set with some gold embossing powder.  I went around the edges of the image panel and added a few “dots” around the hearts with the Nuvo Honey Gold Glitter Drops.

For the background of the card, I’ve used the new Hearts a Flutter Digital Papers and cut out a piece with the Whimsy Stamps Hand Stitched Nested Rectangles die.  I then trimmed this piece at an angle and attached it to a strip of this white punched border that I’ve made.  I’ve also cut out a piece of pink cardstock with the same die and trimmed this out an angle as well.  Both of these pieces were attached to an A2 sized white top folding card base.  The image panel was attached over a piece of craft foam and mounted to the front of the card along with the gold ribbon.


Taking a closer view of this image, you can see on the wings that I’ve added some shimmer to them with a Wink of Stella clear glitter brush pen.  You can also see where I’ve taken a gold gel pen and went over the swirls in her dress as well as the “heart antler stems” on her head.  I always love to add little details like on my coloring and I hope you’ve enjoyed it today as well!

Thanks so much for dropping in and I’ll see you soon!

  1. Oh she is so sweet love her heart antlers and the sparkle on her wings really shines. Love the heart punch diagonal border just adds that special touch. I love that you list your comic colors.
    Still trying to get my mojo back after Christmas cards.


  2. Gee Vicki where do I start on this one! Just every little detail here is sheer perfection. The background DP
    is stunning, the heart punching with the pink hearts are beautiful. Now on to that fairy – great idea to add clouds to the background which really show her off beautifully. Your colouring skills floors me each time I see your work. Just perfection again. The shimmer another bonus and finishing with a beautiful bow. I really think this is my maybe all time favourite as it is just PERFECT (did I mention perfect) in every way. Swoooooooooning here!
