Whimsy Stamps Cuddly Ride

Hello friends!  🙂

It’s been SO gorgeous outside with this wonderfully warm weather we’re having right now, so I find it hard to stay indoors right now!  We have rain coming, so I will be able to get some crafting done then!

Swinging by to share this really sweet digital image by Sylvia Zet for Whimsy Stamps called Cuddly Ride!  They have sold the rubber stamp version, but now they’re releasing these older images as digital files now!  So weather you like the rubber stamp or the digital images, it’s great to know that you can choose either!


I got her colored up in the following Copics: (CLICK HERE to purchase at Whimsy Stamps!)

  • Snail shell – E29, E27, E25, E23, E21
  • Snail body – W5, W3, W1, E21, E000, R20
  • Snail bow/patches, girl outfit – B37, B34, B32, YG13, YG11, C5, C3, C1
  • Girl’s Hair/Skin – E49, E47, E44, E43, E40, R20, R00, E21, E11, E00, E000
  • Pointillism under snail – W3, W1, W0
  • Used a white gel pen for hightlights on snail and covered the ground with a Wink of Stella glitter brush pen

After coloring her up, I also sponged some clouds behind her with a stencil and then cut it out with the Whimsy Stamps Notched Square Dies.  I’ve also cut an additional larger blue layer for behind the image.  For the blue flowers scattered around as well as for the pieces for grass accents on my card, I’ve used the Whimsy Stamps No-See All Seasons Tree Dies.

I’ve taken a sentiment from my stash (retired Whimsy Stamps) and white heat embossed it over a piece of the blue cardstock and then I’ve used the Whimsy Stamps Quick Strips Die Set to cut it out.  Lastly, I’ve added some ribbon, a bow with a resin flower glued over the center of it and then I’ve added some rhinestones to the centers of the blue flowers.


From the same sentiment stamp set that I’ve used, I took a tiny heart image and stamped it with green ink around the colored image.  Of course I tried to capture the wonderful shimmer underneath the snail where I’ve colored the Pointillism technique, but it just won’t show up in photos very well, but I just love the shimmer under him!  I also used a silver metallic gel pen to color the “buttons” on the girl’s jumper.


I thought she turned out really cute and I think this would make a wonderful card for that special friend who is always by your side!

  11. Love snails – and they do have a bit of a sticky substance. Never knew that until we started walking the state park trails here in the subdivision and we could see the trail of “slime”. Love how you color coordinate everything – I can’t imagine where you store all your embellishments – and then to remember where they are. Warmer weather is much appreciated. Although we didn’t have a very pretty weekend.


  12. Your coloring on this is divine, Vicki! This little cuties and her slow-moving snail have stolen my heart!!


  13. Such a sweet picture, but the greatest impression on me was your coloring. I love the girl’s bright face and her beautiful hair that shines so incredibly. It’s a real masterpiece of coloring, Vicki
