Windy Day Cinnamon For Whimsy Stamps

Hello friends!  Can you feel it in the air?  Autumn is on the way along with the crisp cool air and blowing leaves!  I know that some of you had said you’re not looking forward to Fall when I asked, but I absolutely love everything about it including the sweater weather season & flavors like pumpkin spice and cinnamon!  Speaking of which, I have a fun Autumn color inspired card o share with you today:


This cute image is called Windy Day Cinnamon from Whimsy Stamps.  I thought she looked as happy about Fall coming as I do, so I went with those colors in mind when creating this card.  After coloring her in with my Copics, I cut her out with a banner shaped die and went around the edges of it with tea dye distress ink and layered her onto another banner layer and set it aside.

For my card base, I took some orange colored plaid pattern paper and die cut it out with a wonky stitched rectangle die.  I took a double layer of twine and wrapped it around this piece and tied a bow towards the bottom thirds of the piece and then attached it down to the brown A2 sized top folding card base.

I took the image banner panel and added a piece of craft foam to pop her up over the card base.  I took a chipboard sentiment from my stash and added some foam tape to one side of it and glued the other side to the image panel.  I added a flower to the center of the twine bow along with a few others along the side.


Here’s a closer view of how I’ve colored Cinnamon with Copic markers:

  • Coat, Hat:  YG61, YG63, YG67
  • Shoes, Purse & Coat Buttons:  E31, E33, E35, E37
  • Scarf, Mittens, Hat Flower:  YR12, YR14, YR18
  • Hair:  YR30, Y32, E43
  • Skin:  E000, E00, E11, E21, R20, R00
  • Shadows:  E41, E42, E0000
  • Used a gel pen for the center of the flower on her hat and the purse closure button


I hope you’ve enjoyed my Autumn color inspired card today!

  3. This is so cuuute, Vicki! I’m definitely ready for those crisp, cool days of autumn and I wish the breezes were blowing around here. I’m afraid we’re facing another long stretch of temperatures over 100F – at least another 7 days, according to the weather forecasters this morning. Sheesh! I’ll just come visit this darling card and get my refreshment from the heat, even if I have to visit a few times each day. 😀
    While I’m here, let me put o a DT hat and thank you for playing along with us at QKR Stampede.
