Just Chillin' - Whimsy July late month release!

Another fabulous release from Whimsy Stamps with lots of Summer fun products! On my card today I am showcasing a fun NEW shark clear stamp set by Dustin Pike called 'Shark Fest'.

I colored again with my Ohuhu alcohol markers and the image was stamped onto Hammermill 100 lb. Digital Color Copy cardstock and stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I also used the NEW 'Daisies' Slimline Embossing Folder to give some texture to my background.

The sentiment that is included with the stamp set was stamped onto black cardstock with white ink and cut out using one of the Comic Speech Bubble dies. One of the Slimline Wavy Edger Dies.

Ohuhu markers used:

Shark: BGII05, BGII03, BG3
Green: G2, G190, GY1

'Seas' The Day

Hello crafty friends! The NEW Under The Sea stamp set from Whimsy Stamps most recent release is just the cutest and was totally screaming 'underwater shaker scene' to me 😃 ...well, so here we go...

I created my slimline shaker using the frame die from the Slimline Scenic Countryside die set. The shaker background is made using the Slimline Under The Sea papers and the sentiment is from the 'Baby Sea Creatures' clear stamp set.  I didn't want to cover too much of the background paper so I went with different sized clear sequins and confetti as my shaker filling.

Again I colored my images using my Ohuhu alcohol markers, the newest addition to my coloring mediums. I love to use them, they are super juicy and blend like butter. I think so far they hold up very well next to my beloved Copics. I am really impressed. I will test them further and might do a review in the near future. 

Ohuhu Markers used:

Red (Shrimp): R1, R2, R160, R22
Blue (Eyes): B220, B140, BGII05
Green (Turtle): G020, GY4, GY5, GY42
GY173, Y230, WG050,YG080
Purple (Stingray): V020, V160, P2, RG120
Pink (Seahorse): RV260, RV270, R21, RG120, RG150
Hermit Crab: R1, R2, R160, RG150, RG030, E380, E400

New Release - You Are On A Roll

Hello Stamping Friends & Happy Saturday! There are super cute new stamps and other products in the Whimsy shop today, all available HERE.

Below is an A2 sized card I made using some of the new products combined with previously released things. Please scroll down for a list of Whimsy products used. Whimsy's array of products gives you such a wide choice to choose from that you will always find matching stamps, dies, papers etc.

I recently splurged and bought some new alcohol markers. I still have all of my Copics of course but I also like to try new things and with the Copics and Copic refills being so expensive lately and sometimes also hard to get, I wanted to see what else is out there that is of good quality for a better price. So I did weeks of research and read lots of reviews and watched You Tube videos. I decided to try out the Ohuhu alcohol markers from the Honolulu series. They also have a brush and a broad nib. So far I've swatched them all out and also colored several images. I have to say I am very impressed. They are super juicy, blend like butter and are available in 242 different colors (at least the Honolulu series). I will do some more testing and then I might do a product review here on my blog. If you are interested keep an eye on my blog during the next couple of weeks.

Ok onto my card now....I started out by stamping my image from the NEW On A Roll clear stamp set onto Hammermill 100lb Color Copy Paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I then colored with my new Ohuhu markers and fussy cut the image. Scroll down for a list of colors used for this image.

To create the background I used the NEW Revealers 1 die set together with the previously released Giraffe stencil and a texture paste from Cosmic Shimmer in Frosted Blossom. The sentiment is included with the clear stamp set. I stamped part of the sentiment directly on my card layer and the other part with Versamak ink onto black cardstock and white heat embossed it. When I was done I added my image with foam dots onto my background layer and popped everyhting onto a black A2 cardstock base. A few added sequins finish off my card.

I am adding a list of marker colors I've used. Maybe you also own the Ohuhu markers and are having a hard time to find color combinations. The color naming system is different from the Copic system and I honestly haven't found out yet how it's supposed to work...LOL. Because even if your marker is labeled e.g. R for reds you will find R's ins several different color groups and the numbers do not yet make sense to me either. But with my swatch for help it was quite quick and easy easy to find color combinations.

Ohuhu Markers used:
Yellow: Y1, Y2, YR2, YR1
Brown: E380, E400, R28, YR95
Pink: R21, R23, RV320
Eyes: BGII03, B340
Shoes: R26, R280, R27, R28 / CGII00, BG050,BG070,CG5
