Hello, I am Hester, I am married and we have a daughter. I work part-time as an intermediary and I am trainer /coach for a Korfball team. In my spare time mostly Sundays, I do some crafting. Crafting works so relaxing for me. Years ago I started to cut cards that we received and make other cards of it. Then with 3D images. Now mainly stamps and digis. Now I make all my cards with the Silhouette Cameo. I design most of them myself.  I make cards, scrapbooks, treats and home deco.

1.)    If you had to choose, what would your top 3 favorite Whimsy products be and why?  The digital image, paper and sentiment. You can all mix and match them together.

2.)    If you could have a super power, what would it be? To stop the time so that I have more time for crafting.

3.)    What is your favorite color combo and favorite coloring medium? Purple, pink and red. I always color with Copics.

4.)    If you had to survive on just 3 foods, what would they be? Donuts, Indonesian food and water

5.)    What do you like most about being a member of the Whimsy Creative Team? I have a new creative family. Thank you all for being part of it.

This Lantern card is my favorite card because this was my first design in the Silhouette Cameo. You can get the template for free in the store https://whimsystamps.com/pages/digital-freebies


Bouquet for you

Hi everyone,
I am over the moon ever since I got my Daniel Smith watercolors, I am just enjoying watercoloring and there are so many gorgeous stamps released by Whimsy Stamps which are perfect to colour. Today I used a stamp set by Doveart called the Bouquet. Its a beautiful image to colour with any coloring medium.
I love painting my blooms in pink and violet shades as they always look natural & pretty. I used a die to cut the stitched rectangle and a beautiful sentiment that finishes the card so elegantly. I hope you liked this card for today and do try to recreate it :)
Hugs

Hydrangea Cluster

Hello Whimsy Friends! Iris here today with a card made using one of the new Whimsy Rubber stamps from the DoveArt line. This is one of my absolute favorites from the new line. It's called Hydrangea Cluster.


I stamped the Hydrangeas a few times onto Canson heavy weight (140lbs) watercolor cardstock with Distress Ink Antique Linen and colored using Daniel Smith watercolors. (see a list of colors used below). After the watercolors had dried thoroughly I fuzzy cut the Hydrangea flowers. The sentiment is from the Happy Headlines clear set by Deb Davis and was stamped using VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink and cut out afterwards. For the background I sponged Fossilized Amber Distress Ink all over the watercolor cardstock I used for the background. I spritzed it with water for some more interest and let it dry. Then I used the Brick Pattern Stencil and Fossilized Amber Oxide ink to sponge the pattern. Using the same color Oxide ink with the stencil as the background gives it a more saturated look and makes it stand out more as the Oxide ink is more opaque. After the ink was dry I applied Liquitex Gloss Super Heavy Gel to add some structure. This gel goes on white and dries crystal clear for an awesome glass like 3D effect.



Here is a closeup on the Hydrangeas. I also added a few crystal dew drops. Kind of hard to see in the photo but looks really nice in real life.


Daniel Smith water colors used:

Sap Green
Undersea Green
Lunar Blue
