Introducing Two New Doodlelicious Divas

Hi Whimsie Doodles Fans,

We would like to say a big thank you to everyone who applied to join our small team, the entries were fantastic and we had a hard time choosing some new members. Unfortunately we could not take everyone!  So without further ado please welcome our two new Diva's.

My name is Patricia Alvarez. I am from Spain but I have been living in the USA for several years. I have been drawing animals since I can remember, but I started making cards a few years ago. I love coloring rubber and digital stamps and make cards with them. I usually make CAS cards, but I am learning little by little other styles. Outside of the crafting world, I love to be outdoors with my family, spending time with my friends and reading. You can visit Patricia's blog here
My name is Karen, and I enjoy papercrafting, sharing and inspiring others with my creations. I absolutely love using rubber stamps and/or digi images, then coloring them with my Copic markers. Papercrafting is my passion, keeps my life balanced, and takes me to my happy place. I have been blogging since January 2012 and have had the opportunity to work on many Design Teams.
I was born and raised in the beautiful state of Washington. I currently live in the city of Tukwila with my hubby, Kurt. We have been married 34 years and we have two handsome sons, Kyle and Kory. I am a Finance Tech II for a large school district during the work week. Evenings and weekends, I try to spend time in my crafty space whenever time allows.
Besides having a passion for papercrafting, I also enjoy baking, cooking, eating good food, red wine, dark chocolate, traveling and laughing. Basically, I just want to have fun and enjoy life!
“The most important thing is to enjoy your life—to be happy—it's all that matters.” - Audrey Hepburn
You can find me at Catch the Frenzy!

Hang in There

Hi There,

It's Andrea here today wishing you all all very happy Friday. 

Today I would like to share a card I made using one of the awesome Freebies that are available in the Store.

I love red and black and also love ladybugs so I really wanted to colour up the Hang in There image so out came my trusty copics.


I added some glossy accents to his nose and some black enamel accents to his black spots which added some extra dimension.  I paired the image up with some scrap pieces of designer paper I had in my stash. I picked up the cute wee wooden ladybug in the dollar shop a while ago and I had to add him to my card too! For a detailed list of the supplies I used please pop over to my blog.

Have a great weekend and happy crafting.

Spring Lizzie

Hi Whimsie Doodle Fans..

Christine here today - sharing my card using the lovely Spring Lizzie which you can find here HERE in the shop.

I decided to use fresh colours for Lizzie - and as she's out in the garden, I thought yellows and greens would suit her - finished off with a deep peach hat to go with the centre of the flowers on the design paper.

I finished her off with some rustic button twine, and some enamel dots on the embossed background.

If you'd like more details of colours etc, pop over to my blog HERE.

Thanks for looking and have a great day...

It's a Boy Thing!

Hi there,

 It's Andrea here with some doodlelicious inspiration for you this Wednesday.

 I don't know about you but I find male cards so hard to make and especially ones for teenage boys! Thankfully there are some awesome male images available in the Store which are perfect for these masculine makes.  For my card today I used Hoodie Jayson and he so reminds me of both my brothers when they were teenagers - hood always up and the hands in the pockets!

I coloured Jayson in with my copics and fuzzy cut him out. I paired him with some designer paper and grey card and mounted this onto an embossed card front.  I also added some ribbon and some blue enamel stars for texture. For full details on the supplies I used pop over to my blog.
I hope you like him.

Thanks for popping by and have a great day.

Congrats Balloon

Hi friends!  kel here to share with you a super fun card today!  I've played with this digi before, Balloon Lizzie at the top of the People Digi's page, but I couldn't help but play with her again!  She is just too cute, and perfect for my niece who just got accepted to the Disney College Program and will be spending this Fall/Winter in Florida working for the mouse!!

I colored her up with my Copics and then added a banner congratulations sentiment to it too... Then I did a little sprinkle of sequins across the card to finish it off!  Thanks for stopping by, hope to see you again soon!

Space Birthday Card

Hi all!  kel here sharing a card with you today!!  This is the Outer Space border from the Backgrounds Borders set sitting towards the bottom of the What's New page.  

So I have to say that I cheated a little bit and colored up the blue sky gradient in photoshop and printed it out in color.  That would have been A LOT of Copic ink to use up and I didn't have any blue refills at the time (I ordered some though!) so I didn't want to take the chance that I'd dry my pens up and need the color for another project!  haha.  But it came out really cute... and I hand colored everything else so I still put in work on this card lol!

Just LOVE this border.  I think I have to go play with more borders from this set now!!  haha.  Thanks for stopping by, hope to see you again soon!!

Happy Spring

Hi Whimsie Doodles Fans,

I hope everyone is having a great week. It's Andrea here sharing a fun Spring card with you today.  I couldn't wait to colour up this month's new releases and I have to say this bunny with his carrot balloon is my favourite! Such a great image for Easter or for Spring.  You can find him in the What's New section of the store.

I coloured him up with my copics and then created this little scene.  You can find all the supplies that I used over at my blog.

Thanks for popping by today and happy crafting.

Garden Lizzie

Hi Peeps...

Christine here today - and I'm sharing with you a very simple and quick card I made using Garden Lizzie.

Now this is what I look like (ok, not as pretty!) in the garden in Springtime - planting all sorts to come up in Summer. 

I used my Copics for colouring and I gave Lizzie spotty boots too - just to match the paper.

Hope you like what I did - and if you want more details, you can always pop over to my blog here.

Happy Crafting..
