Funny Friday with Art Impressions: AI Hamster Wheel Cubbies

Oh dear… this stamp set brings back memories!!! I can’t even begin to tell you how many years I tortured my mom by having hamsters!! I had them, my sisters had them… it was mayhem!! 

So, when I saw this Hamster Wheel Cubbies stamp and die set it was a must have!! I love how the coordinating die creates the doors, windows, and wheels for the cute little rascals to sneak in and out of!!

I started these images off by water coloring the main areas. I finished by adding extra shading with a couple of Copic markers. I like to mix the two mediums for deeper colors and additional blending.

  1. I love this great hamster stamp and die set. The card you made is stunning, love all those hamsters peeking out.
    Yes hamsters brings me also on memory lane. Thank you so much Shari for showing and have a great weekend.

  2. That is the cutest card- I love the way you watercolored it and then added some Copic coloring!

  3. The hamster of my youth was an escape artist…my mom said everytime she heard him scratching around in the back of a closet and was searching to find him, she was praying it was my hamster and not a mouse! Cute stamp set and great color combination!

  4. Cute card! I like all the openings for the hamsters and how the dies cut the images without leaving a white outline.

  5. OMG, this is so cute!!! Takes me back to when my younger sister had hamsters and we’d watch them play in their house.

  6. These hamsters are so cute and I love the various creative themes! I have the squirrel and dogs set and love them too, you can get so creative (I’ve even added images from other stamp sets)!
