Happy Friday! As the month draws to a close, I wanted to share, not a Halloween card like a normal blogger, but another Christmas card featuring a cute Whimsy Stamps dragon!

Happy Tuesday my lovelies! It is pretty cold over here. Winter seems to be just around the corner!
I have a new Christmas card to share with you featuring an adorable Dustin Pike dragon. There were two sets released by Whimsy this month and this one is from the Dragon Wishes Clear Stamp Set. The image was stamped onto Copic paper with Memento London Fog and then colored with Copic Markers. I paired it with some paper from the new Tartan 6x6 Paper Pack and created a fun slim-line card.

Happy Tuesday! I hope that your week is going well so far! There is a new mini release from Whimsy Stamps and the Christmas theme is strong and I am here for it!!!
I absolutely love the patterned paper from Whimsy Stamps. Sometimes it is hard to cut it up for my cards so decided to showcase all the wonderful patterns for my cards today. I love to sew and make quilts and the patterned paper is just like the wonderful fabric that I use. I decided to cut the paper out to form "quilt" blocks!
I used paper from the new Tartan 6x6 Paper Pack and my trusty Fiskar trimmer to create both these cards.

Happy Monday and Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Canadians! We are having a quiet family day but the boys still wanted the full on turkey feast! My apple pie is baked and the turkey and stuffing are roasting away in the oven. A few more sides to prepare and we will be set for our wee Thanksgiving dinner. After such an awful year for everyone, I am very grateful for all my boys.
I have been waiting for this set to come back into stock before sharing this card with you and it seems like an appropriate one for today.
This wee squirrel is from the Bundles of Hugs Clear Stamp Set. I stamped him with a lighter ink (Memento London Fog) and then colored him up with copic markers. I then made a mask for the image and stamped one of the images from the Nature's Skeleton Clear Stamp Set with a light green ink.
I die-cut the image using the Nested Hexagon Die Set. I then cut a piece of patterned paper from the Birthday Celebrations 6x6 Paper Pack to serve as a mat for my A2 sized card and using the same die I had previously, I die-cut a "window" from the patterned paper.
The stars were cut from red card-stock using the Slimline Stars Background Die. The sentiment which is included in this set was stamped using Versafine Black Onyx ink and my Misti (allowing perfect placement).

Happy Thursday and Welcome to Day #8 of Whimsy Stamps' Annual 31 Days of Halloween!
I combined a bunch of Halloween products (both old ones and ones that are recently released) to create this sweet and not very scary Halloween Card!
My focal image is the digital stamp Witch Cinnamon. I was able to size the image to perfectly fit within my frame. That is what I love so much about digital stamps - they are so versatile and 100% customizable. I printed it on Copic X-Pressit paper and then colored it using many, many Copic Markers! I have listed them here for you.
Skin: E000, E00, E11, E04, R30, R20
Hair: Y21, E17, E19Hat & Cape: BV00, BV02, BV08, C5, C7, C9Shirt, Shorts and Tights: BV02, BV04, BV08, C3Broom: YR31, YR24, E31, E35Shoes: C1, C3, C5,C7Background: N9, V28, V25
To create the frame, I used the Day of the Dead Frame. I heat embossed it onto black cardstock using white embossing powder. I colored in the image using Polychromos pencils and added some glitter using Stickles. Then I fussy cut out the frame.
The background of the card is made with one of the patterned papers found in the Vampire 6x6" paper pack. I cut it to measure 5.25" square and then mounted in onto a 5.5" square card-base.
I then added some bats that I die cut from black cardstock using the Dracula Going Batty Die Set. I added some stickles to then so that they would contrast the black cardstock and be seen better. I also die cut the sentiment from some glitter paper using the Chills Word Die Set.
