Merries of Wishes

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!

Like my card from yesterday, this image is one 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 which I diecut using the Comic Burst A2 Die.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great rest of the day and stay safe!

Dragon Wishes

 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.

The "Merriest Wishes" sentiment is included in the stamp set and was stamped using Versafine Black Onyx ink.  I added some glitter to the groudn below the dragone using some Nuvo Glitter Drops.

To create the banner, I used the word "Christmas" from the Slimline Vertical Sentiments Set and fussy cut each of them out before adhering them to the card.  I drew a wire to connect them all using a very fine pencil.  Originally, I was going to use the sentiment in the vertical position but I didn't like how it looked so I opted for this way which I really love.  It took some time to fussy cut but it was worth it!

Tartan - New Mini Release from Whimsy Stamps

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.

Let me know if you are interested in a wee tutorial on how to create these looks.  Any other quilters out there?!

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!

 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).

Jingle All the Way - Whimsy Stamps Mini Release

 Happy Saturday! I hope that you are having a good day! I have a new card to share with you from the new mini release from Whimsy Stamps! Gnomes seem to be everywhere these days and these cuties are among the cutest I have seen yet!

This sweet little gnome is part of the Gnome for Christmas Clear Stamp Set.  I colored the image up using Copic Markers and then did a quick ink blending around him for some depth and interest.
The frame is the new Slimline Scenic Window Die and I die-cut from some heavy weight white card-stock.  I added the sentiment by embossing it with gold embossing powder. 

I added some pretty and festive patterned paper on the two side openings.  The paper is part of a digital paper set called Christmas Red, Gold, Green Papers.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope that you have a great rest of the day!
Stay Safe!

31 Days of Halloween - Day #8

 Happy Thursday and Welcome to Day #8 of Whimsy Stamps'  Annual 31 Days of Halloween! 

Tonight it is my turn to share a spooky creation with you.  There are lots of great prizes, gorgeous projects and much fun to be had.  Please see the end of this blog post for more complete details on the rules and how to enter.

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, E19
Hat & Cape: BV00, BV02, BV08, C5, C7, C9
Shirt, Shorts and Tights: BV02, BV04, BV08, C3
Broom: YR31, YR24, E31, E35
Shoes: C1, C3, C5,C7
Background: 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.
