Whimsy New Kinetic Dies – Christmas Woods Angel

Happy Thursday! Today I have a new card to share with you and it features some amazing kinetic dies that Whimsy Stamps just released today! These are going to be a real game changer for my cards.  I love creating interactive cards and the new kinetic dies are so simple to use, so I know that I will be using them a lot!

What is really special about these dies is that you can create movement BUT the components stay hidden! Check out this little demonstration:

I wanted to create a very magical scene and that is why I chose to die cut all the elements out of either white cardstock or silver glitter paper.  The background was very easily created…..I printed out one of the digital papers from Whimsy (linked below) and cut it to size. The angel/fairy was colored in soft colors to match the colors in the paper (copic markers listed below).  I didn’t film a how-to video because one of the Whimsy designers will be creating some but I plan to create a video a little later on this month!

Peace on Earth | Whimsy Stamps

Hi Everyone! I was all set to publish a post using one of the new November Whimsy Release and just saw that it is ALREADY SOLD OUT!  I am actually not that surprised, really, because it is such a sweet image. Not to worry, I know that Denise will be restocking shortly and will keep an eye out for it so I can share my card!

In the meantime, I haven’t shared this card with you.  I used some lovely dies from the October release to create this card. I have to admit, I really love the simplicity and ease of using die cuts only on a card!

The background was created by sponging Bristol Smooth cardstock with various distress inks (listed below) and then to furthur the distressed look, I sprayed the surface with water and dabbed at the excess with a paper towel. I think it looks like a snowy, night sky.

I used gold embossing powder to add the sentiment to the card and strategically placed a star onto the sky.

Distress Inks Used:

Distress Oxide Cracked Pistachio

Distress Blue Print Sketch

Distress Faded Jeans

Distress Black Soot

Evergren Trees Die Set

Evergreen Trees Die Set

Distress Inks

Embossing Powder


VersaMark Full-Size Ink Pad - Original (Clear)

That is is for me today. Have a great day!

Christmas Series 2018 | Day #8 Little Reveal Wheel

Happy Tuesday! Hope your week is off to a great start!! Have you started thinking about decorating and shopping for Christmas?  I start pretty early but I think that is because I am a blogger and I have to get my content ready way before the season starts!  Today’s card set and video tutorial took a long while to film and edit!  I am absolutely crazy about the interactive effect that the Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel adds to a card.  I think that everyone will be super happy to get one of these in the mail this holiday series!

I CANNOT get enough of these cute penguins! They certainly look like they are very hard working….well maybe that little guy in the box is playing more than working, but he is a cutie!

Using the same set but creating a different look. I added less images and switched up the backgroud inks colors and the appperature shape.

Did you see THIS POST?  I used this set to create a totally different take on Santa, his sled and the reindeer.  I mentioned in my video tutorial that I was planning on making one featuring an iconic night sleigh scene… it is! I am super happy with how it turned out!

Finally, I used other images from the Santa Sleigh set to create this card.  I thought Santa might want a change and so I gave him a lovely blue suit. Hope he likes it!!!

Turtle Lights Christmas Card

Happy Saturday! I have a BUSY weekend ahead but I wanted to pop in to share one of my cards with Whimsy Stamps November release.  This image was illustrated by the very talented Crissy Armstrong and features a very sweet little holiday critter. The Turtle Christmas Lights Rubber Stamp is so sweet. I have a soft spot for Sea Turtles as I have had the opportunity to see them up close and even swim with them.

Christmas Series 2018 | Day # 7 Welcoming Santa

Happy Thursday! The week is just flying by! I hope yours has been a good one and that you are finding a little crafty time of your own!

I have the seventh card and video in my 2018 Christmas Series to share with you and I am just so super excited for you to see it!  When I first saw this gorgeous stamp set from Mama Elephant, I immediately pictured a dark blue sky and Santa’s sleigh flying up among the stars.  Then I thought that I’d like to change it up just a wee bit. How about a lovely pink sky at dawn and Santa being welcomed home by some pretty excited young reindeer. They are too young to fly with Santa yet but are super happy to race alongside his sled once he arrives home!

I changed up my normal go-to ink colors for Abandoned Coral and Cracked Pistchio Distress inks and I am in love with this color combo! I am sure to be using it some more this season because it is so striking against the red in Santa’s suit and sleigh!  I take you through the whole card making process in my video so I won’t go too in depth here.  I wasn’t able to find the exact background stamp that I used for the snow (it was MFT Confetti Background stamp) but I have linked a very similar one for you in the product list.

Reindeer Love - Sweet November Digital Stamps

Happy Tuesday! I hope you are all having a good week and if you aren’t; hang in there. It will get better! Maybe try a little craft therapy!

Earlier this month, I was very fortunate to win the entire October digital release from Amy Young’s line: Sweet November. It is carried by 7kidscraftstore and is absolutely lovely, whimsical and full of possibilites for Christmas!  I was so shocked when I saw that my name had been pulled but so, so grateful that I had won! I have been so busy these last days but still try to color a little bit each day.  This card front is a result of many short coloring sessions! I am so happy that I finally can share this with you guys!

I merged two different stamps together to create this scene.  The first one is the wee elf boy hugging the reindeer. The wooden posts are part of the digital image.  The wee elf girl is actually holding a doll in her arms but I decided to remove the doll and have her hands hidden under all that lovely fur of the reindeer aa she pets him.  I love how joyful they all look together.

I did not note the marker numbers that I used. A very sweet elf of my own decided to help Mum out by putting away all her markers!!! If you take a look at older posts with images colored in reds, green and golds etc, you will get a good idea of what I used.


I hope you take a look at these lovely Sweet November images, there are more Christmas themed ones to choose from. I hope to start on one featuring Mr & Mrs Claus!  There is also an October Share Project over at the 7kids Facebook page.  Share a project from the October Release and you will get an exclusive digi from next month’s release and a chance to win that release as well!

Thanks again 7kids and Amy! I love these October digis!

Christmas Series 2018 | Day #6 Penguin’s Bedtime

Happy day and Welcome to Day #5 of my 2018 Christmas Series. Today I have a very coloring heavy video to share with you.  I created this 6x8” insert page for my December Daily album.  It features digital images and digital pages, all combined to create a single layer page that has the feel of many dimensions.  It is one of my very favorite ways to create custom pages for my cards.  This could very easily be re-sized to fit an A2 sized card.
