A Very Mice Christmas Box!

 Good morning! It has definitely been feeling more like Christmas instead of fall around here! We just had our second snowfall of the year and the temps are only in the teens! (Yikes!) 
So I've decided to embrace it and watch the Hallmark Christmas movie channel and create!
I simply adore the Mini Treat Box die from Whimsy Stamps!It truly is the perfect size for little treats.I paired it with their November release, Very Mice Christmas. (Even the name is cute!)
I colored the image with Copic markers and cut it out using the Stitched Circle die.  I stamped the sentiment on a jewelry tag. I added gingham ribbon, and a couple of red teeny flowers.  
Thank you for stopping by!

Holiday Wishes

Have you started your Christmas cards yet?
There are so many new sets from Whimsy Stamps that I have been on a roll with mine!
I used a new set called, Gingerbread Greetings. I colored these sweet houses with Copic markers and then cut them out. 
I used Stickles on the roofs and glossy accents on the heart.  I layered the houses with Crafty Foam Tape over a gold doily from my stash. I stamped the background with Whimsy's new Tartan Plaid Background stamp.  
I tied a ribbon to the top and added a couple of glittery gold jingle bells using gold cording.  I adhered a few gold stars to play off of the gold theme I seemed to have going on here.  ;)
Have a great day! Thank you for stopping by!

Say Whaaaaaaat?

Hi friends!
Hope you are all doing well!
I have a quick post today sharing another new (adorable) release from Whimsy Stamps! It is called, Winter Sports.  I colored my feathered friend with Copic markers.  The background was done using Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks.  (See supplies below)

 I used the Rounded Rectangles die.  On the back panel, I stamped the snowflakes to create my own sort of designer paper.  The "snow" was done with Stickles.  I used a few snowflakes from the Sparkletz collection.  I decided tuck the sentiment on the side, as not to distract from my skiing flamingo! ;)  
Have a wonderful Tuesday!  I have lots of projects this month, so be sure to pop on by again soon!

Whimsy Stamp's November Release!

Are you coming down from your Halloween sugar high? ;)
I am sharing Whimsy Stamp's new November release called, Tweetie Pie. 
I colored these sweet birds with Copics and added snow using a white gel pen. I also added sparkly snow on the branches and the outer circle, using Stickles. I decided they would be cute as an ornament and used a Stampin Up! thingy (not sure what it is called), from my stash to create it. 
I added some Sparkletz to the shaker part. I stamped the sentiment in black and cut them into little banners.  The red posy and string are from my stash.  The teeny leaves were from the Build-a-Garden die set. I added additional sparkle to the leaves with Stickles.  I used the stitched circle dies to frame out the ornament.

Zombie Halloween!

Happy Halloween!
I have some cute Zombie treat bags using Whimsy Stamp's Zombie Boy stamps. 
I colored them with Copics and fussy cut them.  I then added glossy accents to their eyes.  
I used the Wavy Pierced Rectangle dies on black to help the Zombie boys stand out a bit more.  I used Copics to color a strip of paper in shades of orange and yellow and stamped my sentiment on it.  I tucked it under the Zombie boy and added a teeny bow with a purple sequin for the center.  
I added a few more sequins and popped the image on the black rectangle with Crafty Foam Tape. 
Just add some Halloween candy and you've got some Zombie treat bags! ;) 
Have a Happy Halloween friends!

Zombie Halloween!

Hello friends!
Did you miss me?
It's been a hectic couple of weeks and I feel as though lately I am treading water.
But I guess that is probably true of most people...and I am certainly not alone!
I do find snippets of time here and there to create and I am gearing up for Halloween.
I created this fun zombie card using Whimsy Stamp's Zombie Boy stamp set!
I colored him with Copic markers and added glossy accents to the jar and his eyes.  Or should I say his empty sockets? ewwwww! ;)
I cut the image and layers using Wavy Rectangles.  I stamped the sentiment directly on the green paper and embossed it in white.  I wanted to add a bit of fun to the black card stock so I used the Bats and Bubbles Border Die.  I added a few black sequins and bats for a finishing touch.  
I will try and post again soon!  Have a great day!

World Card Making Day Blog Hop!

World Cardmaking Day is a day dedicated to celebrating the art of handmade cards – whether made with construction paper and crayons or with more sophisticated supplies. As we crafters can all agree, a store-bought card, while nice, just can’t replace the personal and thoughtful nature of one made by hand. Today, the Whimsy Design Teams are honoring this craft with two hops – one here and another on Instagram. For each hop, Whimsy Stamps is giving away a $25 gift certificate to the store. To increase your chances of winning, be sure to leave a comment on each stop of the hop. All comments must be left by midnight EST on Saturday, October 12th . One winner will be randomly-chosen from each hop, and both winners will be announced on the Whimsy blog on Sunday, October 13th 
For my Halloween Treat Boxes, I used Whimsy's new Mini Treat Box Die.   This die is super cute and very easy to assemble.  I added white polka dots to the top of the box to jazz it up a little. 
I used Kooky Monsters to decorate the top of the box.  I colored them with Copic Markers.  The image was cut using the Stitched Circles Die set.  I added glossy accents to the monster's eyes and spots. 
I tied purple and white twine around the box and through a hole in the image.  I stamped the sentiment and tucked it under the bow.  I added Crafty Foam Tape under the circle to give a bit of room for the twine.  
For a finishing touch, I added a ghost and clear gem in the middle of the bow from the Boo Sparkletz collection. These boxes are perfect little treats to pass out to kids or in my case, because I am a teacher, to my colleagues! ;)

Blog Hop Lineup: 
For more Halloween fun and prizes, be sure to check out the Whimsy Blog every night this month for the 3rd Annual 31 Nights of Halloween blog celebration!
