Slimline Gossip Girls Christmas!

Hi friends!
I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! This year was very different for us, as I am sure it has been for all of you too. Cortney hasn't been able to come home since February, but she is happy and healthy at Misericordia.  No one came over for dinner, so we chatted on Zoom and had a glass of champagne together.  Through all of this chaos, I do feel extremely blessed.  As my grandmother used to say, "This too shall pass."
I've had a bit of time here and there in my craft room and used this awesome Gossip Holiday Girls set again.  I colored them in using Copics and added white flock for a bit of texture
I framed each girl using the new Selfie Die set in red and gold.  To "ground" the images, I used the Slimline Fancy Frame Die set and gave it a pinkish hue using Tim Holtz Festive Berries ink.  I splattered it with water.  I added gold sequins, silk ribbon, and gold jingle bells.  
For added dimension, I popped everything up using Shaker Maker Foam Tape.  

Thank you for stopping by today!
Be sure to pop over to Whimsy to see all of their new products!

Slimline Penguin Party!

Good morning friends!
Today it is feeling a bit wintery as we have gotten our first snowfall here in Chicago.
So how about a little penguin party to celebrate!
This adorable set is by Whimsy Stamps, called, Happy Feet.  Each penguin was colored with Copic Markers and fussy cut. 
I used the new Funky Frames Die set.  Each frame was inked up with Tim Holtz inks.  I splattered a bit of water on it.  The background inside the frame was done in blues to create the sky.  

The frame hangs on a teeny peppermint from the Santa's Treat Sprinkletz collection. 

I popped up the frame and the penguins using Shaker Maker FoamTape.  For a finishing touch I tied a vertical red ribbon and gold jingle bells. 

Be sure to head over to Whimsy to see their full November release! 
Have a great day!
