One Layout TWO ways!

Hi friends! 
I have two cards today to share with you.  I used the exact layout for both, but changed the color scheme and the stamps for a completely different look.  Both use the Slimline Scallop Die. The first card uses the Happy Owlidays set by Whimsy Stamps. 
I stamped the same owl on the oval pieces in slightly different directions to make the card a bit quirky.  (Like the gal who created it. ) I used Polychromo pencils, Stickles, and a bit of glossy accents to bring them to life. I tied some red twine, stamped the sentiments,  and added a few Sparklets to finish it off. 

The second card was created for the Whimsy Retreat that took place in October.  I used the adorable Kooky Monsters set.  I colored the images with Polychromo pencils.  I also colored the pieces of candy, fussy cut them out and added glossy accents. 
I tied purple twine and added a few Sparkletz to complete the card. 

Thanks so much for stopping by! 
Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Whimsy Stamp's December Release!!

Good morning! Happy 1st of December!  You know what today is? Whimsy Stamp's December release! WOOOOHOOO! 
I am using the new super adorable, Winter Wonderland Snowmen set! I love shaker cards and used the Slimline Postage Die to do it. 
The snowman were colored with Copics and fussy cut.  I used the super cute Cozy Winter paper pack.  I love all the soft colors in this set! I used Crafty Foam tape, Stickles for the snow, and Sparkletz Snow Crystals to fill the shaker. 
I tied a bit of white string with a couple of pink jingle bells to tie it all together. 
So glad you stopped by! I am headed downtown Chicago to see the Zoo lights! Have a great day!

Deck the Owls!

Good morning and Happy Thanksgiving Eve!
I have a quick post today (As I have to pick up Cortney, clean, and cook for tomorrow!)
I used Whimsy Stamp's Happy Owlidays stamp set. I stamped this cutie in Tim Holtz Antique Linen ink for a no line coloring effect. I used Copic markers. I love changing up the shape of cards, so I used the Shaker Maker Pennant Flag dies. 
I used Sparkletz Snow Crystals and Crystal Stars for the shaker.  
And just to add to your shopping pleasure, Whimsy has some awesome sales happening on Friday and Monday! Check it out!!

Happy Owlidays!

Howdy friends!
Can you believe we are only about a month from Christmas? Where did the year run off to?
Are you caught up with making your cards?
How about his cute set called, Happy Owlidays!
I stamped the image and used Polychromo pencils to color it.  I fussy cut it, added white gel pen highlights and added Stickles to his hat. The background panel was sponged with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide ink in Faded Jeans.  I splattered it with a bit of water.  I embossed the Snowflake Frame stamp in gold. I popped the image in the center of my snowflake frame using Crafty Foam Tape. 

I added a few red sequins, silk ribbon, and a couple of gold jingle bells to tie it all together.  

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

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!
