Merry & Bright

Hello Everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving - if you're in the US that is ;-) -  and enjoying the long weekend!

Whimsy is having a Cyber Monday sale, good time to stock up on some yummy rubber!


Here's another Christmas card I want to show to you:

This is Christmas Cookies by Elisabeth Bell. I kept the card rather simple and colored the image with Copics. The DP is from a Whimsy DP pad that is on clearance sale here and will soon be retired. The sentiment is from the 'Christmas Moments' set by SC Design.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Have an Awesome Birthday

Pin It

Hello Everyone! Today I want to show you a card I made a while back. It was for a magazine publication (My Hobbies, an Indonesian paper craft magazine), therefore I was not able to show it any earlier. The rubber stamp is from Whimsy's Crissy Armstrong line called Hippie Birthday, Man.

As always the image was colored with Copics. Papers are from an older Basic Grey collection. The sentiment is from the Boy Talk Sentiments set and the stars are cut out using the Pierced Stacking Star Die. Flowers and all other embellishments are from my stash.






Thanks for visiting me today and have a great start into the new week.

For my release hop creation today I chose Lullaby by Sylvia Zet.

As always lately I've colored her using Copics .....I'm neglecting my other mediums... note to self: have to change that! Furthermore I used the *NEW* Christmas Border Stocking Die,  and the Layered Snowflake Dies.  The sentiment is from the *NEW* Winter Brackets set. Flowers and embellies are from my stash.

Bird: E41, E43, E44, E47
For the white dots I used a Sharpie 'Paint' pen,
with extra fine tip. My favorite white pen!




I also decorated the inside by stamping part of the image again using a matching yellow golden ink (Memento Cantaloupe) and added a strip of DP and a die cut snowflake.
The sentiment here is from the Christmas Moments set which was release in October and is now also available in the Whimsy store!
