Christmas Shaker Tags

Hi crafty friends! Today I want to share a set of Christmas Shaker Tags. This was one of my projects from the class I was teaching at the Whimsy Craft Retreat early October.

To create the tags I used the largest of the Stitched Tag dies and the smallest die from the Handstitched Nested Rectangles. Instead of foam tape I cut a tag frame from fun foam and adhered it with score tape. I used the  Oh What Fun clear set and matching Oh What Fun dies to create the stamped elements and sentiments. Coloring was done with Copics.
I also glued some sequins from the filling to the tag background. This way if the tags are standing upright they are not all falling down to the bottom of the tag. There will always be some visible through the shaker window.

Whimsy Stamps November Release - Sneak Peek Day 4

Happy Satruday! Have you been enjoying the Whimsy Stamps release week so far? Well we have two more stamp sets to share with you today.

We're starting today with a new rubber image from Whimsy artist Crissy Armstrong called Whatzup, Dog. Don't you just love the look on his cute little face?

Last month's free CAS stamp set, Snowman Tidings, will now be available for purchase starting on November 7th.  We are also introducing coordinating dies for the set this month to allow for more fun design possibilities.

Here is my creation using both, the stamps and dies:

The background was embossed using an older cuttlebug folder. The snowflake is from the Snow Flurry clear set and cut out using the matching Snow Flurry die set. I stamped the snowflake with VersaMagic and embossed it using Rangers Enchanted Gold embossing powder. It has such a nice and subtle glitz to it.

Whimsy Stamps November Release - Sneak Peek Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of the November Release Countdown.  We have some fun products to share with you today. We are starting off with the newest rubber image from Whimsy artist Krista Heij-Barber - Sledding Time.

We are also introducing our newest flower die, the Hellebore flower.  You can pair it with regular patterned paper, card stock or use the amazing Foamiran that is available in the Whimsy store.

For my inspiration today I made a little gift box and embellished it with a Helebore flower made from Foamiran

I used white Foamiran  for my flower, added a berry flower center and dipped the finished flower in super fine white glitter. I used the WRMK gift box punch board to create my little gift box. The base is made from pink cardstock and I added some Christmas DP on all sides. The sentiment is from the Holiday Mini Sentiments set.
