And here's a little inspiration for my post today using the 

I stamped the stocking and holly with Memento black ink so I could use my Copics to color them, Then I fussy cut both of them out.


I added some red bling as the holly berries and popped the stocking up with foam tape for dimension.  The stitching on the left side of the card is from a retired die but you could use a stitched rectangle or border stamp too.


To complete the card I die cut the Holiday Words from some gold cardstock and glued them down, then mounted everything onto a red card base.   Have a great day!

  St. Nicholas  Holiday Word Die Set

Cute Cupid meets Holiday Occasions

It was a perfect match pairing up the LOVE sentiment from the new Holiday Occasions set (which was November's CAS set and is now for general sale) and the Cute Cupid set which is, well, cute;).  Hope you enjoy today's post using both of these newly released sets from Whimsy Stamps.


To start off with I used a Sizzix brick embossing folder for the background.  The hearts are a really old sizzix die too but the Whimsy Stamps Stitched Hearts Dies match even better and they are on sale right now too! 


I stamped the LOVE sentiment from the Holiday Occasions set with SU! real red ink, the wings and halo were stamped with Memento black ink and colored using Copic markers.


The bottom sentiment is stamped on a plain white strip of cardstock with Versafine black ink which is by far my favorite ink for sentiments.  Did you know Whimsy is now carrying Versafine and Memento inks you can find them HERE.


I used the matching Cute Cupid die set to cut out the wings and halo and popped up the heart and halo with foam tape for dimension.

Christmas Memories Trio

A couple of weeks ago I did three posts using the Christmas Memories stamp set for 3 quick and easy cards that took only 6 steps or less to make.  Here they are all together displayed on my table, I thought the photo was festive so I thought I'd share it with you today.  
Hope you like it and hope you have a great holiday.

Christmas Memories

Yay it's Chocolate Day!

YAY! It's Whimsy Stamps new release for December and it's chock full of LOVE and chocolate!  To kick things off I have some bonbons for your delight using the new Crazy for Chocolate stamp set. I hope you ENJOY...


I stamped the bonbons with Memento black ink and colored them with copic markers then cut them out using the matching Crazy for Chocolate dies
The bonbon wrappers (could also be Reese's cups if colored differently) were stamped with SU! Basic Grey ink and cut out with the dies too.


The sentiment was stamped with Versafine Vintage Sepia.  I used an ancient, (like 20 year old) Sizzix scallop frame die to cut the frame and mounted onto an (ancient) SU! creamy caramel card base.  


When I originally thought out this card I was going to use a transparency to make it look like a candy store window but I totally forgot about it until after I had everything adhered.  oh well, DER de DER!

Snowman Tidings to you and Yours

I just love snowmen for winter/holiday cards and this new Snowman Tidings set from Whimsy Stamps has 2 cute ones along with some trees and accessories, you can see a bunch more samples from the creative team HERE.  I hope you like this little guy...


I stamped everything using Memento Black ink so I could safely color everything using my Copic markers.  It's important to use the right ink that works with the coloring medium you've chosen otherwise it can ruin your project and/or your Copics - yikes!


I love pink and grey so that's what I decided to go with on this card, I think the blue ice/snow/lake (trees in a lake??) go nicely with the pink and grey too.  Once I colored everything I used the Snowman Tidings matching die set to cut everything out and stamped the sentiment using Versafine Black ink (my favorite for sentiments).  


Be sure to check out Whimsy's new release for December - there's some super cute stuff coming out on December 7th!

Joy to the World

Here's another card using the Peace, Love Joy stamp set, I thought the dove was just screaming for the stained glass technique.


For the stained glass technique:
Stamp your image with Stazon ink onto a transparency sheet then turn it over to the back side. 
Add a clear drying liquid adhesive (I used SU! crystal effects) to only one section (at a time) of the image and generously sprinkle on your first color of glitter


Dump the remaining white glitter back into its container then add the glue to a different section of the image and use a different color glitter.  

Do this process until the entire image is covered and set aside to dry.  There's no way to speed up the drying time because a heat tool would melt the transparency but it actually dries pretty quickly. 
For this project I used only two colors of glitter but of course you can use however many you want.  


While waiting for the dove to dry I stamped the branch and sentiments and added a couple of 
Once the dove was dry I fussy cut it out and adhered it with glue dots behind the darker blue glitter portions and along the black stamped line.  
I love how the branch design peeks through the stained glass.


It's really sparkly and pretty in real life, I'd love to see your version of the stained glass technique...
