Rocking Horse card

So much of this card is from digital images from Whimsy! 



That's a lot of digi stuff! 
Then I used these dies: Poinsettia is :https://whimsystamps.com/products/new-build-a-poinsettia-die
Coloured with Copics. Thanks for looking!

Star Of Bethlehem


I used Star Of Bethlehem digital stamp from Whimsy. 
Also a digital sentiment from their Christmas Time Sentiments. 
Papers are from Whimsy's Christmas Cheer pack and Winter Wishes pack (not digital). 
The image is coloured with Copics.  The sky background was done with Copics as well - not an easy blend to get.  I added some stars using a white gel pen.  
The star was hand cut. 
Thanks for looking!

Cool Ride Carousel

This is Cool Ride, now a digital image sold at Whimsy! Papers and sentiment also from the digital section at Whimsy.  Christmas Time Digital Sentiments
Also used: Build A Poinsettia die, Holly Vine die and Snowflake Dies from Whimsy. 
I coloured Cool Ride with Copics.  I also used a couple of embossing folders for two of the white layers. 

December 1st Digital Release!!

Also used Jolly Holiday digital paper and
Sentiment from Merry And Bright, also a digital set!
I coloured the image with Copics and used a white gel pen for some falling snow.  Check out all the newly released digital images, sentiments and papers shown below!

DIGI's ARE BACK - DAY 2!!

The long-anticipated Day is here!! Welcome to Whimsy Stamps Digital Shop Grand Re-Opening! (Day 2)
Whimsy has a selection of images, sentiments and papers that are now available to purchase, download and use immediately!
This is my creation using my new digital image, "N'Ice Friends Two", digital papers from my "Snowdrops" set, "Snowflake Dies", "Build A Poinsettia Die", "Holly Vine Die" and the digital sentiment from "Christmas Time Sentiments". 
I coloured "N'Ice Friends Two" with Copics and used a white gel pen to create the falling snow. 
I have a second project to share with you today as well.  Here is my card using "Gus On Christmas" digital image.  The sentiment is a bonus file that you will get when you purchase "Gus"!  I also used digital papers from my new digi paper set, "I Dream in Christmas", as well as some Enamel Dots from the Winter Wishes set, and the same snowflake die set and poinsettia set as the card above (links above). 
I coloured "Gus" using Copics. 
I used crushed glass glitter on the poinsettia. I love how that looks!

Digital images are great because you can flip images, use the computer to “mask” and combine images and backgrounds, and re-size everything to suit your personal projects before you print them off. Please read the Terms Of Use with each product purchased for all the details. 
Digital images are so easy to use. And they can be printed again and again, as many times as you like for your own personal crafting needs! What a bonus, especially when it comes to patterned paper - no more need to hoard a paper stash - once you have purchased and downloaded Whimsy’s Digital paper packs, you can print off your favourite sheets as many times as you like! What’s more, you can customize the size of the sheet you are printing (there’s less wasted paper that way). How about that, crafters! Surely it doesn’t get much better than that! 
Look at what’s new at Whimsy! 
Whimsy will be releasing new digital products on the first of every month, so mark your calendars and be sure to join the release party on FaceBook where we will have games and award prizes to randomly drawn players. In fact, get on over to FB where the party has just started (Nov 1, 12 PM EST)! If you play the games, you could win something Whimsy-cal. The more you play, the greater your chances. (Exciting, right!?) But don’t leave just yet!
You have just got to see what the rest of the Whimsy Digi Designer Divas, and our Very Special Guest Zoe from Make It Crafty have created with the digi’s. We are showing off our gorgeous cards for you over the next two days, November 1st and 2nd. Go visit each blog to see what magic each Diva has cooked up. Your eyes will bug out of your head and your jaw will hit the floor. You’ve been fairly warned. Jussayin! 
Here are today's makes:

DIGI's ARE BA-AACK!!!

The long-anticipated Day is here!! Welcome to Whimsy Stamps Digital Shop Grand Re-Opening!
Whimsy has a selection of images, sentiments and papers that are now available to purchase, download and use immediately!
I have a couple of creations to show you today, using some of the digital images, papers and sentiments now available at Whimsy! 
This is my creation using "Jingle Bell Ride" (digital image), "Christmas Time Digital Sentiments", "I Dream In Christmas" digital papers, "Holly Vine Die", and "Build A Poinsettia Die"
I coloured Jingle Bell Ride using Copic markers. 
And for my second project, I used "Horsey Holidays" digital image, "Christmas Time Digital Sentiments", "Snowdrops" digital papers, and "Snowflake Dies".
I coloured Horsey Holidays using Copic markers, and used a white gel pen on the snowflakes.  In the close-up, now I can see I needed another coat, as you can see the printed snowflakes showing through.  oopsie! 
I added Snow Tex for the snow and sprinkled glitter on it while it was still wet. (both fake snow and glitter found at Michael's).

Doggie's Little Behind


Hi Peeps! Here's a CAS (Clean And Simple) card I did for my daughter's birthday.  Yup, I have been late with cards lately.  Just a lot of stuff getting in the way of crafting time!  I think you know what that's like.  Anyway, I coloured this "Doggie's Little Behind" stamp using Copic markers and had fun with the purple background using the zero blender to remove bits of colour.  
Thanks for looking!
