24 Days of Christmas Event - Day 15

To thank you all for your continued support of Whimsy Stamps, the Whimsy design team are holding a fun Christmas event here on the blog in the run up to Christmas!

Everyday from the 1st to 24th of December, a member of the design team will be sharing a brand new Whimsy holiday creation here on the Whimsy blog. Included in these daily posts will be a LETTER. Visit us everyday, make a note of each letter and keep them safe. Once you have collected all 24 letters, you should be able to unscramble them and make a 4 word phrase. Email your phrase to by 31st of December 2013, and if you've guess correctly, you will be entered into the draw to win a fantastic GRAND PRIZE! But that's not all! We will also be running some fun SPOT PRIZES throughout the entire event. The prizes could be hidden here on the Whimsy blog or on our design team member's blogs, so be sure to leave a comment here and on our DT's blog posts each day to be in with a chance to Win!!
 Well it's bittersweet day for me, as it's my last post for Whimsy Stamps, I have decided to take a break from DT's. So here is as my creation for the 24 Days of Christmas which is sponsored by Denise Lynn, the owner at Whimsy Stamps. What a great way to thank all of the supportive Whimsy fans who follow the Whimsy Blog throughout the year. There are prizes galore--a grand prize and random prizes throughout. I started off using Early Espresso for my base which is a 5"x 7" finished card size. I then used 'TimberGrove' by Fancy Pants Designs for the rest. I added 3 layers which I offset the last 2. I cut out various snowflakes using Memory Box dies using light blue, white and dark brown metallic paper. I printed out the Penguins using shimmery white paper using the "Penguins are Present" by Crissy's Digi's. I coloured the image using my Prismacolor pencils and added some black flocking to the Penguin. I also added some white glitter to the pompom and to the face of the little penguins. I added a sentiment as well from Whimsy Stamps

I have entered this card in the following challenges:

Shelly's Images - TTT Challenge Theme - Welcome Winter

Wow it's been a really long time since I made a card for Shelly's Images but life has been hectic!! This month's challenge is a Winter Theme- Make Winter themed projects and include a snowflake. Oh Boy is it cold here in Alberta, right now it is -17C with a windchill of -29C. So I'm staying warm and working on my Christmas Cards. So here is my card, I started off using a dark blue metallic paper for my base which is a 5"x 7" finished card size. I then used Bo Bunny's collection called 'Woodland Winter' for the rest. I added 3 layers and then added 2 acrylic snowflakes that I found at the Dollar Store. I then I add Tim Holtz alcohol ink to colour the snowflakes using Silver, Stream and Denim. One of the snowflakes I added some white glue and sprinkled on Tim Holtz Distress Glitter Tumbled Glass and Faded Jeans. I then printed out the "Snow Sign" by Shelly's Images twice onto shimmery white paper and then I inserted the sentiment 'Happy Holidays'  into the sign. I then colored the sign using my Prismacolor pencils. I popped up the sign onto the second sign using pop up dots. I then added some DecoArt's Snow-Tex onto the sign using a palette knife and while it was still wet sprinkled on Tim Holtz Distress Glitter Tumbled Glass and Faded Jeans. I added some silver ribbon along with a bow and added a white snowflake brad to the bow.Pin It Now!
