Day 7 Countdown to Christmas - Cool Ride

Hello!  It's my turn today to share a project for the Whimsy Stamps Countdown to Christmas.  

I adored Crissy Armstrong's carousel horses when they were released in rubber a few years back, so was tickled pink to see this one was available in digi format.

Along with this fabulous Cool Ride digi, I have used the Doodled Doily Die and Winter Wishes paper pad.  I finished the card off with some glittered leaves, a chipboard sentiment which I heat embossed for extra bling and flowers.

Day 6 of the Whimsy Stamps Countdown to Christmas

Hello Whimsy Friends and welcome to Day 6 of the Whimsy Stamps Countdown to Christmas.
 
It's Iris here today. December 6th / Saint Nicholas Day is a special day in Germany (and other European countries of course) where I'm from originally. We celebrate this day in remembrance of  historical Saint Nicholas also called Nicolas of Myra or Bishop of Myra and his legendary habit of secret gift-giving.

Usually kids will get boots filled with candy, fruit, nuts and small gifts. We always celebrated in the evening of the 6th when I was a child but some already had their boots filled in the night from the 5th to the 6th depending on which part from Germany you are from.

This is why I picked Santa's Glee today for my card. I thought it's the perfect image for today :-) He is available in the Whimsy store as digital stamp from the Crissy Armstrong collection. 


I also used two dies from the Whimsy Shapeology collection: Merry - large word die and  Hand Stitched Borders. I kept my card simple to have the focus on the image. Only three small dots from the Christmas Cheer Enamel Dots and a red sequin embellish my card.
 
Here is a list of Copic colors I've used:

Santas Cloth
Red: R22, R24, R46, R59
White: C5, C3, B41, C1, C00
Shoes and Belt: C10, C8, C6, C4 B41
 
Santas Face and Hair:
Skin: E000, E00, E11, R02
Hair: W6, W4, W2, W0
 
Other
Santas List: E50, E53 T2
Pencil: E57, E50
Outline: B000, B00
Thanks for stopping buy today and make sure you come back tomorrow for more inspiration.

Crafty hugs,

Iris

Day 2 of Whimsy Countdown to Christmas

Hello, welcome to day two of Whimsy's countdown to Christmas. The design teams will be featuring a new project every day. I know you will find lots of inspiration!

I made a card featuring Whimsy's beautiful papers and the geometric snowflake die.
I started by making a panel using two of the papers found in the Winter Wishes paper pad.  I cut a geometric snowflake and adhered most of it onto the panel.  I covered it with sparkle using a Spectrum Noir clear sparkle marker for some shine.  I cut Christmas large word die twice, once from brushed silver cardstock and layered them together.  I stamped a sentiment companion on a vellum Sentiment Banner, and then adhered my sentiment pieces on the snowflake panel.  I adhered the panel on a white card base, and glued on some sequins last. 
 
Thanks for stopping by!
