Christmas in July! Whimsy's newest release just hit the store shelves today. These cute and fun Matchbox Mice Quick Card Fronts making it easy to create Christmas cards in a flash. For my first card I combined the cute NEW Matchbox Mice Christmas Quick Card Fronts with the NEW Holly Frame die set. I cut out the large frame from white glitter paper. Then I used the smaller rectangular die to cut out the Quick Card panel to fit in the larger holly frame. I decorated my card using the included bow and holly dies. The sentiment is included with the Quick Card Fronts and I cut it out using one of the Quick Strips dies. On my second card I used the large Holly Frame die and the smaller rectangle die to create a frame. I used Distress inks, Distress Oxide inks and Distress Spritzes with an ink smooshing technique to ink the Holly frame. To add more texture I sprinkled the inked frame with white acrylic paint.

On the first one I combined the NEW QCF's Take Care Bears with the NEW Get Well Soon Word and Shadow die set and the Retro Mod die set that had been released in May. I used 3 different colored colored cardstock sheets - violet, purple and white as well as white glitter paper. A few Sparkle Gems finish off my card.

Hey friends! Check out the newest release from Whimsy Stamps πŸ’– There are so many awesome products! Here is some inspiration using several of the new products: I combined the cute NEW Panda Get Well Stamp set and matching No Fuss Masks (sold seperately) with the NEW Get Well Soon Word and Shadow die. In addition I also used the earlier released Slimline Big BooBoo die set and Harlequin stencil. Here is a closer look on the images and background. I stamped the images onto kraft mixed media paper with Versafine Clair Nocturn ink. I then used the No-Fuss Masks to cover the Pandas to create my background. I used the Harlequin Stencil and Bundles Sage oxide ink and added sprinkles with black and white acrylic paint. After removing the No-Fuss Masks I colored the Pandas using watercolor markers (Staedtler and Ohuhu).
