Whimsy Stamps October Release Day 4 & Giveaway


Welcome to Day 4 of the Whimsy Stamps October Release! 


Can you believe it's October already??? Where did the year go.....and it's time for Christmas cards again. But that's a fun and easy chore with the super cute holiday images from Whimsy Stamps! Click here to go shopping if you haven't yet already.

On my card today I am showcasing one of the newly released Marina Fedotova Christmas fairies - NEW Christmas Sprite.  Isn't she adorable? She is definitely one of my favorites from this release!



I colored Christmas Sprite primarily with Copics but added some details with pencils afterwards (a list of all Copics and pencils used is below). I kept the card simple. I didn't want to draw the attention away from this sweet image. Besides some snowflakes made with Nuvo Crystal Drops Simply White I only added 3 die cut evergreen trees. I thought they complement the image perfectly. They were die cut using the NEW Evergreen Tree Dies Set by Crissy Armstrong.  These trees are awesome and so super versatile. I love the style and that they do not have too many details which makes them perfect for CAS cards! This is a set of 4 different dies, to create 4 different tree shapes. The sentiment is from the NEW You're My Jolly sentiment set.

This is so wonderful you are doing a giveaway. How sweet of Denise! You always amaze me with your design style, it is perfect and your coloring is truly inspiring!
My favorite release hands down, Is "Holly Jolly My Butt" It was the first I colored and it took me forever to figure out what sentiment to use! Deb Davis and I must be on the same crazy train because our humor is exactly the same! xoxo Dee and I am so happy you are giving the tree die to one our Whimsy Fans! That is super special. Note: My comment does not count. Mwah!

What a truly lovely image coloured perfectly. Thank-you for being generous in offering a giveaway for the trees. My favourite is Christmas Sprite simply because it reminds me we are all children still in the eyes of Santa waiting for that magical moment!
