Christmas in July

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.

Dream Big! & Yummy Cupcakes!

Hey Friends! Aren't Ellies just adorable? This little guy is from the recently released Elephantastic clear stamp set by Dustin Pike for Whimsy Stamps. I colored this cutie with my Derwent Inktense Blocks and Inktense Pencils and a waterbrush. I kept the design simple. I used the Sprinkles Scallops Rectangle die set to cut out my cardstock layers. To make the image pop I cut out the middle layer from a pink  sheet of the 6x6 Mix 'n Match 2 papers. The sentiment was stamped on two little tags that I cut out using the Bookmark & Tags die set. I used burlap string to attach them to the sheer pink  organza ribbon. 3 pink confetti sequins are the only embellishments in addition to the organza ribbon.  Here are two more cards I created using the Creative Cupcakes Quick Card Fronts (QCF's). All our QCF's make for fast, fun and easy cards! These cupcake QCFs are especially yummy and versatile for many occasions like birthdays, anniversaries etc. Just add som
