Snowball Boy

Greetings!  I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and no one was caught on the "naughty list".  We are "hunkering" down now for colder weather, but alas no snow in sight anytime soon.  I could not resist making a "snowy" card.  My grandson turned 12 on the 27th and I always make him a masculine themed card for his birthday, so this card serves a dual purpose.

Here is my card for today's post, which can be found in the Whimsy and Stars Studio Shop titled Snowball Boy.  

Thanks for stopping by today!  Whimsy and Stars has rubber stamps and digis that will suit your every need.   We would love for you to visit our blog and show us your creations on our Facebook page!

And the Christmas challenge is still going on until December 30th. Play along for a free image to all players and a chance to win a $12 gift certificate.

Twinkling Angel

Hello everyone!  It's Karen from ScrappyCanuck Studios, and I am so excited to be a guest designer here at Whimsy and Stars Studio this term!  I have been cranking out the Christmas cards the last few days, and I thought I would share one that I created with the adorable stamp called "Twinkling Angel"

This cutie was coloured up with Copics in some traditional colours.  YG13 and YG17 were used on her dress, and R46 was the base red colour that I chose for some of the accents.  I used my cool greys for her hair, and her skin tone is a combination of E00, E11 and E13 with R20 for a touch of rose on her cheeks.

This little darling reminds me not only of all the bright and wonderful things about this season, but also the joy and celebration of this time of the year!  With all the preparations and things to do, it really is easy to forget what this time of year is all about!

I hope that your holiday season is filled with love and laughter and all the people you hold dear in your life! Merrry Christmas!

Snowball Boy

Hi, everybody! Suzanne here with a new card to share with you today, featuring Mabelle's "Snowball Boy" and "Christmas Wishes" digi stamps!

Sometimes, I get stumped with scenery papers in a paper pad. I'll use the solid parts on my cards, but I'm never quite sure how to work the scenery part in. So, I tried something new on this card! I printed the sentiment on white cardstock and created a snow bank for the bottom of the scene. Then, I trimmed the scenery panel and added my colored image on top and used foam tape on the back to give it some dimension.

You can pick up "Snowball Boy", "Christmas Wishes" or any of the digis in the Whimsy and Stars Studio store, you can get them all through instant download!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you're having a warm and cozy week!
