Penguins Carry The Tree

Here's one of my Christmas cards so far.   I stamped "Penguins Carry The Tree" onto hot press water colour paper with Versafine Onyx Black ink.  I let the ink dry, then painted with Twinkling H2O's.  I used Snow Tex (from Michael's) for the snow, then while it was still wet I added Twinklets Diamond Dust (crushed glass).  Thanks for lookin!

A Freebie Image! And A Contest To Win Rubber!

Peeps, it is Day 10 of our 12 Days Of Christmas Event at Whimsy Stamps! 
I'm involved today, doing 2 things: 
1) You can sign up for a draw for your chance to win the red rubber stamp from Whimsy Stamps, "Christmas Pup In Stocking
2) You can grab a freebie image from me, "Penguin Santa Claus"
Here is what the Christmas Pup stamp could look like, once it is all coloured up:
It comes with a sentiment and the paw print stamp too!

Christmas Pup in Stocking
I drew a little Penguin Santa Claus image in black and white, and I would like to offer a digital copy of that image to you, free of charge, just to say "thank-you for supporting me and Whimsy Stamps throughout the year."   I printed it, coloured it up with my Copic markers, and used it on a card, just to show you the possibilities: 
If you wish to get in on the draw for Pup In Stockings rubber stamp, just add your name to the Inlinkz thingy at the bottom of this post. 
If you would like your own copy of the digital line drawing of Penguin Santa Claus which you could download, print and colour, all you have to do is go to either the Whimsy Stamps and Inspiration page on Facebook, or, to my page on Facebook.  It can be found HERE. You must join the page in order to grab it though!  This freebie is a limited time offer and it will no longer be available after December 31, so don't miss it!
I will draw a name shortly after January 1st and announce the winner of the rubber stamp at that time, so come back and see if you've won!
If we aren't chatting before then,
Now, go add your name by clicking on the blue link button below - no need to have a blog!

New Whimsy Product That Saves YOU $$

Who wants to save money on card making supplies? Who wants to get MORE for their craft dollar? Whimsy Stamps is launching a new product at the store - MONTHLY CARD KITS!  Click HERE to check them out. The first two are Hallowe'en/Fall themed kits. The kits includes a rubber stamp, a Whimsy Shapeology metal die for die cutting, pre-stamped sentiments, card stock, designer paper AND embellishments! You save a TON of money by buying your supplies all in this one kit! This is practically giving the products away! If you were to purchase the die, the stamp and the designer paper separately, you would easily pay about 28.50. BUT in this kit, you will get all three of those products PLUS the added embellishments and pre-stamped sentiments AND PAY LESS FOR IT! The kit is only 23.99! So right off the top you save 4.51 AND you get the added papers and embellishments PLUS an instruction sheet to make your cards! Getting these kits is a no-brainer. You don't want to miss out, because there are a limited amount of kits and once they're gone, they're gone. Get them while you can - get them as gifts for your fellow card makers too! What an amazing new product! Way to go Whimsy Stamps!!
Check out THIS VIDEO where Vicki demonstrates the first monthly card kits and shows you what you can make with it.

Here's my hand-coloured version of Christmas Bunny Stockings.  I used Copic markers:
I will use it on a card for sure.  I just love the little scamp at the end who decided to explore the stocking head-first.  He must be the artist.  ;-)

New Release!

Hi Peeps! Good news! Whimsy is making it easier for shoppers on their website! They are gradually changing their black and white image displays to coloured versions of each stamp. It will be easier for you to envision the possibilities when you see the way colour brings them to life. The colour is also a suggestion as well, so that you can either copy the same colours you see, or, use them as a jumping off point for your own colour decisions. I have just begun the task of colouring all 148 of my images for them, and I wanted to show you some of what I have so far. These are three of my newly released images found at Whimsy HERE.
There is also a blog hop going on right now, and if you get this message on time (before noon on Jan 16, EST) you still have a chance to do the hop and get yourself entered into the draw for prizes!  Just go HERE to start hopping. Thanks for visiting today!
