Here's my creation for today's showcase using Crissy's gorgeous Christmas Dreaming.  Gosh, what a darling image!  I didn't do it any justice, but you should see some of the Whimsy DT's creations using this image!  I've also used a few sentiments from the Seasonal Ornaments set and cut them out using the matching Ornaments Die Set.  I actually really love this set :)  It was so fun to cut out and string along the ornaments.  They worked just as I envisioned, which is always a thrill!

Sorry for the blurry photo, it looks much better in real life!

Stamps: Whimsy Stamps Christmas Dreaming and Seasonal Ornaments sentiment set; Coloring medium: Copics on Make it Colour Blending Card; Papers: Echo Park Season's Greetings 6x6 paper pad (available at Shop Pumpkin Spice, but currently sold out); Embellishments: twine, May Arts ribbons, WOC flower, Stickles; Tools: Whimsy Stamps Ornaments Die Set, Inkssentials ink blending tool, Spellbinder dies

Remember that the entire new release is available to buy right now from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favourites!

Also, Issue #4 of the Whimsy Stamps Inspirations Magazine will be released on October 19! Make sure to check it out because I guarantee that it'll knock your socks off!  We have more tutorials in there than we ever have AND not to reveal anything, but there's a great company team-up feature that you won't want to miss ;)
