Candy - Doily Dies

I have another give away, I loved these doily dies so much I bought them twice!  So I thought I'd give the second set away to one of my followers.  If you'd like to be in the draw please just leave a comment and I'll draw a winner mid-week.

Penguin with Present

My grandson loves penguins, LOVES them – as in totally crazy for them and even sponsors a penguin.  So whenever I stumble upon a penguin stamp I have to have it (as you do).  This little sweetie Christmas Penguin from the newest Whimsy Stamps release is just too stinking cute.

How fab is the Joy sentiment?  I used the Brush Script Lower Case Alpha die set that was also released by Whimsy Stamps this month.


This was a doddle to colour, it really was.  I used copic markers (colours used in the order they are listed):
Penguin: C1, 0, 00; C9, 7, 5; YR24, 21, 30
Hat: C3, 10, 0, 00; BG49, 57, 45
Present: BG49, 57, 45; YG67, 63, G20


The papers are from a really old Basic Grey pad, I’ve had it for years.  The snowflake doily die is a Marianne Design die.

Holly Mice

It’s gone Christmas card crazy in my house.  So many fabulous Christmas stamps and digis out this past couple of months I have great difficulty in choosing which ones to use first.  This sweet little digi stamp by Di’s Digi Stamps called Holly Mice was begging to be coloured.  These little mice have a serious awww factor ♥


Coloured with copic markers and a black pencil
Mice: W3, 1, 0, 00
Jumpers: YG67, 63, G20, E42, 41, 40; R59, 46, 14
Berries: RV99, R59, 46, 14
Holly Leaves: BG99, G29, 24, 21, 20


The papers are a mix of Bo Bunny and K&Co that I’ve had for yonks.


The sentiment is by Crafters Companion, the large poinsettia was in the sale bin at The Range after Christmas last year.  Needless to say I bought a basket full …. as you do.  I think the picks were reduced to something silly like 50p each.  I love me a bargain Smile

Wee Candle Light

It’s the last day of the September Whimsy Stamps release, so don’t forget to pop across to join in the fun over in the Whimsy Stamps and Inspirations Facebook group and hopefully win a prize.

Wee Candle Light takes the stage today, together with the gorgeous new Christmas Cheer Designer Paper Pad, matching Christmas Cheer Enamel Dots, Build a Poinsettia die set , Snowflake dies …. all released this week.


I coloured up the little snowman with copic markers and just a light touch of black pencil:
Snowman: W3, 1, 0, 00
Waistcoat & leaves: YG97, 95, 93, G20
Hat and Scarf: R59; 56, E04; E43, 41, 40
Birds: E15, 13, 00
Candle,  berries and bell : C3, 10, 0, 00;; YR24, 21, Y11


I made the poinsettia flowers using the new Build a Poinsettia die set and paper from the Christmas Cheer pad, then went crazy with the white glitter to give a frosty look to the card.


I really love this new release, I had great difficulty in deciding which goodies to use first.  That’s a total win for me Open-mouthed smile

Bauble shaped card

It’s day 2 of the September Whimsy Stamps release, with the party over in the Whimsy Stamps and Inspirations Facebook group still going strong. 

I decided to make a bauble shaped card for a change, I’ve not attempted one before this so it was a make it up as I went along kind of card.


The bottom layer is from the It’s a Party designer paper pad, the top layer is stamped using the new Winter Afghan background stamp and Soft Sky ink pad.


I made the poinsettias using the fabulous new Build a Poisettia die set, and popped some glittered snowflakes from the new Snowflake dies 


I really loved making this card and need to get more done for Christmas.  My friend has already claimed this one to change up into an ornament for her tree Open-mouthed smile
