Christmas cards galore

It’s release day at My Whimsical Little World, and I am so excited to share three new digis with you today!  I was shopping this weekend and was surprised to be surrounded by Christmas music, but with about 5 weeks to go, I have to admit that I am already thinking about the season too!  In fact, I dare say that I now have all my Christmas cards done and ready to go!


Anyway, I digress!  First up is a fun and bright card, and perhaps one of my favorite of the season!  Called Santa on Skates, this digi is perfect for your Christmas cards and gifts!


For you traditional spirits, Paola has drawn up a beautiful digi called Nutcracker/   I love the amazing details on this image.


Finally, this digi is called Holly Jolly Christmas Cupcake.   I hand-lettered the sentiment on the cupcake, but it looks just as great without!  I decided to use a clean and simple design for this card as the Doodlebug paper for the backing was quite graphic and busy.

Oh, speaking of supplies, all of the images were coloured up with Copics to match the Doodlebug paper.  The ribbon is all from May Arts, and all of the sentiments were hand lettered with my handy-dandy Sakura marker.  Paola from My Whimsical Little World is doing a great giveaway right now, so make sure you pop over to the Facebook group to check it out!

So there you have it – a few new Christmas images to get you  through the season!  Tell me – how are your cards coming along (or do you even send any)?

Thanks for stopping by!











Favourite Halloween movie anyone?!

kimmie-frontOne of the things I remember most about Halloween as a kids was the Charlie Brown Halloween special about the Great Pumpkin that would show up on tv the Monday before Halloween.  There was something about Linus’s faith in the Great Pumpkin that I always thought was quite something – especially in the face of all the doubters!

kimmie-closeupSo, when I first saw this cute stamp from Kraftin’ Kimmie’s “Hey There Punkin'” set, I couldn’t help but think about that movie.  And Lulu, perched behind that pumpkin looks just like she is pondering the great mysteries of the Great Pumpkin this Halloween!

Lulu was coloured up with Copics, and I picked colours to match the cute Doodlebug paper.  For a bit of texture, I also threw some corduroy ribbon on the card from May Arts – somehow corduroy scream fall to me!  The sentiment was hand lettered – a quote from the Great Pumpkin of course!

Well, since it is Wednesday, it is challenge time at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps.  We want EVERYONE to be able to play along so your submission can use ANY stamp and can be any theme, any style, any design and it can be a card, a scrapbook page, an altered item….you name it!! It must be a NEW creation and you can enter over on the Kraftin’ Kimmie blog until November 4th at midnight! At the end of the month one random winner will be chosen from all the submissions for the whole month and will receive a $20 Gift Card to the shop!

2 and a half more days until Halloween!  Thanks for stopping by!


Black Cat Challenge

Halloween week continues here at SCS, and today, I have a cute little card to share with you!



This little cute duo is a new stamp from Tiddy Inks called Couple of Fall Cuties. I thought it would be the prefect image to use for this week’s challenge which is called “Black Cat”  If you haven;t been over to the Tiddly Inks blog today, you really need to check out all the great creations by the design team for this challenge, especially if “cute Halloween” is your “thing” (it is definitely mine).



I coloured up these cuties with Copics, and while my kitty did turn out more grey than black, let’s just say that she looks good for her age!  The paper is from Doodlebug, and that great ribbon is from May Arts.  Oh, and as has become my tradition, the sentiment was hand lettered.

I hope you will consider joining us for the challenge!  While Black Cat would probably work for a lot of Halloween projects, there are so many cute cat images over in the store that would work for any theme!  We always love seeing you work so link up!

Thanks for stopping by!



Let it snow – but only on paper!


Halloween is next week, and that means that there is snow in the forecast for Calgary so this week’s Kraftin’ Kimmie “Let it Snow” challenge is perfect (although I am glad that I have at least a few more days of Fall).  This week our hostess is Krafty Girl, KIMMIE so create a card, scrapbook page or altered item with a Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamp or any other stamp and be sure to use the idea of snow, snow embellishments, images with snow, fluffy stuff, white stuff etc. to get you going!!! 

I decided to use Lexi from the band new “Candy Cane Kisses” set.  I coloured her up with Copics, and while there are no “direct” snow images in the image, Lexi looked like she was dressed for a blustery day (and anyway, she was so cute I just wanted an excuse to use her).  I also added some Diamond Stickles in and around her feet (backed with a bit of B41 and B45) to give the illusion of ice or snow.  I really love that this card feels warm in spite of the snow and Christmas theme!

Don;t forget to check out the wonderful creations by our Krafty Girls and special Krafty Guests featuring this week’s challenge!! We’re sure you’ll be inspired!! Then join us, play along and you could WIN!!

Happy kraftin’!!
