Clearly Whimsy October Blog Hop | Sweet Christmas

Hello there,  I have the pleasure of Guest Designing for Clearly Whimsy Stamps again this month for their October release :) The peeks started yesterday by the DT and I will be joining in for the next two days of blog hops. The products will be available to purchase from the Whimsy Stamps Store and selected Whimsy Stamps retailers on Saturday.

I have the pleasure of kick starting the hop today and I am using the new super cute Gingerbread House stamp set. It is a great set filled with houses and extra items; for today I wanted to share how you can use one of the smaller images on a card.


I have started by taking a small card base (3.75x5") and stamped the candy cane image on top using HA Red Royal ink. I have then gone over these using a clear Wink of Stella brush pen for that added sparkle. The sentiment has been stamped on a strip of cardstock using black and red ink and added to the base with foam tape. I have added a little WOS to the 'sweet' portion of the sentiment too. I have then finished off with a few sparkly Doodlebug Sprinkles.


SUPPLIES:


The next stop on the hop is Heather Pulvirenti. Whimsy Stamps have hidden a prize of a $15 gift certificate at one of the stops on the hop today. The winner will be drawn from one of the comments left on the designers blogs today, so be sure to visit everyone and leave a comment to be entered in to the draw.

Here is a list of everyone sharing today:
