Clearly Whimsy Stamps Release Day 3


Welcome to Day 3 of the Clearly Whimsy October 2014 Stamps Release!

Today we have some more great sets to share with you!  All of the new stamps & dies that we are sharing are available now in the Whimsy storeMy post today is all about the holidays.  Since yesterday was Halloween I am going to start there! 

Jen Carter 11.1 Scandi Christmas, Penguin Fun

When I was playing with the Penguin Fun dies I noticed that one of them looked an awful lot like a ghost.  I love getting more bang for my buck so I took that die and stamped the penguin eyes onto it.  I also used a light gray copic marker to outline the ghost.  I used the new Scandi Christmas stamp set to decorate the tag.  I stamped one of the borders included in the set repeatedly in Halloween colors, some of which are covered up by the ghosts.  I cut the "sweet" with the Sweet as Candy Large Word Die.

Now moving on to Christmas...

Jen Carter 11.1 Scandi Christmas, Christmas Die

I love making non-traditional Christmas cards with non-traditional Christmas colors.  I love celebrating the true meaning of Christmas, but I just get so tired of red & green.  I like mixing it up a little!  So that is what I did with this card.  I used one of the border strips from Scandi Christmas and embossed each row in a different color.

I added some vellum, attaching it by wrapping the backs around the backside of the card mat.  I then attached the beautiful Christmas Large Word die that I cut out of red glitter paper.  I embossed the 'Merry" from the Scandi stamp set and then added some groupings of colorful sequins to match the embossed stripes.


Along with this release Clearly Whimsy is also announcing a new challenge blog called ShowCASe Your Style Challenge blog with the first challenge starting TODAY!!  Here's a little about the challenge: "Our new challenges will be dedicated to Clean & Simple stamping and card making and is brought to you by Clearly Whimsy Stamps.

Today's challenge is to make a card using 3 of the items from the tic-tac-toe grid.  


For the card above, I chose to use the sentiment, red & emboss squares on my card!  We'd LOVE to have you play along!
