GDT and Some Exciting News

Happy Wednesday All!

It's been another busy day at our house. We had school drop off and then my daughter's ballet class and then the grocery store. I'm just getting in now! Hope you're having a great day!

I have a card to share and then some rather exciting news to spill as well! First, my card, which is for a guest design spot on Copic Colour Challenge! Not sure how it happened, but I had completely forgotten about my GDT with them, but thankfully Adele was very willing to wait for my card yesterday! Thanks Adele!

The color combo at Copic Colour Challenge this week is:

I ddin't have all of those colors in my Copic collection so I tried to match as well as I could and then added some of these colors with my papers and embellishments.

I've gone with a holiday card for this one and used the new BasicGrey Eskimo Kisses paper and buttons along with this cute Whiff of Joy image. The image was colored with Copics of course and then I added some flocking to her coat, hood, and boots to add some texture. Love that stuff!

I kept the layout simple and used my lace border punch and some satin ribbon across the middle and then framed my image with circle Nesties and an embossed piece of pink cardstock. The image is popped up on foam tape. I also added some faux stitching with a white gel pen.

Now, for my exciting news.....

I've been waiting quite a while to be able to share this wonderful news with you all and today I can finally do just that! Whimsy Stamps has a new illustrator and it's none other than the super duper talented Crissy Armstrong! We are just over the moon to have Crissy as a member of the Whimsy Stamps family, we are very fortunate! She has already created a collection of holiday stamps which will be released early next week! I adore the new images and I know you will too! Stay tuned for more info and our holiday release blog hop next week!

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great afternoon! Happy stamping! :)

Hi Denise! Your card is spectacular, as usual for you, ;-) Such a gorgeous color combo, and you did an awesome job playing with it here! I really love that super sweet image and the delicate layers you added to make her even prettier.
