Whimsy Stamps - 12 Days of Christmas - Day 4

Happy Wednesday!! 
Did you hear yet?? We're having a "12 Days of Christmas" Celebration over at Whimsy Stamps with new Holiday projects from the Design Team and fun prizes to win too.


Every day from 13th December to 24th December, a member or members of the design team will be sharing a brand new Whimsy holiday creation on the Whimsy blog.  Included in these daily posts will be a LETTER.  Visit the blog every day, make a note of each letter and keep them safe.  Once you have collected all 12 letters, you should be able to unscramble them and make a special 3 word phrase.  Email your guess to by 31st December 2015, and if you've guessed correctly, you will be entered into the draw to win a fantastic GRAND PRIZE! 

But that's not all!  We will also be running some fun SPOT PRIZES throughout the entire event.  The prizes could be hidden here on the Whimsy blog or on our design team members blogs, or even on some of the Whimsy artists blogs, so be sure to leave a comment here and on the other blog posts each day to be in with a chance to win!

Today it's my turn along with the very talented Vicki to post our creations to the Whimsy blog, and this is what I created. 

  I won't bore you with details how I made it, I simply followed this tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers. Then attached an easel style card to the top. 

The beautiful Snowflake Fairy Princess stamp is one of Crissy Armstrong designs for Whimsy Stamps. Snowflake sentiment is from the set Winter Letter Seals. I covered my drawer with designer paper by Bo Bunny and used some snowflakes to embellish. The hardware I used on the front is from an old SU kit.

Above is a closeup of the beautiful stamp. I used mainly copics for coloring, but added some shading on her hair with a Faber Castell polychromos pencil. 

 This little "drawer box card" is perfect for a little gift like jewelry or you can put $$ or a gift card inside. 

You can find the Whimsy products I used here:

Snowflake border die 

Today is also the start of the new Whimsy Stamps challenge, and the theme is "Snowflakes". So if you're up for a challenge why not join us for another chance at a Whimsy prize?
