Special Guest - Katie Brooks

Happy Monday!  It's Katie back with you today!  I really love some of the latest Whimsy releases; they are fantastic.  When I first saw the Frosty Wishes set and the characters' cute expressions, I was all in!

Here is how I made this card: 

  • I started by stamping my images onto Copic-friendly paper.  I spent a good amount of time coloring them just so and added highlights with a gel pen.  Then I fussy cut them out. 
  • I came back in and stamped the sentiment on the sign after I had colored it. 
  • Next, I picked some patterned paper that I thought would work well with the images.  This selection is from Simple Stories; I loved the different-colored flakes and how they pulled out the colors from the images. 
  • I got out some hillside dies from my stash and used them to cut various bits of white paper.  I used my Cool Shadow Copic (BG10- which is also on my snowman) to add a little color to the hills. 
  • I mounted the various layers of snowbanks with foam tape.  
  • Then I slipped my images where I wanted them in the layers. 
  • Lastly, I added some embellishments to add a little extra sparkle. 

This snowman, his face, it just makes me happy.  I kinda wanna step into the scene and hang out with him and that cute penguin. They are so happy to see each other!

Here is one last look.  I hope you love it as much as I do!  A big thank you to Whimsy Stamps for letting me be a guest designer this month.  They have such cute products and such a nice team; it has been tons of fun!  THANK YOU!
