Whimsy Stamps Cocoa

Hi Whimsy Fans,

today is the last day of the November Whimsy StampsLink Showcase. I hope you have enjoyed the daily mini hops and good luck to all of you hopping along! Remember these stamps and dies are all available for purchase at Whimsy Stamps right now along with all your other Whimsy favorites.

Don't forget today is also the last day to hop along, for a chance to win one of the newly released stamps. But like before you only have 24 hours to enter for a chance to win. All winners will be announced sometimes tomorrow at the Whimsy Stamps Inspirations Blog.


For today I decided to make a little pocket card that holds a hot cocoa packet. The stamp I used is called Served with Love from the Crissy Armstrong collection.

Photobucket

To make this card I followed the tutorial on Splitcoaststampers by the super talented Beate.

For the image I did some paper piecing and coloring with derwent coloursoft pencils blended with baby oil. Glitter was added to the snow and snowflake centers.
The snowflakes were cut out using Whimsy's new Shapeology die "Layered Snowflakes" which is a set of 3 snowflakes dies, that can be used layered or by themselves as I did here. (I just used one of the dies.) To finish it off I added the sentiment from the new stamp set "winter notables, cut out using the new Notables 1 Shapeology die.

I am entering this card to these two challenges:
