Whimsy Stamps October review

Hi everybody!!
 
If you've missed the winners to my blog candy, that's in the post below this one. I'd also like to ask you all again to vote for your favorite in the Fashionista Challenge. I'm in the top ten with my decorated Ruby Box and of course I would love to win but only if people think my card deserves to win so please, vote for whoever is your favorite.
 
Now it's time for the review of the October Whimsy Stamps release. I decided to use this adorable winter image by Crissy Armstrong named Sheltered love.
Isn't that image just precious? I really wanted to keep the card simple to show off the image so I framed the image with two corners that I cut using THIS die from Noor! by Joy Crafts. The sentiment is from the Holiday Notables 2 set by Raindrop Echo Designs. Then all I used on the card is some Aspen Frost 6x6 design paper by Basic Grey, Cherry Cobbler cardstock from Stampin Up that is finally available in The Netherlands and that I bought from Krista Huysman. I did some stitching by hand again and used some Viva Eiskristall that I threw in some Stardust Stickles. I'd like to thank Monique Lokhorst for this tip, I was at the Dutch KreaDoe fair this past weekend and when checking out the Magnolia booth  with all the gorgeous samples by their design team, I was drawn to her card that were glittering from a mile away. If you read this Monique, I ordered it from Doe-a-Ding and love it, thank you!
A close up of the cute little family.
And the little pieces, as always colored with my precious Copic Markers.

See you back real soon!!!
Hugs,

  20. Your image is simply fantastic! I see there are a lot of pieces. Did it come this way or did you just them like that so you could layer them? I haven't seem that before?

    1. I stamp the images I use several times, color them in parts and cut them into little pieces to layer them. If you look under the tabs on top of my bloghome you'll find one named My Tutorials, under there are several tutorials I did about it. Hope that helps :).
