Whimsie Doodles October Release Day


It is new release day at Whimsie Doodles!! This month Melyssa has created some of the most adorable winter stamps I have seen. There are lots of cute snowmen and even a little Turkey for Thanksgiving. For my card today I am using the NEW Snowman Tea digital stamp set.


To start my card I colored in my 'little man' with COPIC markers, taking color cues from the papers I chose. After he was all colored I trimmed him out by hand, leaving the slightest white border. To take out some of the brightness of the sentiment block, I used a very light COPIC marker to color the cardstock.


I was going for a shabby/vintage look here, so I busted out one of my paper doilies and shipping tags. The tag was embossed with some paisleys and a bit of twine was tied through the hole. To finish the card I adhered some pink gems on the sentiment.
