Count Down to New Whimsies!! Sneak Peek Day 1

Good Monday morning to everyone! I hope that you had a great weekend! I am finally back on call again after six glorious days off in a row!! My family went camping this weekend and we had a very relaxing time with our friends and family. I was thrilled to have gotten as much done as I did during my time off, but I don't feel really rested!! LOL!!

This week is a very exciting week for me!! There is a LOT of stuff going on and you will hear about it as it all draws near. But let's start with the first order of business which is that Whimise Doodles sneak peeks begin today for the upcoming release of some new digital stamps and cutting files on Thursday October 15th!

Today we are sharing with you sneak peeks for two of the new releases. I have incorporated both of them into my card below...
The little skater girl comes in the set called Go Figure and the sentiment that I chose to pair with her is from the Axelent Christmas set. Both sets come with an image and at least one sentiment!

This view might show you better how I added some Fun Flock to the fur portion of her winter coat and also how I add glittery snow to the edge of the ice rink. The DP I used for the base is from My Mind's Eye and the contrasting red holly paper is from Cosmo Cricket. Copic markers were used to color her in.

This sentiment is sold in the Axelent Christmas set that comes with an image of a pair of skates. As you can see though, this sentiment can be paired with the Go Figure image too! To frame the sentiment for this card I just positioned my Nestabilitie Label number 4 over the top part of the sentiment and then hand trimmed it to go straight down.

To create the ice pond I used one of the Frosted ShortCuts full sheets and cut it out free form to look like a pond. I layered a piece of white CS under the frosted card base and then added the glittery snow to the edges and also to her skate line.
