Whimsy's New Release ~ Blades & a Freebie

December 1st and we are all saying, 'No Way'!  
At least we crafting ladies can enjoy all the new releases and make our wish lists - or better yet... just go purchase so you are sure you get the right thing.  

As you know or could guess, the Design Team members are given the images about a month in advance to begin working on our cards for the new release products.  Today's card I finished around the 10th of November.... and if you are a Whimsy follower... you will remember that around the 15th Whimsy and Jennifer Dove released the new Kinetic Dies.  So, I started NOT to share this card as it was made 'the old fashion way' vs the new Kinetic way.  However since most of us don't have the new dies yet (Ah-Ha...Christmas List Items!!!) ... I decided to share my Slider card.  I do hope you will check out the new die line.  I just received mine this week and can't wait to try them out too. 

One of the new December release Digital images from Whimsy is BLADES by CC Designs.  Here is the slider card that I made using this image. 

The digital image was printed on 110# card stock, then Copic colored and fussy cut.  I used a Spellbinder die for the words  'Sweet Friend' and the Gina Marie Stitched Sky and Stitched Cloud Border Dies for the snow and cloud backgrounds.  I used Distress Oxides for the shading of all the background pieces.  I also colored in the 'slot' using the same Copic color as her dress so that it would have a white strip showing.  After assembly I took a 1/8" strip of light blue matching paper and glued around the area of tape between the two layers to cover the sticky tape that always shows.  This was a great tip that my friend Jennie shared with me.  The three snowflake embellishments are put on with glue dots that are made for heavy embellishments.  This also was a new 'find' for me, and they work really well. 

And for a very nice Christmas surprise!!!  Whimsy has a new digital freebie for members of the Facebook group Whimsy Stamps and Inspiration.  The link to get this image is on that page - if you aren't a member, request to join so you can get this limited image during the month of December.  
The image is called Christmas Mouse, designed by Crissy Armstrong.  Here's my card made with this cutie! 

Be sure to post your card also into the Challenge album before December 12th for your chance to win a $15 gift certificate.
