On the eleventh day of Christmas

On the eleventh day of Christmas
my true love sent to me:
Eleven Pipers Piping







Welcome to my part of the Whimsy Stamps Holiday hop through the "12 days of Christmas!" If you arrived from Crissy's blog you're on the right track~ if not please head to Bev's if you'd like to start from the very beginning!

We are thrilled to welcome Crissy Armstrong and are loving her new stamps for Whimsy! There is candy to be had...so be sure to comment on the Whimsy blog for your chance to win. This event will end November 13th at noon EST. Be sure to hit each stop on the hop as the new designs are wonderful and you won't want to miss a thing!

I did an easel card for my project. Here's a link to how to make one. I used Crissy's adorable snowman and friend stamp. I like this one particularly since it can be used for holidays and winter too! It is colored with Copic markers. I printed out a digital snowflake stamp really large and in blue. I filled in the snowflake with Stickles to add some sparkle! I cut out my snowman image with a circle Nestability and layered it on a larger one in teal. I put dimensional adhesive behind the circle to raise it above the bottom layer snowflake. I punched two large snowflakes (Martha Stewart snowflake punch). I used the Merry Christmas postage sentiment from Whimsy to go inside the snowflake punch. The easel base is decorated with red velvet ribbon and self adhesive snowflake flocked lace by We R Memory Keepers (Hobby Lobby). I'm really happy with how it turned out!

Now that I've shared my snowman with you it's time for you to move along in the song. Your next verse is with Denise. Have a great time and don't worry...no one will know if you're singing along off key!
