I’ve Been Published!

Hey friends!  This is just a quick post to share my excitement with you about having a card I made for Whimsy Stamps published in the December 2019 “Handpicked” article on p. 38 of the Making Cards & Papercraft Magazine!  If you hurry, I think there are just a couple of short days to grab your December issue and get the “Pablo the Penguin” stamp set for FREE with it!  They also give you some fun papers to go with it too!

I would’ve shared this a bit sooner, but I wanted to take a photo of the issue in hand with me here.   The stamp set that I’ve used for my card is from the brand new December release at Whimsy Stamps called “Winter Wonderland“.  It’s a clear stamp set with lots of really sweet snowman images in it!  It’s one of my faves from the new release too!


Here’s a photo of it that I took myself before sending it along to the magazine back in October.  🙂

I won’t go into great detail about it, but I’ve also paired this with the Whimsy Stamps Winter’s Magic Blue Digital Papers Collection as well as the Whimsy Stamps No-See All Seasons Tree die set (snowflakes only die) for my card design.

If you get the magazine, then you can see below in the article how it was put together.


Here’s a closer view of the image and you can see the bits of glitter over it.


This was just a really fun card to make and quite simple to put together too!  I really enjoyed it and how fun to get published with it as well!  It’s an honor of course and now that I have that adorable penguin set (from the magazine)….I can’t wait to play with it and have some fun!!  So stayed tuned for projects I will be making with those cute little guys!! 🙂

Thanks so much for stopping in and letting me share my excitement with you!

*Be sure to stop back in tomorrow for a special blog hop!

P.S.  I have a spot along the sidebar of my blog where there will be a link to the magazine website in case you’re interested as well as a link to the Whimsy Stamp set I used for my card and a link to this post as well.
