Fantasy and Whimsy

It's FRIDAY!  And that means it's time for a new challenge at QKR Stampede Challenge Blog.  I'm posting my third challenge as a member of their design team. QKR challenges are always Anything Goes and prizes are awarded.  Stop by the blog to check it out! (

This week I chose to use the QKR digi image Tooth fairy. (#Q-digi6501)  The inside sentiment, Believe,  is from Eureka Stamps (#ES-digi2706) You can find both of these digis here-
I'm entering the gate-fold card into The Cutie Pie Bingo Challenge- last row, top to bottom- glitter and die-cut (stars) and card candy (the inside sentiment is something that I'd enter into a Card Candy Swap as I think it would work for holiday cards, angels, and of course, tooth fairy cards!)

When planning this post, I'd been working on Christmas and winter cards and realized that I had many whimsical and fantasy type images and stamps. So… decided that this whole post will have a theme!  I'll follow QKR's Toothfairy, with this adorable Unicorn. The sweet image, from Picket Fence Studios, was given to me by a stamping buddy.  And… it came as part of a Magic Card Kit. Took a little time stamp, color and put it together, but it is so cute! I covered the sides with washi tape because I didn't like the seeing foam tape holding the card together.  (This allowed me to enter into the Simon Says Monday Challenge "Tape It") The sentiment is from TLC Creations ( The sentiment is from a digi set called the Medley of Greetings 1 from tlcCreations (

Another bit of whimsy can be found in this sweet Christmas image from Dearie Dolls ( I found the background scrapbook paper at JoAnne's and loved the chalkboard print. The holiday sayings and lines from songs are so neat that I ended up cutting several of them out to use as sentiments on cards. "I'm dreaming of a white Christmas" works so perfectly with the image that I just couldn't resist using it on the inside of the card. The holly and snowflakes that adorn the sentiment are also fussy-cut from the paper.  Also, I cut a vellum oval that I slipped behind the Santa and Baby image on the front of the card so that they stood out from the bold lettering.
