Clearly Whimsy Release Day 2

Hi everyone and welcome to the second sneak peek day of the Clearly Whimsy Stamps October 2014 release!
 We are releasing 7 new clear stamp sets and 5 dies/die sets this week, and they will be available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store today and selected Whimsy Stamps retailers on Saturday.
 This month we are thrilled to welcome Michelle Short and Lisa Henke as our Guest Designers. Welcome ladies! We are so happy that you are joining us for this release!
 Today we are revealing the Sparkle & Shine, Gingerbread House and Gingerbread People, together with the coordinating Gingerbread die sets.  Hop on over to the Whimsy blog for more details.
   
   I used Sparkle & Shine for my card today.
I started by stamping the strand of lights on my base, then added the bulbs in random order. I adhered it to a black base with a silver strip, then added stardust and frosted lace stickles to the bulbs. When it was dry, I added the sentiment strip.  To make the sentiment, I inked it with versamark first, then inked it with my colored ink before stamping it. I then embossed it with iridescent ice embossing powder. You know, for more sparkle and shine :)
Here's a close up of the dazzle:
Now who can resist a sale? You can get all this new stuff on sale!

Clearly Whimsy Release Day 1

Hi everyone and welcome to the first sneak peek day of the Clearly Whimsy Stamps October 2014 release

Over the next 3 days we will reveal the new October 2014 Clearly Whimsy Stamps products. We are releasing 7 new clear stamp sets and 5 dies/die sets this week, and they will be available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store today and selected Whimsy Stamps retailers on Saturday. 


 This month we are thrilled to welcome Michelle Short and Lisa Henke as our Guest Designers. Welcome ladies! We are so happy that you are joining us for this release! 


 Today we are revealing the Penguin Fun 4x6” stamp set and Tremendous Triangles 4x6” stamp set, together with the coordinating Penguin Fun die set and the Tremendous Triangles die set. Hop on over to the Whimsy blog for more details.

   

   

So let's take a look at what I made with these sets.  How cute are those penguins?!!!  Adorable!

I used Tremendous Triangles and dies for this first card.

I cut a frame with my rectangle spellbinders, and added some vellum in it that I cut with the curved edge die from Stitched Borders Trio to mimic a snow bank.  Added the trees and made a banner for the sentiment from a set you'll see in a couple days.  The stitching on the banner is from Basic Backgrounds & Borders. The angle of the picture makes the banner look wonky, but it's symmetrical. I tied a red ribbon around the larger tree and added a gold star to the smaller one. 

                                         Now for a card using those oh-so-cute penguins!


I cut and stamped my penguins, then colored in the feet, beaks, and a little shadow on their eyes and bellies.  I added the hat, earmuffs, and antlers before adhering them on the hill of snow cut with the wavy border from Stitched Border Trio again. I added some trees from Tremendous Triangles in the background. I was picturing these little guys rolling down a hill and landing in a heap, haha!

MFT WSC 199

I stamped a white panel with snowflakes, then cut it into squares to fit the windowpane idea 

for this week's sketch.

Thanks for stopping by!

    


A Whole Lotta Happy

I made a cheery card today using my Clearly Whimsy stash!

I love tilted panels all of a sudden. They are so fun! I used the stitched straight border die on two of my panels, then stamped the sentiment from Happy Everything. I die cut several layers and colors of the layered flower, then cut some leaves free hand and added a little color to them.  The row of stars is also from Happy Everything, and I put some black pearls on last.

Thanks for stopping by!
