Whimsy Stamps Release Day Sneak Peaks


Hello and welcome to Day 2 of our April Rubber & Die Release Showcase! On Wednesday (18th April) Whimsy Stamps released this month's new rubber designs and new Shapeology dies. From then until 24 April the Whimsy Stamps DT and Special Guests are showcasing these fabulous new goodies with a daily mini blog hop and I am part of today’s hop!

For my card I’ve used the beautiful April Sunshine which is illustrated by no other than Elisabeth Bell and I’ve coloured her in using my ProMarkers, FlexMarkers and AquaMarker pens.

Untitled-42


The DP is a mixture Roses and Prima and I’ve distressed the edges and then inked them up using Brushed Corduroy.

The gorgeous Prima Petal Pins – Iced and Pearl Brads - Ice Green are both available from Bunny Zoe Crafts.

The sentiment that I’ve used on my card is from the new sentiments called Everyday Sayings Notables 4 from Whimsy Stamps.

For people that are in the UK/Ireland this beautiful stamp will be available at Bunny Zoe Crafts from the 20th April.

Each mini blog hop has a new release prize hidden somewhere along the way and you have 24hrs to enter each prize draw.

  50. Hey Michele,
    Thought I'd pop in to check out what you've been up to lately and then I stumbled upon the Whimsy Bloghop Post. I LOVE the Cottage Cuties by E. Bell that were released by Whimsy (I've got Chloe & Apple Blossom), and this one is no exception. You've colored her beautifully, really brought her to life. As always; love all your details and the distressed look.

    Have a great weekend!
    Hugz,
    Sandy
