A whole lotta Happy & Birthday Wishes -- Release week at Whimsy Stamps

Thursday, June 26, 2014

Hi everyone and welcome to the first sneak peek day of the ...
Over the next 3 days we will reveal the new June 2014 Clearly Whimsy Stamps products. We are releasing 6 new clear stamp sets and 6 coordinating die/die sets this week, and they will be available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store and selected Whimsy Stamps retailers on Saturday.

This month we are thrilled to welcome Jen Carter and Becky Carafa as our Guest Designers. Jen and Becky will be joining us for our 3 day release event and sharing their wonderful creations featuring our June release. Welcome girls!

Today we are revealing the HAPPY EVERYTHING 4x6 stamp set together with its coordinating die sets, PLUS the DISTRESSED BACKGROUNDS AND INK SPLATS 4x6 stamp set. Hop on over to the Whimsy blog for more details.
PRIZE ALERT ... We have hidden a fabulous prize of a $15 GIFT CERTIFICATE at one of the stops on today’s hop! We will draw the lucky winner from the comments left on today’s design team posts (listed below), so be sure to visit everyone and leave a comment to be entered into the draw:


For my first card, I had an idea to use one of the brushstrokes from Distressed Backgrounds & Ink Splats and stamp it repeatedly in a rainbow pattern. I then added a sentiment from Happy Everything. That panel was popped up on the card front which I embossed with an impression plate.

My second card today just features the Happy Everything set and is a bit more subdued then the first one. I started with a soft grey card stock for the card base. I had an idea to use one of the candles in the set and placed it horizontally to ground my sentiment. Some enamel dots finish off the card along with some rounded corners at the bottom. 


I'm also entering my cards into the current anything goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp.

***Supplies for 1st card***


***Supplies for 2nd card***


Hope to see you again tomorrow for Day 2 of our release sneak peeks!

The colors are beautiful in the first card and I really like their placement. And the embossing folder gives it a lot of texture. The CAS card is soft and beautiful.
