Graduate and a fun Shaker card for Release Week at Whimsy Stamps

Saturday, June 28, 2014

Hi everyone and welcome to the Clearly Whimsy Stamps June Release BLOG HOP!
All 6 new clear stamp sets AND 6 coordinating die/die sets are now available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store and the DT and GDT are celebrating their release with a GRAND BLOG HOP!

The hop starts today (Saturday June 29th at 8.00AM EDT) and ends on Sunday June 30th at midnight EDT. If you would like to hop along with us today, please CLICK HERE to start the hop at the Whimsy Stamps blog. Here is a complete blog hop list in hopping order:

One lucky hopper will win 2 stamp sets and 1 die set from the Time For Tea line.  To enter the draw, simply leave a comment at EVERY stop along the hop!
Today we are excited to share the final set of stamps and dies from this release - TIME FOR TEA:
For my first card, I've got another card featuring School Spirit and it's matching die set.

I decided to make a graduation card to have on hand for next year. Gold and black do happen to be the colors of the high school I attended but I also thought they might work together for a more generic graduation card.

For my second card, I used the super fun Happy Everything set along with the Distressed Background & Ink Splats set to create this fun shaker card.

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

LET'S GO SHOPPING for Card #1

Such a great pair of cards Alanna and I particularly love the shaker card. I've never tried to make one myself but I'm seeing such good ones like this lately and maybe need to try it.
