Whimsy Stamps August Release Day #1

Thursday, August 28, 2014

Hi everyone and welcome to the first sneak peek day of the ...
Over the next 3 days we will reveal the new August 2014 Clearly Whimsy Stamps products. We are releasing 3 new clear stamp sets and 4 dies/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 Iris Wiechmann as our Guest Designer. Iris will be joining us for our 3 day release event and sharing her wonderful creations featuring our August release. Welcome Iris!

Today we are revealing the Thanks A Million 4x6” stamp set and Basic Backgrounds & Borders 1 4x6” stamp set, together with the Thanks large word die and the Stitched Borders die set. Hop on over to the Whimsy blog for more details.
   
   

For my card, I used the super fun Thanks a Million set and made a fun shaker card. The first part of my sentiment didn't photograph very well but it says Sending you buckets of.  

I stamped the bucket three times on my patterned paper, using pencil marks to help with placement. Then I stamped the fun heart cluster coming out of each of the buckets.

I then added some sequins, foam tape and acetate to my die cut to make the shaker portion of the card.

OH MY.... Stunning! And very creative. I would have never thought to do something like this. I love the realistic look of the wood, and the "slides" with buckets and sequins. What a creative idea.
