Thanks and Hello for Clearly Whimsy Stamps May Release Day #1

Thursday, May 14, 2015

Hi everyone and welcome to the first sneak peek day of the
Clearly Whimsy Stamps May 2015 release

Over the next 3 days we will reveal our *BRAND NEW* Clearly Whimsy Stamps release! We are releasing 4 new clear stamp sets and 7 coordinating die/die sets this week, and they will be available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store TODAY and selected Whimsy Stamps retailers on Saturday!!

Today, I am featuring the fabulous Retro Flowers set. I had so much fun with this set and have two cards to share with you today.

For my first card, I made some masks of the flowers. I then took some bright colors and happily inked my flowers. The entire card panel is popped up on some foam tape. The sentiment is from the same set. I finished off my card with some clear sequins.


For my second card, I had some fun with heat embossing and distress inks. I started by stamping out the flowers in Versamark ink and then heat embossed them with white embossing powder. I then sponged on my distress ink. I couldn't stay away from the sequins but this time, added some colored sequins to match my distress ink.



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 here and on today’s design team posts (listed below), so be sure to visit everyone and leave a comment to be entered into the draw.

Alanna -- you are here


Thanks so much for stopping by and we hope to see you again tomorrow for Day 2 of our release sneak peeks!

You showcased the versatility of this set wonderfully with your two great cards, Alanna! I really like the first one with the flowers stamped in different colors. So striking! Then the embossed with the ink colors in the background is equally striking in a different way. Wonderful work!
