I'm a Guest Designer!


I've been sitting on some fun news for awhile.  Denise over at Whimsy Stamps asked me to be a guest designer this month, and I was thrilled to accept!  There's a lot of cute stuff being released this month!  So let's get started!

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 (that's me!!!) 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.               

I will be sneaking peeks of School Spirit and Smarty Pants all three days.  There is a list at the end of the designers peeking Distressed Backgrounds and Happy Everything.
I started by stamping the alphabet strip from School Spirit on a light blue panel.  I die cut 3 large stars in 3 different colors of orange and layered them together to form the base for my medallion.  This set is great, it has lots of separate words and elements so you can arrange them any way you like.  "Star", "student", the arrows, and the star are all separate stamps here. After I stamped the main circle, I die cut it with a circle and attached it in the middle of my orange stars to have a nice pointy border.  The little yellow star is popped up.  Two black card stock strips, blue ribbon tails, and some more dimensionals finish it off.

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