Whimsy Stamps Release Day 1

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 Thanks a Million, Basic Backgrounds and Borders 1, and the Stitched Borders Dies.

    

I used the stripes from Basic Backgrounds & Borders to create the dark-on-light background on the bottom.  I cut the edge with one of the Stitched Border dies and placed the sentiment.  The scripty Love was colored over with my red spica glitter pen.  I stamped and cut out some buckets and lightly marked where the hearts would go.  Stamped the hearts and then strung the buckets over the top edge and popped them up.

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:
