Clearly Whimsy Release Day 1

Hi everyone and welcome to the first sneak peek day of the Clearly Whimsy Stamps October 2014 release

Over the next 3 days we will reveal the new October 2014 Clearly Whimsy Stamps products. We are releasing 7 new clear stamp sets and 5 dies/die sets this week, and they will be available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store today and selected Whimsy Stamps retailers on Saturday. 


 This month we are thrilled to welcome Michelle Short and Lisa Henke as our Guest Designers. Welcome ladies! We are so happy that you are joining us for this release! 


 Today we are revealing the Penguin Fun 4x6” stamp set and Tremendous Triangles 4x6” stamp set, together with the coordinating Penguin Fun die set and the Tremendous Triangles die set. Hop on over to the Whimsy blog for more details.

   

   

So let's take a look at what I made with these sets.  How cute are those penguins?!!!  Adorable!

I used Tremendous Triangles and dies for this first card.

I cut a frame with my rectangle spellbinders, and added some vellum in it that I cut with the curved edge die from Stitched Borders Trio to mimic a snow bank.  Added the trees and made a banner for the sentiment from a set you'll see in a couple days.  The stitching on the banner is from Basic Backgrounds & Borders. The angle of the picture makes the banner look wonky, but it's symmetrical. I tied a red ribbon around the larger tree and added a gold star to the smaller one. 

                                         Now for a card using those oh-so-cute penguins!


I cut and stamped my penguins, then colored in the feet, beaks, and a little shadow on their eyes and bellies.  I added the hat, earmuffs, and antlers before adhering them on the hill of snow cut with the wavy border from Stitched Border Trio again. I added some trees from Tremendous Triangles in the background. I was picturing these little guys rolling down a hill and landing in a heap, haha!

I love the layering on the first card. At first I thought it was a shaker card with white sand.
It is so pretty.
Those penguins are darling. Glad they're having fun together.
thanks for sharing.
