Clearly Whimsy Release Day 1

Hi everyone and welcome to the first sneak peek day of the Clearly Whimsy Stamps January 2015 release
Over the next 3 days we will reveal our *BRAND NEW* Clearly Whimsy Stamps release! We are releasing 6 new clear stamp sets and 8 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 we are revealing the Birthday Balloon 3x4” stamp set together with its coordinating Birthday Balloon die, a standalone Birthday word die, Up Up and Away 4x6” stamp set and its companion Up Up and Away Sentiments 3x4" stamp set, together with a coordinating Up Up and Away die set and a Stitched Clouds die set. Hop on over to the Whimsy blog for more details.
I chose to use Birthday Balloon and it's matching die for today's card:

I started by stamping the sentiment and sparkles on a panel. I then stamped a cluster of regular balloons from Happy Everything, and added the balloon animal that I stamped on it's cut out. I tied a string around the balloon animal, popped it up, and glued down the string.  I stamped the sentiment on a scrap and cut out just the banner awesome and popped it up it over where it was originally stamped.

We are running a special promotion until Sunday 18th January, and have discounted everything in this release by 10%!! Whimsy Stamps also offers FREE SHIPPING for US orders over $75.
