Welcome to the ...
Clearly Whimsy Stamps May release BLOG HOP!
The CWS design team have been sharing some amazing creations made with these new stamps and dies over the last couple of days, and today we are celebrating their release with a GRAND BLOG HOP!
On Thursday, we released 4 new Clearly Whimsy Stamps clear sets and 7 new coordinating Shapeology crafting dies.Yum Yum Yum 4x6 set, Say Cheese 4x6 set, Retro Flowers 4x6 set, Lil stinker 4x6 set Cupcake large word die, Friend large word die, Ice cream cone die, Laugh large word die, Lil stinker outlines die Say cheese film strip, Wish large word die
The hop starts today (Saturday May 16th at 8.00AM ET) and ends on Wednesday May 20th at midnight EDT.
My card for today features Retro Flowers, Say Cheese, Say Cheese Filmstrip die, and friend large word die.
I started by taking my watercolor brush, picking up some ink with it, and randomly coloring on a white panel. Once it dried, I stamped the filmstrip on it, and layered another filmstrip at an angle, this one die cut. I stamped and cut out the flower and added a pretty center. The leaves are triangles (Tremendous Triangles dies) stamped with the mesh from Distressed Backgrounds and Ink Splats. I attached the flower over the filmstrips, added the die cut friend and the rest of the sentiment. I popped up the whole panel on the card base.
This card also works for this week's ShowCASe Your Style Challenge #15, theme - friends.
We will draw one winner from the comments left on each hop post and that random person will win a $25 gift voucher to the Whimsy Store. Remember to comment on all the blogs in the hop in order to be eligible for the drawing.
Thanks for stopping by! We hope you enjoy this blog hop! The next stop is Debbie's blog.

Hi everyone and welcome to the Day 2 of the Clearly Whimsy Stamps May 2015 release!
We are releasing 4 new clear stamp sets and 7 coordinating die/die sets this week, and they are available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store RIGHT NOW and selected Whimsy Stamps retailers tomorrow!!
Today's card features the ice cream cone die, wish large word die,
and a sentiment from Yum Yum Yum.
I started by stamping black stripes (Basic Backgrounds & Borders) on a white panel, and attaching it to a white card base. I then attached another white panel on top. I cut the cone from kraft paper, and the ice cream scoop from pink paper that I stamped heart "sprinkles" (Thanks a Million) on in red ink. I then cut another scoop from chocolate paper, and ran it through a second time with the edge of the die moved up so that it created an edge to make it look like fudge. I then covered part of the chocolate with Wink of Stella. I popped up the cherry on top. I attached the cone to the card, added the "wish" and the rest of the sentiment.

Today I am showing you a card using Yum Yum Yum and the cupcake large word die.
I started by randomly stamping some ink splats from Distressed Backgrounds & Ink Splats on a white card base. I stamped the cupcake from Yum Yum Yum, colored it with copics, and cut it out. I stamped the sentiment (also from Yum Yum Yum) on a tag, added a knot at the top, and adhered it to the card base. I attached the cupcake, then added the "cupcake" die cut from vellum across the bottom.

I made a graphic card using my Clearly Whimsy supplies. I started by stamping the chevrons in dark green ink on a bright green panel. I rounded the corners and added an aqua strip across the bottom. After I mounted it to a white base, I added a white diecut hello and a few black pearls.
Thanks for stopping by!

This week's ShowCASe Your Style challenge is a color challenge:
Here's what I made:
I stamped a bunch of triangles (Tremendous Triangles) in the colors of this challenge to make a geometric front. I cut my main panel at an angle so I could stamp the sentiment on the card base (Thanks a Million). I then popped up the two halves of the main panel.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you'll play along!
