Hi Everyone!

I have some Whimsy Inspiration to share with you today from the fabulous
Whimsy Stamps June 2016 Release! 

You can find all of the awesome new stamps right HERE at Whimsy Stamps!

This card features a sweet stamp set called 'Beary Fun' from the Lee Holland Collection. I absolutely love this stamp set! It's just perfect for little boy cards, but of course you could change up the colours for a little girl too... Everyone loves teddy bears! ;) This sweet set of 3 bears and several sentiments is of course available at Whimsy Stamps.


The image is stamped in Momento Tuxedo ink and coloured with Copic markers. I then just trimmed it into a rectangle and framed with a border each of red and navy.


The papers are from the Carta Bella 'Rough & Tumble' collection, which are just adorable with this image! I framed the sentiment with a tag and added it below the image.

I finished with a few pearls.

Hi Everyone!
Welcome to the final day of our  
Whimsy Stamps June 2016 Release!

You can find all of the awesome new stamps right HERE at Whimsy Stamps!

The Whimsy Stamps Design Team have been sharing our new product creations with you over the past few days...don't forget to check out all the new ways to win at the Whimsy Stamps Inspiration Blog!

Today I'm excited to show you not just a fabulously fun new stamp set, but also the brand new Whimsy Stamps 6x6 Paper Pads and Enamel Dot collections! Designed by our very own DT member Tracy Wray, they are so bright and fun, and I am absolutely LOVING them!

My card today features the 'Summer Breeze' papers and enamel dots, which were the perfect match for these cheeky little sea creatures from Krista Heij-Barber called 'Snappy Birthday'. This set comes with these funny little fellows, along with the sentiment, balloons, stars and streamers for a fun Snappy Birthday card. The papers, enamel dots AND the adorable stamps are available right now at Whimsy Stamps.


I chose a side-step card so I could fit all my cute little creatures on, and also to show off several of these awesome Whimsy papers.


Here's both angles so you can see everything!


The images are stamped in Momento Tuxedo ink, coloured with Copic markers, then fussy-cut so I could arrange them onto the card.

 

 I added Stickles to the small stars and the water bubbles for some extra shine.


And of course I finished with those fabulous new Whimsy Enamel Dots!
