Whimsy August Rubber & Die Release - Day 1

Hi Everyone!
Welcome to Day 1 of the ...
Whimsy Stamps August rubber stamp and die release!

Over the next 3 days we will reveal the new August 2014 Whimsy Stamps products. Whimsy is releasing 11 new red rubber stamps/stamp sets and 3 coordinating die/die sets this week, and they will be available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store and selected Whimsy Stamps retailers on Wednesday.

Today we are excited to show you the brand new Elisabeth Bell, Time for Tea Designs and SC Design stamps being released this month. For a full reveal of these stamps, check out the Whimsy blog!

For today's project, I have inked up this sweet new image from Time 4 Tea Designs called 'Cozy Cardi'. I have also used a sentiment from the new 'Chalkboards 2' set from  SC Designs.

I stamped the image and sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Ink, coloured the image with Copicmarkers, and sponged around both pieces with Distress Ink.

 
The papers are from Basic Grey 'Pyrus' 6 x 6 paper pad, and I only had small pieces left so arranged them in a pattern with wide lace covering where they didn't quite meet! (cheeky I know!)

  
I framed the image and sentiment with Nestabilities Romantic Rectangles and attached with mounting foam. To finish I embellished with some roses and pearls.

So now it's time for you to continue today's hop! We are thrilled to welcome Hellen Pearce, Sheri Willshire, Tabbatha Sandoval and Tracey Murphy as our Guest Designers for this release. Welcome ladies!
