Whimsy Stamps Release News & Inspiration

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to Day 2 of our Whimsy Stamps January 2016 Release... you can find the whole release right HERE at Whimsy Stamps!

The Whimsy Stamps Design Team have been sharing our new product creations with you... and don't forget you have loads of new ways to win, so make sure you check out the Whimsy Stamps Inspiration Blog!

My card today features the sweet 'Coralia' from the Art by MiRan Collection. She's an absolute darling! I have also used the 'Stitched Circles Die Set' and 'Vines Die Set', and all these are available at the Whimsy Stamps store.

My image is stamped in Momento Tuxedo ink and coloured with Copic markers. I then fussy cut her and the bubbles and added to an 'underwater' paper.
I used some brown cardstock and my Whimsy Stitched circle dies to create a porthole through some wood patterned paper, and popped it up over Coralia, so that she is 'peeking' through.

I diecut some vines and adhered 'coral' coloured flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, along with some pearl sprays. The sentiment is computer generated and diecut with a HOTP label die.

I finished with some stickles on the air bubbles, and some fabulous stars that I received in a Christmas swap from the gorgeous Maya Go! (Thank you so much Maya!)

Hope you like today's card... and hope you are enjoying our fabulous January release!
