Whimsy Sneak Peek Week - Whimsy Giraffe

Happy Tuesday All!

Hope you're week is going well. Things have been busy here! We are getting ready for the release of 5 new Whimsy Stamps stamps! We will be adding 3 new animals to our Whimsy Animals Collection and 2 new kids to the Whimsy Kids Collection. It's an exciting time!

In honor of this new release we thought we'd have some fun all week long by showing you sneak peeks at the new stamps! The Whimsy Stamps Design Team will be creating projects using the new images and posting everyday this week! Yesterday, Jeanette and Camilla showed us two fabulous cards using Princess Emma and Whimsy Giraffe! Hop on over to their blogs and check out what they made!

Today, I have a sneak peek for you at the Whimsy Giraffe and Michele and Vicki have sneak peeks at Connor on Bike from the Kids Collection and Whimsy Monkey from the Animals Collection!

Here's my giraffe....

I used the sketch from this week's Sketch Saturday. I did flip it a bit to fit my image and accents. The colors are Chocolate Chip and Barely Banana, which makes me think of banana splits on a hot Summer day! Speaking of Summer, there's a brand new challenge over on Whimsy Challenges that's all about Summer fun!

I colored my image with Copics and had to cut part of the body off to work with this sketch. So this is a mini sneak peek! LOL! :) The accents on this card are wide grosgrain ribbon, felt flowers, and Button Latte all from SU!. The designer paper is also SU! from the recent SAB pack. Lastly, the edges on all the layers have been distressed.

Thanks for stopping on by today! Hope you have a great afternoon. Be sure to check back each day this week for more Whimsy Sneak Peeks and on Friday there may just be a little something extra!!!

Happy Stamping! :)
