Another Whimsy Peek


Happy Tuesday!

Boy, I am LATE with this post! Yikes! It's been another very busy day here gearing up for the new Whimsy release tomorrow. Have you been checking out the DT sneak peeks? I think they have done an amazing job!


I took some time today to craft a couple of cards and I have one of those to show you now. This card uses two new rubber stamps and a new die. The stamps are "Balloon Mouse" by Meljen's Designs and the other is "Birthday Wish List" by Raindrop Echo Designs. And the die is our new Balloon Die set also created by Ann of Raindrop Echo. I have to say I LOVE this new die set and know for sure I will be using it A LOT and there is a stamp set that coordinates with it too!  So lots and lots of possibilities.

I started with some Fancy Pants papers and then stitched all the edges with the sewing machine. I colored the Balloon Mouse with Copics and then embellished with pearls on the corner (where I actually had a smudge). I cut out the balloons with the die from some scrap papers I had and then added little twine strings and some glitter to jazz them up a bit. I've embellished with pearls on the corners of the card and a piece of ribbon.

This card fits the challenges at:
Bearly Mine  - for men & boys
Scrap-Creations - animal antics
Wee memories - Dust off Those Scraps
Fuzzy Wuzzy  - animal, anything goes
Sew Many Cards  - anything goes
Stampin With The Dragon  – anything goes

Thanks for dropping by today. Hope you will join us tomorrow for the official Whimsy release day! The fun starts at noon ET. Have a great night!
