Whimsy Sneak Peek - Celebrate Big!


Good Morning and Happy Saturday!

Hope you're having a great weekend! I don't normally post on the weekend, but today is our first official day of sneak peeks at the new Whimsy March rubber stamps! These new stamps will be available to purchase on Wednesday March 16th.

Celebrate Big!

This is my card using the brand new stamp "Celebrate Big!" illustrated by Crissy Armstrong. This stamp comes as the main image and also the little Celebrate Big sentiment too!

The papers are BG but I don't remember the name at the moment. They are party themed and coordinate really well with this image. I've stitched the edges on the sewing machine and then added the "Birthday Wish List" background stamp by Ann Vento, as another paper layer. This stamp was released last month, but works perfectly with these new images. The image was colored with Copics and then also stitched. I've embellished with ribbon and a sentiment, buttons with twine, and a crackle paint finished star which I made using chipboard and Distressed Crackle paint - love that stuff!

This card fits the challenges at:
Daring Cardmakers - home baked (create at least one of your embellishments)
Fairy Fun Fridays -  it's my party/have a party theme
Fun with Shapes & More - must include die cut/punch - happy birthday
Aud Sentiments Challenge - Birthday card, gift packaging or gifts
Do You Stack Up? -  Layers
Little Miss Muffet Challenges - Designer Papers

Simon Says Stamp - anything goes
Be sure to stop by the Whimsy Inspirations Blog for a list of all the other sneak peeks! Have a great weekend!
