Clearly Whimsy May release - Release Day Hop!

Welcome to the ...
Clearly Whimsy Stamps May release BLOG HOP!

The CWS design team have been sharing some amazing creations made with these new stamps and dies over the last couple of days, and today we are celebrating their release with a GRAND BLOG HOP!

On Thursday, we released 4 new Clearly Whimsy Stamps clear sets and 7 new coordinating Shapeology crafting dies.Yum Yum Yum 4x6 set, Say Cheese 4x6 set, Retro Flowers 4x6 set, Lil stinker 4x6 set  Cupcake large word die, Friend large word die, Ice cream cone die, Laugh large word die, Lil stinker outlines die Say cheese film strip, Wish large word die

The hop starts today (Saturday May 16th at 8.00AM ET) and ends on Wednesday May 20th at midnight EDT.

My card for today features Yum, Yum, Yum stamp set and the Cupcake large word die.

I love the look of layered die cuts and that is what I did for this card.  I first stamped the cupcake and colored using my copic markers.  I then die cut the word "cupcake" out of the panel.  While I was at it I cut 3 more in black to layer under the top one.  After masking off part of the sentiment to just get "hey there," and stamping I attached to a black mat and pieced the layered black die back in the negative space.  I then attached the white die cut on top.

We will draw one winner from the comments left on each hop post and that random person will win a $25 gift voucher to the Whimsy Store. Remember to comment on all the blogs in the hop in order to be eligible for the drawing.
