Clearly Whimsy April Release - Day 1

**This is my second post for today.  Click HERE or scroll down for my  Merry Monday post.**

Hi everyone!
Welcome to Day 1 of Clearly Whimsy's April Release.  Each day this week our design team and special guests will be sharing the new products and on Wednesday, April 13th customers will be able to purchase them from the Whimsy Stamps Store.
Today we are featuring the adorable Baby Animals and coordinating dies.

Isn't this giraffe just the cutest?!  I recently saw a cute baby outfit with a gray and mint green giraffe on it and knew I had to recreate it using these stamps/dies.  I stamped the image onto gray card stock and then mint green card stock.  Did some paper piercing to create the look.  It was a bit tedious cutting all the little dots on the giraffe, but oh so worth it, don't you think?!!!  I trimmed down my panel and added it to my card base which I stamped using the previously released Get in Line stamp set.  Added the twine at the top to finish it off.

Be sure to pop over to the Whimsy Stamps blog each morning to see a peek at the creations with links to the designers blogs.

We will have chances to win prizes all week long as well! We hope you will join in Monday, April 11th through Friday, April  15th for all the new release festivities!

Thank you for visiting and see you again tomorrow for more cards using the new release.
