Clearly Whimsy May Release - Day 1

Hi everyone!

Welcome to Day 1 of Clearly Whimsy's May Release.   This week our design team and special guests will be sharing the new products and on Wednesday, May 11th customers will be able to purchase them from the Whimsy Stamps Store.

Today we are featuring  Playful Pups, Add on set & From a Friend stamp set along with Hand Stitched Borders.

I think this little pup is just so cute!  I stamped him/her onto white card stock then colored in the big spots on the ears with my Zig Marker.  I stamped the adorable paw print onto the red card stock to create my own patterned paper.  Super cute and fun!

This card features one of the amazing sentiments in the From a Friend stamp set.  I masked and blended some distress inks for my center panel.  I then stamped the vines from previously released Hand Lettered Encouragement in the coordinating distress ink colors.  Added some water marks for some interest. I then removed the masks and used the stitched borders to create a fun frame around the masked/inked center.  Mounted it onto a black card base 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.
