Clearly Whimsy June Release - Day 2

Hi everyone!
Welcome to Day 2 of Clearly Whimsy's June Release.   This week our design team and special guests will be sharing the new products and on Wednesday, June 8th customers will be able to purchase them from the Whimsy Stamps Store.

Today we are featuring Ocean Journeys , Ocean Journeys Sentiments, Sentiment Banner dies, papers & dots.

Though there are many stamps in this set, my eye was drawn to the anchor.  Could be because my son has enlisted in the Navy.  :)  I also LOVE this sentiment!  So perfect.  I stamped the anchors in red and embossed the sentiment in white on navy cardstock.   If you see the American flag, that is the look I was going for.

This card makes me a little thirsty for some ice cold lemonade.  I stamped the glass onto some Bristol watercolor paper so I could color the image using my Zig Markers.  I die cut it out and set it aside.  For the background I stamped some ink splats from Distress Background & Ink Splats stamp set using Distress inks.  After I had finished stamping the splats, I spritzed lightly with water.  This moved the colors around and created a cool background.  The sentiment is stamped on the fun new Sentiment banner dies.  Love how many different size banners there are in this set.

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.

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


  1. Two AH-MAZING creations! Absolutely adore the anchor card! Great idea to use red, white & blue for your subtle flag design!

    2nd card is gorgeous!!! Your ink splattered backdrop showcases the yummy lemonade perfectly!

    BTW...flawlessly stamped anchors and perfectly spaced...awesome work!

  2. Wow Kristie you really knocked it out of the park with these. I love the flag look you achieved. So clever. And your second card is perfect for summer. So cute.

  3. Love the anchor card Kristie! It could be used as a masculine card, or for anyone. I love that sentiment, it is perfect! I love anchor dies and stamps but the sentiments are usually having to do with water, sometimes you don't want a water sentiment. lol I love the glass of lemonade too! That pink background makes the glass of lemonade pop! Hugs, Brenda

  4. Awesome two cards! The anchor/flag card is so cool and american and summery and creative, and the lemonade card is rad! I thought you'd use alcohol inks... but when you described your technique I was like, "Oh ya..." Great! And congrats on having a son who enlisted in our country's navy!

  5. Love those little red anchors all lined up!! Cute summery card Kristie!

  6. Very pretty cards Kristie. Looks like a great release.

  7. Another two fabulous cards Kristie - love them, especially the lemonade one. The graphic arrangements of the anchors is really eye catching.
