To celebrate a new release at Whimsy we are happily hopping. Go on, hop along, you do NOT want to miss all the visual treats on offer! And, of course, the hidden prizes on the way! :)
There's A LOT of new wintery stamps from Crissy Armstrong, Meljens and Ann Vento. But that's not all - Whimsy now has a line of metal dies as well - the first one is a ticket die, perfect for cutting out ticket sentiment stamps! And you can also put in preorder for THIS:
It's called Winter's Jewel 1 and should be shipping in week's time or so - an absolutely stunning snowflake metal die - and it embosses as well!!
Oh, and there's 10 new designs for custom rubber stamps too - have a look!!
Now, if you're coming from Claudia's blog, you're on right track. If not, you might want to start over from Crissy's blog.
My card uses a beautiful angel from a Peace on Earth set created by Crissy Armstrong. The sentiment is in the same set, along with several others. I used another image stamp in that set to stamp a frame around the angel.
I coloured the angel in distress inks, trying a out a bit different approach and style for me - which, as you can see, needs A LOT of practice! lol Most of the embellies on that card came in a RAK from WONDERFUL friend Tara! I am incredibly lucky!
My goal was to achieve a very vintage and softly wintery look and I think I came pretty darn close!!
The image looks actually better irl, the embossing is lovely but VERY hard to photograph. :(
The next stop in the hop is our fabulous, fantastic ERIN! she has something real pretty for you...
