Hi, It's Sneak Peek Time - Whimsy New Release

It's a new release time at Whimsy Stamps on Monday, July 19th and I can give you a little sneaky preview of what's coming up.

Meet Maya and Marissa by Crissy Armstrong:

Coloured in Copics and let me tell you - I was nervous, never had coloured African-American skin before and had NO idea how to do it. So I just, well, grabbed my markers and plunged, lol.

Not too bad, methinks. Of course I had to add some Stickles to the image as well.Glitter makes everything better.

That lovely tag sentiment is from the new release as well, the set is called Fancy Friendship Tags. Real pretty and very versatile tag-shaped sentiments set.

Hi Annika,

I know those papers are really beautiful and i have been itching to use them for ages now but i've not had the oppportunity to do any baby cards... They are from the 'Old MacDonald's Farm' collection by Michele Ackerman from Paper Adventures.

Hope this helps...
