Hi everyone and welcome to Day 2 of the Clearly Whimsy Stamps January 2015 release!
We are releasing 6 new clear stamp sets and 8 coordinating die/die sets this week, and they are available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store RIGHT NOW and selected Whimsy Stamps retailers tomorrow!!
Today we are revealing the Get Well Soon 4x6" stamp set and its companion Get Well Soon Additions 3x4" stamp set, together with 2 coordinating die sets, a Basic Backgrounds & Borders 2 4x6" stamp set, plus a new Basic Borders Trio die set and a Love Large Word die. Hop on over to the Whimsy blog for more details.
On to the cards, shall we?
For today's card I stamped one of the background stamps from the new Basic Backgrounds & Borders 2 in strips on my light gray cardstock one at a time with watermark ink. Then, I embossed each one (each color separately) in a different color. I stamped the sentiment on vellum from the new Birthday Balloon set that was showcased yesterday and embossed it in silver. I really love that banner sentiment! So that I didn't have to adhere my vellum to the front of my cardbase, I scored it on each side, wrapped it around my card mat & then adhered it to the backside. A great tip that I learned from my friend Amy!
Last up today is a card that I made with a few more new products! I stamped the "plus" sign from the Get Well Soon stamp set randomly on my cardstock in different colors of ink. This was inspired by a patterned paper from Pink Paislee that I really like and wanted to recreate a similar look. It made a nice frame for the sentiment!
The new Love Word die is gorgeous! I really like that scripty font! I die cut it here from magenta glitter paper. To finish the card off, I added a few clear sequins.
Before I go, there are a few other things that you might want to take notice of!
