Welcome to the Clearly Whimsy Stamps May release BLOG HOP!
The CWS design team have been sharing some amazing creations made with these new stamps and dies over the last couple of days, and today we are celebrating their release with a GRAND BLOG HOP! On Thursday, we released 4 new Clearly Whimsy Stamps clear sets and 7 new coordinating Shapeology crafting dies.
For today's card I am also posting for the newest ShowCASe Your Style Challenge as well! The theme for the next two weeks is "Friendship" and we'd love for you to join us (more about that below).
For this card I really tried to go outside of the box and was very inspired by a photo I found on the web that I've shown below. I really wanted to recreate that cool photo in this card! I started by die cutting the waffle cone from the new Ice Cream Cone die set. I wanted a deep impression on the waffle part that is impressed into the die cut so I first wet my kraft paper with a few light sprays of water. This left such a nice, deep impression for my waffle cone flower container!
I next stamped & embossed in white one of the flower images from the new Retro Flowers stamp set and fussy cut them out. Some of them I popped up with dimensionals and some I adhered directly to the background paper. I added white & clear enamel dots to each flower center for even more dimension & texture. I die cut the new Friend Large Word die out of vellum and adhered and then heat embossed the "celebrate" from the Yum, Yum, Yum stamp set in Copper.
Like I said earlier, this is also for the ShowCASe Your Style Challenge! I hope you'll play along with us! We would love to see your creations using stamps from the Clearly Whimsy line, but all products are welcome to be used and no one is disqualified from winning! The challenge is open for 2 weeks.
