Clearly Whimsy Release: Day 1

Hello!!  I have some fun news to share!! I am Guest Designing with Whimsy Stamps this week for their newest release!  I'm so excited to get to play along with these fabulous products!  

Over the next 3 days the design team will reveal the new June 2014 Clearly Whimsy Stamps products.  Whimsy Stamps is releasing 6 new clear stamp sets and 6 coordinating die/die sets this week, and they will be available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store and selected Whimsy Stamps retailers on Saturday!

Today the team is revealing the HAPPY EVERYTHING 4x6 stamp set together with its coordinating die sets, PLUS the DISTRESSED BACKGROUNDS AND INK SPLATS 4x6 stamp set.  Hop on over to the Whimsy blog for more details.

For my projects this week, I will share with you using a couple of stamp sets with coordinating dies that the rest of the team will share later in the week called Time for Tea & Time for Tea Additions!

A Cup of Thanks Bag

The first thing that came to me when I saw the stamps I received was that they are perfect to make gifts and gift bags with!  With the Time for Tea & Time for Tea Additions set I created this tag for my bag.

I stamped the beautiful scrolled banner with gold ink and also stamped the tea cut with gold ink as well after it had been die cut.  Aren't the fonts for the sentiment so pretty?

You're My Cup Tea 1.1

Next up is a vintage styled card using the set.  I stamped the large frame on vellum and then embossed it with pink embossing powder.  I stamped the sentiment inside and also embossed it in gold ink.  I always find it hard to adhere my vellum to my card, so for this one I used a sheet of vellum adhesive that covers almost the entire back of the frame and you can't see it at all!  You can't tell from the picture, but after I colored the "tea" with my copics, I added glitter with my Spica pen on top!

PRIZE ALERT ... We have hidden a fabulous prize of a $15 GIFT CERTIFICATE at one of the stops on today’s hop!  We will draw the lucky winner from the comments left on today’s design team posts (listed below), so be sure to visit everyone and leave a comment to be entered:
