Clearly Whimsy Release: Day 2

Hi everyone and welcome to DAY 2 of the Clearly Whimsy Stamps release!  I have the honor of Guest Designing this week!

Whimsy Stamps is releasing 6 new clear stamp sets and 6 coordinating die/die sets, and they will be available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store and Whimsy Stamps retailers TOMORROW.

Yesterday the team introduced HAPPY EVERYTHING and DISTRESSED BACKGROUND AND INK SPLATS, and today they are showcasing SMARTY PANTS and SCHOOL SPIRIT stamp sets and dies!  Hop on over to the Whimsy blog to take a peek at the new products.

I am sharing using a set that you'll see more of tomorrow from the Design Team called Time for Tea & Time for Tea Additions and coordinating dies.

Everything Better

For this card I went in a totally different way with the set which hopefully shows its versatility.  I used the banner stamps included in the Time for Tea sets for my background.  I chose four ink colors and stamped my triangles in a random pattern, covering my card front.

I stamped my sentiment and then added the little tea bag (SO CUTE!!) and my favorite stamp in the entire set, the cute little lemons!  They are so adorable!

Red White Blue Party 1.4

Using the banners again I created this card  This time however I used them in the traditional way to make a homey, patriotic card.  All that's missing is some fireworks and watermelon and we're ready for a party!  To line up my banners I used a pencil and drew a line where I wanted them to go and then stamped.  When my ink was fairly dry, I erased the line and had my row of banners nicely lined up.

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 into the draw:
