Whimsy Sneak Peek - Sentiments and WINNER and SWEET STUFF!!
Happy Monday Everyone and welcome to SNEAK PEEK Day #4 at Whimsy Stamps. I was so honored and humbled when Denise asked me if I would participate in the Sneak Peeks and the Blog Hop on Wednesday to showcase the new Whimsy Stamps which will be released on Wednesday, February 9. They are all so cute! For a listing of blogs participating in the Sneak Peeks please see the Whimsy Inspirations Blog.
Today is the Sneaks of the Sentiments which have coordinating dies. I only had the sentiments so after cutting out the stamp sentiment by hand I can assure you that you will love the new dies! I made a card and a matching envelo-box for the sentiment. The base and matting for both the card and box are Bazzill, the yellow gingham paper is from my dear friend Suzan and the other DP is from the Country Rose Paperpad by Kars.
For my card, I used the darling little Spring Sitter Bunny which is also from the new collection to be released on the 9th, stamped her on XPress It Blending Card 3 times and colored her with Copics. I cut out 2 of the images and propped each layer up on dimensional dots. A bit of Stickles and Prisma glitter was placed on butterflies. For the vertical I used a wide yellow grosgrain, topped with a yellow/white gingham, and finally added a narrow gingham bow to dangle a jeweled butterfly. The floral treatment is all made with flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.
For the presentation envelo-box I used all the same materials with the addition of the Whimsy Sentiment, a Magnolia Doohickey Tag, and an organza butterfly.
Since the card and the presentation box were so decorated I decided to leave the inside of the card very simple but it still looks finished to me.
