SWEET STUFF and Sneak Peek for Whimsy Stamps!!
And Here Ya Go!!!!
Oh Boy!!! Happy Tuesday and I am hoping your week has started out with a BANG!! Our clocks have all been re-set and we are all back in the swing of things...aren't we???? lol
I am so excited and humbled because the sweet and very talented Denise at Whimsy Stamps has invited me to show you a SNEAK PEEK and also to take part in her amazingly talented DT's Blog Hop tomorrow for the absolutely precious March release of Whimsy Stamps including sentiments and dies!!! Gosh...please come back and visit me tomorrow and I will direct you to the place to begin....soooooo exciting!!!! And so much SWEET STUFF along the hopping way!!!!
For my Sneaky Peeky card I used the cute, cute, cute "Celebrate Big" ellie by Crissy Armstrong for Whimsy Stamps. You will see in my SWEET STUFF today that the stamp also includes the "celebrate big" sentiment. The base of my card is Bazzill, all matting is PTI, and the DP is from the Let's Party Paper Pad by Best Creations, also in my SWEET STUFF!!!! All background panels are machine stitched. The image was stamped onto Cryogen White and colored with Copics, adding Glossy Accents to the balloon. When I think of elephants, I think of the circus so I had to make a BIG TOP using PTI ribbons and a checked button tied with twine...how did I do???? Does it look kinda like a circus tent??? I also used one of the Treasured Moments Sentiment Tickets, designed by Ann Vento at Raindrop Echo Designs, and cut out with the marvelous Ticket Die.
For the inside I used complementary festive papers. On the first panel I also used a darling star border cut out with a Marianne Design Creatables die which was a gift to me from the amazingly talented Christina. If you have never visted Christina, you should have a peek at her phenomenal work!! It is STUNNING!!! Thanks Christina!!! You will notice that I threaded the border with matching hot pink and turquoise ribbons. I also added a pocket for a gift card. The festive jotting panel only has a knotted ribbon.
SWEET STUFF!!!!...so today, let's celebrate little!!! Today's SWEET STUFF will hopefully make you remember the big RELEASE DAY tomorrow where there will be MORE and BIGGER SWEET STUFF all along the hopping way!!!!
