ERIN BAILEY
TAMMY LOUISE CUNLIFFE
DEB ROUTLEDGE (Special Guest)
BEATE JOHNS (Special Guest)
IRIS WIECHMANN
DENA CONCIENNE (Special Guest)

Remember that the entire new release is available to buy right now from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favourites.



This is as close as I get to Clean and Simple!! For my card I used Bazzill for the base and double matting, the DP is all from the We R Memorykeepers Love Struck paper pad, and the background panels are machine stitched. The image is by Crissy Armstrong for the new release at Whimsy and is Heart Hugs. The image is colored with Flexmarkers, Promarkers, and Copics. To make the bear look a little "fuzzier" I used some blending solution on a cotton ball to dab him softly. For the horizontal I used some satin/organza ribbon and for the left corner a Paper Heart Doily topped with a Venice Lace Heart. The sentiment is from the Whimsy Ticket Sentiments cut out with a Whimsy Ticket Die and is clipped to the image panel with a mini clothes pin. To finish the front I used some WOC Self-Adhesive Pearls to soften the corners.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check the Whimsy Inspirations blog tomorrow for more new release creations!
