New May Release at Whimsy Stamps...and SWEET STUFF!!!!

Hi everyone and welcome to Day 1 of the ...
Whimsy Stamps May rubber stamp & die release!


Over the next 5 days we will reveal the new May 2014 Whimsy Stamps products.  We are releasing a fabulous selection of new goodies this month, and the entire release will be available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store and from all good Whimsy Stamps retailers from Wednesday (21st May).

We are thrilled to welcome Danni and Linda as our Guest Designers this month. Welcome girls - we can't wait to see what you have created!


PRIZE ALERT ... We have hidden FOUR prizes of 2 new release rubber stamps somewhere on the DT’s blogs throughout our 5-day release event this week. As the location of the prizes are secret, be sure to leave a comment on ALL the stops on each daily blog hop to maximize your chance of winning! We will draw the lucky winners over the weekend and announce them on the Whimsy blog next week.

Today we are excited to show you the brand new Sylvia Zet and Cathy Delanssay stamps released this month. For a full reveal of these stamps, check out the Whimsy blog!

For today's project, I have inked up the darling little Sylvia Zet designed image for Wee Stamps at Whimsy Stamps, Maya, and have used the Butterfly Frame die with sentiments from the Fluttering By Collection, both designed by Simonne Clay for Whimsy Stamps. I have made a purse shaped gift bag and matching mirrored compact card with inspiration from sweet Abby in NJ.


The sweet image is colored with Copics, adding a bit of Prisma Glitter to her wings and covering the rosebud with clear Wink of Stella.


To make the purse I used a couple of sheets of 12X12 DP from the Sofiero Collection by Maja Designs and fashioned it into a purse shape. Without the handles the purse measures 9 inches X 5 3/4 inches (23 cm X 15 cm). I used both pink and white pre-gathered lace, some pre-pleated satin ribbon, and organza ribbon for the top trim. The rose cabochons are from WOC. To make the handles I threaded pearl beads onto jewelry wire. The purse was finished with a velcro closure.


I used the new Butterfly Frame die on the back with a sentiment from the Fluttering By sentiment set, adding a touch of Prisma Glitter to the butterflies on the frame.


For the mirrored compact card I used silver metallic cardstock adding the same trims as the purse...and on the inside another diecut with the Butterfly Frame and sentiment from Fluttering By. The card ties together with narrow satin ribbon...And of course I could not resist adding "Hello, Beautiful!" with a Sharpie Paint Pen...haha



So now it's time for you to continue today's hop! Don’t forget to leave a comment at every stop  to be entered into the draws to win some new release rubber:




Be sure to visit the Whimsy blog tomorrow for our second day of sneak peeks.
