Whimsy Stamps New Release - Day 2 with Clearly Whimsy Sets!

Hello friends!
Welcome to Day 2 of the Whimsy Stamps New Release Inspiration!
Have you checked out the entire release yet?!  There are SO MANY really adorable products that just came out yesterday!  Be sure to check out the Whimsy Inspirations Blog so you can see all of them in addition enter to win some "Whimsy Cash"!

Today, my inspiration involves the Clearly Whimsy Stamps sets from the new release this month!
Check it out below:
Puzzle time and "cuddle time" are just great for Valentine's Day!  :)  LOL!
I was going for a masculine style look with my design here using the new release set called "You Complete Me".  I love the different variations that you can come up with for this set!  In addition to this clear stamp set, there are also coordinating dies that go with it called Puzzle Pieces.

I found some grid looking paper from my stash and thought it would be perfect to use for this set.  I kept the colors gray and cream with just a pop of red for the hearts that were also die cut from the Puzzle Pieces die set.  I covered them with some glossy accents.  I took a couple of the puzzle pieces and popped them up with foam tape.  A great card to give to hubby!  :)

For my second creation:
How stinkin' cute is this fellow?!!  He makes me smile! :)
I have used this fun new release Clearly Whimsy set called Just a Note.  It comes with an adorable pencil and some other really cute images within the set, so check it out!
I was doing a little "pun" with my image and added the "just a note" sentiment on him from the new release Clearly Whimsy set called Everyday Mini Sentiments.  These are the perfect size to add to many different projects!  I love it!  The "Hi!" bubble was colored and popped up on my design with some foam tape.  (This image also comes from the Just a Note set.)

I have also taken some heart papers from my stash and cut along the edge of them with the Whimsy Shapeology Spiral Notebook Border die, but I didn't cut the one edge so it would leave it in tact.  (To see how to do this, check out my video - CLICK HERE.)  I also thought it would be cute to add a couple of wooden hearts that I've glued above the image.

These were so fun to use and I can't wait to create more with them!
Hope you will come by again tomorrow to see what else I've made!
Hope you've enjoyed my inspiration today!  Thanks for stopping by! :)

Yepp Mr stupid robot has started with me from scratch this morning. I agree why we have to prove we are not a robot to a robot, what does it all prove it drives me nuts. I think it has something to do with google + or there abouts....sure is annoying.

LOVE your displays here today Vicki you are one great creator.xx {aNNie}

Vicki your creations always look fantastic, the designs are brilliant I wish I could come up with something like this, they are fabulously clean and simple and always look like top of the line designer cards, excellent work.

Patricia St Martin said...

Both of the card are so cute. I have a puzzle die cut and for the life of me could not think of why I got it. Thanks for the great idea now maybe I will use it. I even have the same paper. Like the way you used different types of paper and foam. Looks nice.
Hugs Pat
