Whimsy Stamps New Release - Day 3 Inspiration - Get in Line Intro + Video with MISTI Tool!

Hello friends!  It's finally Friday! YAY!
I think we are due to take a trip to give our new grandbabies some kisses this weekend and I can't wait to see how much they're grown over the last couple of months! :)

Today is DAY 3 (final day) of the Whimsy Stamps New Release Inspiration Week!
So be sure that you check out the Whimsy Inspirations Blog for more inspiration from the rest of the design team as well as a chance to win some prizes!!  - Don't miss out!

So do you remember my sneak peek from last week?! - this was it!
I am so excited about this new stamp set that has come out called "Get in Line".  It's probably one of my favorites from this release!  :)  Here's what I've made:
I've used this stamp set to make a plaid background with Valentine colors for my card.  I've also included the Scripty Word Love die from the new release as well.  And because I think tiny hearts are a wonderful element to add to any design, I have taken the new released Puzzle Pieces die set to cut out a few hearts for my card too.  The pink scallop edge was made with the Basic Borders Trio die set.

This clear stamp set has many, many, many versatile uses for it and I'm sure you've seen a few examples with it from the other design team members the last few days (If you haven't, be sure to check it out on the Whimsy Inspirations Blog!), but there are a few tips and tricks to know about this stamp set when you get ready to use it.  So I thought it would be a great idea to put together a video to share how I've made this plaid background:

Please be sure to click the like button if this was helpful to you!  What do you think of the new "Get in Line" stamp set?  Would this be something you would enjoy playing with?

To give you an additional idea using this same set, I've also made this card with it:
I took the image with the triple lines and stamped it in a rainbow of colors on a masked off area of a white card base.  I also took the stitched lines from the set and inked it up with black ink to make another element to my design.  The sentiment that I've used to stamp in the center is from this month's new release as well called Painted Sayings.  I love the little splatter images that come with it too!  This is such a fun set to mix and match words with.

I hope you've enjoyed the Whimsy Stamps January 2016 new release and have been getting lots of inspiration this week from the design team!  Have fun shopping!!

Thanks for stopping in with me today!  See you again tomorrow!! :)

First, you delight us with a fantastic plaid and glittery hearts love card that transforms the 'doozy' of a sketch into a 'do-able'! Then, you offer us a marvelous 'how to' video that takes the mystery of creating a plaid background. And if that's not enough, you deliver a dazzling rainbow striped card! A triple treat today! Thank you!!
