Whimsy Stamps June New Release! - Day 1 Inspiration

Hello friends!
Whimsy Stamps (Clearly Whimsy Stamps edition) NEW RELEASE is here!
Today and every day for the next THREE days, I will be sharing inspiration with you for each new clear stamp set and Shapeology craft dies that are being released this month which will be available for purchase at the Whimsy Stamps store starting this WEDNESDAY, June 8th!
So please join me here every day including the Whimsy Stamps Inspirations Blog for a peek at each set with some inspiration & of course special prize opportunities!

Today we are introducing "Need More", "Squeezed" with "Squeezed" coordinating dies + a special bonus surprise with the fun new "Whimsy Stamps Paper Packs & Enamel Dots" (designed by the talented Tracy Wray from our rubber design team)!

Wow!  So many exciting products coming out this month...and there will be more tomorrow!!

For for my first set of projects today, I have used the "Need More" stamp set along with a sneak peek of another die cut set that will be shared more in-depth tomorrow:
I adore this super cute stamp set!  I am a true die hard coffee fan to the core!  In the winter time, though, I don't mind to have a few cups of tea in the evening to help warm me up! :)

I have stamped the tea bag and masked it so that when I stamped my tea cup, the tea bag would show as if it is steeping in the cup.  I colored it with my Copic markers and fussy cut it out and popped it up over my gold embossed sentiment banner that I have also popped up over the background.

To make the background, I have just clear heat embossed the sentiment from the stamp set and then used my watercolors to go over top of it which creates a sort of resist so that the words show up.  I've added this panel onto some blue card stock with matching papers (which actually come from the up-coming card kit that I'll be sharing with you on Wednesday)!  I attached all of this onto an A2 sized white card base and then added a few gold sequins.


So for my next project set, I've used the "Squeezed" stamp set with the Coordinating Dies:
I think I had so much fun creating with this set!  It has a really nice Summer feel and who doesn't love a good glass of lemonade in the Summer?!! :)

So starting off with the glassine treat bag, I have filled it up with some sour lemon heads...I use to love these as a kid!  I thought it would be a fun gift idea for this stamp set!  I have stamped all of the images, colored them with my Copic markers and cut them out with their corresponding die.  I have added a little extra glitter to portions of the images.  On the bag, I have colored the background a bit with some soft blue color and then stamped a heart from the set  within the blue color.

Both the card and the bag were decorated in the same way with the die cutting out the circles with the Whimsy Stamps Stitched Circle die set and then I used a scallop circle punch to punch out a yellow scalloped circle around it.  I also die cut a banner from some fun plaid papers (also in the up coming card kit) and placed them behind the scallop circle panels.

The sentiments on both projects were heat embossed in black.

And check out the fun faces in the stamp set!!  I just ADORE that cute little sour face in there! LOL!

Be sure to pop over to the Whimsy Stamps blog  to see a peek at the creations with links to the other guest designer's and design team's blogs. There will be chances to win prizes, so make sure you join in today and every day for all the new release festivities!  

I hope you've enjoyed all of my creations today!
Thanks for dropping in and do come back again tomorrow as there will be even more products to share!!

I used to be a coffee drinker only, but that changed 9 weeks ago where I started drinking tea mornings and evenings and coffee at work. Now I have close to 10 different teas available, I don't really have a sweet tooth, but when I do I find having a cup of tea helps. I really like your own made paper, like it's tea stained and it's a fun alternative for adding a sentiment. Your lemonade designs are so fresh and summery!

laurie said...

Love all your card sets! That lemonade makes me thirsty..yum!

Shelly said...
