Whimsy Rubber Stamps Sneak Peek

Hello and welcome to Whimsy Stamps sneak peek - Day 1!

Whimsy stamps is having a new rubber stamp release on february the 9th and the Design Team is showing off these new gorgeous rubber stamps starting today!

There are going to be rubber stamps/sets from Crissy Armstrong, Meljen's Designs, Raindropecho and Kenny K, and there are even going to be a couple of dies to go with a couple of images.

Today we are showing you a preview of new stamps by Crissy Armstrong.

For my card I used the stamp Valerie's Spring Rain from the Crissy Armstrong collection. Isn't it just the sweetest??!! The sentiment is from a digital sentiment set by raindropecho, just released a few days ago. I thought it would be perfect for this stamp.

Like I said in my previous post, I am taking a mini break from pinks, so I have used yellow shades again. It is just such a spring-y color and that is just what I can't wait for!!

I used some derwent coloursoft pencils and baby oil for blending, and then a couple of copics for the skin. My papers are from stampin up. Again I distressed and sewed along the edges. I embellished with some paper flower which I made by punching them out with a martha stewart punch and then crumbling them up and layered two of them together with a brad. I also added some black gingham ribbon and sheer blue ribbon, used some corner die cuts (cuttlebug) with sticky pearls, and some extra nestablities shapes almost hidden behind the image and sentiment. I sprayed the whole card with glimmer mist for some sparkles and also used a little bit of stickles glitter.

Here is a closeup of the image.

I would also like to enter my card to these challenges:

Be sure to check out the rest of the sneak peeks today and the rest of the week , I know they are all amazing. You can find the DT's blog links here.
