On Wednesday (22 February) Whimsy Stamps released this month's rubber designs and new Shapeology dies. From then until 28 February the Whimsy Stamps DT and Special Guests are showcasing these fabulous new stamps and dies with a daily mini blog hop.
Each mini blog hop has a new release prize hidden somewhere along the way and you have 24hrs to enter each prize draw.
For today's card I used the super adorable stamp "Sympathy Bugs" from Whimsy's Sylvia Zet collection. Aren't these bugs sweet?
I decided to create a "hang in there" card with them, but I think these cuties would make such a cute "I miss you" card, or anniversary or love....
I used my pencils and baby oil for coloring.
Designer papers are from a 6x6 pack by My Minds Eye. The sentiment is a really old one by stampin up. I embellished with some lace, seam binding ribbon, and twine. The corners were cut out using Whimsy's brand new Corners Shapeology dies. To finish it off I did some machine sewing and added a little bit of glitter.
I would love to enter my card to the following challenges:
- ColorQ challenge - colors dusty durango, lucky limeaid, baha breeze, basic grey
