Time for Tea - Whimsy Blog Hop

Hi everyone and welcome to the Clearly Whimsy Stamps June Release BLOG HOP!
 


All 6 new clear stamp sets AND 6 coordinating die/die sets are now available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store and the DT and GDT are celebrating their release with a GRAND BLOG HOP! The hop starts today (Saturday June 29th at 8.00AM EDT) and ends on Sunday June 30th at midnight EDT. If you would like to hop along with us today, please CLICK HERE to start the hop at the Whimsy Stamps blog. Here is a complete blog hop list in hopping order:

One lucky hopper will win 2 stamp sets and 1 die set from the Time For Tea line.  To enter the draw, simply leave a comment at EVERY stop along the hop!
 
Today we are excited to share the final set of stamps and dies from this release - TIME FOR TEA:



For my hop cards, I have used the Time for Tea stamp set and the Time for Tea Die Set.


This card was very quick and easy to put together. I used some ribbon scraps and randomly glued those to my card base which is a Kraft card from Stampin' Up. Then I stamped the sentiment and frame using Memento Ink on white card. Then used the die from the Time for Tea Dies to cut the shape. Then used foam tape to glue that over the ribbons.

And this card....

I used the sketch from The Paper Players challenge with some designer paper and ribbons. Then I stamped the images with Memento ink and cut with the Time for Tea die set. I added small liquid pearl accents on the sentiment cut outs.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and this week for our new Clearly Whimsy Stamps release!

Happy Everything

Hi everyone and welcome to the first sneak peek day of the ...

Over the next 3 days we will reveal the new June 2014 Clearly Whimsy Stamps products. We are releasing 6 new clear stamp sets and 6 coordinating die/die sets this week, and they will be available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store and selected Whimsy Stamps retailers on Saturday. This month we are thrilled to welcome Jen Carter and Becky Carafa as our Guest Designers. Jen and Becky will be joining us for our 3 day release event and sharing their wonderful creations featuring our June release. Welcome girls! Today we are revealing the HAPPY EVERYTHING 4x6 stamp set together with its coordinating die sets, PLUS the DISTRESSED BACKGROUNDS AND INK SPLATS 4x6 stamp set. Hop on over to the Whimsy blog for more details.


For my first card, I used the stamp set Happy Everything and the Party Time Die set. This stamp set has lots of options for creating your cards and the dies coordinate perfectly.


I stamped the celebrate word stamp using Memento Lady Bug, Lilac Posies, and Tangelo in alternating rows. Then I stamped the balloons and used the dies to cut out two of the stamps and used Olba glue to pop those up. Then I stamped the balloon strings.

This card fits the challenge at CAS Sunday of Birthdays.

And for this card I have used the Distressed Background and Ink Splats along with the already released stamp set Happy Hello. The sentiment is from a new set that will be revealed tomorrow. ;)


Again, I have used Memento inks, this time in the Tuxedo Black, Bahama Blue, Pear Tart, and Dandelion colors. I've randomly stamped the circles, stars, and the background images to create this fun card for my son's 5th grade graduation.


PRIZE ALERT ... We have hidden a fabulous prize of a $15 GIFT CERTIFICATE at one of the stops on today’s hop! We will draw the lucky winner from the comments left on today’s design team posts (listed below), so be sure to visit everyone and leave a comment to be entered into the draw:

Whimsy Stamps March Release Sneak Peek Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of our March rubber and die release!

We are releasing a fabulous selection of new rubber stamps, clear stamps, shapeology dies and papers this month.  Today the Whimsy DT is holding a blog hop to share sneak peeks of some of the brand new Sentiment Sets and Shapeology Dies. The entire new release will be available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store on WEDNESDAY! Pssst...I have a secret, if you pop to the Whimsy store now, you can buy the new release today!

We have hidden FOUR prizes of 2 new release rubber stamps somewhere on the DT’s blogs throughout the 5-day release event.  As the location of the prizes are secret, be sure to leave a comment on ALL the stops on each daily blog hop to maximize your chance of winning! We will draw the lucky winners over the weekend and announce them here on the Whimsy blog on Monday (March 24th).

I created a card today using the new Build a Banner Die set and Clearly Whimsy Stamps Sweet as Candy Sentiments set - created by Simonne Clay of SC Design. Both of these products are available in the Whimsy Stamps shop now. 
 
I used white card stock as the base and then used the banner die set and cut out the banners with my Big Shot. The papers are Bo Bunny. I glued the banners to a piece of Lilac Twine and then added some button accents on the ends.  The sentiments were stamps with Memento ink in coordinating colors.

For my project today I have used the new Sweet as Candy products - Large Word Die and Sweet Sentiments set

 I used white card stock for the base and stamped the birthday wishes sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento ink. I used a scrap piece of gray card stock for another layer and then a scrap piece of black card stock to cut the "sweet" word die. I embellished with polka dot ribbon and some sticky gems.
