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:

Hope to see you again tomorrow for Day 2 of our release sneak peeks!

Circle of Friends Blog Hop

Hi everyone and welcome to our Circle of Friends blog hop especially for our dear DT member and friend Bev Rochester

Unfortunately, Bev has had to take a little break from crafting over the past few months due to ill health. We are missing her here at Whimsy and want to let her know that we are thinking about her and wishing her a speedy recovery. Even though the Whimsy family is scattered all around the world, we have come together as a circle of friends to show Bev our love and support by each making her a card. Although this hop is for Bev, we do hope you will hop along with us to support our wonderful teammate and friend.

If you arrived here from Tammy Louise's Blog, then you are in the right place! If you’ve happened upon this post by chance and would like to hop with us, hop on over to the Whimsy Stamps blog to begin the hop.


For my creation, I have a card using one of the Whimsy Prints precolored and die cut images from the set Love and Friendship. I have not had much time for crafting lately and my coloring skills have suffered, so it was great to be able to use one of these beautifully precolored images. All the Elisabeth Bell Whimsy Prints are colored by the super talented Simonne Clay! I also used some Designer Grunge 6x6 papers and the Elegant Butterflies Dies, Double Scallop Doily Die, Country Heart Die, and Vines Die Set, all available from Whimsy Stamps.



In case you missed any part of the hop today, here is a full hop list in hopping order:

I am actually the last stop on the hop, so you have reached the end. We all hope to have brought some smiles to our dear friend Bev. We are all thinking of you sweetie and hoping you'll be back soon. Sending huge hugs!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
