For my sample today I chose the gorgeous new Li’l Montana image. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock,. It was cut and embossed with the second largest Label Eight die. It was colored with Copic Markers (Skin: E50, E51, E53   Hair: C3, C5, C7, C9   Shirt: BG10, BG11, BG34   Pants/Dog: C00, C1, C3   Flowers and leaves: Y15, Y!7, Y38, G21, G24, G28   Basket: E31, E35, E37    Ground: W0, W1, W3, W5, W7).

The image was was masked. Additional mask were cut with Spellbinders Whimsy dies and adhered over the label. The image was  airbrushed and the clouds were colored with Copic Markers(W00, W0, W1).  The edges of the image were stitched before it was adhered to white cardstock, cut and embossed with the largest Decorative Label Eight Nestabilities die (I can’t stop using it!). That layer was adhered to a 4 1/8″ x 11″ piece of light blue cardstock, that had been folded in half.

Part of a sentiment from Raindrop Echo Design’s new A Touch of Furniture was stamped in Tuxedo Black ink on a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with the second smallest of the Standard Circle SM Nestabilities dies. It was adhered to the upper left hand side of the image layers. Three Rhinestones from the Sleek Strips Silver Rhinestones under the sentiment finish off the card.

~ Apple Blossom ~                                  ~ Chloe ~
 

~ Picked Sweet ~                                     ~ Sun Kissed ~

The Whimsy Stamps DT and Special Guests have been previewing these beautiful stamps for the past 2 days, and today we are celebrating their release with a BLOG HOP!

The hop starts today (Wednesday March 7th at 12.00PM EST) and ends on Wednesday March 14th at 12.00PM EST.

For this hop we have five different prize draws! One lucky hopper will win the entire new release of ALL four stamps. We also have four mini candy stops throughout the hop where you can enter to win a new release stamp! We’re not telling you where they are, so be sure to complete the hop to find them!

If you would like to hop along with us today, please CLICK HERE to start the hop at Debbie’s blog.

For my sample I stamped Chloe in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock. The image was cut and embossed with the largest Label 22 Nestabilities die and colored with Copic Markers (Apples: YG01, YG03, YG17    Basket: E31, E33, E35, E37, E37    Skin: E000, E01, E11, R20    Hair: Y26, E33, E35, E37    Shirt: Y13, Y15, Y17    Pants: B93, B95, B97, B99    Hairband: R08, R27, R39     Ground: YG03, YG63, YG67, E31). The image was airbrushed with Copic Marker B12, after I added a few dots with masking fluid. Once the background was airbrushed and the masking fluid rubbed off, I added Glossy Accents over the dots, hoping it would look a bit like spring rain.

A 2 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ piece of My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up patterned paper was adhered to a 4 1/2″ square of the same paper pack. The edges were sanded and stitched before the paper was adhered to the card front, a piece of Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with a Grand Scallop Square Nestabilities die. A paper Doily was adhered to the upper left hand side, and some cheesecloth to the lower right before the image was adhered to the center with dimensionals.

A sentiment from Every Day Circle Postmarks was stamped in Rich Cocoa Memento Ink. The center was colored with Copic Markers Y15 and Y17. The sentiment was cut out and adhered to a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with a Eyelet Pendant Shapeabilities die. Parts of a sanded finish off the card.

Finally, here is a complete blog hop list in hopping order:
