Whimsy Stamps - Sneak Peek Blog Hop Day 1

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 card, I used both the Happy Everything and Distressed Backgrounds and Ink Splats sets, plus the coordinating large word die.  To create my card, I started with a 4 1/4" gray card base, and stamped the crosshatch image a few times in versamark ink to create a border.  I then heat embossed the pattern with clear embossing powder.  Next, I stamped one of the sentiments from Happy Everything in versamark, then heat embossed with white powder.  I die cut Happy from green CS, and adhered it to the front of the card with Tombo glue.  To finish up, I embellished with teal enamel dots.

Here's a peek of the new goodies being released on Saturday:
