Hello and happy New Year readers! I'm starting off the New Year with some exciting news! Last November I was invited to join the Creative Team at Whimsy Stamps and today is my official debut! I am delighted and honored to work in this industry with such talented, creative and kind women. I'm humbled that my work has caught the eye of some of these amazing stamp companies and owners. And, I feel lucky to be able to help represent and promote these small, independently owned businesses with my creations.
Today Whimsy Stamps is debuting some of the new products available from the January release! You can see all of the new release products here on the Whimsy website. My slimline card features the new Giraffe Hello stamp set and I just loved the sentiments available with this stamp set.
The base of this card is made from Neenah Solar White Smooth carsdtock. For the first layer, I cut a sheet of banana yellow cardstock measuring 8 1/4" x 3 1/4". Using the Slimline Scallop Die, I cut the frame from kraft cardstock. Behind each oval circle in the slimline die, I placed a small piece of a vintage map designer series paper. I stamped all of the giraffes in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock and cut them using my Scan & Cut. I colored the images in with Copic markers. I added some highlights to each image with a Uniball white gel pen.
I adhered the images to the card using foam adhesive for added dimension. I stamped the sentiment in Versafine Clair Pinecone ink on white cardstock. I notched the right end of the sentiment strip before adhering it to the card with foam adhesive.
I hope you have enjoyed today's card. Tomorrow I'll be sharing another January release product from Whimsy Stamps! Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
