Hello friends and happy Friday! I can't believe May is here already, but then again March and April were kind of a coronavirus blur! Today I am happy to be celebrating with my fellow Creative Team members a fun new release of products from Whimsy Stamps! This slimline card features the new "Beach Hippos" stamp set and these cuties are ready for some summer fun.
*A full supply list is located at the end of this post.
This slimline card measures 8 1/2" x 3 1/2" inches. Slimline cards are designed to fit inside a regular #10 business sized envelope and require no additional postage. The base of this slimline card is made from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. Using the Wavy Edgers die set, the sand is cut from Basic Gray cardsock and the ocean waves are cut from Coastal Cabana cardstock. I added a thin layer of Lawn Fawn's Chunky Glitter on the sand for added sparkle. The background was made from sponging Tim Holtz Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide ink through the Whimsy Stamps Sun Rays stencil. I stamped the sentiment in the upper left corner in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I stamped all three hippos and the starfish from the Beach Hippos stamp set on Neenah Solar White smooth cardstock and colored them with Copic markers. I added highlights to the images with a Uniball white gel pen. I added the hippos and starfish to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension. Lastly, I added a coat of Clear Wink of Stella to the hippos for added sparkle.
Please check out the Whimsy Stamps website to see what other fun new release products are available.
Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend!
