Hi everyone and welcome to the first sneak peek day of the Clearly Whimsy Stamps October 2014 release!!
Over the next 3 days we will reveal the new October 2014 Clearly Whimsy Stamps products. We are releasing 7 new clear stamp sets and 5 dies/die sets this week, and they will be available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store today and selected Whimsy Stamps retailers on Saturday.
This month we are thrilled to welcome Michelle Short and Lisa Henke as our Guest Designers. Welcome ladies! We are so happy that you are joining us for this release!
Today we are revealing the Penguin Fun 4x6” stamp set and Tremendous Triangles 4x6” stamp set, together with the coordinating Penguin Fun die set and the Tremendous Triangles die set. Hop on over to the Whimsy blog for more details.
When I started designing for this release, I couldn't wait to use Penguin Fun! I started out by diecutting my penguin and stamping. These images are perfect for those of us who don't like to color! I did add a few details with Copics YR68, N1, and Colorless Blender. Then I was on to create my background. I sponged Tumbled Glass Distress Ink for my sky and added in stamped snowflakes from this set with white pigment ink.
I created my snowy hills using the Stitched Border Trio Dies. I coated my hills with chunky glitter from Martha Stewart. My penguin was added with foam adhesive and I just think he is adorable skating down the hill! The last detail was adding some Glossy Accents over the eyes!
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:
