Whimsy Stamps - March Showcase Day 3

Hello and welcome to Day 3 of our March Rubber & Die Release Showcase!

On Wednesday (21 March) Whimsy Stamps released this month's rubber designs, new Shapeology dies and new Shape EZ templates. From then until 27 March the Whimsy Stamps DT and Special Guests are showcasing these fabulous new goodies with a daily mini blog hop and I am part of today’s hop!

Each mini blog hop has a new release prize hidden somewhere along the way and you have 24hrs to enter each prize draw.


Here is my card for today's showcase. I used the stamp"Birthday cupcake" from the Meljen's Designs Collection, along with a stamp from the new set "Vintage Birthday Tabs 1" from Whimsy's Raindrop Echo Designs. Of course the sentiment was cut out using the tabs 1 die.

Photobucket

What a fun stamp to color and create with!!

I used my Faber Castell Polychromos pencils to color. Part of the cupcake was stamped twice and then cut out and adhered with pop up dots.

The papers are from My Minds Eye and Stampin Up.

I wanted to play along in this week's My Favorite Things Weekly Sketch Challenge again, so I decided to follow their sketch to make my card. Here is what this week's sketch looks like.


I used an oval shape instead of a rectangle, and my bow is on the top right instead of teh bottom left, I thought these changes fit better into my design. But other than that it is about the same sketch.

I would like to enter this to a few more challenges:


To be entered into today's mini blog hop prize draw, be sure to leave a comment on ALL of the DT's posts listed below by 12.00PM EST tomorrow. All winners will be announced on the Whimsy blog on 28 March.
