Whimsy's Cottage Cutie Sneak Peek

Hi everyone!

Yesterday we announced the exciting news that the amazing Elisabeth Bell has joined the Whimsy Stamps family of artists.

Elisabeth’s debut release for Whimsy Stamps is the Little Cottage Cuties line of rubber stamps and will be available to buy from the Whimsy store tomorrow (7 March 2012). In the lead up to their release, the Whimsy DT and Special Guests are excited to share with you 2 days packed full of previews of these gorgeous stamps.

Today we are sharing projects made with Chloe and Picked Sweet, and we are holding a 24hr mini blog hop to celebrate!


We have hidden one Chloe rubber stamp and one Picked Sweet rubber stamp somewhere along the way, so be sure to leave a comment on ALL of the DT's posts listed below by 12.00PM EST tomorrow to be entered into the prize draws.


Here is my creation for today's mini hop.


I used the stamp "Picked Sweet", which I have to say is my personal favorite from this release.
I colored her with my Faber Castell Polychromos pencils.

The beautiful paper is by Prima Markerting (Madeline collection).
I embellished with a few prima flowers and pearls, some linen thread, and flourishes which were cut out using Whimsy's "vines" shapeology die.

I decided to add a little bit of gold glitter to the flowers and the designer paper. The fence on the bottom was punched out with a Martha Stewart punch.

I am entering this card to the following challenges:

Thank you for stopping by and don't forget to pop back to the Whimsy Inspirations blog tomorrow for our new release BLOG HOP!!
