You are so sweet

Hello and welcome to Day 6 of Whimsy Stamps July Rubber stamp and Die Release Showcase!

On Wednesday (25 July) Whimsy Stamps released this month's new rubber designs, new Shapeology dies and new Shape EZ by TLC. From then until 31 July 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!


For today's card I used the stamp set " Touch of Sweetness Notables " from Whimsy's sentiment collection by Raindrop Echo. I just love everything strawberry, so of course I had to have this set! I used the new notables 5 die to cut out my sentiment.


I got out my copics to color the strawberries. 

 As you can see, I used a couple layers of half doilies. The green one was done using Whimsy Stamps double scallop doily shapeology die, the white one is a store bought doily. After adding the ribbon, I adhered a large prima flower to the ribbon, tucked some flourishes under the flower. The flourishes were cut out using Whimsy's "Vines" die set .

To finish it off I added a simple bow with matching ribbon.

Don't forget to leave comments on all the participating Design Team Members blogs.

Good luck and happy hopping!
