Whimsy Stamps - September Release - Review Day


It's time for the Whimsy Stamps Review Blog Hop, where we are showing you some more fabulous projects using the newly released products. And of course there will another prize hidden in one of the Design Team blogs today, so hopefully you'll join us in this hop! All hop winners will be announced on the Whimsy Inspirations Blog tomorrow!

For today's card I created a pocket card, using one of the new gorgeous stamps by Kenny K. This card/image is very different from my usual cute cards that I create, but I had just as much fun with this one!

Products used:
Stamps: Bow by Kenny K, Seasons Greetings Notables 7, Holiday Postage Stamps, Fun Life Tickets sentiments (all whimsy stamps)
Tools: Notables 7 die, postage stamp die, ticket die, holly and berries die, tab 1 die
Papers: Neenah, SU, Authentique designer paper (a couple years old)
Embellishments: ribbon, gold cord, glitter

Here is another view.
Copic colors used:
Hair: E31, E35, E37, E47
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R20, R22, R27 (R-s for cheeks and lips)
Bow: R20, R22, R24, R27, R29
Present (and eyes): YG91, YG93, YG95, YG67

And finally here is a view with the insert out of the pocket.I really love how this turned out!
I followed a tutorial by Lori - one of Whimsy's past DT members, which can be found in Issue #8 of Whimsy' free online magazine. 
You can also purchase (pre-order) a print copy of  the magazin Tips and Tutorials Vol. 1 found HERE.

I hope you'll be able to join us in today's hop for a chance to win. Be sure to leave comments on the blogs below.
