Whimsy Stamps - April Rubber Stamp Release Day 2

Happy Tuesday and Welcome to the 2nd Day of Whimsy Stamps Rubber Stamp and Die Release Blog Hop!

 Like yesterday, there is a fabulous prize up for grabs today, and then tomorrow, we are having our grand blog hop and a bigger prize, so be sure to hop along on both days to be entered.
Today we are showing you creations made with stamps by Mi Ran, Krista Heij-Barber and Wee Stamps.
I used the new rubber stamp "Steam Punk" by Mi Ran. I had lots of fun coloring up this image. I wanted to try another color besides blonde or brown for the hair, this is my first time doing a grayish black color. I also used a blue copic for the hair to give it a blue-ish undertone. I knew I wanted to do black, red and white as my main colors, but then decided to add some more blue too, to coordinate with the blue-ish/ black-ish hair. I really love how the finished card turned out :-)

The sentiment and the cross stitch border on the bottom are also from this release from the set "Sew Special".  The diecut heart button was done using one of the new button dies

Here is another view.
The little square blocks have been stamped using a really old SU set, but you could also use a small square acrylic block or create your own square stamp using crafting foam. The clock designs were stenciled.
I embellished with some twine and glitter, and did some sewing with my sewing machine. 

If you'd like to hop along with us today simply visit the blogs listed below, and don't forget to leave a comment at each stop. The prize is hidden in one of the blogs, and winner will be chosen from the comments left. 


Happy Hopping and Good Luck!!
