Clearly Whimsy Stamps April Release - day 2

Hello, hello!!  Did you enjoy yesterday's peeks of the some of the new Whimsy Stamps that will be released on Wednesday?  I hope so because the design team and our April guest designer, Pop's, have more sneeks to share with you!!  Today we are showcasing Happy Travels stamps and coordinating dies, as well as In the Garden stamps and coordinating dies.  You should have gotten here from Simmone's blog.  Once, again, we are giving away a $15.00 gift certificate so make sure you stop at all the blogs on the hop.  Commenting is open until noon (EST) on Sunday, April 27th.

Today I'm giving you a peek of the simply gorgeous In the Garden stamps and dies.  My card uses stamps from the In the Garden 4x6 set, as well as the In the Garden Additions set and the sweet little picket fence die.  I started by stamping the grass from In the Garden across the bottom of my card using bright green ink.  I then added the flower stems and leaves.  The cluster of sunflowers was created by stamping and masking.  The little bee was stamped and colored with a yellow marker and then silver Wink of Stella ink was added to the wings.  The picket fence was die cut from kraft cardstock twice and then adhered to the card with foam dimensionals and the sentiment added.  A strip of patterned paper (October Afternoon Witch Hazel line) was adhered on one side and then the stamped panel.  Finished things off with a bit of dark brown twine.

Thanks for stopping by... your next stop is Deb's blog!  And don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win that $15.00 gift certificate!!  See you tomorrow for our release day hop and the reveal of our last set of products!!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI kraft and white; PP:  October Afternoon; Stamps & Dies:  Whimsy Stamps; Ink:  Stampin Up! and Memento; Wink of Stella silver brush tip maker; May Arts twine

Such a lovely card (I have a 'thing' for plaids and this paper is really pretty!). The layout is terrific - I really like how you stamped the sunflowers behind that fence die cut.
