Clearly Whimsy Stamps April Release

Hello, hello everyone!!  Today is an exciting day!!  Whimsy Stamps has a new release and today is day one of peeks of the fabulous 9 (yes 9!!) new stamp sets and 8 (yes 8!!) new coordinating dies and die sets that will be available for purchase from the Whimsy Stamps store and Whimsy Stamps retailers on Wednesday, April 23rd!!  Today the design team, as well as our April guest designer Pop's, are sharing peeks of the following new stamps and dies:  Coffee Break and Happy Hello!  If you got here from Heather's blog, then you are on the right track.  Make sure you leave a comment on each blog (the full list found here at the Whimsy Stamps blog) because there is a $15.00 gift certificate hidden on one blog that you could win!!  YAY!!   Commenting closes on Sunday, April 27th at noon EST.  Now that I have the details out of the way... on to my card.

My card uses the super adorable new Coffee Break set and coordinating Coffee Break dies.  I absolutely love that cute little "to go" coffee cup!  As you can see this set is loaded with tons of fun images and super clever sentiments. I kept things very clean and simple with this card.  I embossed a rectangle on to my cardstock and then stamped the little steam image using yellow ink. The coffee cup was die cut from patterned paper (Webster's Pages Family Traditions line) and rustic white cardstock.  The center portion of the white die cut was stamped with the sentiment (how fun is that sentiment???) and then adhered to the card.  The lid was adhered with foam dimensional.  Before adhering the cup inside the emboss rectangle I tied on some yellow baker's twine.  The piece was matted with additional patterned paper and adhered to the card base. 

Thanks for stopping by... Jen is your next stop on the hop and don't forget to comment for a chance to win.  See you tomorrow for day 2 of our release sneak peeks!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI Rustic White; PP:  Webster's Pages; Stamps & Dies:  Clearly Whimsy Stamps; Baker's Twine:  The Twinery; Ink:  Memento
