Whimsy Stamps April Release Finale!!

Hello, hello!!  Aren't the new Whimsy Stamps we have been previewing amazing?? Today is the final preview and all the stamps are now available for purchase in the Whimsy Stamps store.  Today the design team and our April guest designer, Pop's, are sharing projects made with the Travel stamps and coordinating dies, as well as Family Words stamps and the coordinating "wonderful" word die. (You can see all the stamps and dies I used at the end of my post.)  Make sure that you stop at each and every blog because today there is a chance to win the Family Words stamp sets, as well as the "wonderful" word die!!  You should have gotten here from Heather's blog.  If not, head to the Whimsy Stamp blog to start at the beginning and for a full list of participants.

First up is the card I made using images from the Travel 2 stamp set and the matching camera die.  How cute is that little camera???  I absolutely LOVE IT and can't wait to make some more projects with it!  I die cut the little camera from white cardstock and stamped the main body using aqua ink.  I die cut the lense with the little matching die and stamped it with black ink then popped it up on the camera.  A little nest of orange twine was adhered to my square and then the camera adhered on top of that.  The piece was matted with light brown cardstock.  Some washi tape was adhered to the card and the splatters added using yellow ink mixed with water and then the sentiment was stamped.  The entire piece was then mounted on the card base.

My second card was made using the Family Words stamps and the "wonderful" die.  I cut a piece of cardstock to the size I wanted and then die cut the word "wonderful" three times.  I then die cut the word from three different colors of pink cardstock and inlaid them into the white cardstock piece and then stamped the sentiment as shown.  A piece of medium pink polka dot paper was cut, the two pieces were adhered to the card front, some black baker's twine was tied on and a wood veneer heart that I dyed pink was adhered.

Here are all the stamps and dies I used on my projects today:
