Clearly Whimsy Stamps June Release Hop

Hello friends!!  Clearly Whimsy Stamps in releasing some fun new stamps and dies on Saturday, June 28th and today the design team is showcasing several of the new sets:  Happy Everything and matching dies and Distressed Backgrounds and Ink Splats.   We are joined by guest designers Jen Carter and Becky Carafa.  You should have gotten here from Heather's blog, but if you didn't then please head over to the Whimsy Stamps blog for the complete hop list.  There is a prize up for grabs, $15.00 gift certificate, so you will want to make sure that you stop at each blog on the hop.

My card is uses the new Happy Everything stamp set and the matching "happy" word die.  My layout is based on the current AAA Card challenge (CASEing dt member Vicki).  I went with the overall layout of her card and some of the colors, but changed things up just a bit by applying three rows of washi tape (being careful to line everything up) to my cardstock piece instead of inking like Vicki.  The "happy" was die cut and adhered to the washi tape.  The balloons were stamped, trimmed out and adhered.  I hand drew in the string and then stamped the "birthday sentiment underneath.    Here is the stamp and die that I used today:


 
Your next stop on the hop is Simonne.  Don't forget to comment for a chance to win the $15.00 prize!  Thanks for stopping by....
 
 
Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white & black; Stamps & Dies:  Clearly Whimsy Stamps; Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black; Washi tape:  Impress Rubber Stamps
