Whimsy Stamps - July Rubber Stamp and Die - Sneak Peek

Hello and thanks so much for stopping by! 
It is almost time for Whimsy's Rubber Stamp and Die July release. Today we are having a sneak peek blog hop, showing you some of the amazing new designs available tomorrow. (But just in case you really want something, maybe check out the whimsy store later today, you might just find that you can already purchase them today ;-)

Here is what I created using a stamp set from Whimsy's "MOMA's" designs.The stamp set is called "Apple of my Eye" and will be officially available to purchase in the Whimsy Shop tomorrow. That said, I think that unofficially you can already purchase it NOW!


The image has been stamped with memento tuxedo black ink, and then colored using my faber castell polychromos. No, I haven't given up on my copics again. I just made all the cards for this release well in advance, as I sent them to use in Whimsy's booth at CHA, so they were all made before I started getting serious with my copics. I do like though how my pencil coloring turned out. 

After coloring the image, I used my cutterbee scissors to cut it out. The papers are from My Minds Eye. I randomly stamped one of the sentiment stamps from the set onto kraft card stock. Then I stamped it in black on white for the sentiment. The die used on the bottom, behind the sentiment is Whimsy's Notables 5 die. I cut it out using kraft cardstock, also randomly stamping the sentiment onto the paper. Then I inked the edges using distress inks. This iwas also done to the complete card front. 
I added some lace and ribbon, and a simple button with some twine to finish it off.

Here is a closeup.
