Hey lovelies, I'm back again with Day 3 of the Digital Release at Whimsy Stamps. We Digital Design Divas have been hard at work with our inspiration for this awesome new release. The papers are beautiful, we have some awesome sentiment sets and the images are fabulous. So be sure to head over to Whimsy Stamps for a look at the full new release.
I totally fell in love with the beautiful papers from our new release. So both my new release creations have focused on these gorgeous papers. I've used the same digital technique of increasing the brightness on the sentiment until it turns white. Don't know how I got this to work, I was just playing with settings on my computer in the hopes I could work out how to turn the sentiment white and hey presto it did! Hehe, a happy accident, as I really didn't have a handle on the process. But I loved the way it worked out for my first creation (see previous post) and wanted to do it again, but this time for a birthday card.
The gorgeous sentiment is from a lovely set of sentiments created by designer Bev Rochester for Whimsy Stamps. They're just brilliant. You can find this one in the 'Birthday Wishes Sentiments'. I love the sweet little heart flourishes in the design.
I kept the design very simple, another CAS creation, to allow the paper to really feature and not be covered with embellishments. This paper is way too pretty to cover! Don't you just love that sweet hummingbird?! I popped up the paper on foam for dimension, distressed the edges with dark green Memento Ink and added sequins to finish the design. Did you know Whimsy Stamps sell sequins? They have a really gorgeous selection, which you can find under 'Bling' in the store. The base card is a lovely deep green, which really tones so beautifully with the blue greens in the paper. You can find this pretty paper as part of the 'Floral Grass' digital paper set in the new releases.
Click through to the store on the link above to check out the full digital release. There are just so many gorgeous new items in store. Check out the full new release, which includes the Rubber Stamps, Clear Stamps, Stencils and Dies via this link. These two new release posts are instead of my usual Whimsy Wednesday post this week, but I'll be back next Wednesday with my usual inspiration post, so pop back for that. Enjoy browsing through the new releases, I know I've got several on my 'Wish List' already! Hugs and happy crafting xoxo
