Whimsy Sneak Peeks Day 5

Hello friends! Welcome to Whimsy Sneak Peeks Day 5! Just one more day to go until our big release party for 16 (!) new Whimsy stamps, woohoo!!! Can't wait until tomorrow to celebrate with you all these fab images! So I thought I go ahead and participate in the last sneak peek day as well

For my sneak peek today I chose another of the super cute soon-to-be-released Meljens Designs images, the 'Balloon Mouse'. This is such a fun image and a perfect go together with the brand new soon-to-be-available balloon dies! And this is what I came up with:

A more clean and simple card with bright designer papers (Basic Grey). The 'Balloon Mouse' was colored using my Copics. To embellish I only added some Platinum and Star Dust Stickles, a ribbon and some gems.

The balloons were cut out using the new 'Balloon Dies'. First I stamped balloon shapes and the sentiment, also from a soon-to-be-released 'Balloon Styles' set, onto some DP. Then I cut them out with the balloon dies and added them to the card using 3D foam pads. I also adhered some strings to the balloons.

I hope you like my little project today and make sure to stop by at the Whimsy Inspirational blog for a complete list of designers participating in today's sneak peeks!

Please come back tomorrow for our release party and blog hop! Starting at 12, noon EST. There will be lots of chances for you to win some of these awesome new goodies and even more eye-candy from the DT showcasing them!!! And not to forget all the fun we'll be having hopping around and celebrating together
