For my Valentine!

Hello crafty friends! I am back here on my blog after a short brake. I hope that you all had a wonderful holiday season and a good start into the new year!
Isn't it crazy that we are half into January already? A new year, also means a new Whimsy release schedule. We are now having a release once a month each month on the 15th. Our very popular Quick Card Fronts will be released on the 1st of each month.

So and without further ado here is my first card inspiration for you using several of the new released products. All new products used for my card are available in the store HERE!

I used an A2 sized top-folded white card base for my new release creation. The BG paper is a sheet of the NEW 6x6 Chocolate Caramel Coffee paper pack. I then used a die from a previous release, called Loopidoos 2, to create another layer before adding my focal point images. 
The cupcake is cut out using the NEW Cupcake die set. The super cute Donkey is from Crissy's new clear stamp set NEW Donkey Love
I colored the image using Derwent Chroma Flow pencils (on Strathmore Mixed Media paper). 
The sentiment which is included with the clear stamp set was stamped onto white heavy cardstock and cut out using the NEW Quick Stacks 1 die set. I cut the sentiment strips apart after die cutting and layered them on top of each other for a 3D look. Instead of cutting you can also fan fold them. They already have score lines after die cutting. Using a bone folder helps to get crisp edges when folding. I personally prefer the cut and layer technique. 
There are also some small heart stamps included in the donkey Love set. I used these to add texture on my background panel and sentiment strip. A few matching pink confetti sequins and crystals from This Calls for Confetti finish off my card.

Here is a link list for all Whimsy Stamps products used on my card:


Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful rest of your week!
