Whimsy August Release Day 2!!!

Hi there Blogger friends!!

On August 10th, Whimsy Stamps released our August Rubber Designs and new dies. From then until August 16th, the Whimsy Stamps DT are showcasing these 15 fabulous new stamps and 3 new Shapeology dies in the lead up to our new release blog hop on August 17th.

Today, I have a card to share using the newly released Wedding Garter image by Kenny K, along with the gorgeous tail of our newly released Elegant Butterflies die cuts designed by Raindrop Echo Designs!

This card was made for my dear husband, it was our 3rd wedding anniversary this past Sunday, so when I saw this image, and what with it looking JUST LIKE ME (hahahahahahahaha, yeah right!! I wish!!) I knew I could make something for the occasion. I coloured in distress inks, the papers are K and Company and the flowers, I tried not to go OTT with them, as this is for a MAN, so I settled on a blue colour palette and very little flowers. I used the end of our Butterfly Flourish die as foliage. I wanted to include the butterfly, of course!! But again, tried to go with a masculine elegance, if there is such a thing, so the die pulled double duty as a flourish!!

So that's all for now folks,
with any luck, I will get to do some painting for
the next sneak peak today!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Hugs, stephanne

Well, this card is simply SMASHING! And I mean that in the most perfect stunningly way possible!!! Your colouring is GORGEOUS as always .. making this hottie look even hotter! haha! And hmmm .. I dunno .. even if it's a male card .. i still SLATHER my cards with flowers! hahahaha! I figure as long as it's not PINK flowers it's okay right? So I definitely love the sensitive touch you've added to this beauty!
