I know... it's been a whole week again. I have been busy crafting though. Just not things I can show you yet. But I do have a sample again!! But I do have a second card to show you with one of the newly released Whimsy Stamps. This stamp is called Bird Swing and again it's by the talented Sylvia Zet from Wee Stamps. Now when you click on that link you will probably notice that I decided not to use the top part of the stamp. Most of you will probably know how to not use parts of a stamp but for those of you who don't, you try not to ink the part you don't want to use and if you do get a bit of ink on that part of the stamp you whipe it away with a babywhipe or a damp tissue. Here is my card:HERE. You might also want to check out the fabulous stuff they have on pre-order, amongst which the new Copic Markers (YES). Anyway, some craft and pink cardstock at the base, pretty flowers and the pearl heart (colored pink with a Copic marker) all bought at Wild Orchid Crafts. The two shades of pink pearls are by Basic Grey. The gorgeous thick ribbon my "lieve vriendinnetje" Diana bought for me on the market in Leiden (dikke kus Diaantje!!, ben er super blij mee). Behind the image is some ribbon I have no idea what it's called but I've had it for ages and I cut it into pieces. A cute little feather behind the flowers, unfortunatelly not longer for sale at the shop where I bought them, a punched edge by Martha Stewart and distressing with Frayed Burlap distress ink and picked fence crackle paint both by Tim Holtz. Here is a close up:
If you have been joining us on our hops this past week and have left comments with me and/or my fellow teammates you might just be a winner. Don't forget to check out the Whimsy Stamps blog today, the winners should be announced there today. We still have a mini hop for you today as well though. No prizes but a lot of eye candy. So be sure to visit my DT buddies:
Well that's it for me for today. Tomorrow I'll have a card up on the Copic Marker Europe blog. Oh.... and almost forgot to tell you, I had a day with the Dutch girls from the Copic Marker Benelux and the Copic Marker Europe teams on Sunday and while there I became a Copic Certified Designer :). So now I can finally color properly :). Hope you like my card!!!
