Release Day at Wee Stamps and Whimsy Stamps with sample

Hello everybody!

Today it's that day of the month again, both Wee Stamps and Whimsy Stamps are releasing their new lines. Wee Stamps of course both as digital images and as rubber stamps through Whimsy Stamps. This month I have decided to only join in the releases with samples of the new Wee Stamps images/stamps so I won't be joining the Whimsy mini hops but you might want to do the hops because as always there are prices hidden along the way. First let me give you the details about the Whimsy release:

Today, Whimsy Stamps is releasing 27 fantastic new Rubber Stamps & Stamp Sets, 6 wonderful new Whimsy Shapeology Dies, 2 fabulous new Shape EZ by TLC templates, 2 beautiful Whimsy Designer Paper 6x6 packs, and 2 *NEW* gorgeous sets of Whimsy Prints. These new goodies are available to buy right now from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favourites. We are thrilled to announce that Monika Martinson has joined our talented group of stamp illustrators! Monika draws the most beautiful floral images and we are releasing 3 gorgeous rubber stamp sets illustrated by Monika for Whimsy Stamps this month.  Welcome to the Whimsy Stamps family, Monika!

I'll give you the details about the Whimsy mini hops on the bottom of this post because now I really want to show you my card with the absolutely adorable Love you Slow Much by Sylvia Zet (available as a digital image HERE and as a rubber stamp HERE):
You may recognize Sylvia's Peggy. I told Sylvia that somehow this image, probably the hair, reminded me of a sort of Geisha and she asked me if I was going to color her hair black. That made me realize I had never done black hair before! And this hair isn't really black either, I have been google-ing images of black hair and decided I wanted brown-black hair like Beyonce has on some pictures so that's what I was aming for. The darkest parts are the 100-Copic Marker (=black) but then I went to W9, W7, E47, E44. The sentiment is from the Raindrop Echo Thank you Tabs 1 set by Whimsy Stamps and it was cut with the matching die. The designpaper is an old line from Basic Grey, Plumeria. I wanted to use a sheet of that line with little flowers because that matched the Geisha theme but as you can see, that paper didn't make it to the card :). I recently discovered a (for me) new store, Flourish with a Bling and they have this huge selection of pearls and swirls. I bought this gorgeous soft sparkling Jasmine Puffy Flourish in Lilac and decided to use that cut in pieces. The purple pearls are also from this company. The flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts and I used purple and platinum Stickles around the papers.
 A close up of the image, as always colored with Copic Markers and completely 3D paper pieced.
And the little pieces that created the image. You may notice that the dress has a little different color in the little pieces. When pieced together I didn't like the white so I added some orange, that took some very careful coloring LOL.

Our fabulous Guest Designers at Wee Stamps have more gorgeous cards to show you. Not only with Love you Slow Much but also with a new image called Birthday Baby Boy. I will show you a card with the Birthday Baby Boy tomorrow but be sure to check out the gorgeousness on the Wee blog today HERE.

And for even more inspiration there is of course the Whimsy mini hops starting today:
