Whimsy Stamps release and Wee Stamps review with Sweet Sparkle

NOTE: This is not the card with which I'm participating in the Whimsy sneak peek blog hop, you'll find that card one post down... though this project is also with one of the newly released Whimsy stamps.

Hi everybody,

As promised today I'm back with the second image that's being released by Wee Stamps in June. The digital version of this image has been in the Wee Stamps store since yesterday and the rubber version of this stamp and the rubber version of Wee One which I showed you yesterday are NOW in store at Whimsy Stamps (and also available through Whimsy Stamps' resellers or will be in a few days).

Please let me introduce you to the gorgeous Sweet Sparkle:
Isn't she just gorgeous? This is actually a notepad and not a card... I have to admit that I was so satisfied with how this project was turning out that at the last moment I decided to turn her into something more permanent then a card.

The sentiment is also available at Whimsy Stamps it's part of the Friendship Notables 2 set by Raindrop Echo Designs, it's one of my favorites :). I cut the sentiment out with the matching die and then attached it to the also matching "Simple" chipboard Frame that I painted with a picket fence paint dabber and then also with a little bit of picket fence crackle paint. I used the crackle paint on the papers as well together with frantage, Stickles and Viva Eiskristall.

The amazing butterfly border (Joy! Stencil rand vlinders 6002/0251) is all new. It's actually not in stores yet. It was designed by the talented Jolanda Bergmans for her Noor! Design, available through Joy! Crafts and it will be in stores in just a few days, I believe the releasedate is the 25th of June, you can already pre-order it at a lot of stores in The Netherlands and I'm sure it'll be available in other countries as well. When I saw that she was going to release this gorgeous border die about a month ago I HAD to combine it with Sweet Sparkle. I actually begged Jolanda if I could have a few die cuts a little sooner and she was a sweetheart and gave them to me. But I have already pre-ordered both this die and a lot of other gorgeous dies that are being released soon by Noor! Her new collection is a MUST HAVE. Bedankt Jolanda!!!

The pretty papers that I used are by Pion Design I've had them for a while and never allowed myself to use them before, they are just so pretty. I have added stitches but not over the pretty corners of the papers. The antique golden pearls that match the antique golden crown pin from Wild Orchid Crafts perfectly are from Flourish with a Bling. The dies that I used to cut and stack Sweet Sparkle with are Spellbinders and the tag is from Magnolia. The ribbon and charm are from stash.

The gorgeous products that I used from Wild Orchid Crafts are:

A close up of gorgeous Sweet Sparkle, as always colored with Copic Markers and completely 3D paper pieced. The lantern was a challenge but I love how it turned out :). The Copic Markers used are:

And the little pieces that were used to create Sweet Sparkle.
