Hello again everyone.
I am extremely excited to tell you that this month I have the huge honour of being a Guest Designer for Whimsy Stamps new release!  I am delighted to be part of the blog hop today.
Here are all the details:

Welcome to Day 1 of the ...
Whimsy Stamps July rubber stamp and die release!

Over the next 3 days we will reveal the new July 2014 Whimsy Stamps products. Whimsy is releasing 14 new red rubber stamps/stamp sets and 4 coordinating die/die sets this week, and they will be available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store and selected Whimsy Stamps retailers on Wednesday.

The lucky winner will be drawn from the comments left on today’s design team posts (listed below), so be sure to visit everyone and leave a comment at every stop along the hop to be entered into the draw.

Today we are excited to show you the brand new Elisabeth Bell, Time for Tea Designs and Raindrop Echo Designs stamps and dies being released this month. For a full reveal of these stamps, check out the Whimsy blog!


So,onto my card
I have made a centre step card to showcase an adorable new stamp from Elisabeth Bell - "Little Jack and Bobbin Summer Watermelon". The sentiment is from a fab new set by Raindrop Echo Designs - "On the Grill"
I have used my Whimsy Corner Dies to cut some colourful funky foam.




I have coloured the image with Promarkers and the sky with Distress Inks
The watermelon paper is Carta Bella Summer Lovin' and the green paper is Bo Bunny Double Dot.



So now it's time for you to continue today's hop, your next stop is the wonderful Debbie Eastman.  Don’t forget to leave a comment at every stop along the hop to be entered into the draw to win a $15 gift certificate:
