Happy Wishes

This month, Whimsy are releasing the following new stamps and dies:
4 new stamps from Crissy Armstrong
3 new stamps from Lee Holland
2 new stamps from Wee Stamps
2 new stamps from Krista Heij-Barber
3 new stamps from Kirsten Winkelbauer
and finally - 6 new clear stamps and 2 new dies and 1 stencil
All the new products are available to purchase from the Whimsy Stamps shop 

After a lot of deliberation (because amazing release images!) I went with this adorable Mouse with Rose and and and …. did you SEE that sentiment?!?!  It’s the Happy Sayings Die Set and accompanying Happy Sayings stamp set.  Eeek, I am so in love with it.  The set comprises of two sentiment dies, one round and one square and there’s a matching set of stamps that go with it, and the stamps cover pretty much every occasion you would need a sentiment for.  The dies cut beautifully and I didn’t even need to use waxed paper either.  I used my mini Misti to align the sentiment but also stamped without using the Misti and got a perfect stamped impression every time.  I’m SO gonna wear this die and stamp set out!

I coloured this little cutie up with copic markers and a few pencils:
Mouse: C3, 1, 0, 00; R20, 00, 0000 and black pencil
Rose: G46, 43, 40 and olive green pencil; R85, 83, 81, RV0000 and mahoany red pencil


I matted the sentiment die cut onto pale pink card to give it a bit of a pop.  I {Heart} this set so hard.


I used Maja Design Vintage Romance papers, so pretty.
