Welcome to Sneak Peek Day 4 of the Whimsy Stamps February Rubber Release!
Today we're showing sneaks of new the Sentiments and Dies by Raindrop Echo Designs
For a full list of all of today's sneak peekers, please visit the Whimsy Stamps Inspiration Blog

Today I'm sneak peeking the upcoming Balloon Set Dies and Birthday Postage Stamps which I've designed.  I mentioned on Day 2 that the dies can cut felt and after I found that out, I went FELT CRAZY!  You can see the aftermath below, lol.  I cut several shapes from different colored felts, but most of the felt was ivory and I just did a bit of sponging using the Ranger Inkssential Blending Tool and my stamp pads to give them a bit of color. It was super easy to and quick to make these birthday cards!  I even actually have one for a guy ready now.  Oh, I also went baker's twine crazy and you will see the aftermath for THAT on release day :)

The simple circle postmark sentiments that you see on two of the cards are from the Birthday Postage Stamps set, which will also be releasing on Feb. 9th.  The main feature of the upcoming Postage Stamp set and Birthday Postage Stamps set are actually four postage stamps, but each set also comes with four circle postmarks each to match.

Hope you come back tomorrow to join me for Sneak Peek Day 5: Prerelease Sneaks - our choice of artist!  Hint: I'll be sharing another image of Crissy's using a new-to-me coloring technique!
