Beate Johns {Special Guest}
Deb Routledge {Special Guest}
Dena Concienne {Special Guest}


For today's mini hop, I've created a card using Crissy's new image called Spring Zebra.  Crissy's animal images are always so adorable and this stamp is no exception :)  I used a sentiment from the Spring Letter Seals set and cut it out using the new Tab 1 die.  Although there's a matching sentiment set (Thank You Tabs 1) for the Tab 1 die, as you can see, you can use the tab die with a variety of sentiments that you may have available! This card uses the current sketch at the CLP Challenge Blog.

Stamps: Whimsy Stamps Spring Zebra and Spring Letter Seals; Coloring medium: Copics on Make it Colour blending card; Papers: BasicGrey Picadilly; Embelishments: May Arts ribbons, doilies, pearls, K&Company flower sticker; Tools: Whimsy Stamps  Tab 1 die , Spellbinders dies



Well, that's it for me today!  Remember that the entire new release is available to buy right now from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favorites.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check the Whimsy Inspirations blog tomorrow for more new release creations!
