For today's showcase, I've used all of Crissy's new ADORABLE new images!  I love masking and since I have limited stamping time these days, what better way to ink up all the stamps :)  The sentiment is from the new Fanciful Birthday Notables 1 set, which I thought went perfectly with this group of critters.  The sentiment says "Count your life by smiles, not tears.  Count your age by friends, not years."  The sentiment was cut out using the Notables 1 die and layered on top of the Elegant Notables 1 die.

I did some watercoloring for the first time in a long time. Boy am I rusty and I wasn't great to begin with, haha.  The card is pretty simple since the image panel took up most of the space.  Hope this inspires you to grab up some of the new stamps and have some fun with them!

Stamps: Whimsy Stamps Bud, Gus The Bunny, Little Playmates, Fanciful Birthday Notables 1; Coloring medium/ink: Twinkling H20s on Arches Hot Press watercolor paper stamped with StazOn; Papers: Simple Stories Baby Steps; Embellishments: May Arts twill ribbon; Tools: Whimsy Stamps Elegant Notables 1 die, Notables 1 die, Spellbinders die, Tim Holtz distressing tool


Don't forget to visit today's DT and leave a comment on their blog posts to be entered into the draw to win a new release stamp, then pop back to the Whimsy blog tomorrow for the next list of showcase posts!


Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy our new release!  I will be posting another card tomorrow so see you soon :)
