Welcome to the debut release of Whimsy Stamps newest artist/illustrator Nina-Marie Trapani! Nina-Marie has created 4 new clear stamp sets and 2 new Shapeology crafting dies to complement the stamp sets. Each day this week our design team and special guests will be sharing the new products and then on Friday, March 11th customers will be able to purchase them from the Whimsy Stamps Shop.
I absolutely adore the sweet images form the new Whimsy Stamps Hedgehugs Stamp Set. I masked some of the images from the Hedgehugs Stamp Set to create this sweet scene before coloring in the whole panel in with Copic Markers.
I die cut a rectangle from smooth white cardstock using a Hand Stitched Rectangle Die. Then I masked and stamped the images from the Hedgehugs Stamp Set on the rectangle using Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink. I cut the greeting apart and stamped it vertically as shown. I colored in the images and background with Copic Markers:
I added detail to the eyes on the critters with a black glaze pen and highlights to the eyes with a opaque white pen. A bit of glitter using the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen adds a fun touch to the bird and ladybug.
I die cut a larger rectangle from Black Cardstock using the A2 size Hand Stitched Rectangle Die and matted the colored panel on the black one. I adhered the whole thing to a side fold card base and finished the design with a scattering of Pretty Pink Posh Mini Gold Heart Confetti.
