Magazine Commission: Whimsy Stamps Valerie's Gift

Hi everyone!  Although we're fast approaching Summer, I have a winter-themed birthday card and matching tag to share with you today.

This is the very first commission I did for the UK cardmaking magazine 'Cardmaking & Papercraft' back in 2011. Whenever I make something for the magazine, they own all rights from the moment they receive the project right up until 6 months following publication, which means I can't share photos here on my blog (or anywhere else, for that matter!) for quite a while.  However, this commission was published in issue 97 which was available to buy on 29 September 2011, and so I can now share it here on my blog! :)

I was asked to make a winter-themed birthday card and matching tag for the Subscriber's Supplement of Issue 97.  I used...

Whimsy Stamps Valerie's Gift rubber stamp
(UK/Europe: available HERE from Quixotic Paperie at 20% off!)

Whimsy Stamps Party Mini Letter Seals rubber stamp set
(UK/Europe: also available HERE from Quixotic Paperie at 20% off!)

Quixotic Paperie currently has all Whimsy Stamps on sale at 20% off!!  I've just checked and this sale INCLUDES the very popular Sylvia Zet Wee Stamps and Elisabeth Bell stamps!  So hop on over to the store and grab yourself a bargain!!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a fab day! I shall be back tomorrow with another Sparkle Creations May Release Preview!
