From Paris With Love...

Hello and welcome to Day 6 of Whimsy Stamps June Rubber & Die Release Showcase!

Last Wednesday (20 June) Whimsy Stamps released this month's new rubber designs, new Shapeology dies and new Shape EZ by TLC. From then until 26 June the Whimsy Stamps DT and Special Guests are showcasing these fabulous new goodies with a daily mini blog hop and I am part of today’s hop!

For today's card I decided to make a vintage-style French-themed creation!  I stamped the main image from the *new* Parisian Romance stamp set in brown ink onto a piece of Prima paper.  (I wanted to used Walnut Stain ink, but had to settle for an old SU ink pad instead as my Distress ink pads are away being used as photo props at the moment!).  I stamped one of the sentiments from the *new*  Definitions Notables 4 stamp set and matted it onto a gorgeous *new* Dainty Notables 4 die cut from kraft card.  And how could I not use the *new* Eiffel Tower die - it is SO gorgeous and intricate!  I also used my well-used Vines die set from an older release, snipping off a few swirls to fit my design (love how it's so easy to do this with this die set!).


Each mini blog hop has a new release prize hidden somewhere along the way and you have 24hrs to enter each prize draw.
