Clearly Whimsy Stamps April Release - Day 2

Hi everyone and welcome to DAY 2 of the ...

This week we are releasing 9 new clear stamp sets and 8 coordinating die/die sets, and they will be available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store and all good Whimsy Stamps retailers from TOMORROW (23 April).

Yesterday we introduced COFFEE BREAK and HAPPY HELLO, and today we are excited to introduce you to HAPPY TRAVELS and IN THE GARDEN stamp sets and dies! Hop on over to the Whimsy blog to take a peek at the new products.

For my first card today, I used both Travel stamp sets and the Candid Camera die set together with the chevron and circle stamps from the Happy Hello stamp set from yesterday.  This is my favourite card from all the cards I've made for this release, and it really does make me smile! :)  So I would like to enter it into this week's Less is More #168 challenge:

Clearly Whimsy Stamps: Travel 1 - Life is a Journey
Clearly Whimsy Stamps: Travel 2 - Happy Travels
Clearly Whimsy Stamps: Happy Hello
Whimsy Stamps: Candid Camera die set
Memento ink: Tuxedo Black, Nautical Blue, Pistachio, Grey Flannel
Doodlebug Kraft in Color 12x12 paper: Lily White Dot/Grid
Doodlebug Kraft in Color: Assorted Sequins

For my second card I went for a more muted colour palette (although it's still green & blue..this was not deliberate, lol!) and used the bird, soil mound and sentiment stamp from the In the Garden 4x6 stamp set, together with all the In the Garden coordinating fence, grass and watering can dies:

Clearly Whimsy Stamps: In the Garden 4x6 stamp set
Whimsy Stamps: Watering Can die
Whimsy Stamps: Fence & Grass die set
Memento ink: Rich Cocoa, Toffee Crunch, Teal Zeal
Cardstock: Bazzill Kraft, Core'dinations
Paper: MME
Natural twine

I was going to mask the fence, grass and soil stamps to create a stamped scene, but I was too lazy, lol, so I used the dies instead.  For the soil mound, I simply stamped the image in Toffee Crunch onto kraft card and cut it out!  As you can see, I paper pieced the watering can, which was very easy to do - I simply followed the embossed lines of the design when cutting!

PRIZE ALERT ... We have hidden a fabulous prize of a $15 GIFT CERTIFICATE at one of the stops on today’s hop! We will draw the lucky winner from the comments left here and on today’s design team posts (listed below), so be sure to visit everyone and leave a comment to be entered into the draw.
