Whimsy Stamps Sneak Peek Day 4 - Meljen's Designs

Happy Monday everyone!

Whimsy Stamps next rubber and die release is only a few days away - yippee!!  On 18 May we will be releasing a mega stash of wonderful *NEW* rubber stamps plus a couple of darling new dies. 

In the lead up to release day on Wednesday, the Whimsy DT are posting sneak peeks of some of the fabby new stamps and dies, and today we are sharing sneak peeks of some of the new Meljen's Designs rubber stamp collection.

For my card I used Gruffy Little Gnome.  I just adore his gruff (but totally adorable) nature! Hee hee!  I thought this would make a perfect "I'm sorry" type of card!  I have added a full list of the supplies I used to make this card at the bottom of this post.

I followed Jen's fabulous Deconstructed Sketch #1 for my card, and I would also like to enter it into the following challenges:

- Deconstructed Sketch #1
- Basic Grey #44 Mix & Match
- Totally Gorjuss #80  Not square
- My Mum's Craft Shop #5 Dies
- Fabulous Friday Challenge Ribbon or Twine (I've used both!)
- Crafty Sentiments Buttons
- Craft Us Crazy #8 Fave embellie and/or something new (brand new stamp!)
- Papertake Weekly Punch
- Tuesday Throwdown #48 Die Cuts
- Use it Tuesday #7 Bling

Be sure to stop by my Whimsy DT sistahs' blogs for more peeks of the soon-to-be-released Meljen's Designs rubber stamps:

Hope you have a great Monday!
