Whimsical Designs Stamp Release Blog Hop!

Hello everyone and welcome to the Whimsical Designs Stamp Release Blog Hop! If you came here from Stephanie then you are in the right place! If you just happened to come visit, then you will want to start at the begining at Whimsical Designs so you won't miss anything. Here is my project:

First off I have to tell you that these pictures do NOT do this card justice. No matter how hard I tried I could not get the pictures to show it's true beauty! :(   I cut the snowflakes from Winter Lace. The big one and it's layer was cut at 4 inches and the smaller one was cut at 1.35 inches. I pop dotted the big layer to the mat and layered the small snowflake on top and added a snowflake brad to the center. I embossed the background with the Cuttlebug Snowflakes folder and inked around the edges. The sentiment is stamped from Whimsical Designs Snow Much Fun set....isn't that a gorgeous sentiment? I also inked around the edges of the mat and pop dotted that to the card. I hope you liked my card and thanks for hopping with us today!
I'm sure you want to see the new stamps, so here they are!!! All of these wonderful sets are now for sale in the Whimsical Designs Shop!

These are such WONDERFUL stamps! They have such a great variety of sentiments and the fonts are ADORABLE! I can't tell you how impressed I am with them.
