May 2016 Rubber Release News and Inspiration - Day 2

Hello! It's day two for the Whimsy Stamps May release. So many great new images!!

Today I want to share a card I made using the new one from Art by Mi Ran 'Bella the Bride'.

I kept it simple with this card, I wanted the image to really stand out.  I colored her with my Copics. I used one of my rectangular metal dies to trace a line around the card. The sentiment is something from my stash. I realized I don't have that many wedding Most of my friends and family are already married and my children are to young.  

I added some Wink of Stella to the veil and Stickles to the crown.

Today I want to share a card I made using the new stamp set from Krista Heij-Barber 'Ice Cream Truck'. OMGoodness this set is sooo darn adorable.

Mason jar gift tags.... Baked with Love!!

Hello. Happy Mother's Day!! Hope you are enjoying your day!

Today I want to share some tags I made with the Whimsy Stamps set by Krista Heij-Barber 'Baked with Love'.  I love this set it is so versatile. 

I wanted to make some tags to put on a mason jar for some gifts.  

I colored them with Copic Markers. I used the Clearly Whimsy 'Everyday Mini Sentiments'

This would be great to put the dry ingredients for a chocolate chip recipe. 

This would be great for some dry ingredients for a soup recipe or granola. 

I used a mason jar stamp from my stash and fussy cut it out. 

Hope you like my inspiration this week.
