Snail Mail - Whimsy Stamps

 Hello Everyone!

I hope this week is being kind to you.

It's Sue here today to show you one of my favourite recent new releases from Whimsy Stamps which we have in store at our lovely Dies To Die For!

I have chosen to play with a stamp set
and a super new product,
(This is currently out of stock but should be back soon)
I created two inky piece of card by blending Distress Oxides in Mowed Lawn, Dried Marigold and Tumbled Glass over  Strathmore Bristol Vellum Card.

Then I splattered the card with water. 

When everything was dry I die cut one piece of card with the 
Slimline Postage Die
and then splattered white paint over it.  (I do this after die cutting as white paint leaves a slightly raised texture which I rather like and it gets crushed if you add it before die cutting!

I cut the second piece of card slightly larger than the postage die cut piece and layered them together.

I stamped the images from the Snail Mail Clear Stamp Set in black ink, coloured them with Copics and cut them out.  (I'll pop a list of the colours I used at the end of this post for you)

I fixed the images to my card design as shown.

Finally I added a sentiment from the Snail Mail set which I die cut with a die from the 
Bookmark and Tags Die Set

I used the Slimline Envelope Builder Die to make an envelope in Kraft Card.  The envelope lining is a sneak peak of a paper being released soon!
