Whimsy's Floraline by Elisabeth Bell

The card I made for Sunday's mini-blog is a stamp by Elisabeth Bell named Floraline.  My card is 6x6.  This is the third of the three cards that I made as the Whimsy Guest Designer for January.  As you know, last Wednesday Whimsy released new rubber stamps, dies, paper packs, templates and card toppers.  I hope you’ve all looked at the new items and have made your shopping list…I know I did! 

I colored Floraline with Copics and used Spellbinders dies around her.  I used a Whimsy ticket stamp set and matching die, along with dies from Magnolia and Marianne Dies. I also used butterfly punches from Martha Stewart. The flowers came from Wild Orchid and the pearls are from Queen & Co.  The lace is from my stash and the paper is from a local scrapbook store.  I used stickles on every flower petal and on Floraline’s lace, flowers and hairbow.


and one more view of the bouquet

The DT and Special Guests are continuing to showcase these fabulous goodies with a daily mini-blog.  Each mini blog hop has a new release prize hidden somewhere along the way and you have 24hrs to enter each prize draw. To be entered into the mini blog hop prize draw each day, be sure to leave a comment on ALL of the DT’s posts every day. Winners will be announced on the Whimsy Blog on January 30.

It's been an honor to be the January Guest Designer for Whimsy this month and thank you all for the encouraging and kind comments you've left on my blog. A very special thank you to Denise and Simmone for this opportunity and guidance!

                                                                              Hugs, Gail
