Whimsy New Release Showcase Day # 5



Good Morning Everyone, Happy Monday!!! I hope everyone had a WONDERFUL weekend!!! Today is Whimsy Stamps New Release Showcase Day #5 and I wanted to share a creation with you that I made using one of Ann's Fabulous Sentiment Sets, Sympathy Notables 3. I always find it very difficult to make a sympathy cards but with this set I had no problems :) Hope you enjoy my creation!!!



I wanted to try something different with this set :) As you can see, I decided to make a 3D Flower using one of the sentiments in the AWESOME NEW Set Sympathy Notables... I stamped the sentiment several times, cut them out, and arranged the first layer, and used pop dots for the second layer...Then I added a button to the center to complete my flower... Flowers always seem to be very appropriate for sympathy cards....

To see a full list of designers showcasing today, stop by and visit the Whimsy Inspirations Blog so you can pop over and see their creations :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope everyone has a WONDERFUL Monday!!!
