GDT Whiff of Joy...Summer Stamp Set....Sweet Hello!

Good afternoon folks! Hope you are having a great weekend! look what I have to show you! My first GDT card with the new WOJ Summer Stamp Set...YAY!!!! All the stamps in this set are so totally scrumptious and I just adore the fruit theme but I think this one of Willow is my fav, for now anyways, smile!!!! I just love this new K & Co. paper...what a perfect fit for the new WOJ stamps! It's soooo summery...perfect for a fun, bright card! So, get your sunglasses out ladies and have a peek, lol!!!!

I stamped Willow with Memento Black Tuxedo ink on Prism Simply Smooth paper and coloured her in with my Copics. I cut the open scalloped border on my Silhouette and laced the yummy American Crafts ribbon through it. I am also loving my American Crafts Zing embossing powder! I used it for this sweet sentiment that come in the WOJ set and for the stitching on the border!

Here is the inside of the card! Again, I embossed the sentiment with the Zing White embossing powder and this yummy ice cream cone image comes in the WOJ summer stamp set! I masked it and layered one over the other and coloured it with my Copics.

Not sure if you can see it in this image but the chocolate sprinkles on the ice cream cones are very shimmery! I took a tooth pick and doted Stix2 PVA glue on them and then rubbed the brown foil over them! So there you have it my first GDT I think I've stamped out the nerves now I can just enjoy and have fun with it,smile!
Now for other news...there is a fabulous charitable event happening at PaperCraft Planet "Stampin out Alzheimer's" I am totally in support of this effort!My Grandmother suffered terribly with this horrible disease so, I know how devastating Alzheimer's is to the individual and their family. Please head on over to PaperCraft Planet and check it out and you will see that Whiff of Joy is one of the sponsors of this wonderful endeavour and Jacqui will being hosting a challenge to win one of the new WOJ Summer Stamp Set!
Thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek! Since it's quite chilly out and not that nice really, I'm heading back down to my craftroom!!! I have a lot stamping and cards to make and need to prepare for an upcoming Copic Class!!!
Hope you have a stampin' great day!
