I have a special post today. The Whimsy stamp shop has gotten together with some awesome designers to create a group of stamps in which all proceeds go to The American Red Cross relief fund for those affected by the devastating events in Japan. Here is this adorable release - ONLY $9 and your receive each image from artists such as Kenny K, Meljen's Designs, Raindrop Echo Designs and Chrissy Armstrong.
I used the ever so adorable Kimono Bear from Meljen's Designs for my card today! All of Meljen's stamps can be purchased HERE at Whimsy Stamps. I HAD so much fun coloring this little bear with my Copics.
I used a number of Basic Grey papers from the Urban Couture stack. I used a chocolate brown to layer everything on.
I used a square nestability turned to a diamond shape for the bear. I also cut felt using my nestabilites and sewed a little button in the middle and added some pearls. The sentiment was from a small set of clear polymer stamps. I inked the edges in Tim Holtz Antique Linen.Whimsy Stamps and purchase this adorable set and donate to relief efforts in Japan. There is so much to do there and I often hear people say I wish I could help. Here is a perfect opportunity - I'm headed there now to purchase my set!
