Willow with Shopping Bags - Sneak Peek 3

Hello everyone, this is my third sneak peek of these gorgeous new Whiff of Joy stamps from the City Girls collection. I just love this shopping Willow stamp, she is a girl after my own heart! I have used the sketch from the current Stampin' for the Weekend Challenge and I am also entering it for ABC....N which has a theme of new - my new things are the stamp and DPs.

I have made a card and matching note pad set. I think they would be great as a little gift - a girl needs somewhere to write down things that she wants to buy!!!!!

For my card I have used the full size Willow with Shopping bags from Whiff of Joy - the City Girls collection is available to order from the 4th February. I have coloured her with copics and cut and layerd her with oval nesties. The DP is from Basic Grey, I just loved the retro look of these papers. The dark brown one is a really lush rich colour and I embossed it wth my d'vine swirl folder to pep it up a little but unfortunately you can't really see this in the picture. The ribbon, brad and pearls are from my stash and the cute charm is available from Whiff of Joy. I sewed around all the elements and I used a TH ticket as my sentiment.

I altered a little note pad that I picked up from the supermarket and the stamp I used for this is a mini one - these aren't available to buy but you get them free with orders over 50 euros and they are perfect for small projects. The DPs etc are the same as my card and I didn't add too many embellishments to the note pad as I didn't want to swamp it and I wanted it to be fairly hard wearing to withstand a handbag. The sentiment is computer generated and I cut the letters into small tiles so I could add them in a curve.

Finally, my usual close up.
