Samurai Henry

Happy Sunday all! Hope Spring has arrived in your corner of the world. We had some beautiful days, but it cooled down a bit for the weekend. Just hope Spring will remember to come back! =) Here is a card that I made using one of the new Whiff of Joy digital stamps to share with you today.


This is Samurai Henry. He is pretty handsome, huh? =) He also come in pre-colored version to save you time! How cool is that?


After printing the image on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock, it was then cut and embossed using a Labels Two die and colored with Copic Markers. The sentiment penal is cut and embossed using the smallest die from the Petite Ovals Small die set.


I also cut the flourishes using the Elegant Flourishes die and wrapped them around the image for a little more interest. The patterned paper is from the Minuet collection by Memory Box and the sentiment is from this set by Hero Arts.

You can find all the new digital stamps here and the pre-colored versions here. There are also a few fun new dies and a sentiment set being released this month, so don't forget to check them out!

One more thing. Lisa, the owner of The Craft's Meow is having a 20% off sale of your entire order from now through April 5th. The store has a few exclusive stamps and card kits and they are fabulous! Read the announcement and discount code here.

That's all for now. Have a fabulous day, my friends! =)
