New Whiff of Joy Summer Stamp Kit ---- Oh, Wow!!

Yesterday the mail brought me something very special!! I received the Whiff of Joy Summer Stamp Kit!! Woo Hoo!! I put in my pre-order way back on the first day it was available, even though, like the Spring Stamp Kit, I didn't know what the stamps looked like. And, like the Spring Kit, I was far from disappointed --- these images are beautiful!!! The best ever! No kidding.

Last night I had all the stamps trimmed and mounted, stamped several images of each, and colored 4 of the Willow images. Oh, they are so summery and with endless possibilities.

Tonight I made 2 cards and just couldn't wait to show them to you!

This one of Willow looks so thoughtful and serene. Her outfit is trimmed in apples and strawberries. Lusciousness!
Here is a closeup of her. You can almost feel the light breeze blowing her dress.
I kept the inside simple with room for a personal message.
The image is colored with copics and layered on Kraft paper and DP from K & Company Margo cut with Nesties Labels. The background is also from the K & Company Margo stack. The flowers are from Fabric Fancies. I forgot to take a photo of the Copics, so I will list them: the skin is E00 and E11; Hair - I forgot; in her outfit the greens are YG03 and Yg25, reds are R27 and R39, dress E41 and E53; the apron was left white with W1 for dimension.
The second card is very bright and summery! Willow has on the cutest summer outfit!
The closeup shows her happy face and details of apples and oranges in her outfit.
Inside I repeated the heart shapes with a fun summer sentiment "A single sunbeam is enough to drive away many shadows."
This image is also colored with Copics and layered on Hearts cut with Nesties. The embellies are K & I Memories Juicy Summer collection, perfect for these images. The DP is K & Company Lemon Drops stack. The buttons are from Oriental Trading Company. Again, I forgot to take a photo of the Copics, so here are the details: Skin: E00 and E11; hair: E37 and YR24; outfit is B24, R27, YG03, Y08, YR04
I will show more of these fun summer kids in the coming days. In the meantime, if you want to see more of the images, visit the Whiff of Joy Gallery where the Design Team has posted some gorgeous cards with the new images.
Thanks for stopping by! Please leave your comments --- I'd love to have your feedback!

These are FAB-U-LOUS Barb! Your colouring is awesome! These new WOJ cuties are starting to appear all over blogland, but I can genuinely say yours are the best I've seen! I didn't order the kit, and wasn't too bothered about ordering any of the singles....until now! Seriously Barb, I know I'm gushing, but your cards are FAB! Hugs, Sem x
