Whimsy Holiday Release - Blog Hop

Hi All,
Welcome to our  
Whimsy Stamps Holiday Rubber Stamp Release 
blog hop!

We are very excited to be releasing and showcasing the 9 brand new rubber stamps and sets. We have 2 adorable single image stamps, one new beautiful carousel horse set, and an elegant vintage set each designed by Crissy Armstrong. And Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs has created 2 fabulous background text stamps, a cute holiday with list, an all purpose holiday sentiment, and more awesome Ticket Sentiments, all perfect for the holiday season! All of these stamps are available to purchase in the Whimsy Stamps shop now.

Today our Design Team and some very special guests have joined together to host a Holiday Blog Hop. The blog hop began at Noon EST and will run until Noon EST on Thursday, Oct. 7th. If you are just joining me now, you will want to go on over to BEV'S blog for the start of the hop. There are many chances to win prizes along the way too!

If you've been hopping along and are joining me from LORI'S blog, guess what? You have reached the end of the hop!! We thank you so much for joining us today and wish everyone good luck in the candy draws!

Before we get to the grand prize candy, I have a card to share with you using the new stamp Starry Night and a sentiments from the Vintage Christmas Set and Jingle Bell Ride.

I've used some BG Jovial papers, totally in love with these! I made an easel card with black and red card stock. I've embellished with glitter, faux stitching, poinsettia flowers, brads, and sticky gems, and pretty polka dot organdy ribbon. On the inside of my card I added a little gift tag and pocket (got this idea from Bev on a card she posted last week). The image and sentiment on the tag is from the Vintage Christmas Set.

This card fits some challenges too...
Charisma Cardz: Christmas Crafting
Stamp Insanity: Heavy Metal
Die Cut Dreams Christmas Club: Glitter, Ribbons, Gems
Winter Wonderland: Male Christmas Cards
Polka Doodles: Fancy Fold
ABC Challenge: E is for Easel
Paper Play Challenges: Hidden Extra sponsored by Whimsy
Fab n Funky: Black and White one other color
Stampavie and More: More than one fold
Secret Crafter: Easel Cards
Stamptacular Sunday: Layer it On!


Now on to the candy! One lucky participant will win all 9 of the brand new Holiday Whimsy Stamps! This prize is valued at almost $75.00! 

Anyone, from anywhere, who participated in our hop today or does so in the next few days, can enter for a chance to win. Please leave your name and blog link using the linky below. Don't have a blog, no problem, just add your name and link back here to my blog then leave a comment with an email address for a way to contact you in the event you are the lucky winner. Winners of all the candy prizes will be announced on Thursday, October 7th after Noon EST when the hop ends.

Thank you all again for joining us today! Happy Holidays!
