Whimsy Stamps New Release Blog Hop


Hi All!

Today is the day! The Whimsy Stamps new release blog hop is here! The Whimsy Designers and I are all so excited to finally be able to share these products with you! In the store you will find 1 new Crissy Armstrong set of vintage holiday designs, 2 super cute new Meljen's Designs stamps, and 3 new sentiment sets by Raindrop Echo Designs including a fun calendar background stamp and some new Letter Seals.

We are also releasing a new line of Whimsy Designer Paper created by Ann Vento and Crissy Armstrong which coordinate with all of our holiday rubber stamps. And a new metal die collection! There's a ticket die to making punching out all your ticket sentiments quick and easy and a beautifully elegant snowflake die called Winter's Jewel 1 that cuts and embosses! Phew...I think that's everything!


Now on to our hop! Sit back, relax, and enjoy the eye candy feast the DT girls have in store for you! If you are joining me from Lori's blog, you are on the right track, but if you just stumbled on to our hop today, you will want to go back to Crissy's blog for the start of our hop! The hop is a bit long, but trust me when I say it will be worth it! There are plenty of prize chances mixed in the rotation too and a grand prize stop at the end.

I have a little card and candy treat to share for my hop creation today. And I've used a few of the new rubber stamps...Elf Bell Mouse, Calendar BG, Winter Letter Seals, the ticket die and our Holiday Tickets from the last release.

First up is my card. The papers are Bo Bunny and have been distressed and stitched on the sewing machine. I colored this sweet little mouse with Copics and then added some Stickle glitter highlights. The card was embellished with ribbon, charms and silver twine, snowflakes and sticky gems, and then finally sprayed with glimmer mist.

This is my little candy treat match book which holds a square of Ghirardelli chocolate. The papers are again Bo Bunny and have been distressed. Then I added one of the new Winter Letter Seals to the middle and a snowflake and sticky gem to finish it off.

This card/treat set fits the challenges at:
A Spoonful Of Sugar - snow / snowflakes
Caardvarks - holiday cards using die cuts
Flourishes - glitter
Craft Your Passion - 2 of anything
Lexi's Creations - anything goes
One Stitch At A Time - winter wonderland

Thanks for stopping at my blog today. The next stop on the hop is Iris's blog! Be sure to hop over there so you don't miss what she has in store for you! And if you hop all the way to the end of the hop today, you will be able to enter your name for a chance to win....a huge prize pack which contains all the new rubber stamps from this release (6 stamps), 2 packs of our 6x6 papers, and a ticket die! And if you don't have time to hop today, no worries. The hop will be open from now until Noon EST on Wednesday the 17th. Good luck to everyone and happy hopping!
