Whimsy New Release - KennyK Collection

Hello and Happy Thursday!

Whimsy Stamps has some excitiing news to share with you today - we have a new rubber artist joining our team.... KENNY KIERNAN!


As many of you will know, KennyK is currently a digital stamp artist (amongst many other things) and although Whimsy will not be carrying any KennyK digis, we are making some of Kenny's existing designs into rubber and then hopefully adding some new designs along the line that will be exclusive to the Whimsy rubber collection!

So to celebrate this wonderful new venture, the Whimsy Stamps DT plus our fab special Whimsy guests Elaine Hughes, Deb, and Janna, are holding a BLOG HOP to showcase the EIGHT images that are being made into rubber:

All That
Devilish Donna
Download Diva
Kitty Katastrophe
Luscious Linda
Movie Star
Rock Chick
Troublemaker

The rubber stamps are available to PRE-ORDER today from the Whimsy store, and will hopefully be in stock and start shipping right after the Christmas holiday! We expect these stamps to arrive and begin shipping during the week of the 27th. 

Our super-talented Ann, of Raindrop Echo Designs, has designed some wonderful digital sentiments, "Fast Lane Sentiments", that work fabulously with these images - thank you Ann! These are also being released today and can be found in the Raindrop Echo Designs Digi Collection!

If you would like to participate in the hop and you didn't arrive here from VICKI's blog, please CLICK HERE to return to the beginning of the hop at Simonne's blog.  The hop started today (Thursday December 16th at noon EST) and ends on Thursday December 23rd at noon EST.

For this hop we have 4 different prize draws! The grand prize of ALL 8 of the new release rubber stamps is right here at the end of the hop, on my blog, and there are also 3 mini candy stops throughout the hop! Be sure to visit all the DT spots today to enter all the blog candy prize chances!

Now on to my creations for this hop using the new KennyK stamps! 


I have created two cards for the hop today, one using "Troublemaker" and the other using "All That". First up is Troublemaker....

I think she's one of my favorite image from this new release. I just love her pretty eyes and playful smile. I've colored the image with Copics. The papers are Bo Bunny, but I forget which collection name they come from. I've distressed the edges with scissors and then embellished with brads, ribbons, flowers, and a tag sentiment from Ann's Fast Lane set.



Next up is my card using "All That"...isn't she fun! She's so sassy and cool!

I've used some BG Olivia papers on this card with black card stock to make it all pop! The image was colored with Copics. I've embellished simply with ribbon and a gemstone charm.

OK, you've reached the end of our new release hop today. You can enter for a chance to win all 8 of the new stamps, by clicking on the blue frog below and adding your name and link below. If you missed the start of the hop and want to join in, there is a link list below of all the stops!


Thank you so much for hopping with us today and I hope you enjoy this exciting new release! Happy hopping!
