Whimsy Release Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Whimsy Stamps December new rubber release BLOG HOP!


We have NINE gorgeous new Whimsy Stamps to show you today! These new stamps are available to buy right now from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favorites including our Shapeology Dies and Holiday Designer Papers. We also have our wonderful special guests joining us for this hop - the amazing trio of Bev, Deb, and Beate!

Here is a full list of the fabulous new rubber stamps being released today:

Winter's Joy (Crissy Armstrong)
Valerie's Gift (Crissy Armstrong)
I'd Follow You Anywhere (Crissy Armstrong)
Love in a Bucket (Crissy Armstrong)
Cozy Cap Mouse (Meljen's Designs)

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 Bev's blog.

The hop starts today (Wednesday, December 8th at noon EST) and ends on Wednesday, December 15th at noon EST.

For this hop we have 7 different prize draws! The grand prize of ALL 9 of the new release stamps is being hosted by Simonne at the very end of the hop, but there are also 6 mini candy stops throughout the hop! I'm not going to tell you where they are, so you'll just have to keep on hopping to find them!

 
For my blog hop creation I used the sweet new image Valerie's Gift illustrated by Crissy Armstrong. This image is perfect for a Christmas or Birthday card. I of course, needing more Christmas cards, created another holiday themed one.

I've used these festive Bo Bunny Tis the Season papers and have stitched the edges on the sewing machine. The image was stamped in Memento ink and then colored with Copics. I also added some little white gel pen dots for falling snow and then some flocking to her fur trimmed coat. Lastly, I embellished with lots of snowflakes using the Spellbinders Snowflake dies and Martha Stewart punches, and gems and a sentiment from the Winter Letter Seals set.

This card fits the challenges at:
A Spoonful Of Sugar - Christmas
Creative Card Crew - anything goes
Paper Take Weekly - Christmas in non-traditional colors
Craft Your Passion - anything goes
Paper Playtime -snowflakes
There She Goes - bling
Crafty Pad - anything goes
Wags 'n Whiskers - snowflakes
AiFactory - winter
Creative Cottage - untraditional Christmas colors

So now it's time for you to continue the hop by hopping on over to Erin's Blog where I know she has something just beautiful to show you!

Finally, here is a complete blog hop list of our hopping order, in case you get lost along the way:


Thank you so much for joining us today! I hope you enjoy seeing all the new releases in "action" by our talented Whimsy Designers! Have a great day!
