Whimsy Stamps July/ CHA Rubber Release Day Hop!

 Hi everyone and welcome to the
Whimsy Stamps July / CHA Rubber Release Day Blog Hop!
Our brand new July release Rubber Stamps, Stamp Sets, Whimsy Shapeology Dies, Shape EZ by TLC templates and Whimsy Designer Paper 6x6 packs are now available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store!! For a full reveal of our new release goodies, please visit the Whimsy blog.

To celebrate our new release, the DT are holding a blog hop today and are sharing creations made with some of the brand new Crissy Armstrong, Elisabeth Bell and Meljens Designs stamps!
For those of you who are new to Whimsy Stamps, we hold a 3-day new release event each month: a Sneak Peek Blog Hop on the day before the release (yesterday), a Release Day Blog Hop on release day (today), and finally a Review Day Blog Hop the day after the release (tomorrow).

Each blog hop has a prize of 2 new release stamps hidden somewhere along the way and you have 24hrs to enter each prize draw! To be entered into today's blog hop prize draw, be sure to leave a comment on ALL of the DT's posts listed below by 12.00PM EST tomorrow. All winners will be announced on the Whimsy blog on Friday.

For today's Blop Hop I have used this adorable new stamp from Crissy Armstrong called "The Gangs All Here". How cute are all these happy little faces? Crissy really is the Queen of cute animal stamps!


The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Ink, and coloured with Copics, The background is sponged with Distress Inks for a softer look. I liked the 'barn-like' feel of the red paneled paper, and the country tones of the red and yellow floral. And of course gingham ribbon makes anything look a bit quaint and country!


I popped the image up on mounted foam and framed it with Lacey Nestabilities, so they look like they are peeking out of the card ;)  All the details are in the products list below.
Hope you like it!
