Whimsy November Rubber & Die Release Day Blog Hop!

Hi everyone and welcome to the
Whimsy Stamps November Rubber & Die Release Blog Hop!

Our brand new November release Rubber Stamps, Whimsy Shapeology Dies and Whimsy Designer Paper 6x6 pack... and *New* Digital Printables Collection 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 Elisabeth Bell and Crissy Armstrong stamps! The 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 card I have used the gorgeous new Elisabeth Bell image "Apple Cider Jubilee". I've also made a sweet little matching gift box with one of the fabulous new "Vintage ChristmasDigital Printables Collection by Michele Roos.


To make sure they coordinate nicely, I actually used the 'lid' printable of the gift box as my card paper too. As these Gift box sets are a digital item it was easy to print at a larger size and cut to fit my card... love it!

As usual, I coloured my image with Copics, and shaded the background with Distress Inks 'Antique Linen' to soften.

As well as the cute little printed gift box, the Digital Printable Collections also come with cool Sentiment Banners and Floral Embellishments. I used the printed "Vintage Christmas" Pointettias on both my card and gift box. To give them some extra life I shaped them with my fingers, and applied Liquitex Acrylic Medium (similar to Mod Podge) and Stickles for a little shine.


Hope you like my Christmas Gift Set!
