Whimsy Stamps January Rubber & Die Release Day Hop!


Welcome to our first Whimsy Stamps rubber & die release of the year!
 
We have switched to bi-monthly releases this year, which makes for a huge release for you this week! And our brand new January release of 30 image stamps, 8 sentiment sets, 9 shapeology dies, and 1 designer paper pack is available to buy right NOW from the Whimsy Stamps store

We also have 3 new artists joining Whimsy Stamps this month - Sandy Allnock and Cathy Delanssay stamps, and our very own DT Co-ordinator Simonne Clay is also releasing her very own sentiments and dies!

To celebrate our new release, the DT are holding a blog hop today to share creations made with our new release goodies!

We are hiding FOUR prizes of 2 new release rubber stamps on the DT’s blogs throughout the 5-day release event. You have until the end of the release week (Saturday January 25th at 12.00PM EST) to leave comments on ALL the daily DT blog posts. We will draw the lucky winners over the weekend and announce them here on the Whimsy blog on Monday (January 27th).

For today's card I used the adorable new "Emily" by Wee Stamps.

I'm a sucker for little girl cards these days with 3 beautiful little nieces, but they are really into their 'pinks and purples' so I decided to have a play with some different colours for a change ;)

 
I chose my colours around some pretty Kaisercraft 'Marigold' papers, and coloured my image using Copic markers. I mounted my image on layered panels of the patterned papers, popped up for extra dimension.


Here's a close-up of the sweet "Emily" image... and showing some of the embellishments.

 
Hope you like my card!
