Whimsy November 2014 Release - Day 2

 Welcome to Day 2 of our ...
November Rubber Stamp and Die Release

This wee we are releasing 19 *BRAND NEW* red rubber stamps/stamp sets and 4 *BRAND NEW* coordinating die/die sets. They will be available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store and selected Whimsy Stamps retailers TOMORROW!

Today we are excited to show you the brand new Crissy Armstrong and Elisabeth Bell stamps being released this month. For a full reveal of these stamps, check out the Whimsy blog.
 
For today's hop, I have inked up this adorable new image from Crissy Armstrong
called "Reindeer In Training". Isn't he just so sweet? I love his sweet, happy little face! :)
I have also used the Whimsy Vines Die Set.


The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Ink, and coloured with Copic markers.
I then masked the image and used chalks to make a soft sky effect. I added fun flock for the cute little bear, and stickles for the snow.


The papers are from a Sweet Shoppe Designs digi kit, aged with Distress Inks.
The gorgeous flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts.


Here is a close up of the sweet little reindeer in training...


I finished the card off with some cute little gold bells from Seriously Scrapbooking, and some pearls.

So now it's time for you to continue today's hop! We are thrilled to welcome Lizzy Smith, Olivia Marmara, Miran Jung, and Crissy Armstrong as Guest Designers for this release. Welcome ladies!
