Whimsy December 2014 Release - Grand Blog Hop!

Hello again, and welcome to the...
Whimsy Stamps December Release BLOG HOP!

Our DT and GDT have been sharing some amazing creations made with the new stamps and dies over the last couple of days, and today we are celebrating their release with a GRAND BLOG HOP!

You can see all the stamps and dies from this release, along with the last 2 days hops at the Whimsy blog. And the entire new release is available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store RIGHT NOW!

For today's card I have used the beautiful new 'Dreams of Paris' from Art by Mi Ran. I also used  Vines Die Set, and both are available now from Whimsy Stamps.

The image was stamped with Memento ink, and coloured with Copic markers. I then fussy-cut the image and adhered onto layered patterned papers. The papers are from Teresa Collins 'World Traveler' 6x6 pad.

I die-cut the Vines Die Set from black cardstock to suit my colour scheme, and added red and white flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. I added a decorative metal brad to a satin bow, and finished with a swirl of rhinestones and a metal Eiffel tower charm.

Hope you like my card!

So now it's time for you to continue today's hop!

One lucky hopper will win a $25 gift certificate!  To enter the draw, simply leave a comment at EVERY stop along the hop by 12.00pm noon on Friday December 5th.
