Whimsy Stamps December 2014 Release - Day 1

Hi Everyone!
Welcome to Day 1 of our...
December Rubber Stamp and Die Release

Over the next 3 days we will reveal 10 *BRAND NEW* red rubber stamps/stamp sets and 4 *BRAND NEW* die/die sets, and they will be available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store today and from selected Whimsy Stamps retailers on Wednesday.

Today we are excited to show you the brand new Crissy Armstrong, Time For Tea Designs, and Raindrop Echo Designs stamps and dies being released this month. For a full reveal of these stamps, check out the Whimsy blog!

For today's hop, I have used this sweet new image from Crissy Armstrong called 'You've Caught My Heart'. How cute is he??

The image is stamped in Memento 'Tuxedo' ink, and coloured with Copic markers. The papers are Kaisercraft 'Sweet Nothings' 6 x 6 papers, and all the edges inked with Distress Ink 'Frayed Burlap'.

I added a piece of Guipure Lace and cream grosgrain ribbon across the card, and framed the image with a Nestabilities Romantic Rectangle.

Along with several flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, I coloured a chipboard butterfly with Copic and attached with a rhinestone swirl to finish.
So now it's time for you to continue today's hop! We are thrilled to welcome Lizzy Smith, Linda Levoir, Pauline Yates and Crissy Armstrong as Guest Designers for this release. Welcome ladies!

PRIZE ALERT ... We have hidden a fabulous prize of a $15 GIFT CERTIFICATE at one of the stops on today’s hop! The lucky winner will be drawn from the comments left on today’s design team posts (listed below), so be sure to visit everyone and leave a comment at every stop along the hop to be entered into the draw:
