Whimsy Stamps March 2015 Release - Day 1

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

Over the next 3 days we will reveal 16 *BRAND NEW* red rubber stamps/stamp sets. 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 Lizzy Love and Denise Lynn stamps being released this month. For a full reveal of these stamps, check out the Whimsy blog.

For today's hop, I have used this cute and fun new image from the always fabulous Crissy Armstrong. I have also used 'Happy Hello' sentiments from the Clearly Whimsy Stamps Collection, and 'Notables 2 Die'.  Of course they are all available at the Whimsy Stamps store.

I figured my U.S. friends could use a reminder that Spring will eventually arrive -with BBQ's and sunshine! - so I created an American flag look with my papers. ;)

The image is stamped in Memento Tuxedo ink, coloured with Copic markers, and die cut with a circle. I then matt this with another circle of red.

The papers are 'Let Freedom Ring' digital papers from Sweet Shoppe Designs, and obviously perfect for my 'US flag-look'. All the edges were inked with Distress Ink 'Frayed Burlap'.

Each sentiment is matted with blue cardstock, and arranged with my foam-mounted image onto the card as shown. I finished wish a red satin bow, and some red and white roses.

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

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