Whimsy Stamps September 2015 Release - Day 1

Hi Everyone!
It's so nice to be back with a new Whimsy Release after a couple of months break over the US Summer. Of course here in Oz we are just finally heading into Spring with some gorgeous sunshine this week!
I've been keeping myself pretty busy with magazine commissions for Simply Cards and Papercraft Essentials, as well as a few 'new' crafty pursuits which I'll be sharing about soon!
Welcome to Day 1 of our...

September Rubber Stamp and Die Release
 

Over the next 2 days we will showcase 19*BRAND NEW* red rubber stamps/stamp sets, 3 new Clearly Whimsy clear sets, and 3 Shapeology Die Sets. All of these new products are available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store and from selected Whimsy Stamps retailers.

For today's hop I have inked up this adorable new image from Elisabeth Bell called "Little Red Riding Hood".  I think she's a real sweetie. :) And she's available right now from the Whimsy Stamps store.

'Little Red'  is stamped in Memento Tuxedo ink and coloured with Copic markers, and the colours are listed below.


The papers are from the My Mind's Eye 'Lime Twist' 6x6 papers, and all the edges were inked with Distress Ink 'Frayed Burlap'. The image and sentiment (also from Whimsy Stamps but NLA) is framed with Nestabilities Labels 40 Decorative Element dies, and I used the cut-outs from this die to decorate also.


I mounted the image piece with mounting foam, and embellished with some lace, ribbon, flowers and a pearl to finish.

Our design team members have been working hard on their creations featuring these new goodies. We hope you will hop along with us for a chance to win a Whimsy Gift Voucher. Each day, for the next 2 days, we will have a new blog hop, showcasing more of the new release items along with a new chance to win.

PRIZE ALERT ... 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:
