Whimsy Stamps September 2015 Release - Day 2

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to Day 2 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 card I used the adorable new image from Art by Mi Ran called 'Bringing Presents' and also the Snowflake Border Die . That sweet little squirrel is just too cute! And, as with all Mi Ran stamps, it was so much fun to colour with all that gorgeous hair and pleats.


As usual, my colouring medium of choice was Copic markers, and you can see the colours I used listed below. I used some digital papers from Sweet Shoppe Designs called 'Woodland Winter', and kind of coloured my background to suit.


The sentiment is also from Whimsy Stamps, but unfortunately no longer available (sorry I only realised after I used it!), but you can find the matching die on clearance with the link below.


I used Fun Flock on her coat and Stickles on the snow to give some texture to all that white, and finished with some roses from Wild Orchid Crafts.


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:
