Whimsy Stamps October 2015 Release - Day 1

Hi Everyone!
Welcome to Day 1 of our...

October Rubber Stamp and Die Release

Over the next 3 days we will showcase 18*BRAND NEW* red rubber stamps/stamp sets, 3 new Clearly Whimsy clear sets, and 2 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 used this adorable new image from Crissy Armstrong called Christmas Giraffe.  He's so quick to colour and such a cutie! :) And he's available right now from the Whimsy Stamps store.


My Christmas Giraffe  is stamped in Memento Tuxedo ink and coloured with Copic markers, and the colours are listed below.


The papers are from the Sweet Shoppe Designs 'Christmas in Toyland' digital kit, and all the edges were inked with Distress Ink 'Frayed Burlap'.


I mounted the image piece with mounting foam, and embellished with some SU ribbon, Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and pearls 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 3 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:
