Whimsy Stamps Sept. Rubber & die release FINAL showcase day

Hi Whimsy fans!

On September 14th we released our fabulous new rubber stamps and dies. Over the past week the Whimsy Stamps DT and Whimsy Special Guests have been showcasing these awesome new goodies, and each day we held a 24hr mini blog hop where you could enter to win a prize! So be sure to visit the Whimsy Inspirations blog to see if you are one of the lucky winners.

Although the mini blog hop prize draws have ended, we still have one final day of showcases for you, so please visit today's DT to take a peek at their final new release projects:



Finally, you will be pleased to hear that we are releasing a Whimsy Inspirations Mini Magazine today that focuses on the new release stamps!! Simply click the link above to check it out.

And here is my card for today.

I used the stamp cat-o-lantern by Meljen's which was just
released in rubber. I also used the stamp set "lavish flourishes" by raindrop echo, also just released. I just inked it up with pumpkin ink, stamped off once and then stamped on the white piece of card stock for a lighter look.

The Designer Paper is from DCWV harvest stack. I embellished with a button and twine (my favorite embellishments at the moment), sponged the edges and then sewed the edges with my janome sew mini.
Not sure if it is visible in the photo, but the "hat" and pumpkin front were popped up on dimensionals.

Coloring was done with derwent coloursoft pencils and blended with baby oil.
Here is a close up of the cute image.

Oh, and the sentiment is from a retired Stampin Up set.

I would love to enter my card to the following challenges.
And that should be all for today. I hope you liked my card and enjoyed the mini blog hop!
Have a great day!!
