Whimsy Stamps January Release Showcase Day 5 (monday)

Hello and welcome to Day 5 of our January Rubber Die Release Showcase!

On Wednesday (18 January) Whimsy Stamps released this month's rubber designs and new shapeology dies. From then until 25 January the Whimsy Stamps DT and Special Guests are showcasing these fabulous new stamps and dies with a daily mini blog hop.

Each mini blog hop has a new release prize hidden somewhere along the way and you have 24hrs to enter each prize draw.

To be entered into today's mini blog hop prize draw, be sure to leave a comment on ALL of the DT's posts listed below by 12.00PM EST tomorrow. All winners will be announced on the Whimsy Inspirations blog after 12.00PM EST on 25 January.

*****************

For my card today I used the super cute stamp Wee Bunny from Whimsy's Sylvia Zet collection, along with the brand new Thank You tabs from Whimsy's Raindrop Echo collection. Absolutely love those, hopefully Whimsy Stamps will release a set for some other occasions too!

Photobucket

I colored this cutie with my derwent coloursoft pencils, blended with baby oil. Papers are from My Minds Eye and card stock is bazzill and Neenah.
As mentioned above the sentiment is from the set "Thank you tabs", one of the newly released Whimsy Sentiment sets. Of course there is also a matching die available, tab 1 shapeology die, which I used to cut it out.

I kept the card pretty simple, I really wanted to show off the cute stamp and the awesome sentiment on this. Plus I am planning on using it for a teacher, and those cards I usually like to keep a little simpler. Not to mention that I really enjoy creating simpler cards these days...

I embellished with some green polka dotted ribbon, added a button with some twine, and then stitched the edges and paper pierced around the image.

I would love to enter this card to the following challenges:

This is really a fun card. So much to look at, yet it all does not distract from the adorable image. The way you added the flower and put bling on it is really pretty. Your stiching is also so perfect!
