Whimsy Stamps February Release Day 1


Welcome to Whimsy Stamps February rubber stamp and die RELEASE DAY!




Whimsy Stamps is releasing 19 fantastic new rubber stamps and 5 wonderful new Shapeology dies today! These new goodies are available to buy right now from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favourites. (All Raindrop Echo Designs February stamps and 2 of this month's Shapeology dies were released last week as part of the ‘3 Companies’ blog hop).

From today until 28 February the Whimsy DesignTeam and Special Guests will be 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 will have 24hrs to enter each prize draw by leaving a comment on every blog listed for that day.

From this release onwards we are doing things a little differently. At the end of release week (Wednesday 29 January) a special Release Round-Up will be posted on the Whimsy blog. This post will include a selection of new release DT work from the previous week together with a complete list of winners from the daily mini blog hops.


Here is what I created for today.

I used the brand new stamp "Party Penguin" from Whimsy's Meljen's collection. I just love this little cutie, and I think he is the perfect stamp for Winter Birthdays!

I colored him with my new Polychromos Pencils by Faber Castell.

The papers are from Basic Grey. The sentiment is also from Whimsy Stamps from the set Party Mini letter seals. Another fabulous set for all things party and birthday. You can get this sentiment set of 15 stamps for just $8. I punched it out using a 1 1/4 inch circle punch.

As you can see it's a pretty simple card - again. I simply embellished with some ribbon, and a few flowers and used a simple sketch.

I would love to enter my card to the following challenges.
