Silent Night...

Welcome to the Whimsy Stamps September 2012 rubber stamp and die RELEASE (Holiday Collection Part 1)!


Today, Whimsy Stamps is releasing 22 wonderful new rubber stamps; stamp sets, 5 Shapeology dies, 2   Shape EZ templates and 2  *BRAND NEW* 6x6 paper packs. These new goodies are available to buy right now from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favorites.

 From today until 25 September the Whimsy DT and Special Guests will be showcasing these new products 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 by leaving a comment on every blog listed for that day. At the end of release week (Wednesday 26 September) we will post a Release Round-Up on the Whimsy blog. This will include a selection of DT work from the new release week together with a complete list of winners from the daily mini blog hops.


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



 I am so excited to be part of the blog hop today, and to share my card. I used two of the new release stamps today, as well as one of the sentiments. I knew I had to have both of these stamps when the sneak peek was posted for the Design Team.




 The stamps I used today are from the Crissy Armstrong Collection - Christmas Choir Boy and Christmas Choir Girl, and I used a stamp from the sentiment set "Holiday Carols Notables 4".

I first stamped the boy image onto neenah card stock, then again onto a post it note. I created a mask with the post it note (only had to cut around the left side of the image though because that was where I needed the mask. Then I stamped the girl image next to the boy image, with the mask in place.

They have been colored using my faber castell polychromos pencils.
The paper is from a paper pack that I bought last year. I decorated with ornament diecuts using the new Ornament border die.  As I mentioned the sentiment is from the set "Holiday Carols Notables 4". I cut it out using the Notables 4 die. I simply embellished with some ribbon, and sewed the edges. Glitter was applied around the image.


I am entering my card to the following challenges:
