Whimsy Stamps - August Rubber Stamp Release and Whimsy Inspires Challenge

Good morning everyone and thanks so much for stopping by!

 It's release day today at Whimsy Stamps, and several new and gorgeous stamps, dies Shape EZ templates, and papers have been released. Don't forget about our brand new illustrator, Time for Tea Designs at Whimsy Stamps. We are holding a 3 day blog hop in celebration -  if you haven't hopped along yet in that blog hop, you still have plenty of time to do that, for a chance to be entered into the prize draw.

Of course today we are holding our "regular" new release hop, which lasts for 24 hours only, and another chance to win some whimsy goodies. To hop along in today's hop simply visit all the blogs listed below and don't forget to leave a comment along the way. The prize is hidden in one of the blogs. You have until Thursday 12Noon EST to hop along in this one.

It's also time for the Rubber Stamp Design team to share a Challenge creation with you for this month's challenge of Clean and Simple. To see what the rest of the Design Team created or to play along in our challenge, simply visit the challenge blog.

 Here is what I created for this blog hop and for the challenge.


I used the stamp "Goldfish Kid" from the Kenny K. collection. I used copic markers to color the image. The sentiment is from the new set Everyday Honeycomb sentiments by Raindrop Echo Designs.  You can use the new Honeycomb dies to cut them out. I don't usually go with trends much, but have to admit that these honeycomb shapes are so much fun to work with!

Here is another view. 
I apologize for not having the copic colors used handy. I wrote them down on a piece of paper and now it's missing. From now on I will type them up in a post on my computer as I finish coloring, that way it won't be lost.

Since it's Clean and Simple challenge month at Whimsy Challenges, I made a CAS card for it, using just minimal amount of papers and embellishments. The gorgeous striped blue paper is a vellum type paper which my friend brought back for me from her visit to Japan. So loving it!! And the package came with several different colors!  I simply added a strip of pumpkin card stock next to the designer paper. Then a little clear button with some twine to finish it off. In case you are wondering about the dots behind the image, it's from the set "itty bitty backgrounds" (long retired SU set). I randomly stamped it behind the image before adhering the image onto the card front.

That's it about my card, below is the list of participating Designers, if you like to hop along. Lots of us participating, so you will see lots of lovely creations along the way!



Have fun hopping and thanks again for visiting!
