Whimsy Stamps - September Rubber Stamp and Die Release - Sneak Peek

Happy Tuesday everyone and thanks so much for stopping by!

It's that time of the month again, time for a little Sneak Peek of what will be released tomorrow at Whimsy Stamps. And of course we are holding a little sneak peek hop. Don't forget to leave comments on each DT members blog (listed below) for a chance to win some Whimsy goodies. 

For my card today I used the super cute stamp "Penguin Joy" illustrated by Crissy Armstrong. I have also used a new sentiment set (to be released tomorrow as well), Season's Greetings Notables 7, by Whimsy's Raindrop Echo Designs. I just love that shape, and of course I used the Notables 7 die to cut it out. These new goodies will be available for purchase tomorrow!
I colored these cute penguins using copic markers (listed below). I am starting to believe I am addicted to fussy cutting, seems like I cannot make a card without the image being fussy cut. The beautiful paper in the background is part of a 6x6 paper pack (Winter Frost), designed by Michele Roos for Whimsy Stamps, and it too will be available to purchase tomorrow.  And then I just had to use the gorgeous snowflake border die too, which was released last year.

A pretty simple card, I just added some silver cord, and a little bit of glitter for embellishments. Finished it off by sewing the edges.

Stamps: Penguin Joy, Season's Greetings Notables 7 (both Whimsy Stamps)
Papers: Winter Frost DP (Whimsy Stamps), SU pink, Neenah white
