Whimsy Stamps Rubber and Die January Release Day!!

Hello and thanks so much for stopping by!
Today is Release Day over at Whimsy Stamps and we are on day 3 of our 5-day long blog hop. Today Whimsy Stamps is releasing several new stamps and stamp sets, new shapeology dies and designer papers by our Illustrators and Artists Crissy Armstrong, Sylvia Zet, Elisabeth Bell, Raindrop Echo Designs, Michele R. designs, and our brand new Illustrators/graphic designers Sandy Allnock, Cathy Delannsay and Simonne Clay.

You can see the full reveal on the Whimsy Inspirations Blog

I hope you'll hop along with us today, and don't forget to leave comments along the way! During this 5 day release there will be several prize stops, and the days and locations are secret. So you'll want to be sure to hop along each day!

Today I am showing you a card created with the new stamp set illustrated by our new artist
 Sandy Allnock - "Skylar and Trigger".
Almost all of the stamps I used on the card are from the same set, the only thing that isn't is the row of red stars on top. They are from the set "Everyday Moments" by SC Designs (Simonne Clay Designs).

I colored the image using copic markers. To make the little dots on the horse I simply used an old SU stamp. The "floor" was made by swiping an ink pad across the bottom part of the card stock.

I simply embellished with some twine and a button, and did some machine sewing. 

To hop along with us today, just visit the blogs below:
