Whimsy Stamps - January Rubber Stamp Release Sneak Peek- Day 1

Happy Monday everyone and welcome to the Whimsy Stamps January Rubber Stamp and Die release blog hop - Day 1!

Over the next 3 days we will reveal 16 *BRAND NEW* red rubber stamps/stamp sets and 1 *BRAND NEW* die/die sets. They will be available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store and from selected Whimsy Stamps retailers on Wednesday.

We are starting off today, by showing you stamp/die designs by Crissy Armstrong, Time for Tea Designs, Lizzy Love and Denise Lynn.

And here is what I made for today, using the super cute stamp "Crateful of Kittens" illustrated by Crissy Armstrong. 
I started out by stamping the image onto copic blending card using memento ink. It's been colored with a combination of copic markers and Faber Castell Polychromos pencils.
The sentiment is from an older set "Everyday Moment", also by Whimsy Stamps. If you are looking for short and sweet little sentiments, then this set is for you. Lots of stamps are included here, something for almost every occasion.
The designer papers I used are just some papers from my stash, as usual. In fact I don't remember when I bought designer paper the last time. I still have way too much and I am having lots of fun digging through it to find the perfect papers when I make a card :)

PRIZE ALERT ... We have hidden a fabulous prize of a $15 GIFT CERTIFICATE at one of the stops on today’s hop! We will draw the lucky winner from the comments left here and on today’s design team posts (listed below), so be sure to visit everyone and leave a comment at every stop to be entered into the draw.



Thanks so much for visiting! Happy hopping!
I will be back again tomorrow with another fun Whimsy creation!
