Whimsy Stamps - October Rubber & Clear Stamp Release Blog Hop Day 1

Hello and happy Wednesday!

 It's time for the monthly Rubber stamp release at Whimsy Stamps and the Design Team is ready to show you some wonderful creations made with these new stamps!!

Over the next 3 days we will showcase 18*BRAND NEW* red rubber stamps/stamp sets, 3 new Clearly Whimsy clear sets, and 2 Shapeology Die Sets. All of these new products are now available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store and from selected Whimsy Stamps retailers. 

Each day, for the next 3 days, we will have a new blog hop, showcasing more of the new release items along with a new chance to win.

Here is what I created for today. 


I stamped it onto Bristol Vellum card stock and colored using my Faber Castell Polychromos pencils, bended with baby oil. The actual stamp has some swirls around it too, but I fussy cut the tree, so they aren't shown here. The sentiment is from an older sentiment set by Whimsy Stamps. I inked the edges of my image circle using distress ink. The snow was made using Whimsy's stitched border trio die set. Simply embellished with some glitter and twine.

You can find the Whimsy products here:


PRIZE ALERT ... We have hidden a fabulous prize of a $15 GIFT CERTIFICATE at one of the stops on today’s hop, so be sure to visit everyone and leave a comment at every stop to be entered into the draw.
