Welcome to Whimsy Stamps May rubber stamp and die RELEASE DAY!Whimsy Stamps is releasing 20 wonderful new rubber stamps & stamp sets and 5 fabulous new Shapeology dies together with 3 new Shape EZ files today! These new goodies are available to buy right now from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favourites.
From today until 29 May the Whimsy DT and Special Guests will be showcasing these wonderful new stamps and dies with a daily mini blog hop. Each mini blog hop has a new release prize hidden somewhere along the way and you will have 24hrs to enter each prize draw by leaving a comment on every blog listed for that day. At the end of release week (Wednesday 30 May) we will post a Release Round-Up on the Whimsy blog. This will include a selection of DT work from the new release week together with a complete list of winners from the daily mini blog hops.
For my card today I used the new rubber stamp "Hopeful" from Whimsy's Sylvia Zet collection.
She has been colored using Faber Castell Polychromos pencils.
I have been forever admiring brayered backgrounds and finally decided to properly learn how to do it. I watched a few videos, and I am getting better at it, but I still need A LOT of practice. So please excuse my not so perfect card.
The sentiment is also from this Whimsy release, it's from the set "Oval Letter Seals". I used the new Shapeology die "Fun in the Sun".
I simply embellished with some ribbon, a button and twine, then added a little bit of glitter and sewed the edges.
I would love to enter my card to the following challenges:
- Simon Says Stamp and Show... - Summer holiday
- Stamp and Create - One for the Ladies
- CAS-ual Fridays - Punches / Dies
- Phindy’s Place - Summer is Coming
To be entered into today's mini blog hop prize draw, be sure to leave a comment on ALL of the DT posts listed below by 12:00PM EST tomorrow:
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy our new release!
