Whimsy Stamps - February Release Showcase Day 1

Welcome to the Whimsy Stamps February 2013 rubber stamp and die release!

Today, Whimsy Stamps is releasing 22 new Rubber Stamps and Stamp Sets, 5  new Whimsy Shapeology Dies, 2 new Shape EZ by TLC templates, and 2 beautiful Whimsy Designer Paper 6x6 packs. These new goodies are available to buy right now from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favorites. From today until 26 February, the Whimsy DT and our February Special Guest Designer, Louise Roache, will be showcasing these new products with a daily mini blog hop. Each mini blog hop has a new release prize hidden somewhere along the way and you 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 27 February) a release round-up will be posted on the Whimsy blog together with a complete list of winners from the daily mini blog hops.


Here is what I created for today, using the super adorable stamp "Cradled by the Moon" from Whimsy's Crissy Armstrong collection. 



I colored the image using copic markers.

ETA: I received some comments about the paper piecing, however, the clothes were done by coloring with a copic marker and then simply drawing on the dots using the copic blender pen which if you know how the blender pen works, you'll now it will take away the color. Just thought I'd add that too, as I did not paper piece it.

The papers are all from my stash, some stampin up designer paper in bashful blue prints, and then the gingham is by my minds eye.

I used the alphabet set "Spell it out" from Whimsy stamps to make the word "baby", and the "sweet" ticket is from the set "Love mini tickets" also from Whimsy Stamps. It has been cut out using the coordinating mini ticket die.


I would love to enter my card to the following challenges:
