Whimsy November Release Blog Hop!!!

Pin It

Hello fellow crafters and welcome to the Whimsy November Release Blog Hop!
To be on the right track you should have arrived here from wonderful Denise's blog. If not make sure and go back to the beginning at Crissy's blog where all the fun starts.
The blog hop starts today and runs for a full week until next Wednesday November 17th at 12:00 pm (noon)!

Ok onto the wonderful things that are being released today :-) And this time not only stamps...nooooo also Designer Paper and Dies....YAY!!!!! Yes you read right Whimsy is releasing also some wonderful  6x6 designer paper created by Ann and Crissy: Holiday Folly & Very Merry. And  from the Whimsy Shapeology Die Collection a Ticket Die - with alignment tool - and a Snowflake Die 'Winter's Jewel 1' - that also embosses - (the snowflake die is a pre-order and will ship later this month)! You'll find all the goodies right here in the STORE.

And yes of course some wonderful stamps too ;-)...one of them is 'Cozy Little Snowman' from Melissa Jenkins (Meljen's) which I like to show to you today. The other new stamp from Melissa is called Elf Bell Mouse and you find them both HERE


I colored this cute little guy using my Copics and also did some airbrushing around the edges. Isn't he adorable? And it was such a fun to color him! The DP is from BG and all the embellies from my stash. Here is another close up on the frosty buddy:




And here I used the brand new Whimsy Shapeology Ticket Die to cut my ticket sentiment  which is from an earlier released set called Holiday Ticket Sentiments. These dies are fantastic and so easy to use! This die also comes with a clear plastic alignment tool which makes it real easy to cut right where you want!!! I will post a tutorial on the Whimsy Inspirational Blog on Saturday on how to use this ticket die! You might want to check it out!



On the inside of my card I used one of the beautiful new Winter Seals by Ann Vento. There are 2 more new sets by Ann released today called Christmas Tree in Words and Calendar Background. You'll find them all HERE



There is also a new vintage set by Crissy Armstrong called 'Peace on Earth'  and New Custom Rubber Designs to choose from!

We have wonderful guests for this release hop and I'm sure you already enjoyed your stops so far. Also make sure you are hopping all the way through as there are candies on some of the DT members blogs you definitely wont miss these and there will be a grand prize at the end...woohoo....and if I say grand I mean it!!!!!! :-) And now it is time for you to hop on! Your next stop is the amazing Deb
