For my candy please scroll down! 


Welcome to the Whimsy Stamps September 2012 rubber stamp and die RELEASE (Holiday Collection Part 1)!



Today, Whimsy Stamps is releasing 22 wonderful new rubber stamps & stamp sets, 5 fabulous new Shapeology dies, 2 gorgeous new Shape EZ templates and 2 stunning *BRAND NEW* 6x6 paper packs. These new goodies are available to buy right now from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favorites. From today until 25 September the Whimsy DT and Special Guests 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 26 September) 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. 

Before I show you my card today I want to let you all know I have some *** Candy *** for you :-) As it was my birthday this month I thought I share some sweet stuff with you!  Please scroll down to the end of this posting to read all about it!

And here is what I created with one of the new Wee stamps designed by Sylvia Zet for Whimsy:

This is 'Holly' and she was stamped with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto MIC card. I then colored her using my Copics. DP is from Basic Grey and I've used the following dies & punches: Whimsy Shapeology - Star Spangled Tag, Layered Snowflakes, Martha Stewart - branch punch, holly punch. The sentiment is one of the freebies Denise includes with orders.

 A close-up on sweet Holly
I frosted the flowers (WOC) using coarse glass glitter to give them a bit more of a wintery look. I also added Stickles and glass glitter to some of the snowflakes.  Other embellishments used: Ivory bubble hat pin and crystal stem (both from Whimsy), button, jingle bell, rhinestones, pearl brad and seam binding ribbon (also from Whimsy)

 The inside is decorated to match the outside

 This card was also published in the September issue of Paper & Pixel Magazine
and has been sold to Heike F., thank you so much!

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

Gorgeous card. Absolutely stunning!

Karina said...

Dear Iris, I am almost sure someone copied your colouring you made for this card and used it for an own creation. Look here: http://www.handmaderw.blogspot.it/2012/11/hallo-holly.html
Am I right? And she even wrote she coloured it by herself. She made the same with one of my colouration.
Just wanted to let you know...
Hugs, Karina

Vanja said...

Hi, Iris! Your card is beautiful and so is your colouring. I came to let you know that I have noticed this image ( I mean this same image, I think it's definitely your colouring)on someone elses card, I now see that Karina already informed you, it's on that same link. I wasn't sure whether to interfere or not, but I thought if it was me, I would have liked to know. It's not nice when someone "steals" your work.
Anyway, I've been a bad blogger lately, but I hope to be able to visit blogs and comment more often. Your newer creations are also wonderful! I hope all is well with you!

hugs
Vanja
