Welcome to the Whimsy Stamps December 2012 rubber stamp and die release!
Today, Whimsy Stamps is releasing 20 fantastic new Rubber Stamps & Stamp Sets, 5 wonderful new Whimsy Shapeology Dies, a fabulous new Shape EZ by TLC template 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 favourites.

We are very excited that these extremely talented gals have joined us here at Whimsy as members of our magazine staff! Welcome Melissa and Janette! 

From today until 23 December, 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 (Monday 24 December) a 'Release Round-Up' will be posted on the Whimsy blog with a complete list of winners from the daily mini blog hops. I am part of today's hop and here's my creation:

I used two of the sweet images from the 'Playful Kittens' set by Sylvia Zet to make my note card set. They are 5 x 5 inches each, so .5 inches smaller than my usual cards. One is love themed and I kept the second one more neutral for everyday use.

Here's a closer look at the first note card:

I colored with Copics. The papers are from the new 'Whimsy Romance' paper collection designed by Michele Roos. Sentiments are from the also new 'Hello Hallo Hej' set. The glittery butterfly is cut out using one of the 'Elegant Buttterflies' dies.


And the inside is decorated as well:



Here's the second card of the set which is love themed:

The papers are again from the new 'Whimsy Romance' paper collection.
Sentiment is from the Key to my Heart collection cut out with the Notables 1 die. The Key ornament is a new Whimsy die as well from the 'Lock and Key' die set. The key image is a stamp from the Key to my Heart sentiment set.



The decorated inside:

And of course as with all my cards these come in a handmade matching box:
Copic colors used:
blue: B21 - 24 - 26
pink: RV0000 - 00 - 10 - R81 - 83 - 85 - 89 - T3
brownish: E30 - 31 - 33 - 35 & E50 - 51 - 53
green: YG91 - 93 - 95
grey's used from the neutral and cool collection
N0 - 1 - 3 - 5 - 7 & C00 - 1 - 3
