Whimsy Stamps May 2013 Release Day Blog Hop!



Hello All and Welcome to the Whimsy Stamps May 2013 Release Day BLOG HOP! 


Today, Whimsy Stamps has released some brand new Rubber Stamps & Stamp Sets, Whimsy Shapeology Dies and 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. Please visit the Whimsy blog for a full reveal of this month’s new release. 

Just as we did last month, we are now hosting a 3-day new release event each month where we will have a Sneak Peek Blog Hop on the day before the release, a Release Day Blog Hop (today!) on release day and finally a Review Day Blog Hop the day after the release (tomorrow). Each blog hop has a prize of 2 new release stamps hidden somewhere along the way and you have 24hrs to enter each prize draw. Today we are excited to share sneak peeks of some of the brand new Crissy Armstrong, Elisabeth Bell, Meljens Designs and 2 Cute Ink stamps that are available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store

For today’s card I used 'Happy Little Whale' from Meljens Designs:
 
First I colored this happy little fella with Copics (C8-C6-C4-C2-C1-C00,RV00-RV000, R29-R24-R22-R20), and then cut it out. The circle in the back was sponged with Memento 'Cantaloupe' ink. The lighthouse was cut out using the new Whimsy Shapeology Lighthouse die. I embossed the blue cardstock  a Cuttlebug embossing folder. The sentiment is from the new release as well and is part of the 'Guiding Light' set.


This is also my Whimsy Stamps Inspirations Challenge card. Today the Whimsy Stamps rubber team are posting their challenge creations on the challenge blog. You have until June 4th to join this month's challenge which is "Anything Goes" and as always we have 3 prizes up for grabs: a $15 gift certificate, 5 digi stamps, and 1 surprise rubber stamp.


To be entered into today's blog hop prize draw, be sure to leave a comment on ALL of the DT posts listed below by 12.00PM EST tomorrow. All winners will be announced on the Whimsy blog on Friday. To take a peek at today's fabulous new release creations, please click on the links below...
