Whimsy Stamps New Release - New Artists


Welcome to our first rubber & die release of the year!

We are making some changes to our releases this year. We are now going to release our new rubber and dies every other month rather than every month. As a consequence, the bi-monthly releases will be BIGGER than our previous monthly releases, and so we are now going to hold a 5 day release event for each release!

We would also love you to join us in welcoming 3 new artists to the Whimsy Stamps family this month! Cathy Delanssay and Sandy Allnock are both amazing image artists who have their own unique style of art, and Simonne Clay (our DT Coordinator) is dipping her toe into the world of design and has come up with some wonderful new word art and dies for us this month. We hope you will love their designs as much as we do!

Today the Whimsy DT is kicking off our January release with a blog hop to share sneak peeks of some of the brand new Cathy Delanssay and Sandy Allnock stamps that will be available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store on WEDNESDAY!

We are hiding FOUR prizes of 2 new release rubber stamps on the DT’s blogs throughout the 5-day release event. You have until the end of the release week to leave comments on ALL the DT’s blogs each day. We will draw the lucky winners over the weekend and announce them here on the Whimsy blog on Monday (January 27th).

For my card I used the adorable Skylar and Trigger image my Sandy Allnock.  I colored it with my Copics, added some fun western material, used a great western embossing folder to create the barbed wire, then tossed on a cute burlap star.  It's a great image for that rootin' tootin' cowboy in your life.

 Thanks so much for visiting us today. Happy hopping!
