Whimsy Stamps A Spin on the Merry Go Round


Are you enjoying your spin around the merry go round so far? I hope so! You're almost done because I'm your second-to-last stop :) If you've come from Sue's blog then you're on the right track. If not, then start at the very talented Bev's blog to make sure you haven't missed any fantastic creations!

Yes, it's that time again! We have another fantastic new release from the Whimsy Stamps Crissy Armstrong Collection! Today we are releasing three new rubber stamp carousel horses with a coordinating image and sentiments: Proud Momma, Spring Stepping, and Wings of HopeWings of Hope was the digital image that Whimsy was selling for a limited time in order to raise money for the victims of Haiti, but now it's also available in rubber with $1 from every sale going to the American Red Cross.  If you didn't get the digi, you still have time to help a good cause!

Of course, there's always fantastic candy up for grabs with each new release.  Make sure that you leave a comment on my blog, the Whimsy Stamps website, as well as the other designers' blogs by March 17th noon EST to be in the running to win these goodies:
Proud Momma Stamp Set, Spring Stepping Stamp Set, Wings of Hope Stamp Set, two pieces are satin ribbon, a package of ICE sticky gems, and 10 two-tone pink Prima roses
 
Oh, and if you're one of those people like I am who just have to have the new stuff right away, then you're in luck!  Whimsy Stamps will be offering a special promotion from noon EST on Sunday until noon EST on Monday. The first 25 orders placed at Whimsy, regardless of total, will receive free shipping. Shipping will be charged at checkout, but if your order was one of the first 25 orders in that 24 hour period, you will receive a shipping credit.

For today's blog hop, I've decided to create a four-drawer card with the Spring Stepping Set.  I don't often do many 3D items, but this time around, I just couldn't resist because this image is so sweet!  You can find the box tutorial here.

Stamp: Whimsy Stamps Spring Stepping; Ink: Copics, BIC; Paper: Cosmo Cricket; Accessories/tools: Cuttlebug, Nestabilities, dies, flowers from Wild Orchids, pearls, ribbons, Spica glitter pen, brads
