Welcome to the Whimsy Stamps new release celebration!

If you've come here from Erin's blog, then you're on the right track.  If not, please head over to Crissy's blog to make sure you haven't missed anyone's gorgeous creations along the way!

Well, this is getting redundant, but again, I'm so excited for this Whimsy Stamps release!  I got so caught up with using the stamps that I managed to use ALL the stamps (or at least one stamp from each set) from this new release.  Yep, this is going to be a long post with three different projects, and lots of information, so please bear with me!

Crissy Armstrong - Peace on Earth
Raindrop Echo Designs - Christmas Tree in Words
Raindrop Echo Designs - Calendar Background
Raindrop Echo Designs - Winter Seals

And below are some of my creations using the new stamps.  Gosh, I'm telling you, I lost a few hours over the weekend and just immersed myself in crafting.  I couldn't help it - everything was just such a pleasure to work with :)  Everything was colored using my trusty Distress Reinkers with Small Koi Water Brush.  I love rubber stamps! They save me time from having to fight with my printer to print on my thick watercolor paper so that I can use my distress reinkers :)
