Whimsy Stamps Sneak Peak Day 1!

I cannot believe it's almost time again for another Whimsy Stamps rubber release!

BUT make sure you join us for the blog hop on November 10th because it's not just a rubber release.  We're also debuting two new product lines!  We will now be offering metal die cuts in our Shapeology Die Collection (I came up with that name!) and we will also be offering Designer Papers!  The designer papers were designed by Crissy and I, with some guidance from Denise.  It's always wonderful to work with such great company :)

Anywho, back to today's sneak peak.  Today I'm sharing with you a card using this cute new Cozy Little Snowman illustrated by Meljen's Designs.  It's the perfect guy for your blue winter cards :)  I've also used a sentiment from the new Winter Seals set, designed by me :) The scene was colored with Distress Reinkers with Small Koi Water Brush. 

I used generously used Stickles on this card - it's seriously everywhere, lol.  The snowflake was made using dies from the Spellbinders Shapeabilities Create a Flake 1 and Create a Flake 2.  The snowflakes were inked a bit to give them dimension.  I added some Flower Soft on the ground.  I've had Flower soft for a while, but never found a good way to use them, with the exception of these winter cards.  I bought the Pastel Color Selection Box, which is a pretty good deal for what you get with it because it even comes with the glue!  If you wanted to get the individual pots, the ones that I used on this card are the Ivory and Baby Blue colors.

Please visit my Whimsy DT sisters, who are also sharing sneak peaks today: 
Chris, Crystal, Debbie, DeniseDonna, Lori, Patricia, and Vanja

Oh! And I also wanted to mention that we still have all two year anniversary celebration going on!  This week, from November 8 to November 14, digital stamps (excluding custom digital designs) are a whopping 50% off.  Yes, 50%!  Make sure to grab all those digital stamps that were on your wish list because now is the time to stock up.  Once the week is over, the go back to full price so take advantage while you can!

Well, that's it for now, but come back tomorrow for another sneak peak!  I guarantee that you will love all the new stamps from this release :)
