Whimsy Stamps December Rubber Release!


Welcome to the Whimsy Stamps December new rubber release BLOG HOP! 

If you would like to participate in the hop and you didn't arrive here from Annika's blog, please CLICK HERE to return to the beginning of the hop at Bev's blog.

We have NINE gorgeous new Whimsy Stamps to show you today! These new stamps are available to buy right now from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favourites. We also have our wonderful special guests joining us for this hop - the amazing trio of Bev, Deb, and Beate!

Here is a full list of the super fabulous new rubber stamps being released today:
Winter's Joy (Crissy Armstrong)
Valerie's Gift (Crissy Armstrong)
I'd Follow You Anywhere (Crissy Armstrong)
Love in a Bucket (Crissy Armstrong)
Cozy Cap Mouse (Meljen's Designs)
Penguin's Present (Meljen's Designs)
Love Letter Seals (Raindrop Echo Designs)
Music Notes Background (Raindrop Echo Designs)
Friendship Tickets (Raindrop Echo Designs)

The hop starts today (Wednesday December 8th at noon EST) and ends on Wednesday December 15th at noon EST.

For this hop we have 7 different prize draws.  The grand prize of ALL 9 of the new release stamps is being hosted by Simonne at the very end of the hop, but there are also 6 mini candy stops throughout the hop! I'm one of those giving away some mini candy!  Denise was nice enough to let me give away the Friendship Ticket Sentiments and the Music Notes background. To be in the running to win these two stamps, simply leave your information in InLinkz below.

Here are the two stamps I'm giving away at this post:





First, I'd like to share my creations using a bunch of the new stamps!  I got to use my new sewing machine on one of the cards.  And I really had fun creating the last card :)  It was something really new to me and it was nice to try something I hadn't tried before.
