Whimsy Stamps Kenny K Release Blog Hop!

Did you hear?!?!  Kenny K images are now available IN RUBBER at Whimsy Stamps!

Whimsy Stamps have some fab news to share with you today - we have a new rubber artist joining our team.... KENNY KIERNAN!

To celebrate, we're holding a blog hop for this release.  If you would like to participate in the hop and you didn't arrive here from Vanja's blog, please CLICK HERE to return to the beginning of the hop at Simonne's blog.

As many of you will know, Kenny K is currently a digital stamp artist (amongst many other things) and although Whimsy will not be carrying any Kenny K digis, we are making some of Kenny's existing designs into rubber and then hopefully adding some new designs along the line that will be exclusive to the Whimsy Stamps Rubber Collection!

So to celebrate this wonderful new venture, the Whimsy Stamps DT plus our fab special Whimsy guests Elaine Hughes, Deb, and Janna, are holding a BLOG HOP to showcase the EIGHT images that are being made into rubber:



Remember that Whimsy Stamps will be carrying the rubber versions of these stamps only. Kenny K will continue to offer the digital versions in his store. The rubber stamps are available to PRE-ORDER  today from the Whimsy store, and will hopefully be in stock and begin shipping during the week of the 27th.

Releasing today are also some digital sentiments that work with these images.  You can check them out here: Fast Lane Sentiments.

The hop starts today (Thursday December 16th at noon EST) and ends on Thursday December 23rd at noon EST.

For this hop we have 4 different prize draws! The grand prize of ALL 8 of the new release rubber stamps is being hosted by Denise at the very end of the hop, but there are also 3 mini candy stops throughout the hop! I'm not going to tell you where they are, so you'll just have to keep on hopping to find them! Winners will be announced on December 23rd after the hop ends - what a wonderful Christmas present for those lucky hoppers!

Today I've used the Troublemaker stamp as well as two sentiments from the Fast Lane Sentiments set.  I have two versions of the card, one a little more girly and the other is an attempt at trying not to make it as girly :) I still ended up with flowers and pearls from my Viva Decor Pearl Pens everywhere, lol.
