Whimsy Stamps March 2012 Release!


Welcome to Whimsy Stamps 
March rubber stamp and die RELEASE DAY!

Whimsy Stamps is releasing 20 fantastic new rubber stamps and 7 wonderful new Shapeology dies today together with 2 brand new Shape EZ templates! These new goodies are available to buy right now from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favourites.

From today until March 27 the Whimsy DT and Special Guests will be showcasing these fabulous new stamps and dies with a daily mini blog hop. Each mini blog hop has a new release prize hidden somewhere along the way and you will have 24hrs to enter each prize draw by leaving a comment on every blog listed for that day.

At the end of release week (Wednesday March 28) we will post a Release Round-Up on the Whimsy blog. This will include a selection of new release DT work from the past week together with a complete list of winners from the daily mini blog hops.

To be entered into today's mini blog hop prize draw, be sure to leave a comment on ALL of the DT posts listed below by 12:00PM EST tomorrow:



For today's showcase, I've used a couple of the new images and a few of the new sentiments and dies!  In the last release, I paired up images from the same artists, but this time, I'm mixing it up a bit and combining images from different artists :)  Here I've used Crissy's Birthday Pile Up and Elisabeth Bell's Lemon Pepper.  Is it believable that Lemon Pepper is giving the kitty a birthday kiss? lol.

I used a few of the new sentiments and dies: Celebration Circle Pennants with matching Circle Pennants dies, Party Hat Sentiments with matching Party Hat dies, and the oldie (but goodie) Balloon Die Set.  I was actually quite pleased with the way that the Circle Pennant Dies Set cut - the circles were crisp.

I hope that you like my creation for today :)  I had a fun time putting it together!

Hi Ann,
Another beautiful card. I love the more muted colour tones you have used, and the mix of the two stamps is just darling. I would never of thought to put the Elisabeth Bell stamp with the Crissy Armstrong one, but it is fabulous. I will never look at my stamps the same again.
All the best Linda
