Whimsy Stamps January 2013 Release - Showcase Day 1

Welcome to the Whimsy Stamps January 2013 rubber stamp and die release!

Today, Whimsy Stamps is releasing 22 fantastic new Rubber Stamps & Stamp Sets, 5 wonderful new Whimsy Shapeology Dies, a fabulous new Shape EZ by TLC template, a beautiful Whimsy Designer Paper 6x6 pack, and 2 stunning new Whimsy Prints Collection. These new goodies are available to buy right now from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favourites.

From today until 29 January, the Whimsy DT and our Special January Guest, Gail Lass, will be showcasing these new products with a daily mini blog hop. Each mini blog hop has a new release prize hidden somewhere along the way and you 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 30 January) a 'Release Round-Up' will be posted on the Whimsy blog 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 decided to share with you my card using Floraline!  Such a sweet image.  I've also used a sentiment from the Everyday Sliders 1 set and cut out using the Slider 1 die.  I've also used the new Lace Doily Corner 1 die.

Want to hear some exciting news?! Whimsy now produces open-faced dies so that you don't have to create an alignment tool because you can see the sentiment through the die!  Check out the graphic below for an explanation of what I mean:

Anywho, here's my card :)
