Whimsy Stamps January 2013 Release - Showcase Day 4


Hello and welcome to Day 4 of the Whimsy Stamps
January Rubber & Die Release Showcase!

On Wednesday (23 January) Whimsy Stamps released this month's new rubber designs, Shapeology dies, Whimsy Designer Paper packs, Shape EZ templates and *new* Whimsy Prints pre-coloured toppers. From then until 29 January the Whimsy Stamps DT and Special Guests are showcasing these fabulous new goodies with a daily mini blog hop and I am part of today’s hop!

Each mini blog hop has a new release prize hidden somewhere along the way and you have 24hrs to enter each prize draw.

To be entered into today's mini blog hop prize draw, be sure to leave a comment on ALL of the DT's posts listed below by 12.00PM EST tomorrow. All winners will be announced on the Whimsy blog on 30 January.

To take a peek at today's fabulous new release creations, please click on the links below...

For today's showcase, I have some very CAS cards to share using the Balloon Cluster Die.  They took about 5 minutes to make each and that was really because I couldn't decide on which embossing folders and which ribbon/twine to use, lol.  I always struggle with manly birthday cards since they're the ones I need most often so I'm very happy with how these turned out!

Whimsy Stamps products: Balloon Cluster DiePapers: MME Kraft Funday Everyday Fun; Embellishments/Tools: Cuttlebug, Cuttlebug embossing folders, May Arts stripped twill ribbon, red hemp cord

Remember that the entire new release is available to buy right now from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favourites.

If you would like to join us as our Guest Designer for our March 2013 release please go to our Guest Designer Contest page to read all about how to enter. Entries close at 12.00pm (EST) on Wednesday 30 January 2013.
