You may have noticed that we have changed our rubber release schedule this month. We are now hosting a 3-day new release event where we have a Sneak Peek Blog Hop on the day before the release (yesterday), a Release Day Blog Hop on release day (today), and finally a Review Day Blog Hop the day after the release (tomorrow).

Each blog hop has a prize of 2 new release stamps hidden somewhere along the way and you have 24hrs to enter each prize draw.

Today we are excited to share sneak peeks of some of the brand new Crissy Armstrong, Elisabeth Bell, Meljens Designs and 2 Cute Ink stamps that are available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store!

For today's release, I've used the new What a LootMini Backgrounds, and Birthday Greetings stamps.  Isn't this elephant just adorable?!  The Birthday Greetings set is geared more towards greetings to put on the inside of cards.  It was a set suggested by our Whimsy DT member Ellie :)
