Whimsy Stamps February Release info and Wee Sympathy Bugs Project



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

Whimsy Stamps is releasing 19 fantastic new rubber stamps and 5 wonderful new Shapeology dies today! These new goodies are available to buy right now from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favourites. (NB All of Raindrop Echo Designs February stamps and 2 of this month's Shapeology dies were released last week as part of the 3 Companies blog hop). 

From today until 28 February 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.

From this release onwards we are doing things a little differently.  At the end of release week (Wednesday 29 January) we will post a Release Round-Up here 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.

So here is my first sample using some of our newly released goodies!!



I have used the adorable Sympathy Bugs by Sylvia Zet, coloured with distress ink pads, as well as our newly released Spiral Notebook Border Die and one of our new corner dies from the Corner Die Set!! designed by the amazing Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs!! All products can be found in store at Whimsy Stamps!!


I'll be honest, I've been dreaming of what I wanted to do with this stamp for what seems like ages. Alas, it's here in rubber, so hip hip hooray for us!!!! The papers are a mix of K & Co (text), Pink Paislee (backing) and Kaiser (green dots). I layered the image with Nesties dies and used several different ribbons and laces adhered with glue and staples!!! Staples are fantastic!! The flowers are a mix of WOC and I Am Roses and the distressing was done in Vintage Photo.


I'd like to enter this into a couple of challenges:
PaperPlay Challenges Critters!!
Stampin' For The Weekend Colour Combo that I almost truly stuck to...
Totally Papercrafts Ribbons and Bows
Truly Scrumptious All Creatures Big and Small
