Whimsy Stamps April Release Sample


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


Whimsy Stamps is releasing 18 gorgeous new rubber stamps and 4 fabulous new Shapeology dies today! These new goodies are available to buy right now from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favourites.

From today until 24 April the Whimsy DT and Special Guests will be showcasing these wonderful 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.

And here is my creation for todays showcase, I've used the amazingly sweet April Sunshine image by Elisabeth Bell along with a vertical ticket sentiment by Ann Vento!!



I've painted with my distress ink pads to bring this pretty little girly to life!! She looks so much like a friend of mines daughter, my heart just melted when I laid eyes on her!! The papers are Three Bugs in a Rug and the other treasures are from my stash!!


I'm going to pop this in over at:
Bearly Mine Crafts Tootie Fruity challenge
Sketch Saturday Sketch
