Hello and welcome to the Whimsy Stamps February new rubber release BLOG HOP! SIXTEEN gorgeous new Whimsy Stamps and two new dies are being released today! They are available to buy right now from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favourites.

If you would like to participate in the hop and you didn’t arrive here from Tracy’s blog, please CLICK HERE to return to the beginning of the hop at Chris’s blog.

The hop starts today (Wednesday February 9th at noon EST) and ends on Wednesday, February 16th at 12 noon (EST).

For this hop we have 6 different prize draws – with two grand prizes at the beginning and end of the very end of the hop, but there are also 4 mini candy stops throughout the hop! I’m not going to tell you where they are, so you’ll just have to keep on hopping to find them! *wink*

For my sample I used Meljen’s Spring Sitter Bunny. I stamped it in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Express It! Blending card, cut it with Circle Nestabilities dies and the Out of the Box Technique and colored it with Copic Markers (Shirt: R20, R21, R22, Stockings: R20, R21, R22, R24, R27, R29, shirt: Y11, Y15, Y19, fur: E30, E31, E33, Butterflies: R21, R22, Y19 Y15, Grass: G40, G82, G85).

The image was airbrushed with Copic Marker B52, layered on a piece of black cardstock that had been cut and embossed with a Large Scallop Circle Nestabilities die. The edges were paper pierced and Silver Kaisercraft Rhinestones were added to the image.

For the card base as well as the smaller layers I used Label 1 Grand Nestabilities dies.  The card base was cut out of Sour Apple cardstock. Fancy Pants Love Birds patterned paper was cut with the next smaller die and stitched to a slightly bigger hand cut black cardstock layer. Melissa Frances lace from the White ribbon pack was adhered around the layers before the image was adhered with dimensionals.

The sentiment is from the Friendship Ticket Sentiment set. It was stamped on a thin strip of white cardstock in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink . The left corner was punched with a square punch to create the edge, three small silver Rhinestones were added underneath.

May Arts Organdy Ribbon was tied into a bow with the Bow Easy. The bow was topped with a Basic Grey button and the sentiment strip was adhered underneath the button. Three more Basic Grey buttons were threaded with white embroidery floss and adhered to the upper right hand side of the image.

A Recollections Rhinestone swirl on the top left of the corner finish off the card front. Next on the blog hop is Crissy Armstrong! Have fun blog hopping and good luck on winning one of the prizes.

Have a wonderful day! Hugs and smiles
