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

Whimsy Stamps has released 20 fabulous new rubber stamps and 4 wonderful new Shapeology die sets today. These new goodies are available to buy right now from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favourites.

From today until 23 November 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.

I created this card with the newly released Cozy Winter Owl stamp from Whimsy Stamps. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with a Classic Oval Nestabilities die and colored with Copic Markers (Owl: E50, E51, E53, E55, E57   Hat:: R21, R22, R24, R27   Branch: E23, E25, E27, E26, YG61, YG63   Scarf: G0000, G000, G00).

The image was masked, a cloud mask was added and the oval was airbrushed with Copic Marker B02. The cloud bottom was colored with Copic Markers W00, W0 and W1 and Stardust Stickles was added to the snow on the branch and Sugar Sparkly Fluff to the hat trim. The image was adhered to a piece of Kraft cardstock that was hand cut into a slightly bigger oval. The pieces where adhered to a piece of Canyon Brown cardstock, cut and embossed with a Nestabilities Label 18 die.

Three 5″ long strips of MME Lost & Found Market Street paper were adhered to create a 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of paper. The bottom two corners were rounded before the layers were stitched to a 1/4″ bigger piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock.  May Arts Gingham Ribbon was tied around the middle strip. It was topped with a button tied on with Linen Thread.

The layers were adhered to the card base, a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Kraft cardstock folded in half. The image layers were adhered to the card with dimensionals. Parts of a brown Finesse swirl were adhered to the upper right and lower left of the card.

A sentiment from the new Winter Notables stamp set was stamped in Tuxedo Ink on Solar White cardstock. It was colored with Copic Markers used on the main image. It was adhered to the lower right of the image with dimensionals to finish off the card.
