Hello and welcome to Day 1 of our January Rubber Die Release Showcase!

On Wednesday (18 January) Whimsy Stamps released this month’s rubber designs and new shapeology dies. From then until 25 January the Whimsy Stamps DT and Special Guests are 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 have 24hrs to enter each prize draw.

To be entered into today’s mini blog hop prize draw, be sure to leave a comment on ALL of the DT’s posts listed below by 12.00PM EST tomorrow. All winners will be announced on the Whimsy Inspirations blog after 12.00PM EST on 25 January.

For my sample I chose to use the darling Wee Bunny first. The image was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with a Standard Circle Nestabilities die and colored with Copic Markers (Bunny: E31, E41, E42, E43, E44, E47, R20, R21   Tie: B000, B21, B23, C0, C3   Leaves: YG21, YG23, YG17   Rose: R20, R21, R22, R24, YR31, W2   Ground: YG11 YG13, YG17, E30, E31, E33, W3, W5   Background: B0000, B000, B00). The image was layered to a piece of Solar White cardstock cut and embossed with the largest  Tear Drop Circle die and half a paper doily was adhered to the lower half.

Two pieces of October Afternoon Thrift Shop Paper to create a 4 3/4″ x 5 1/4″ layer. The corners were rounded and the edges were stitched. A hole was punched to the lower right of the image layers and White Organdy ribbon was threaded through.  A 4″ square of the same paper pack was taped over the stitched layers.

The image was adhered to the patterned paper square with dimensionals and the ribbon was tied around the main layers. Everything was adhered to the card base a 5″ x 11″ piece of cardstock, folded in half. A sentiment from the new Whimsy set called Thank You Tabs was stamped in Jet Black Archival ink. The solid part of the sentiment was cut out and adhered to the lower right of the card base and a layered flower was added above.  Stardust Stickles was applied over the flower as well as the flower in the image. Parts of a Finesse Pearl Swirl and addition to more pearls finish off the card.
