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 today I stamped the darling Wee stamp image Heidi in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock. The image cut and embossed with the largest Classic Rectangle Nestabilities die and colored with Copic Markers (Skin: E0000, E00, E01, R20, BV00   Hair: Y11, Y21, E31   Scarf/dots: B0000, B000, B00, B01, B02   Shirt/Bands: E40, YG01, YG03, YG17   Jacket: E43, E44, E47, E49).  I chose the colors so it would work for this weeks Whimsy Challenge, which is the color combo brown/blue. I colored her cheeks really red because that’s how mine always look when I am cold outside on a winter day.

The image was adhered to a piece of Kraft Cardstock, cut and embossed with the largest Label 23 Nestabilities die and Stardust Stickles was added over the snow and snowflakes.

A 4″ long strip of white cardstock was cut and embossed with a Parisian Accent die and adhered under 1 3/4″ x 4″ piece of My Mind’s Eye MME 12 Days of Christmas patterned paper, which had the edges sanded.  The strip was adhered to a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of the same paper pack. The corners of that piece had been rounded and the edges were sanded and stitched.

Green organdy ribbon was tied around the layers and the bow was topped with a button, tied on with  Linen Thread. With the same Linen Thread a sentiment was attached. The sentiment is from the new Whimsy set called Celebration Mini Tickets. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar ink. It was cut out and colored with Copic Markers (B000, B00, B01).

A 2 1/2″ x 3″ piece of 12 Days of Christmas paper was sanded and adhered to the upper left hand side of the layers. The image was adhered to the center of the card with dimensionals. A piece of Canyon Brown cardstock was cut and embossed with the corner die of Parisian Accent die. That corner was adhered to the upper right hand corner. Rhinestones from the 72 Count Rhinestone pack finish off my card front.
