On Wednesday (22 February) Whimsy Stamps released this month’s rubber designs and new Shapeology dies. From then until 28 February 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 on 29 February.

For my sample I used the new Sympathy Bug image. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with a  Label 18 Nestabilities die and the Out of the Box with Nestabilities dies and colored with Copic Markers (Butterfly: E95, E97, E99, E37   Wings: G000, G00, G02, BG000, BG01, BG02, YR30, 1/5 YR31   Ladybug: N0, N1, N3, N5, R08, R27, R39   Branch: E31, E33, E37, E47   Leaves: G40, G43, G46   Background: B0000, B000). The image was adhered to gray cardstock and a slightly bigger layer was hand cut.

The card base was cut out of Solar White cardstock with the largest Label 21 Nestabilities die. Several pieces of My Mind’s Eye Be Amazing patterned paper were cut and embossed with the same die. The edges were sanded and the paper was cut down on the embossed edge. White May Arts Crochet Lace was adhered under the lower paper strip. Seam Binding was tied around above the Crochet Lace.

A sentiment from Stylized Label 1 was stamped in Tuxedo Black on a piece of Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with a retired Spellbinders tag die. The embossed part was colored with Copic Markers B000, B01. The tag was tied to the seam binding with twine and a button.

The layers were stitched to the card front, cut and embossed with the same Label 21 die that was used for the card base. The card front was adhered to the card base. Parts of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirls finish off the card.
