Welcome to the Whimsy Stamps October 2012 rubber stamp and die RELEASE (Holiday Collection Part 2)!

Today, Whimsy Stamps is releasing 23 fantastic new rubber stamps & stamp sets, 5 wonderful new Shapeology dies, 2 fabulous new Shape EZ templates and 2 beautiful 6×6 paper packs. These new goodies are available to buy right now from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favorites.

From today until 30 October the Whimsy DT and Special Guests will be showcasing these new products 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 by leaving a comment on every blog listed for that day.

At the end of release week (Wednesday 31 October) we will post a Release Round-Up on the Whimsy blog. This will include a selection of DT work from the new release week together with a complete list of winners from the daily mini blog hops.

For my first sample I chose the adorable Wee Boo image. It’s so cute, I can’t stand it. I stamped it in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock . It was colored with  Copic Markers (Little Dragons: BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29, E50, E51, E53, R20   Pumpkin: E95, E97, E99   Wings: YG01, YG03, YG17   Bow: C5, C7, C9) and cut out.  The image was stamped again on Echo Park’s Chillingworth Manor patterned paper, colored , cut out and adhered to the main image.

Another piece of Chillingsworth Manor was cut and embossed with the largest of the Classic Oval LG dies. Cloud dies (cut with Spellbinders Whimsy dies) were adhered over it and the layer was sponged with Gray Flannel Memento ink. It was then layered on a piece of black cardstock, cut and embossed with the largest Label Eighteen die. The image was adhered over the spooky background with  foam adhesive squares.

Last week’s tutorial on Splitcoast was so much fun, I had to make another Concertina card. The card base was created with Neenah Solar White cardstock and lined with more Chillingworth patterned paper. Black and green paper were cut with Icicle Border  die and adhered to the top. I think it could be used for “goo” as well as icicles.

The date circle is from Everyday Circle Postmarks and was stamped in Tuxedo Black on more Chillingworth paper. It was cut out and the 31st as well as a circle border were colored with Copic Marker YG01. I ran a bottle cap through my Grand Calibur (cutting plate and Raspberry adapter plate) to flatten it, adhered the sentiment in the center and topped it with a Epoxy Dot. It was adhered with foam adhesives to the upper left hand side of the image.

Part of a Finesse Rhinestone swirl,  a few rhinestones from a Sleek Strips Silver Rhinestones and a few rows of a Beautiful Border Bling – Chevrons finish off the card. In case you missed it last week, here is a video for this fold for the visual learner:

P. S.: How about a little giveaway? Would you like to win last month released Hazel and the Whimsy Halloween Grunge Paper? If so, just add your name to the inlinkz underneath. Open only for people with US address. Sorry.

I will pick a winner with the help of random.org on Sunday!

It’s time to post on the Spellbinders blog today. This week’s theme is to show you “Things you can do with the Grand Calibur”. For me it’s mostly cutting paper and cardstock, but today I pulled out bottle caps that had been in my stash for quite a while and used them as part of a Christmas Ornament.

I hope you  have time to check out the entire ornament and the step by step instructions on the Spellbinders Blog. Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day.
Hugs and smiles
