From today until 27 November, 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 28 November) a ‘Release Round-Up’ will be posted 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 card today I used the darling  Christmas Hamster Wee image. It was stamped inTuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock that had been cut and embossed with one of Donna Salazar designed Snapshot Spellbinders™ Shapeabilities® dies. The image was colored with Copic Markers (Hamster: E40, E41, E42, E43, E44, R00, R01   Jacket: YG01, YG03, YG17, W00, W1, W3   Ornament: YR09 ,R24, R29, R39, Y32, Y35, Y38, E97). The hamster was masked and sponged first with Toffee Crunch, then with Peanut Brittle Memento Ink.  A button was tied on the bottom of the polaroid image with a silver cord.

The card base is a piece of 3 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Neenah Avalanche White Lineal cardstock folded in half. The bottom corners were rounded. The center of a 3/8″ x 3 1/2″ strip of  Carta Bella’s Merry & Bright patterned paper with my Cutter Bug Bee (to create the dots), then adhered to a wider strip of the same paper pack.

Three pieces of Merry & Bright paper were stamped with one of the Holiday Circle Pennants. They were cut out and adhered under the paper strips before they were adhered to the lower half of the card base. The hamster image was adhered slightly askew over the strip with foam adhesive squares. Rhinestones from a Sleek Strips Silver Rhinestones finish off the card.
