Preview of the new Whimsy Stamps release

Hi girls!!

Today I have a card to show you with a fabulous new image by Kenny K that has been released by Whimsy Stamps last Wednesday. This post is part of a mini-hop that started on the Whimsy Stamps blog. For the full details of the hop and the release please check the info beneath this card. Do want to point out though that by leaving a comment on this card you might have a chance to win a new release prize since there is one hidden somewhere along the way. 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 morning. All winners will be announced on the Whimsy Inspirations blog after 12.00PM on 19 October.

Onto my card:
The gorgeous Santa lady is called Mistletoe and I think she is SO gorgeous! The mini stamps used are also in the new release and they are called Holiday Mini Postage Stamps and you can cut them out with the coordinating Mini Postage Stamp Die. I love the "because you've been naughty/nice" stamp in combination with this gorgeous lady. I put a little cross in the naughty box with red liquid pearls. The papers used are white and red cardstock and a My Minds Eye Lost and Found Christmas paper pad. The pretty glittery holly are by Prima, some rhinestones from stash in the corner and some bandage and stitching to finish things off. Now a close up of the image:
As you can hopefully see she is 3D paper pieced and colored with Copic Markers. The furry bits have been done with Fun Flock again. And look at those gorgeous mini stamps! Here is a side view so you hopefully can see the 3D better:
And for the lovers of little pieces... here they are :) :

Thank you very much for your visit today! Don't forget to leave a comment because there may just be a prize hidden. Below are all the details about the October release! Have fun and thank you again!
