Today I'm back with my first sample for the Whimsy Stamps December release. Before I start telling about the release I want to tell you all that I have been asked to be a design team member for a new wholesale company, Let's Get Bizzee. The doorhanger I used today is the first product I'll be showing on my blog (the Let's Get Bizzee MDF deurhanger) but you can expect more gorgeous MDF and other craft products to be used here in the future. These products will be available in craft stores from the beginning of January. When your favorite craft store isn't selling Let's Get Bizzee products (yet) and you see something you HAVE to have, be sure to let your favorite craft store know!!
Now on about the release!! On Monday (17 December) Whimsy Stamps released this month's new rubber designs, Shapeology dies, Whimsy Designer Paper packs, Shape EZ templates and *new* Whimsy Prints pre-coloured toppers. From then until 23 December the Whimsy Stamps DT and Special Guests are showcasing these fabulous new goodies with a daily mini blog hop and I am part of today’s 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 this post by 12.00PM EST tomorrow. All winners will be announced on the Whimsy blog on 24 December.
For my sample I couldn't help but use Sylvia Zet's latest Wee Stamps masterpiece, the absolutely ADORABLE Playful Kittens.Let's Get Bizzee. I found this little sleeptime poem somewhere on the internet, it was about a cat but I figured a kitten fitted my images much better. The poem was mounted on a shape that was cut with Whimsy's Double Scallop Doilly Die. The swirls are from a Magnolia die and flowers and ribbon are (mostly) Wild Orchid Crafts. Everything has been hand stitched and distressed with Tea Die distress ink, a distresser tool, a sanding block, Picket Fence Crackle Paint and Diamond Stickles. Also I have added some liquid pearls here and there.
