Whimsy Stamps Blog Hop day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of the Whimsy Stamps ...
November 2014 Release

I am thrilled to join Whimsy Stamps as a guest designer this week to help showcase their November release! This week Whimsy is releasing 19 *BRAND NEW* red rubber stamps/stamp sets and 4 *BRAND NEW* coordinating die/die sets, and they will be available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store and selected Whimsy Stamps retailers TOMORROW.

 Whimsy is thrilled to welcome Olivia Marmara, Lizzy Smith, Mi Ran and Crissy Armstrong as Guest Designers for this release. Today we are excited to show you the brand new Crissy Armstrong and Elisabeth Bell stamps being released this month. For a full reveal of these stamps, hop on over to the Whimsy blog!

 For today's project, I inked up this adorable stamp from Crissy Armstrong called Christmas Reindeer.







My project is inspired by the advent calendar card but instead I have made it a countdown to christmas.  I have colored the stamp using my Graph'it markers. The numbers and snowflakes around them are wet embossed and I added some Glossy Accents to the stamped image as well.  The snowflakes are punches and the metal brads are from my christmas stash.  My designer card stock is from Bo Bunny and the solids are from Stampin' Up. I inked all the edges with TH Distress Ink in Frayed Burlap.



PRIZE ALERT ... We have hidden a fabulous prize of a $15 GIFT CERTIFICATE at one of the stops on today’s hop! We will draw the lucky winner from the comments left on today’s design team posts (listed below), so be sure to visit everyone and leave a comment at every stop to be entered into the draw.
