Whimsy Stamps Blog Hop, Day 1

Welcome to Day 1 of the Whimsy Stamps ...
December 2014 Release

  I am thrilled to join Whimsy Stamps as a guest designer this week to help showcase their December release! Over the next 3 days, myself and the team will reveal 10 *BRAND NEW* red rubber stamps/stamp sets and 4 *BRAND NEW* coordinating die/die sets. They will be available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store and selected Whimsy Stamps retailers on Wednesday.

   Whimsy is thrilled to welcome Lizzy Smith, Linda Levoir, Pauline Yates and Crissy Armstrong as Guest Designers for this release. Today we are excited to show you the brand new Crissy Armstrong, Time for Tea Designs and Raindrop Echo Designs stamps and dies being released this month. For a full reveal of these stamps, hop on over to the Whimsy blog!

 For today's project I have made a card featuring the new Winter Hat Border Die from Raindrop Echo Designs.  This is the first time I have made a card without a colored image in a long time and I had a lot of fun with it.  This die is so cute it deserved to be the focal point of the card.

I cut the die with several different coordinating card stock prints and paper pieced the hats.  Then I added some bling from my stash for the the balls on the ends.  The lights on the tree are glittered but it isn't showing well in the photo.






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.
Be sure to visit the Whimsy blog again tomorrow for the second day of sneak peeks. Thanks so much for visiting today. Happy hopping!

  12. This adorable card must have taken you ages to make - the paper piecing is so intricate. Love the fun pattern papers you have used and the tiny white balls of cotton on the ends. Such a fun card.
