Whimsy Stamps Holiday Release

I am thrilled to join Whimsy Stamps as a guest designer this week to help showcase their October release! So without further ado …  Welcome to Day 1 of the Whimsy Stamps ...

2014 Holiday Release - Part 2


A few weeks ago Whimsy Stamps released Part 1 of their 2014 Holiday Collection. Today, the DT and GDT are extremely excited to start sneak peeks for the second part of their 2014 Holiday Collection! Over the next 3 days, myself and the team will reveal 18 *BRAND NEW* red rubber stamps/stamp sets and 6 *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 Stephanne Maraver, Vicki Parson, Denise Griffith, Debbie Jennett, Donna Rudy and Crissy Armstrong as Guest Designers for this release. Today we are excited to show you the brand new Art by Mi Ran, Crissy Armstrong and SC Design 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 inked up "Penguins Hang a Wreath" from the "Crissy Armstrong Collection" and sentiment from "Whimsy Sentiments Collection".
I loved colouring this particular image, it was fun, cute and loads of detail.
I wanted the penguins to really stand out (and look fat and cuddly) so I fussy cut them from another image and then mounted them to help give them dimension and bring them to life.
