Whimsy Stamps June Rubber & Die Release

 
Welcome to Whimsy Stamps June rubber stamp and die RELEASE DAY!
Today, Whimsy Stamps is releasing 19 wonderful new rubber stamps & stamp sets, 5 fabulous new Shapeology dies and an adorable new Shape EZ file. These new goodies are available to buy right now from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favorites.

From today until 26 June the Whimsy DT and Special Guests will be showcasing these wonderful new products with a daily mini blog hop. Each mini blog hop has a new release prize hidden somewhere along the way and you will have 24hrs to enter each prize draw by leaving a comment on every blog listed for that day. At the end of release week (Wednesday 27 June) we will post a Release Round-Up on the Whimsy blog. This will include a selection of DT work from the new release week together with a complete list of winners from the daily mini blog hops. 

For my creation today I've decided to do some 'sentimental' stamping and used 'From Paris with Love' from the Parisian Romance' sentiment set. I just love this sentiment set, so versatile!

The color accents on the image were done using Distress Markers (Antique Linen, Tattered Rose & Tumbled Glass). Edges were distressed using Brushed Corduroy. DP is from an older Basic Grey collection called 'Capella'. I also used the new Eiffel Tower die, a perfect match for my image! I added Stickles Platinum glitter for some bling. In the background the doily is cut out using Whimsy's Double Scallop Doily Die. Border punch is from MS. Flowers are Whimsy buds and from my stash. Leave swirls are Whimsy's Vines Dies. All other embellishments are from my stash.

Here's a closer look on the image and the die cut Eiffel Tower:



And one more fancy shot :)

Don't forget: To be entered into today's mini blog hop prize draw, be sure to leave a comment on ALL of the DT posts listed below by 12:00PM EST tomorrow
