Whimsy Stamps September Release Countdown Day 1

Good morning crafting friends. Exciting news!! Things have changed a bit with the Whimsy release starting this month! From now on each month from the 1st through the 5th, we will be introducing a few new sets from both the rubber and clear line. The Whimsy DT will be showing you some great inspiration over these days. On the 6th of each month, the DT will be showing additional inspiration to help you make your final list of goodies needed. :-)

On the 7th, everything will be available to purchase in the Whimsy store. 

So here are todays rubber reveals. We are showcasing the fun new rubber stamp images from Krista Heij-Barber. There is Merry Moos-mas, Reindeer Kitty and Merry Christmas Characters.

For my first inspirtional card today I choose the grumpy "Reindeer Kitty". Hahaha she is soooo adorable, don't you think? I just couldn't resist!

She's been stamped onto hot pressed water color paper with black Versafine ink. I colored her with my Kuretake ZIG clean color brush pens. (see below for a list of colors used) I have added some Wink of Stella gold glitter to the little jingle bells dangling from the antlers. The sentiment, which is also included with the stamp, was also colored with Wink of Stella Glitter pens gold and clear. For the green on the word 'bah' I used a zig pen underneath and topped it with some Wink of Stella clear to match my image. The DP is from my stash (these are some no name papers I bought quite a while ago). To embellish I just added some star sequins in cold and silver and some enamel dots from the Whimsy Christmas Cheer dots.

ZIG clean color pens used:

We also have some fun new sets from our clear line to introduce to you today. We have Caution Dog Slobber with its coordinating dies along with Caution Wagging Tail with its coordinating dies. These sets are so adorable and perfect for all of us dog lover.

No automatic alt text available.

Here is what I came up with using the Caution Wagging Tail stamp set and coordinating dies which will be sold separately.

I used my selfmade cloud stencil (a how to can be found here) to sponge some clouds onto the background (Hammermill paper) with Distress Tumbled Glass ink. Then I used Distress Pumice Stone to sponge the ground. I stamped the doggie and the bone onto Hammermill paper using Memento Tuxedo black ink. Did some shading with Copics (Dog: C4, C2, C0, R00, Bone: W3, W1, R00 ) and cut it out with the coordinating dies. I stamped the wagging tail on to my background and positioned the doggie right over it so it would give the imagination that he is really wagging his tail. I love that! I've added the dog and the bone using foam tape to give it some dimension.
Then I stamped the first part of the semtiment, the word Happy, on the backround. The word barkday and the little paws were stamped on an extra piece of paper to pop it up. DP is just a simple striped paper. I've added more paws and some enamle dots from the Party Enamel dots set to finish off my card.

That's it for today! I'll have some more to show tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing you again tomorrow.
