Whimsy July Release Blog Hop



Hello and welcome to the Whimsy Stamps July rubber release BLOG HOP!

The Whimsy July rubber release happened last week on July 13th, but today we are hosting our blog hop to showcase the 9 fabulous new rubber stamps and 2 new Shapeology metal dies now available at Whimsy Stamps! These new goodies are available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favorites. We also have our wonderful special guests joining us for this hop - Deb Routledge, Elaine Hughes, Niki Estes and Zoe McGrath.

The Whimsy Stamps DT have been showcasing these fabulous stamps for the past 6 days, so if you missed them be sure to hop on over to the Whimsy Inspirations Blog for some more inspiration!

Here is a full list of the wonderful July release rubber stamps and dies:

5 stamps from Kenny K
Boogie Down ~ Holla Back Girl ~ Hot Weave ~ Spy Chick ~ Victory Kid

4 stamps/sets from Raindrop Echo Designs
A Touch of Elegance ~ Adventure Mini Postage Stamps ~ Vintage Bottle Labels ~ Vintage Transportation

2 dies/sets from Raindrop Echo Designs
Dress Form Die (coordinates with ‘A Touch of Elegance’ stamp set) ~ Elegant Flourishes

If you would like to hop along with us today, please CLICK HERE to return to the beginning of the hop at Lori’s blog.  The hop starts today (Wednesday July 20th at noon EST) and ends on Wednesday July 27th at noon EST.

For this hop we have 6 different prize draws! We have one grand prize draw where one lucky hopper will win a selection of new release stamps for hopping along with us. We also have 5 mini candy stops throughout the hop where you can enter to win a new release stamp!

For my card I chose Spy Chick by Kenny K and a sentiment from Vintage Transportation set.

I also used new Elegant Flourishes Dies set - cut them out from the designer paper and rubbed on some metallic rub-ons with my finger.
The image is coloured with Copic markers and some accents added with Sakura white gel pen and gold Stardust pen.
The papers are from Crate Paper School Spirit pad - I know the the card doesn't have anything to do with school but the colours and patterns were exactly what I wanted :)
The cogwheel and filigree jewels are laser cut chipboard by Make It Crafty. I used metallic rub-ons on jewels/medallions and copper leafing pen on the cogwheel.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today. The next stop on the hop is the super talented Iris's Blog. Be sure to pop over and see what she has for you today. And then remember to leave comments and enter for your chance to win the prizes on offer along the hop too!
