Whimsy October Release - Little Santa Claws



Welcome to Whimsy Stamps October rubber stamp and die RELEASE DAY!

Whimsy Stamps has released 15 fabulous new rubber stamps and 2 wonderful new Shapeology die sets today. These new goodies are available to buy right now from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favourites.

From today until 19 October, the Whimsy DT and Special Guests will be showcasing these fabulous new stamps and dies 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 ensuring you leave a comment on every blog listed for that day.

To be entered into today's mini blog hop prize draw, be sure to leave a comment on ALL of the DT's posts listed below by 12.00PM EST tomorrow morning. All winners will be announced on the Whimsy Inspirations blog after 12.00PM on 19 October.

And there's even more fabulous news!  Issue #4 of the Whimsy Stamps Inspirations Magazine will be releasing on October 19th!  It's a full issue with never-before-seen creations from the Whimsy Stamps design team and guest designers.

I am using Little Santa Claws image by Crissy Armstrong on my card, along with  Stockings sentiment set (there is a compatible die available too but I was silly enough not to get it).
I used a combination of different pencils to colour in that adorable pup - mainly Derwent Drawing Pencils which are great for colouring skin and fur.
The sentiment stockings are stamped with red and green Memento ink and coloured quickly with Copics. Then I sprinkled on some Flowersoft to create furry borders.
