New stamps from Whimsy - and Messy is going MASCULINE

This month Whimsy Stamps is doing things a little differently - they are releasing the stamps and dies a whole week before our new release blog hop! So that means... the July New Release rubber stamps and dies are available to buy RIGHT NOW from the Whimsy Stamps store! Yippee!!

We are going to be holding a fabulous new release BLOG HOP on July 20th, when we will have our usual plethora of prizes, special guests, and lots of amazing creations from our DT.

From the middle of this week until July 19th, the DT are going to be showcasing this month's new release stamps and dies in the lead up to our BLOG HOP on July 20th, so be sure to stop by our blogs to see what we've created.

Here is a list of the new stamps, sentiment sets and dies Whimsy has released in July:

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

4 new Raindrop Echo Designs sentiment rubber stamp sets
A Touch of Elegance ~ Adventure Mini Postage Stamps ~ Vintage Bottle Labels ~ Vintage Transportation

2 new Raindrop Echo Designs dies
Dress Form Die (coordinates with A Touch of Elegance stamp set) ~ Elegant Flourishes

Remember, they are all available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store RIGHT NOW!

Happy shopping! :)

I have created a little masculine card set to show you using the Vintage Transportation and Adventure Mini Postage Stamps from new release and various backgrounds from previous relases.

I used Versamark in for stamping and various embossing powders for heat embossing. All the papers were inked with Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain and Aged Mahogany.
I stamped Adventure Mini Postage Stamps straight onto background paper here with brown and red inks.
The crickled and distressed paper here is from the packaging of my glue gun tape rolls, lol.  The background papers are created using Life Defined Background and Music Notes Background (the last I stamped haphazardly without the use of the block.).
The backgound is fabric-covered card I've had for ages and the corrugated stuff is from the top of chocolates in chocolate box.
Thanks for visiting my humble abode here!! :)
