Whimsy Holiday Rubber Release Blog Hop


Hello and welcome to the Whimsy Stamps new release BLOG HOP!

The DT have some fabulous new Whimsy stamps to showcase today:


These new stamps are available to buy RIGHT NOW in the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favourites!

If you would like to participate in the hop and you didn't arrive here from Janna's wonderful blog, please click here to return to the start of the blog hop at Bev's blog, as you don't want to miss these fab new releases!

The hop starts today (Sunday October 3rd at noon EST) and ends on Thursday October 7th at noon EST.

I posted a card I made using Starry Night and Holiday Tickets yesterday HERE, but for today's blog hop creation I decided to alter a moleskin cahier using the Life Defines newsprint stamp, versamark, black embossing powder, brown ink and brown ribbon:



I like the fact that the black embossing powder I have gives this worn and uneven look (even though it's not supposed to, LOL!).  It's Stamp n Stuff Regular Embossing Powder in Midnight Black by Stampendous. Does anyone have a really good thick but detailed black embossing powder they can recommend please?


For this hop we have 6 different prize draws - how FAB is that?  The grand prize of ALL 9 of the new release stamps is at the end of the hop (Denise's blog), but there are also 5 mini candy stops throughout the hop!  I'm not going to tell you where they are, so you'll just have to keep on hopping to find them, but I can tell you that I'm hosting one of the mini candy draws!!  Yay!! 

So to enter my mini candy draw to win one of the new release stamps (winner gets to choose!), all you need to do is add your link to InLinkz below and also leave me a comment (just incase there is a problem with the widget!).  I will draw a winner on October 7th after the hop ends.

Once you've entered my mini draw, you'll want to continue the hop by popping on over to one of our blog hop guests, the fabulous Mary Giemza.

Thanks for hopping with us today!

Hugs,
