For my creation today I decorated a Tando Creative chipboard stocking sent to me by a wonderful friend (thank you!!!!) and used the gorgeous *new* Cardinal in Winter rubber stamp. I have to confess that I didn't know what a cardinal looked like, but once I'd googled it, I tried to replicate the colours and markings as best I could with my Copics.


Remember that the entire new release is available to buy right now from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favourites ... and today we are holding a special Cyber Monday sale! Woo-hoo!! So go grab yourself a bargain or two! :)


** Guest Designer Contest - January 2013 **

Would you like to join us as our guest designer for our January 2013 release?

If you would like to be considered for this, please make a new post on your blog telling us why you would like to be a guest designer for Whimsy Stamps and add the direct link to your post in the Linky tool on the Guest Designer Contest page HERE.

Please ensure you include at least one Whimsy Stamps creation in your blog post (this doesn't have to be new, but it would be great if it was a recent creation).

The contest will remain open during the entire November release week and will close at 12.00pm EST on Wednesday 28 November.  We will announce the winning entry in our "Release in Review" post here on the Whimsy blog on Wednesday 5 December.
