Whimsy Stamps May 2013 Release Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome to the Whimsy Stamps May 2013 Release Day BLOG HOP!

Today, Whimsy Stamps has released some brand new Rubber Stamps & Stamp Sets, Whimsy Shapeology Dies and Whimsy Designer Paper 6x6 packs. These new goodies are available to buy right now from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favourites. Please visit the Whimsy blog for a full reveal of this month’s new release.

Just as we did last month, we are now hosting a 3-day new release event each month where we will have a Sneak Peek Blog Hop on the day before the release (today!), a Release Day Blog Hop on release day (tomorrow), and finally a Review Day Blog Hop the day after the release.

Each blog hop has a prize of 2 new release stamps hidden somewhere along the way and you have 24hrs to enter each prize draw.

Today we are excited to share sneak peeks of some of the brand new Crissy Armstrong, Elisabeth Bell, Meljens Designs and 2 Cute Ink stamps that are available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store!

For today’s card I used the brand *NEW* Long Legged Lifeguard rubber stamp illustrated by Crissy Armstrong for Whimsy Stamps and the *NEW* Anchor die designed by Ann (Raindrop Echo Designs).

I decided to colour the flamingo as a juvenile as I wanted him to be grey rather than pink.
