Whimsy Stamps Release Day sneak peek and Die-ing for a challenge

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

Whimsy Stamps is releasing 18 gorgeous new rubber stamps and 4 fabulous new Shapeology dies today! These new goodies are available to buy right now from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favourites.

My card today features Wee Stamps Goldie and is also for this month’s Die-ing for a Challenge, the challenge is a fab sketch that I will use over and over.  OMW I love this stamp!!  I never ever thought I would colour up a mermaid but I tell ya this little lady has stolen my heart big time!  (For the UK girls she is in stock at Dies to Die For)

Bev-Rochester-Whimsy-Goldie

The gorgeous paper is Kaisercraft Chapter One – it’s just perfect for this stamp!  This stamp really has to be one of my favourites of all the Wee Stamps.

The seam binding, Cosmos Daisies, 15mm roses and 8mm semi open roses are all from Wild Orchid Crafts.

The BLING is from Flourish with a Bling, I chopped it up and only used a section of what was on the sheet.
