Whimsy Stamps November Release and Mini Hop Day 1

Welcome to the Whimsy Stamps November 2012 rubber stamp and die release!
Today, Whimsy Stamps is releasing
 These new goodies are available to buy right now from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favourites. From today until 27 November, the Whimsy DT and Special Guests will be showcasing these new products with a daily mini blog hop. Each mini blog hop has a new release prize hidden somewhere along the way and you have 24hrs to enter each prize draw by leaving a comment on every blog listed for that day. At the end of release week (Wednesday 28 November) a 'Release Round-Up' will be posted on the Whimsy blog. This will include a selection of DT work from the new release week together with a complete list of winners from the daily mini blog hops.


For today's hop I decided to use the cutie "Christmas Hamster" from Whimsy's Wee Stamps collection. Oh, how I love this cutie!!

He's been colored using my Faber Castell Polychromos pencils, face was done using copic markers.

The beautiful snowflake paper in the back was made using the new snowflakes background stamp, from the Raindrop Echo Designs collection. Love love love that stamp!! I used versamark ink and white embossing powder to heat emboss.

The designer paper is from basic grey (olivia collection). Sentiment is from the whimsy Stamps set "Holiday Notables 2". It's been cut out using the notables 2 die.

I embellished with some ribbon, gold cord, glitter on the ornament, and finished it off by sewing around the edges.

I would love to enter my card to the following challenges:

 To be entered into today's mini blog hop prize draw, be sure to leave a comment on ALL of the DT posts listed below by 12.00pm EST tomorrow
