Whimsy Stamps November Rubber Stamp RELEASE DAY HOP

It's release day at Whimsy Stamps!!! Today Whimsy Stamps released several new super cute stamps, as well as dies, a couple of gorgeous designer paper packs and something completely new - digital card kits designed by Michele Roos for Whimsy Stamps. 
 If you'd like to see all the newly released products on one page, just visit the  
Whimsy Inspirations Blog to take a peek.
Of course we are holding another blog hop with some fabulous inspiration from the Design Team. 
And as always one lucky "hopper" will win two gorgeous new release stamps. All you have to do to be entered, is visit each DT member (listed below), and leave comments along the way.
For today I decided to use one of the brand new digital card kits designed by Michele Roos. These are so fun to create with and use! I used the kit "Frosty Night 1" and made this adorable little box. I thought it was the perfect size for a set of handmade earrings.

Yes, I did make those earrings myself. So proud of myself. I have been wanting to create earrings for some time now, but always got confused by all the different materials, stones, metals out there that I had no clue where to even begin. Finally decided to buy the e-book "visually teaching jewelery making", and that really helped me a lot. So there it is, my first pair of handmade earrings, which I will be wearing for my daughter's christmas dance recital :-)

The beautiful sentiment is part of the card kit. The penguin however is not, it is a stamp from today's release, illustrated by the amazingly talented Crissy Armstrong - Penguin Chocolate Surprise

The image has been colored using copic markers, and then cut out. I added a little bit of glitter to the bow and the hat.
Here is another view. I added an eyelet onto the polka dotted tag (which is part of the kit), then used some twine to hold the penguin and tag together.

Doesn't this make a cute little gift? Of course instead of the earrings you can add other jewelry, maybe some candy or even folded $$. The box measures about 2" square by 1 1/4 deep. Super cute!
And it was so easy to create, all I had to do is print out the template, then cut out, score and fold.

Be sure to visit the rest of the Whimsy Designers so see what they have made, and don't forget to leave comments along the way for a chance to win some Whimsy Goodies. You have until tomorrow, Thursday, noon EST to hop along. The winners from all the hops will be announced on the
 Whimsy Inspirations Blog on Friday!
