It's almost time again for Whimsy Stamps
newest Rubber stamp release! Over the next 3 days we will be holding a daily blog hop showing you creations made with these new goodies. The Grand Blog Hop will take place on Wednesday, which is the official release day and all the new goodies will be available for purchase in the Whimsy Shop
As always, be sure to hop along and leave comments at each stop for a chance to win the prize. I have included the hop list at the end of the post.
Today we are showing you creations made with designs by Crissy Armstrong, Mi Ran and SC Designs and I am so excited to be part of today's hop.
Edited this post Oct. 8th, as I have redone this card to create step by step photos.
Below is the new card and I do like it better than the first card. Step-by-step photos can be found on the Whimsy Blog (Oct. 9th).
I used the stamp set Christmas Scene Builder
by SC Designs.
I started out by simply using the direct to paper technique using distress inks. Then I heat embossed the first row of skycrapers, masking off some "snow" on the bottom. I stamped the houses again with light gray ink to create more skycrapers in the background. Not sure I like the yellow, I wanted it to look like the buildings are all lit and are making the city glow...maybe I should have used a more subtle yellow.
The snow on the bottom was done by using a mask and more distress ink. The moon was also masked off, before I started inking the background.
I added a few sequins and then the sentiment with a little bit of washi tape.
And here is the hopping list.
Don't forget to comment on each blog for a chance to win! You have until Tuesday noon EST to comment. Happy hopping and good luck!!
Hope you have a great day!!
