Hello Everyone, Happy Sunday!!! Today Whimsy Stamps  is kick'n off the week with some fun!!! Welcome to the Whimsy New Release Hop!!!

Whimsy Stamps is releasing some brand new rubber stamps today, and to celebrate the DT are having a Blog Hop!
We have 9 new stamps or sets designed by Crissy Armstrong (illustrator) and  Ann from Raindrop Echo designs (sentiment designer). The blog hop will run from today, October 3rd at noon EST and end on Thursday, October 7th at noon EST.

The team has lots of creativity and inspiration to share with you so why not grab yourself a cup of coffee and enjoy the hop.  If you came here from Suzanne Dean's Blog you are in the right place, if not you may want to start at the beginning for your chance to win many goodies along the way and at the end of the hop.  All you have to do is leave comments on each stop along the way to qualify.

Today I want to share the creation I made using Vintage Christmas!!  It is a gorgeous set with so many beautiful images and sentiments!!


I wanted the image to pop so I used no dp and put it on a white background. I colored the image with copics.
To give it a more vintage flair I used pastels and added some lace and pearls.

The second creation uses the same Vintage Christmas set but I used dp and made it more distressed and shabby chic.  The designer paper is Jovial by Basic Grey. The crocheted flower is handmade and the yummy lace is from my dear friend Sabrina.  (thanks Sabrina)


I would like to enter following challenges:

Shabby Tea Room- pearls and pastels
Creative Card Crew - Bloomin' Marvelous (2nd card)
Tuesday Throwdown - Punches (1st card)
Creative Inspirations Wednesday Challenge - Christmas in September
Sweet Stampin' Challenge - Punch it Out (1st card for the sentiment)
Stamptacular - Layer It On
The Creative Cottage #24 - bling
City Crafter Challenge Blog #24 - flowers & frills
Paper Sundaes #38 - something from your stash (memory box trim on my top card I have been saving for the perfect time)
Charisma Cardz: Christmas Crafting
Stamp, Scrap &Doodle - Anything goes
Catch The Bug  - Anything goes .
Glitterbabes - Embossing (embossed in gold on my second card)
Incy Wincy - Anything Goes
Pollycraft Monday- no designer paper

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you enjoyed my creation.  The next stop on the hop is the sweet and talented Janna Sicard.

Thanks for stopping by and for all your comments!! Have a great day!!

hugs,
