Whimsy Stamps is releasing some brand new rubber stamps today, and to celebrate the DT is having a Blog Hop! The artists Melissa Jenkins (Meljen's), Crissy Armstrong and Ann Vento from Raindrop Echo designs have been hard at work creating some awesome holiday sentiments and images as well as some customized images.
There is one new gorgeous set by Crissy Armstrong called Peace on Earth filled with sentiments and beautiful holiday images, 3 new fab sets by Ann Vento called Christmas Tree in Words, Calendar Background, and Winter Seals, and then 2 new adorable stamps from Melissa Jenkins called Elf Bell Mouse and Cozy Little Snowman and guess what???
......today you also will be able to purchase a FABULOUS NEW Die to cut all those awesome ticket sentiments out. Yes, Whimsy is beginning to carrry dies and the Ticket Die is the first to be available in the new Whimsy Shapeology Die Collection. That's not all!!! Ann Vento has also created 10 new customized stamps and there is new Holiday paper created by Whimsy!! It is so yummy and I know I can't wait to get my hands on it!! There are 2 packs of 6x6 designer paper available created by Ann and Crissy each with 12 designs, 2 sheets of each design for a total of 24 sheets!! Woo hoo!! Whimsy is also taking preorders for a gorgeous snowflake die!!!
Now on to my creation!! I decided to use the adorable Cozy Little Snowman illustrated by Melissa Jenkins! I just adore snowman and this one is the sweetest! I colored it with copics.
Some of the dp is from my scrap bin but I do know it is Heidi Grace and the other is SU Candy Cane! I created the snowflakes using white glitter paper. The card uses the sentiment from Winter seals designed by Ann. The candy wrapper uses a template from Leigh Ann Baird called the easy candy wrapper available at the Wild flower patch shop here. The snowman was colored with copics and adhered on a dry embossed circle which was punched out with my SU circle punch. The sentiment on the box is from the Christmas tree in words stamp set.
