Whimsy Stamps Holiday Release Blog Hop!!!

Hello everyone!

Today is the day when the most beautiful Holiday stamps are being released at Whimsy Stamps! Welcome to our blog hop!! :)

You should have arrived here from the super talented Bev Rochester, if not, then you should go back to Bev's blog to start the hop from the beginning! :)

There are 9 new designs including:
- 3 new images by the talented Crissy Armstrong
- Vintage Christmas Set
- Holiday Ticket Sentiments
- Christmas Wish List
- 2 large Background Stamps
- Multi-purpose Holiday Stamp

The stamps are absolutely gorgeous! I'm sure all the vintage lovers are going to love them, but of course, not only the vintage lovers. :)
They have been designed by Crissy Armstrong and Ann Vento.

This is my card:



I have used the most adorable image called: Starry Night, one of the fabulous background stamps - Newsprint Definitions and one of the sentiments from the Jingle Bell Ride set.
The paper is MME - "The Merry Days of Christmas", I stamped the background stamp and crumpled the paper. I stamped it again, cut the paper in two pieces and rolled them in. I used distress ink pad "Vintage Photo", added a Prima flower with a craft rose in the centre, a snowflake charm and four Woodware brads. The laces are from stash.



I coloured the image with watercolour pencils.

Don't forget to leave comments on each of the posts in the blog hop, as you get several opportunities to win some of the new stamps, including the whole release, which one lucky person is going to win! How awesome is that!? The blog s open till Thursday October 7th at 12 noon (EST), which is 5pm (GMT) and 6pm (CET - my time).

Now you should head over to the blog of the lovely and extremely talented Elaine Hughes to continue the hop!

Thank you for stopping by! :)
