Clearly Whimsy Stamps Christmas 2014 release - Sneak Peek Day 1

Hi everyone and welcome to the first sneak peek day of the
Clearly Whimsy Stamps October 2014 release


Over the next 3 days we will reveal our CHRISTMAS Clearly Whimsy Stamps release! We are releasing 7 new clear stamp sets and 5 coordinating die/die sets this week, and they will be available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store TODAY and selected Whimsy Stamps retailers on Saturday!!

We are running a special promotion until Sunday 2nd November, and have discounted everything in this release by 10%!!  Whimsy also offers FREE SHIPPING for US orders over $75.

PENGUIN FUN is 4x6" stamp set that includes: 5 penguins, 3 head accessories (hat, ear muffs, & antlers), 2 sentiments, 1 snow flurry, and 2 different pairs of "eyes".   When I was designing this set, I wanted the penguins to be able to have lots of different expressions, and so I decided to make the eyes of all the penguins empty so that you can add the pupils stamp or the closed-eye stamp yourself.  Now your penguins can look up, down, left, right, forward, with closed eyes, or even with crazy eyes, lol!


The companion Penguin Fun die set cuts out all 5 of the penguins, plus the hat, ear muffs and antlers.  You will see that the antler die has an piece at the bottom which is additional to the matching stamp.  I designed it like this so you can attach the antlers to the back of the penguin die cut easily, but still be able to stamp the antlers above the penguin when you are only stamping and not die-cutting.


TREMENDOUS TRIANGLES is another 4x6" stamp set and includes: 4 large triangles, 4 medium triangles, 6 small triangles, 2 tiny triangles, 2 stars, 2 tree trunks and a tiny circular bauble.  The triangles can be used to build trees or be used on their own to create geometric patterns.  This set is a very versatile, all-year set that you will reach for time and time again.


 And here is the companion Tremendous Triangles die set to go with the stamp set:

O' Holey Night

Happy Monday!! Hope that I can inspire you as you start this last week of October!!

For today's card I used the new stamp from Crissy Armstrong-O' Holey Night and a sentiment from the new Raindrop Echo Designs set-Notables Collection 2



I paper pieced the hats, scarves and bow and then colored the rest with copics. Such adorable mice!!

Have a simply wonderful day full of happy crafting!!

Warm Wishes

Happy Thursday everyone!!  Only one more day to the weekend:)  It's my turn, Shelby, to provide a little bit of inspiration heading into the weekend.  I hope everyone has checked out the fabulous October release.  Loved all of the new gorgeousness that hit the store!

I adore this new stamp from Art by Miran called Warm Wishes.  It's so versatile...can be Fall themed, Christmas, Winter and anything in between.  The die cut is called Christmas Tree and the sentiment is from a new set called Simple Holidays.

Thanks for stopping by today and hope you find time to craft and create!
