Inspiring Apple

Hello and welcome to the
Whimsy Stamps September Release Review Day Blog Hop!

Yesterday (18 September) Whimsy Stamps released this month's new rubber designs, Shapeology dies and Whimsy Designer Paper packs. From 17 September until today the Whimsy Stamps DT are showcasing these fabulous new goodies with a daily blog hop!

I decided to use a beautiful new stamp by Elisabeth Bell called Apple Dumpling.
Isn't she so sweet!!!

I also used the new set from Raindrop Echo called Holiday Sliders 3 again.  As you can probably tell, that sentiment doesn't come with the set, it is actually from Treasured Moments Tickets.  I just cut the sentiment out in an oval and placed it on top.  There are lots of smaller sentiments that could be used with the Holiday Sliders set this way, such as ones in the mini letter seals and ticket sets. So it is a great Christmas set but it also means you have a beautiful frame for your sentiments that you can use throughout the year.

Ingredients :

Stamps : Apple Dumpling, Holiday Sliders 3, Treasured Moments Tickets
Card : Black, x-press it, blushing bride, Delightful (Authentique)
Ink : memento black
Other : big shot, marvellous squares SB, Slider 3 die, circles and ovals SB, red satin ribbon, copics

R000, R00, R24, R27, R29, R30
E000, E00, E11, E31
