Whimsy Goes Digital!

Morning All!

Today, I have some exciting news! First, Whimsy Stamps is sponsoring the challenge over at Creative Card Crew! The theme for the challenge is weddings. There are beautiful samples created by the design team for inspiration and they have kindly asked me to be a guest designer, which of course, I was very happy to do. Thanks ladies!

My other bit of exciting news is that Whimsy Stamps will be launching a new venture into the digital world of images! Have no fear, we have NO plans to change our Animals and Kids Collections, they will remain and continue as rubber stamps. But, as many new digital images are popping up all over, we thought it would be fun to add a new digital collection of images to our shop as well.

These new digital images will be available for purchase on our site very soon. Once purchased, you will receive an email containing a JPEG format of the image file which can be downloaded and printed in a variety of sizes to fit your crafting needs!

The first image in our digital line is called Wedding Cake and Kisses and here is the card I made for the challenge at Creative Card Crew using this image.

This new digital image was actually inspired by my brother and his wife at their wedding having the first bite of wedding cake! I have printed out the image and colored it with Copics and also added some glitter glue to make the wedding dress sparkle. It's a very easy image to work with and I think you could just leave it black and white also.

The papers are some from a pack I actually picked up at WalMart of all places. I had no idea they had a collection of scrap booking and stamping supplies! I used black and white card stock from SU! and a layer of printed paper with a layer of designer vellum over it. I kept this card simple and only embellished with rhinestone brads, ribbon, paper roses for a pop of color, and a love charm.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you'll head on over to Creative Card Crew and join in the challenge! Happy stamping! :)
