Whimsy Stamps Blog Hop

This blog hop is now over. CLICK HERE to see the winner of the blog hop candy!


Good Sunday Morning!

Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend! It's an exciting weekend for Whimsy Stamps! We are hosting a blog hop today that will run until Thursday, October 8th at noon EST. Myself and the talented Whimsy Stamps Design Team have a bunch of fun projects to share which all use the new stamps to be release tomorrow, Monday, October 5th! We have 3 new Animals Collection stamps, 2 new Kids Collections stamps, and 2 new sentiment sets!


If you are just joining me, you'll want to hop back over to Vicki's Blog for the start of the hop! As you travel through the hop you will be treated to some sneak peeks at the new release as well as having a chance to win a special new release prize! We hope you'll like what you see!

My card uses the new Whimsy Cat and Fish stamp! This little kitty sure is up to no good, poor little fish! I've colored my image with Copics and added a bit of white gel pen highlights and some Spica glitter highlights too. I've also heat embossed the fish bowl to create the clear glass effect.

My papers are SU! retired Parisian Breeze designer prints and some chocolate and kraft cardstock. I've used the sketch from CRAFT Challenge and embellished with jumbo brads, satin ribbon, Prima flowers and buttons with hemp twine. My sentiment is from the new Ruff Day sentiment set!

After you leave here, you'll want to hop on over to Stacey's Blog and see what fun creation she has in store for you! Be sure to leave comments on ALL the DT blog hop posts for your chance at the grand prize blog hop candy! Some of the DT will also be drawing random winners, from comments left on their blogs, to receive some mystery candy.

The blog hop will run from now until Thursday, October 8th at noon EST, at that time a mystery DT member will choose and announce one lucky winner from the comments left on her blog! So be sure to show everyone some love! The lucky random winner will receive the new Animals Collection stamps and the matching sentiment set!
And, you can purchase these guys along with the rest of the new releases at 12:00am EST, Monday October 5th! Thanks for joining in our hop, we hope you have fun along the way! Happy stamping! :)

This reminds me of my cat, Shadow, who is no longer with us. We came home one day to find him doing just this in our fish aquarium.

At the time, it wasn't funny but now it is. He was having a good ol time and thankfully no fish were harmed.

Cool stamp!!
