Whimsy Release Party Blog Hop


Happy Monday!

Welcome to our Whimsy Stamps Release Party Blog Hop to celebrate our new Digital Stamp Collection! All the new digital designs are now available for purchase and immediate download! If you are joining me from Crystal's blog, you are in the right place. If you've just stumbled onto our hop today and you'd like to party with us, you'll want to hop back over to Crissy's blog for the start of our release party hop!

To celebrate the new digital collection, all of the Whimsy Designers are sharing projects using these new images and sentiment sets! For my card, I've used the new image Hang In There by Crissy Armstrong along with the sentiment set Hang In There Sentiments from Raindrop Echo Designs.

I've created a Joy Fold card for this project. I've used new Green at Heart BG paper with some pink, razzleberry, and olive card stock. The image was printed out and colored with Copics and then I used Crystal Effects to make his shell shiny. I framed the image with Circle Nestabilities.  I've embellished with cherry blossoms, ribbons, sticky gems, hemp twine with a turtle charm, and the lace border punch. The sentiment was printed and then I used the Fancy Tags Nestabilities to frame it. 

This is how the card looks all folded  up and ready to mail out. The Joy Fold card are super easy and fun to make! Give one a try today with a new Whimsy Digital Stamp!

This card also fits the challenges at:
The Pink Elephant: Recipe Challenge (1 image, 2 dies, 3 of your favorite embellishments)
Stamp with Fun: Sketch
Stamptacular Sunday Challenges: Spots and Dots
Totally Gorjuss: Texture ( I used CE on the shell, ribbon, and twine)
Secret Crafter Saturday: Get Well
Dare U 2 Digi: Metal

To continue on our celebration hop, please head on over to Maddy's blog to see her creative project using these new images! And at the end of our hop you can visit the Whimsy home page for a chance to win some of these fun images and a gift certificate to shop in our store! Don't worry if you can't participate in the hop celebration today, you will have all week to join in the fun and then enter for a chance to win! The winner will be drawn after the hop closes on Friday, April 16th at Noon EST.

There's also a freebie sentiment set available for download on the home page as well! Thanks to Ann from Raindrop Echo Designs for sharing that with all of us!

Thanks for stopping by to celebrate with us today! We hope you enjoy our release party creations! Have a  great day!

Happy Stamping,

Paula said...

This hop is an education in itself. This joy fold looks super & his shell is something else. I'd love to do just what you suggest - both would be firsts for me, joy fold & digi, perhaps I should it make it threesome & add the copics too.
Thanks for such fun
