New Whimsy Release Celebration


Happy Wednesday and Happy Whimsy Digi Release Day!

Welcome to our Whimsy Stamps new release celebration as we add 6 more images and 9 more sentiment sets to our Digital Stamp Collection! The Whimsy design team has been working really hard these last few days to share sneak peeks and create projects for our celebration today! We hope you've enjoyed what you've seen so far! And we hope you will take a few minutes to hop with us today and then stop over at our Whimsy Inspirations Blog and join in our new monthly challenge! There are prizes to be won and fun to be had during both the hop and challenge!

My blog is the first stop on our hop today and I've got a couple of cards to share with you. Both of my cards use images from our new artist, Melissa Jenkins, and her collection, Meljen's Designs! Meljen's Designs for Whimsy Stamps will be a fairytale collection of whimsical and fun digital designs, each created in Melissa's signature style!

Aren't these little piggies the cutest ever! These are Meljen's Designs Three Pigs. I had so much fun coloring them and I love that I could print them out in the size that fit my project. I've created a card using some Cosmo Cricket papers in some bright and cheerful colors to match this fun image. I've stitched the edges on the sewing machine and used an old sketch from Friday Sketchers for my layout. To finish off this card I added some buttons and hemp twine, a bit of Stickles for shimmer, and then a sentiment from the new Three Pigs Sentiments created by Raindrop Echo Designs to coordinate with this digital image.

This card also fits the challenges at:
Stamp with Fun: Friends
Secret Crafter: Friendship
Pile It On!: Boyish Colors
A Spoon Full of Sugar: Furry Friends

So that's my blog hop creation, hope it made you smile! Next I will share my challenge creation card, but before I get to that, I do want to give you the details for our next stop on the hop in case you are in a hurry to get hopping today!  Our hop is open until Tuesday, May 11th at Noon EST. We will draw one random winner from one of the Whimsy DT member blogs to receive a $25.00 gift certificate to our shop!  And there will also be a couple of mystery candies drawn from the DT blogs as well! So be sure to leave those comments on all the Whimsy Designers blogs! The next stop on the hop today is LISA! Happy Hopping!

Now on to my a card using the new Riding Hood image from Meljen's Designs at Whimsy Stamps. She's a darling and sweet image that was also lots of fun to color.  I made this card to fit our Monthly Whimsy Challenge! This month the challenge is to use this recipe to create a project:

Markers, Pretty Papers, Flowers, and a Whimsy Image (rubber or digital)

One lucky participant will win 5 digital stamps of her choice from our Whimsy Stamps Digital Collection! So we hope you will join in the fun and share some Whimsy with us today! The challenge will end on May 31st at Noon EST.

I've gone with a red and pink color combo and used some Cosmo Cricket papers and more stitching on the paper edges. I also distressed the edges on this card. The image was colored with Copics and highlighted with some Stickles. I've embellished with cherry blossoms and roses, both available at Whimsy Stamps, and some ribbons.

Thanks again for stopping by today! We hope you enjoyed our new release party hop and challenge! You can see all sorts of wonderful samples using these new images and sentiments along the hop and over at the Whimsy Inspirations Blog! Have a great day!

Happy Stamping,
