Whimsy Release Party
Hello and welcome to our new release party!!!
Today is new release day over at Whimsy Stamps and we are celebrating with a blog hop! Each of the Whimsy Designers will be sharing their creations using the new carousel horses Party Pony and Proud to Be and some will accent with our new sentiment set Ticket Sentiments! We hope you'll hop with us and take a look at these beautiful new stamps!
If you are joining me from Chris's blog you are in the right place, but if you've just stumbled upon our hop today, you'll want to hop back over to Crissy's blog so you don't miss out on any of the eye candy or prize chances along the way!
My creation today uses the new stamp Proud to Be and a sentiment from the ticket set. I love both of these new stamps! Proud to Be will make a great 4th of July or just for a fun celebration image and these new ticket sentiments are perfect for all occasions.
Sketch Saturday, but I did move the embellishments a tad to fit my design. The papers are a vintage distressed My Minds Eye with rustic stars on them. I've colored my image with Copics and then cut him out and glued him to an embossed piece of cream card stock. All of the papers have been stitched on the sewing machine and then distressed a bit with tearing and sponging on ink. I've embellished with star brads, linen ribbon and a grommet, a charm and twine, roses and Prima flowers. I finished off with the dream ticket and some sticky gem stars. I also sprayed my papers with Glimmer Mist, but it's hard to see in the photo.
This card also fits some challenges today...
Cupcake Craft: blooming and charming
Just Us Girls: patriotic colors
Little Red Wagon: Brads
Cooking it Up with Katie: Colors of a Charming Man
The next stop on our hop today is Lisa's blog! Hop on over and check out her fabulous creation!
Be sure to leave comments while hopping and link up in the linky features along the way as you just might be a lucky winner! Our hop will continue through the week, so you have plenty of time to join in the fun. The hop ends at Noon EST on Friday, May 21st and the winners of the prizes will be announced later that day. Rowena and Stacey will be offering up both of the new carousel horse sets and Ann and Bev will have some candy which will include the new Ticket Sentiment Set. So lots to see and prizes to be won!
Whimsy also has our May Challenge going on right now. There is a fabulous digital prize pack up for grabs and challenge run through the end of the month, so there is still plenty of time to enter. For me details and to join in the fun CLICK HERE!
