Whimsy Digi Release Party - June Challenge

Welcome to Digi Release Day at Whimsy Stamps!

Today we are releasing 14 new images, 3 new sentiment sets, and a brand new custom collection of signatures and watermarks! So lots to see over in the Whimsy Shop!

To celebrate our new release, we are throwing a release party with a blog hop and a new monthly challenge over on our Whimsy Inspirations Blog. Part of our team will celebrate with the hop and the rest of us will share some samples for the challenge. Lots of Whimsy eye candy to see!

The blog hop begins at Noon EST today and will start over on the Whimsy Inspirations Blog. There will be lots of fun creations to see using these new images as well as a prize to be won! Be sure to leave comments on all the DT blogs because one of the comments will be chosen randomly as our winner! The hop will run until Noon EST next Tuesday, June 8th.

The Whimsy Stamps challenge for June is Summer with the added option of bugs. Anyone is welcome to join in but to qualify for the prize, you must use a Whimsy Stamps image (rubber or digital) on your creation. You can also combine our challenge with other challenges. To play along and enter, please visit the Whimsy Inspirations Blog for more info! The challenge will run all month long and will end at Noon EST on June 30th. We hope you'll join in and show us your summer creations with a touch of Whimsy!

Today, I'm sharing a challenge sample with you using the new image Strawberry Fairy from the Meljen's Designs for Whimsy Stamps Digital Collection. Melissa has added 9 new images for this release, each with a fun fairy tale theme.

I've colored the image with Copics, some stickles for shimmer and white gel pen dots here and there. The papers are Cosmo Cricket and the edges have been stitched on the sewing machine. I've framed the image with Circle Nesties and embossed the white layer with the Swiss Dots CB folder. I've embellished with cherry blossoms, roses, ribbon, a button, sticky pearls, and hemp twine with a charm.

This card also fits the challenges at:
Secret Crafter: Buttons and Blooms
One Stop: Swirls and Pearls (pearls and swirls on the image)
Pile It On!: Eat Veggies (strawberry image, fruit is close to veggies right?!)
Everybody Art: Summer
My Time to Craft: Wild Things
Papertake Weekly: Fun Fun Fun
Copic Creations: Animals

Thanks for coming on by today! I hope you have a great day and will stop by Whimsy for a peek at all the wonderful new digital images!

Happy Stamping,
