Whimsy Stamps July Release Blog Hop

Happy Monday All!

And welcome to our Whimsy Stamps new release blog hop! It's an exciting day at Whimsy and we hope you will enjoy this fun tour of blogs and all the beautiful creations using the new rubber stamps released today! There are 6 new rubber stamps....3 image stamps designed by Crissy Armstrong and 3 sentiment sets designed by Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs.

The hop began at Noon EST today over on Senior Designer Chris's blog. If you are just joining me now, you'll want to hop back over to her blog and start the hop there. If you've been hopping along and just joined me from Crissy's blog, then you are in the right place!

Today I've used the new stamp Jelly Bean designed by Crissy and I've used him for a baby card. He's such an adorable image that he will work for lots of things, but I was in the mood to create something different.

I started with some BG Lily Kate papers in these soft blues, yellows, and greens. I've stitched all the edges on the sewing machine and then used a MS border punch on the middle layer. I colored Jelly Bean with Copics and then cut him out. He's layered on a white and blue Circle Nestie frame that has also been embossed with the Swiss Dots folder. I've embellished with lace, gingham ribbon, flowers, brads, a baby shoe charm, and some Stickle accents. The sentiments are also from Whimsy Stamps, using the Ticket Sentiments and Oval Snippets.

This card also fits the challenges at:
BasicGrey Challenges: Gingham
Scrap, Stamp, Doodle: Animals
Fussy and Fancy: Stitches, Scallops, Sparkle
Totally Papercrafts: Recipe
Just Add Ink: Embossing
Paper Romance: Stitching
CRAFT Challenge: babies/children

Thanks for coming on by today! The next stop on our hop is our Senior Designer Ann. Please hop to see what she has to share with you today. I know she won't disappoint you!

There will be one grand prize on offer at the end of the hop which includes a chance to win all 6 of these new release stamps! And all you need to do is hop, leave some love for the designers, and then leave your name and blog link in the linky feature at the end of the hop! Good luck to all who join in!

If you can't do all the hopping today, no worries! This hop will be open until Monday, July 26th at Noon EST. The winner will be drawn and announced sometime on Monday afternoon or on Tuesday next week.

Have a wonderful day and a super week!

Happy Stamping,
