Whimsy Stamps July Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Whimsy Stamps July rubber release BLOG HOP!

The Whimsy July rubber release happened last week on July 13th, but today we are hosting our blog hop to showcase the 9 fabulous new rubber stamps and 2 new Shapeology metal dies now available at Whimsy Stamps! These new goodies are available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favorites. We also have our wonderful special guests joining us for this hop - Deb Routledge, Elaine Hughes, Niki Estes and Zoe McGrath.

The Whimsy Stamps DT have been showcasing these fabulous stamps for the past 6 days, so if you missed them be sure to hop on over to the Whimsy Inspirations Blog for some more inspiration!

Here is a full list of the wonderful July release rubber stamps and dies:

5 stamps from Kenny K
Boogie Down ~ Holla Back Girl ~ Hot Weave ~ Spy Chick ~ Victory Kid

4 stamps/sets from Raindrop Echo Designs
A Touch of Elegance ~ Adventure Mini Postage Stamps ~ Vintage Bottle Labels ~ Vintage Transportation

2 dies/sets from Raindrop Echo Designs
Dress Form Die (coordinates with ‘A Touch of Elegance’ stamp set) ~ Elegant Flourishes

If you would like to hop along with us today, please CLICK HERE to return to the beginning of the hop at Lori’s blog.  The hop starts today (Wednesday July 20th at noon EST) and ends on Wednesday July 27th at noon EST.

For this hop we have 6 different prize draws! We have one grand prize draw where one lucky hopper will win a selection of new release stamps for hopping along with us. We also have 5 mini candy stops throughout the hop where you can enter to win a new release stamp!

For my card today, I have used the new stamp set A Touch of Elegance along with the new Dress Form Die and then also the Elegant Flourishes Die set. Each of these products were designed by Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs.

As you can see I went for a more vintage feel on this card to fit the style of the images. I've used some Pink Paislee Papers and stitched the edges on the sewing machine. The images were all stamped with brown ink - no Copics used on this one! I've embellished with flowers, ribbon, a hat pin, the dress die, and then some flourish accents using the Elegant Flourishes Die set.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today. The next stop on the hop is the super talented Minna's blog. Be sure to pop over and see what she has for you today. And then remember to leave comments and enter for your chance to win the prizes on offer along the hop too!

Finally, here is a complete blog hop list in hopping order:

Thank you so much for hopping with us today and we hope you enjoy all of the DT creations!

KennyK Blog Hop!

Good Morning Kenny K Fans, 

Today we're celebrating the 1st year Anniversary of the Kenny K Challenge blog with a Blog Hop and 8 Fabulous New releases from Kenny K called the Showbiz Celebrities that are now available at Kenny K Downloads.
The Kenny K Krafty Girlz have all created some fantastic cards for you showcasing these new images. You won't want to miss the eye candy on this hop!
If you'd like to participate in the Kenny K 1st Year Anniversary blog hop and you didn't arrive here from Bettina's Blog, then click here to start at the beginning on Donna's Blog.
The Blog hop starts today and runs until July 23rd at midnight UK time.
On your way around the Hop, some of the Krafty Girlz will be offering up a candy of their own as a small token of thanks for stopping by! 

For my Blog Hop Creation I used the new digital image Monty Haul.

I've kept this on the more clean and simple style to fit a masculine card. The image was colored with copics and then paired with some BG Oliver papers. I tried to color Monty's suit coat to match these papers. I've embellished with twine, buttons, brads, and a sentiment from the Party Mini Letter Seals available at Whimsy Stamps.

I would like to offer up a surprise pack of some KennyK rubber stamps on behalf of Whimsy Stamps! One lucky winner will receive 6 KennyK for Whimsy rubber stamps including one new stamp to be released in July! To enter, please leave your name and blog link in the linky feature below (all the way at the bottom of this post) by midnight UK time on July 23rd. Good luck!
