Whimsy Prints Blog Hop

Hi everyone and welcome to the Whimsy Prints BLOG HOP!

In October, Whimsy Stamps announced the release of a BRAND NEW Whimsy Stamps product line - the Whimsy Prints Collection. The Whimsy Prints Collection are beautiful sets of hand-colored images which have been digitally reproduced, printed, and die-cut into various shapes. Whimsy Prints are printed on 100lb premium coated paper and professionally die-cut leaving smooth edges. Each pack contains 12 die-cut prints (3 sets of 4 images).

The Crissy Armstrong prints are lovingly hand-colored by Crissy Armstrong herself:

The Elisabeth Bell prints have been hand-colored by our talented Senior Designer Simonne Clay:


Whimsy Prints Collection are very straight forward and easy to use. They can be attached directly to your project with glue or double sided tape. Use them as is or cut to fit the needs of your project. One of the benefits of using Whimsy Prints is to cut back on the amount of time needed to hand color images. To summarize, it is a great way to make quick projects when time is of the essence! These are also wonderful for beginner crafters and kid projects.

If you joined us for our last 2 releases, you may have seen some of the beautiful projects our DT and Special Guests have created using these prints.

For my prints project, I used the Holiday Wishes set and the square Santa and Teddy die cut. I have used all 3 from the pack and did a decoupaged 3D image.


The base of my card is Stampin' Up! chocolate card stock with vanilla layered with My Minds Eye Lost and Found Christmas papers. I have distressed the edges with scissors. The image was glue using glue dots to give the 3D effect. I also add some stickles for glittery accents. I've embellished with flowers, ribbons, and the Star Spangled Tag Die, Snowflake Border Die, and Vines Die all from Whimsy.

Here is a close up of the decoupaged effect...
