Whimsy Stamps Digi Release Blog Hop

Hi again ! This is my 3rd and final post of the day! We are celebrating a new digital release over at Whimsy stamps and that means we're having a blog hop!!

If you arrived here from Dawn's fabulous blog then you are in the right place. If not and would like to see all the fabulous whimsy creations you will want to go to the Whimsy Stamps Inspirations Blog to start hopping.

Don't forget to leave comments along the way as there are going to be 2 mystery blogs which will have a prize of a digital stamp that the winners get to choose. And then there will also be a grand prize of 5 digis of winner's choice. The grand prize winner will also get the chance to use those new digital images as a guest designer for Whimsy for the entire month of February.


For my card today I used two new cuties from the Crissy Armstrong collection, "Shy Sarah" and "Can I kiss you?" Aren't they just adorable!!! These are available as single images, but can also be purchased as a set. The set also includes a cute bench.

I colored the image with derwent coloursoft pencils and baby oil, and copic markers for the skin. Did lots of distressing along the edges and then sewed with my janome sew mini.
I used papers from Bo Bunny and card stock is stampin up. Embellished with some prima flowers, sticky pearls, button and charm, and then some ribbon and thread. The flourishes were done with a tim holtz sizzix die. I computer generated the sentiment and, believe me, all day long I had that "cinderella song" on my mind. I love the disney princess movies!


Some challenges I'd like to enter my card to:
Your next stop on the hop is Heike's amazing blog. Remember to leave comments for a chance at winning at two mystery blogs! You have a whole week to hop along, the hop ends at noon EST on February 8th.

I am not sure how much blogging I'll get done the next few days, but I will be busy making cards. If you love whimsy stamps be sure to check back here on friday for a sneak peek of a brand new whimsy rubber stamp to be released later this month!

Enjoy the rest of your week!
