Whimsy July Blog Hop

Hello everyone and happy July!!

Since it's the first of the month it is time for our Digital Stamp Release and Blog hop over at Whimsy Stamps. We have several new gorgeous images to show you from Moon Cookie Gallery, Stamp Art Designs, Crissy Armstrong and a few recently released ones by Meljens too. I hope you'll hop with us to see all the amazing creations by the Design Team.

If you arrived here from Sheri's blog you are in the right place, if not you will want to to go Therese's blog to start hopping. Don't forget to leave comments along the way for some chances at winning. There will be 2 random blogs that will draw one winner each from the comments left, and then at the end of the hop one commenter will win 5 of these newly released digis and will have a chance at showcasing them as a guest designer for the month of July.

For my card I used an image by Whimsy's Moon Cookie Gallery "Sparkle Butterfly". It has been colored with copic markers.

The sketch was inspired by a card from the new Stampin Up catalog. I just fell in love with it and thought it was perfect to showcase this beautiful butterfly.



Products used:
Stamps: digi - sparkle butterfly (whimsy stamps), sentiment - crafter's companion "souffle"
Papers: kraft, celery, choc. chop, celery prints (all stampin up)
Tools and Accessories: copic markers, button (SU), hemp twine, nestabilites, paper piercing tool kit, wire



I love how this card turned out, I just love these colors together!

Now your next stop on this hop is Tine's blog. And don't forget to leave comments. If you get lost along the way simply go to the inspiration blog for the complete list of stops.There you will also find several more creative ideas made with the new released digis from team A of the Whimsy digital team.

I'd like to enter my card to the following challenges:
And that is all for today. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and enjoy the rest of the hop!
