Whimsy Stamps October Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Whimsy Stamps October digi release blog hop!!!! If you are taking part in the blog hop you should have arrived at my lil blog from Anita’s blog.

Before I get on with the blog hop I would like to let you know that all digis in the Whimsy Stamps store are being sold with 50% off for today only in celebration of World Cardmaking Day. How fab is that!!!


Now, back to the hop! We have lots of gorgeous new images to share with you today created by Crissy Armstrong, Raindrop Echo Designs, Natalie-Mooncookie, Kathy Kittmer and Lia Stampz. All Whimsy Stamps digital images are 300dpi for high print quality.You can re-size, flip, or rotate to fit your own project. To find all of today's new releases please visit the Whimsy Stamps Store.


Onto my DT piece, I have altered a blank kraft gift bag and tag. My image is by Chrissy Armstrong and called Christmas Cheer Deer. He is available to purchase here. Isn't he a cutie, he was a joy to colour. My tag has a Raindrop Echo sentiment on it, available to purchase as part of the Trimming the Tree set here. I love Ann's sentiments, so versatile and beautiful. I have added some 'jingle bells' to the tag for a bit of fun...


Supplies:
Kraft gift bag & tag - Papermania
Image - Christmas Cheer Deer by Chrissy Armstrong from Whimsy Stamps coloured with Promarkers
Papers - North Country by Prima
Buttons - Dovecraft

So onto the details of the HOP! Don't forget to leave comments along the way as there are 2 mystery DT Members who will each be choosing a winner from the comments left on their hop posts! These winners will each win a Whimsy digi image of their choice. The Grand Prize winner of the hop will be chosen from the very last stop, which is Pop’s blog. This winner will receive 5 digital stamps of their choice from Whimsy and will also get a chance to use those new digital images as a guest designer for Whimsy for the entire month of October.


The hop will run for 1 week and end on Saturday 8th October at 12 Noon EST (5pm GMT), when the lucky winners will be announced on the Whimsy Inspirations blog.

  11. This is awesome! What a great idea. Totally wonderful. If I got a gift 'wrapped' in this I wouldn't care what was inside because I would be too busy drooling over the 'wrapping'
