Digital Stamp Collection Release Party

Hope you are all having fun with this Whimsy digital release party. The images are fabulous, aren't they?

Anyway, if you've arrived here from Janna's blog you are on track.

If you've landed here from anywhere else then you might want to start the release hop at the beginning; that's at Crissy's blog.

My card will be entered into a a couple of challenges and they are linked up at the bottom of the post.

I've used the wonderful 'Hang In There' image designed by Crissie Armstrong (it's so cute!) and one of the sentiments that Anne designed for the Gift Horse image. I glossed up the turtle's shell with 3d gloss.

The release hop will run from noon EST Monday April 12th (that's 5 p.m. in the UK) through until Friday 16th April at noon EST (again, 5 pm in the UK).


There is a fantastic Whimsy blog candy prize for all you hoppers to enter. The candy consists of:

a $15 gift certificate to the Whimsy Store

Crissy Armstrong's Digi "Pebbles the Cat"

Katie Sowa's Digi "Awww, So Tweet!"

Ann Vento's Sentiments "Mother's Day Sentiments"

Whimsy Digi "Princess Coach"

How fantastic is that!

Ann has also created a freebie sentiment set that blog hop participants can download

The new digital collection has exclusive designs from Crissy Armstrong, Katie Sowa, and Ann Vento as well as some others from Whimsy's previous rubber stamp collections. All will be available for download upon completion of purchase. Each download will contain a zip file with 3 versions of the image, a JPEG, TIFF, and PNG all at 300dpi resolution. Images can be flipped, rotated, or resized to fit project needs.

Okay, it's time carry on the hop. Head over to Deb's blog and don't forget to leave the DT a little comment on the way.

My card is entered into the following challenges:

Friday Sketchers - the sketch I followed.

Papercutz Challenge - use 3 patterned papers (I hope the embossed pattern on the centre panel counts)


Thanks for looking,

Sharon xx
