Today I have a special card to share which is also part of a special blog hop! Whimsy Stamps has joined our Senior Designer Erin in her endeavor to bring some smiles and warm wishes to Bella Tucker. You can read all about the campaign HERE on Erin's blog. Each Tuesday for the next 4 weeks there will be little mini blog hops and prizes to be won all in an effort to help send some smiles to Bella! We hope you will join us and share the Wishes for Bella badge on your blog and then make and send a card to Bella.
I've used some SU! papers and designer prints and a lace doily with my circle Nesties. I also embossed the layer behind the image. The image was colored with Copics and then cut out and popped up with foam tape. I've embellished with sticky pearls, lots of flowers, and two "Happy Mail" Ticket sentiments from Whimsy Stamps.
I hope you'll join our hop and cause to help Bella! Thanks for visiting today. Happy Stamping!

Happy Saturday! Sorry I missed our featured stamper post last week, I got so busy that I totally forgot! I hope to make up for it today by sharing a couple featured stampers with you!
First we have Noela! Noela's husband Steven recently emailed me with a card Noela created using Shy Ann from our Mythical Rubber Stamp Collection. I was touched that he cared so much about Noela and her design that he wanted me to see. Now that's one wonderful hubby! And Noela's card is beautiful and shiny and all things girlie!
Next we have Deb of Deb's Creations! Deb is also one of our Whimsy Stamps retailers and the owner of Deb's Creations. She carries a huge variety of crafty goodies in her online shop based in Australia!
Deb has created these two fun cards using 2 of Whimsy's very first rubber stamps....
We hope you have a wonderful and maybe even whimsical weekend! If you would like to be a featured stamper here at Whimsy, please contact us to share your Whimsy Stamps creations!

For this card I used the Woodland Princess...Isn't she beautiful...I used lots of pearls on this, I loved adding pearls to her dress and her necklace. To finish it off I used flourish pearls on the bottom.
I don't like pearls do I??? LOL...For this creation I used this adorable Princess Mouse. When I think of princesses I think Pink. I couldn't get enough pink on this card!!! For both of my creations I shared today I used Basic Grey Paper. One of my all time favs....
Hope you enjoy and thanks so much for popping over today!!! Everyone have a GREAT Thursday!

I would like to share a card I made using a Whimsy Digital image from the Meljen's Digital Collection called Gruffy Little Gnome. The sentiment is from Ticket Sentiments designed by Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs for Whimsy. I seldom do cards for men but I needed a Thinking of you or Get Well card for an older gentleman at our church who has been very ill and in out of the hospital. I thought this image was so darling and would put a smile on his face.
For my layout, I used the Midnight Madness sketch challenge for this week which I flipped. The papers are from Bo Bunny. The image is colored with Prisma Color pencils and gamsol and sparkle is added to the hat. For the ovals along the thin strip I added sewing and buttons. You can see it better if you click on the photo for a close up.
Since it is a manly card, I used the Labels Eight Spellbinders and distressed the edges. For the sentiment, there is a blank ticket in the Ticket sentiments set where hand wrote the word Sorry.
Stamps: Gruffy Little Gnome and Ticket Sentiments
Paper: Bo Bunny designer paper
Accessories: MS punch, bayou blue grosgrain ribbon, black grosgrain ribbon (3/4 inch wide), sewing machine, silver baubles, buttons from stash, copper brads, label eight die from spellbinders.
Here is yet another image using one of the Meljen's Design's digital images, Happy Little Gnome that I created last week. I used the Truly Scrumptious Sketch (Whimsy is the sponsor for two weeks, this is the last week for this particular challenge).
Stamps: Meljen's Design's digital images, Happy Little Gnome, Ticket Sentiments designed by Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs for Whimsy
Paper: Basic Grey- Origins and Marakech
Accessories: White crocheted lace, prisma pencils, gamsol, heart charm, silver baubles, distressed stripes spellbinders, soft swirls, distresser, Standard Circle Nestabilities.
I hope you enjoyed my creations. Thanks for stopping by today!

Welcome to another featured stamper post here at Whimsy Stamps! It's always fun to surf around blog land looking for new creations and today we have one using the digital freebie designed by Crissy Armstrong in an effort to help share some smiles with our DT member Lisa's sister who is dying of lung cancer. This image is called Beach Baby Jayme and is available for free download on the Whimsy Shop page.
Marion's blog, Cards by Me, is filled with wonderful creations in lots of various styles. She wanted to help bring a smile to Jayme's face and so has created this fun and fabulous card....I have to say, I just love the sentiment!
Fantastic card Marion, one I'm sure will make Jayme giggle! To read more about this card, please click HERE.
And if you would like to help Lisa in her RAK request for her sister, please check out her post HERE.
Have a great weekend!

Have you gotten a chance to check out the new releases from Tuesday already? If not, I have a creation to share with you using one of Meljen's Designs newest images at Whimsy Stamps. The image on my card is called Gruffy Little Gnome. I thought this image was perfect for a boy's card. I also thought it would be funny to pair him up with this "good times" sentiment from the new Ticket Sentiments.
Remember, you still have a chance to join in on the new release blog hop (click here to go to the post to start the hop) and to join in on the monthly challenge (click here to see the challenge post).
See you back here soon!

Yesterday Whimsy Stamps added 14 images and 3 sentiment sets to our Digital Stamp Collection. I thought it would be fun to share some samples using the images from the Meljen's Designs for Whimsy Stamps Collection. Melissa added 9 new fairytale themed images to her collection with this new June release. Hope you like them!
