Who wants to save money on card making supplies? Who wants to get MORE for their craft dollar? Whimsy Stamps is launching a new product at the store - MONTHLY CARD KITS! Click HERE to check them out. The first two are Hallowe'en/Fall themed kits. The kits includes a rubber stamp, a Whimsy Shapeology metal die for die cutting, pre-stamped sentiments, card stock, designer paper AND embellishments! You save a TON of money by buying your supplies all in this one kit! This is practically giving the products away! If you were to purchase the die, the stamp and the designer paper separately, you would easily pay about 28.50. BUT in this kit, you will get all three of those products PLUS the added embellishments and pre-stamped sentiments AND PAY LESS FOR IT! The kit is only 23.99! So right off the top you save 4.51 AND you get the added papers and embellishments PLUS an instruction sheet to make your cards! Getting these kits is a no-brainer. You don't want to miss out, because there are a limited amount of kits and once they're gone, they're gone. Get them while you can - get them as gifts for your fellow card makers too! What an amazing new product! Way to go Whimsy Stamps!!
Check out THIS VIDEO where Vicki demonstrates the first monthly card kits and shows you what you can make with it.

Just keeping you up to date with the latest images being released at Whimsy as of today. Get ready for Christmas now with some cute Christmas images! Here are the three I have contributed to the fresh line-up at Whimsy:
Here's my hand-coloured version of Christmas Bunny Stockings. I used Copic markers:
I will use it on a card for sure. I just love the little scamp at the end who decided to explore the stocking head-first. He must be the artist. ;-)
Hope you have a blessed day today!

Another b-day card to share today. This image is called, "Good Pony," I coloured it with Copics awhile ago (sorry, no colour list with this one) and finally got around to using it on a card.
Here is a close-up:
I hope you are all getting crafty lately! It is therapy for the soul.

Hope you are enjoying Spring! Yay that it is finally here!
I have an oldie but a goodie for you today - "Lend Me Your Ear," a rubber image I did awhile back.
This is stamped on water colour paper and coloured with good ol' fashioned water colour paints!
Image can be found HERE.
Thanks for stopping by! Be Blessed!

Hi Peeps! Good news! Whimsy is making it easier for shoppers on their website! They are gradually changing their black and white image displays to coloured versions of each stamp. It will be easier for you to envision the possibilities when you see the way colour brings them to life. The colour is also a suggestion as well, so that you can either copy the same colours you see, or, use them as a jumping off point for your own colour decisions. I have just begun the task of colouring all 148 of my images for them, and I wanted to show you some of what I have so far. These are three of my newly released images found at Whimsy HERE.
There is also a blog hop going on right now, and if you get this message on time (before noon on Jan 16, EST) you still have a chance to do the hop and get yourself entered into the draw for prizes! Just go HERE to start hopping. Thanks for visiting today!

Edited to add: The blog hop is on until Monday Dec 22 at noon EST.
To thank you for taking time out of this busy season just to do this hop with us, I'll be offering up three digi's (winner's choice) from my digital collection of images at Whimsy Stamps to one commentor. All you have to do to be eligible is leave a comment on this post. Denise has a prize handy too, so don't forget to visit the last stop as well!
Today the Whimsy DT members (plus Yours Truly) are hosting a friendship hop in honor of a special member of the Whimsy Stamps family, Simonne Clay. Simonne has been a fixture here at Whimsy for many years and we all just wanted to show our appreciation for all that she does for each of us and for sharing her amazing talent as an illustrator. Simmone has gone above and beyond to show support for Whimsy and to help out fellow members of the Whimsy team. Her presence will be missed by many of us here at Whimsy, but we wish her all the best in her new ventures. Thank you Simmone, for brightening up my life personally and for giving so much to our Whimsy Team! I will miss you!
I'll be sending this card to Simmone. I used, "Special Delivery Pup", one of my older rubber images. I stamped it on water colour paper and painted it with water colour paints. Die cuts are "Elegant Flourishes". Sentiments also from Whimsy.
The heart is embossed but it was a "repurposed" piece from a store-bought card! I thought it went nicely with the rest of the card.
Had to refrain from any sort of embellishing that would fatten up this card as it has to fly overseas. So no pearls, flowers, lace, pop-ups, charms or distressed edges. I kept all the embellishing flat. I'm hoping it works, even without all the extras!!
Be sure to pop on over to Denise's blog now, the last blog on the stop. Here is your blog list for your convenience:
Crissy Armstrong (Yours Truly!)
Thanks for stopping by!!
