Whimsey Stamps Blog Hop + Stamp Something Challenge :-)

Woo Hoo !! I was thrilled when Denise asked me to be a Guest Designer on the blog hop for the new release of Meljen Designs Rubber Stamps from Whimsey Stamps

I am combining this hop with my DT card for the Stamp Something Challenge too ,, our theme this week is

PUNCH SOMETHING !! (am keeping my mouth firmly closed here lol)

If you arrived here from the fabulously talented Ann Vanto's blog then you're going in thr right direction ,, if not then you will need to go back to the beginning on Chris Olsen's fantastic blog :-)




I was given this GORGEOUS Holly Beary Fairy stamp to use ,,,, isn't this fab !! I do love all Melissa's designs tho ,, such a talented designer !! I just hope she likes my effort !! :-)




I decided to make an easel card and gift box. I coloured the image with Copics and used My Minds Eye Christmas paper pack. I inked the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink and added star dust stickles here and there :-) I used my new EK Success border punch and the Poinsettia flowers are from Prima . I also added glossy accents to the berries :-)



I used the same MME papers for the box, cut out the tag on my Cricut , inked the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink. I stamped the image, coloured her then cut her out and fixed her onto the tag with pop dots. The sentiment is from Hero Arts



I hope you're enjoying the hop :-) Some fab new stamps eh !! well done Melissa and Whimsey stamps :-)

From here you need to hop on over to the super talented Marley Van der Heljden
