Crazy Whimsical Blog Hop!!

Today Whimsy Stamps is combining forces with One Crazy Stamper to bring you a Crazy Whimsical  blog hop filled with lots of inspiration and some PRIZES!!

Whimsy Stamps is a family owned rubber stamp company located in the United States. We carry a large variety of exclusive rubber and digital stamps, custom rubber and digital designs, our Shapeology metal crafting dies, and many different crafting embellishments. We have new releases each month for both rubber stamps and dies as well as new digital images. Hop by the shop and see what's new!
One Crazy Stamper is a fantastic Canadian crafting store with an online site as well as a brick and mortar store located in Bolton, Ontario! One Crazy Stamper has the latest products you are looking for! Be sure to check out the One Crazy Stamper shop as well as the OCS blog for your daily inspiration.

Please join our hop featuring projects from the Whimsy and One Crazy Stamper Design Teams.   Be sure to hop around from blog to blog and leave a comment at each stop, because some lucky random commenters are going to win some crafty goodies!!!

For this hop I received this sweet image from Whimsy Stamps by artist Sylvia Zet of Wee  Stamps, entitled "Bird Swing".  I stamped the image with London Fog Memento Ink on Copic Xpress It blending paper, and then colored it with my Copic Sketch Markers.  Using a Copic multiliner, I outlined the birds in black, and also used a silver pen on the frame of the swing.  I had just received the Japanese Garden Lace Oval die by Cheery Lynn from One Crazy Stamper and was looking for any excuse to use it soooooo......here it is - love, love, love it!!!  And the bonus is that the branch embellishments are included in the center of the oval die!!  If you have never used these gorgeous dies you should order a few, and make sure to also order the Metal Cutting plate, which makes cutting the dies so easy and quick!!  I very carefully cut the image to fit the inside of the oval frame, then layered pattern paper from Lily Bee Designs Head Over Heels Tiny Tablet, and cardstock for the front of the card.  The ribbon, sentiment and pearls were from my stash.


Here is the order of the hop! Happy Hopping!
