Blog Hop - Whimsy Stamps and Make it Crafty

I do apologize in advance for this poorly written post with the description of my card,  but I am not home at the time of writing this and did not think to bring my card along with the details.  I will edit this as soon as I return home late Sunday evening.   In the meantime, there's plenty of fabulous hopping for you to do.

Whimsy Stamps & Make it Crafty have come together to create a fun Urban Themed digi collection! Ann Vento has whipped up her magic and designed an incredible collection of funky wall sayings, city landscapes and of course a range of super cool street signs.Check out the Sentiments collection HERE.  Make it Crafty is trying something new offering all the different elements for you to build your own urban backdrop.Check out the Urban Street Collection HERE Then of course, what better characters to incorporate into such a scene than the fabulous KennyK rubber stamps available from Whimsy Stamps! Our incredibly talented Design Teams have had a blast playing with all the different elements to bring you LOTS of inspiration!

We have broken it in to TWO HOPS
HOP A Starts Here & HOP B Starts HERE! There will be a winner for EACH HOP and if you hop your way through BOTH, you’ll go in the draw for the GRAND PRIZE TOO! HOP A & B Winners will each receive a $15 voucher from both Whimsy Stamps and Make it Crafty GRAND WINNER will win our full Urban Digital Collection 4 Digi Sentiment sets by Ann Vento & the Urban Elements Collection from Make it Crafty You are currently on HOP B and should have arrived from Carole's blog.


 
For my card, I used the Kenny K Alice in Chains stamp from Whimsy and used Copics to do all the colouring. The sentiment is from Ann Vento's Cityscape collection. After colouring it, I placed the Make It Crafty Urban Street Collection brick scene behind a piece of Stampin Up designer paper, distressed the edges and added some walnut stain. I stamped the image, cut her out and stuck her down! The chipboard embellishments are also from Make it Crafty.
Your next stop on HOP B is Cheryl, but before you go make sure you leave a comment below! You have until August 21st 8PM Australian QLD time to make your way through the hops! Be there... or be square! J
