Hello Everyone, Today is the day for the Whimsy Stamps "A Spin on the Merry Go Round" Hop. I am VERY excited because this is my first Hop with this AWESOME design team as a Whimsy Designer. What a wonderful opportunity to use these awesome stamps and work with this exceptionally talented team. Thanks for this opportunity Denise!! You should see the new releases!!
If you did not come here from Sharon's Blog you will want to start at Bev's Blog so you don't miss anything along the way. I want to show you a card I made with the NEW STAMP called Spring Step from the Crissy Armstrong Collection. This stamp also comes with two accessories!! This image is just SOOO beautiful!!! I just loved water coloring, cutting it out and popping it up on dimensionals!! Unfortunately my photo makes the bow look blue but it is purple.



The dp is from Basic Grey Wisteria and from some bigger scraps in my scrap bin. I also added some dimension horse shoe stickers, small prima roses, and Zva Creative pearls. The sentiment is from Whimsy's Oval Snippets.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Spring Stepping from Whimsy, Whimsical Oval Snippets
Paper: Basic Grey Wisteria, purple Bazill
Accessories: ZVA Creative Pearls, Label 3 spellbinders, oval spellbinders, and lattice spellbinders, prima roses, purple ribbon, Victoria Embossing Folder
Challenges: Stamp with Fun- Spring, Incy Wincy-Horse, Ooh La la Creations- anything goes, Lexis- Birthdays, Cupcake Craft- Flower Power, My Time to Craft- Kids Cards (birthday card for my niece), Stamp Scrap & Doodle - Open Challenge, Creative Card Crew: Celebrations, Going Grey with Scrap Creations- Basic Grey and Celebrations, By the Cute and Girly- Think Spring



If you participate in the hop today you will be entered to win these fabulous goodies!!!





The prize includes:
Proud Momma Stamp Set, Spring Stepping Stamp Set, Wings of Hope Stamp Set, two pieces satin ribbon, a package of ICE sticky gems, and 10 two-tone pink Prima roses.

Denise is also offering another fabulous bonus!!! "Whimsy Stamps will be offering a special promotion from noon EST on Sunday until noon EST on Monday. The first 25 orders placed at Whimsy, regardless of total, will receive free shipping.
