Whimsy Stamps Digital Collection Release Party!

Today is the day!
Whimsy Stamps Digital Collection Release Party

If you've come from Crissy's blog, then you're on the right track.  If not, please head over to Crissy's blog because she is kicking off our blog hop today.

I'm so excited about this event because all week, I've seen such wonderful creations from the Whimsy Stamps design team using new images and sentiments from the Whimsy Stamps Digital Collection!  There are a whole lot of things releasing today including: exclusive designs from Crissy Armstrong, Katie Sowa, and myself as well as some others from Whimsy's previous rubber stamp collections. All will be available for download upon completion of purchase. Each download will contain a zip file with 3 versions of the image, a JPEG, TIFF, and PNG all at 300dpi resolution. Images can be flipped, rotated, or resized to fit project needs.  The sentiments also come in JPEG as whole sheets (letter size 8.5" x 11") and A2 size (4.25" x 5.5") so that you can print all of them as once.  The A2 size is supposed to be for you to be easier to use some of the sentiments with punches.  At least, that's the plan, lol.

For today's blog hop, we have of course a fantastic prize: a $15 gift certificate to the Whimsy Store, Crissy's Digi "Pebbles the Cat", Katies's Digi "Awww, So Tweet!", the "Mother's Day Sentiments" set, and Whimsy Digi "Princess Coach."  We also have a free digital sentiment set "Celebrations" for you to download, but you have to make it all the way through the end of the hop to download it.  Please comment on this post as well as all the other posts participating in the blog hop by Friday, April 16th Noon EST to be in the running to win this awesome prize!

For today's blog hop creation, I've used Crissy's Hang In There turtle along with a sentiment from the coordinating sentiment set.  This turtle is just so sweet!!

Image: Whimsy Stamps Hang in There with coordinating sentiment; Medium: Distress Inks; Paper: BasicGrey Origins; Accessories/tools: Cuttlebug, nestabilities, Prima flowers, flowers from Wild Orchids, pom pom ribbon

Time to go on with the rest of the party! Head to Rowena's blog to find her fantastic creation!
