Three Companies Team Up BLOG HOP!

Not one, Not two but THREE COMPANIES have come together to bring you a fantastic collection of images, sentiments and even matching embellishments to get your creative minds flowing with ideas!

WHO ARE THEY??


If you have been following the lead up to our big release then you may have taken a stab at guessing who we are.


If you guessed...
Whimsy Stamps, Make it CraftyLittle Miss Muffet Stamps!


Then you are correct!! Congrats!

Now as you can imagine there are HEAPS of prizes to be won but before all that, join us on our incredible inspiration hop where the talented girls from our teams share different ways you can combine our products.
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!

With it being Valentine's Day, of course the theme has an element of love... whether it be friendships, a thank you or even a romantic kiss in Paris... you are sure to feel the love all round.
So if you have just popped by to say hi and stumbled into this hop, then you're in the right place because I'm the first stop of the hop!

For my projects, I decided to use a few products from the new release.  The first card uses Little Miss Muffet's Nora Clair Hatter, Whimsy Stamps Thanks a Bunch Notables 2 sentiment cut out using the Notables 2 dieMake it Crafty's Paris Elements, Urban Street digis, and Fancy Collection chipboard. 

This second card is a bit more simple and uses the new Whimsy Stamps Vintage Notebook Page background stamp as well as Make it Crafty's Fancy Collection chipboard.  The Lamp Post die is also new from Whimsy Stamps.  Both the lamp post die cut and chipboard were covered with Viva Decor Pearl Pen in Bronze.  I was going for a metal-like look.  Did I at all come close? lol.  I really tried to step out of my comfort zone for this card and I'm not sure I'm too fond of it, but at least I tried :)  The sentiment frame is from the Whimsy Stamps Sympathy Notables 3 stamp set and cut out using the Notables 3 die.

I just couldn't stop playing!  My third and final card uses Little Miss Muffet's Agent Eclair Dropping Parachute (paper pieced) with Make it Crafty's Make it Crafty's Fancy Collection chipboard and Whimsy's Sympathy Notables 3 stamp set cut out using the Notables 3 die.  Another card that's a bit different from what I usually do :)

I hope these bring you a little inspiration!

Having said that you have certainly made the lantern look metallic on your second card and well done you for getting into the uncomfortable zone, I don't think we do that often enough. hugs heidix
