Whimsy Stamps & Glue Dots Blog Hop

Join us from August 27h through August 31st for a fun joint blog hop between Whimsy Stamps and Glue Dots. 


Our teams will be sharing lots of beautiful projects featuring products from both of these companies. And we will have lots of prizes hidden along the hop as well as a grand prize valued at $100! To enter into the giveaways, you just need to comment on EACH blog throughout the hop. Then for the grand prize after you have commented on all stops along the hop, enter your name and email in the linky tool at the last stop. Winners will be randomly selected and announced on Monday, September 3rd. Good luck and have fun! 

I used the adorable 'Penguin Spook Nite' stamp from Whimsy Stamps for my card. I stamped the image and colored it with my prismacolor pencils. 


I cut a white panel of cardstock measuring 4" x 5.25". I 'partial' stamped Whimsy Stamps Lattice Background stamp using Versamark Watermark ink and then heat embossed it with Ranger white embossing powder. I blended spiced marmalade and mustard seed distress inks over the background, wiping it with a kitchen towel to remove any excess ink from the heat embossing.

I die cut a black frame using Whimsy Stamps Notched Rectangles die set. I used Glue Dots 'Glue Lines' to adhere the frame to the base panel. These were perfect for sticking down the frame as they were thin lines of glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the upcoming 'You're my Boo' stamp set (*SNEAK PEEK ALERT!!) - this will be released in September. I cut this into a banner shape. I also cut coordinating colored cardstock into banners. I used Glue Dots permanent glue squares to adhere the bottom 2 banners and the used Glue Dots pop-up dots to pop up the sentiment banner. I also used these to pop up the image.

I finished the card off with some enamel dots from Whimsy Stamps Summer Breeze collection, and adhered the whole panel to a standard A2 black crd base.

Here is the full Blog Hop list:
