Make It Crafty and Whimsy Stamps meet on the street!

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.

Make it Crafty is trying something new offering all the different elements for you to build your own urban backdrop.

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.

The 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 ANNIKA

I made 2 cards, the first uses Kenny K's Boogie Down, 4 images from the Make It Crafty Urban Street Collection,
and 2 of the new Whimsy sentiments:

Coloured with Copics; paper is Basic Grey 'Archaic'; black pleated ribbon and stars are from my craft stash

And my second card uses Kenny K's Victory Kid,
4 images from the Make It Crafty Urban Street Collection,
and 2 of the new Whimsy sentiments:

Coloured with Copics; paper is Basic Grey 'Archaic'; 7 different coloured eyelets are from my craft stash.


Your next stop on HOP B is MARILYN, 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

JLJ Designs said...

Love the cards, Carole! You managed to create two completely different feels - I love both.

Jen

Cindy2 said...

Both of your cards are wonderful.

Annika said...

It's bloody amazing that you managed to make TWO cards for the hop - colouring like that must take freakin' ages!! Your work with facial features and textile is just beyond belief!
Oh, and embossing printed images - all you need to do is to print in high quality on coated card (like pearlescent or gloss) which doesn't absorb the ink fast, then you'll have enough time to dump the embossing powder on as soon as it's out of printer. Easy, really :)
Hugs
Annika

EmbossingQueen said...

What gorgeous cards you have made. I love the window colouring in the first card and the colour scheme you have used. I like the eyelets along the bottom of the second card and the way the background is more muted which makes the Victory Kid image stand out much more. Thanks for sharing.
