Under the Sea

Hello friends.  I hope you're all having a wonderful weekend so far.  I have a new card to share with you.

This is Winnifred Whale.  Isn't it a cutie?  This is a new digi design by Crissy Armstrong and it comes with two sentiments.  I've colored her with copics and colored pencils and used a little bit of Glossy Accents on the water coming from her blow hole.  I used some ribbon from my stash and added a little button.  You can find this sweet image and lots of others over at the Whimsy Stamps store.

Whimsy has also released its first issue of Whimsy Stamps Inspirations Magazine!  It's packed with amazing samples from the design team and customers, as well as three different tutorials that you can follow along with step-by-step.  We are excited to bring you samples that have never been seen before and we hope that they will inspire you to create using your favorite Whimsy products!  You can find the magazine here: 

Thank you so much for stopping by!
