Quixotic Paperie 2nd birthday celebrations - Whimsy spotlight!

(Please scroll down for my Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps DT post!)

The Quixotic Paperie design team and friends hope you have been enjoying the Quixotic Paperie 2nd Anniversary celebrations!  We have been throwing the spotlight onto some of the fantastic stamp companies available from Quixotic Paperie and our last celebratory spotlight for you is:

Whimsy Stamps is owned by Denise and Kevin Lynn, with Denise as the papercrafter and Kevin illustrating their Kids Collection based on their two children. As the company has developed they have built up their collection of contributing artists, stamp collections, dies and papers.

Whimsy Stamps are available in the UK/Europe at Quixotic Paperie
If you're in the US then you can find the stamps at Whimsy Stamps direct!

As part of the celebrations and the spotlight today, we have a PRIZE GIVEAWAY!  
Pop on over to the Quixotic Inspirations blog to get all the details and enter the draw to win some fantastic Whimsy Stamps and more!

My spotlight for Whimsy is on Jelly Bean, the uber cute elephant!


I went for a subtle shabby chic look and I matched Jelly Bean up with DPs from the new Cosmo Cricket UpPcycle paper pad.  It didn't turn out quite like I imagined but I quite like how it came out!  

Okay, so now for more inspiration! Hop on over to each of the blogs below to see some fantastic Whimsy Stamps makes!

Thanks for joining us and we hope you are enjoying all the Whimsy Stamps fun!

I am entering this card into Sweet Stampin's challenge for something old (the ribbon), something new (the papers).

Now this looks a tad dull after your previous 2 card but probably wouldn't have done if I'd look here first, great card though, fab colouring on the elephant.
