Whimsy April 2015 Release - Grand Blog Hop!

Welcome to the ...

Whimsy Stamps April release BLOG HOP!
The DT have been sharing some amazing creations made with new stamps over the last couple of days, and today we are celebrating their release with a GRAND BLOG HOP!

You can see all the stamps and dies from this release, along with the last 2 days hops at the Whimsy blog. And the entire new release is available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store RIGHT NOW!

Well the image I'm using today was so cute that I couldn't resist making TWO cards! (Well actually I had two ideas and couldn't decide which to go with so just did both lol!)
I've used the new image from Krista Heij-Barber called 'Pirate Boy', available from Whimsy Stamps.

Here's the first card...

 Another view...

And a close up of the cute little Pirate Boy ;)

The images were stamped with Memento ink and coloured with Copic markers. I fussy cut around them all ready to use for each card. The digital papers and cute matching elements are from the Nitwit Collection 'Land Ho' kit, and I kind of went a little crazy with them. ;)

Here's the second card...
 
Another angle...

 And another close up...
 
I hope you like them!

So now it's time for you to continue today's hop!
