Happy Celebrating!


Hello friends & Happy Tuesday. Today we have a little celelbration going on!  I hope you join in the fun!

Throughout June, the Quixotic Paperie design team and friends have been celebrating the store's 2nd anniversary!  Today is the final in a series of spotlights featuring stamp companies stocked at Quixotic Paperie (an online UK stockist for Whimsy), and some of the Whimsy Stamps Design Team have joined in to throw the spotlight on Whimsy Stamps!

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.

The ranges include the Crissy Armstrong Collection; Melissa Jenkins Meljen's Design Collection; KennyK Collection; Whimsy Sentiment and dies by Raindrop Echo Designs; Whimsy Animals Collection and Whimsy Kids Collection. 

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!

For my celebration creation I used Fairy Daydreams from the Crissy Armstrong Collection. This time I colored using Faber Castell Albrecht Duerer Aquarell Pencils. DP is from Basic Grey's newest Collection Out of Print.   Dies used: Leavy Swirl, Butterfly & Heart Doily - Cheery Lynn Designs, Circles - Spellbinders. Flowers are from my stash and Whimys Buds
