Whimsy Stamps meets Glue Dots - Inspirations Blog Hop

This post will stay on top until noon Friday August 31st. 

Hello Everyone & Welcome To The Whimsy Stamps Meets Glue Dots -  Inspirations Blog Hop 


Join us from August 27h through August 31st for a fun joint blog hop between Whimsy Stamps and Glue Dots. Our teams will be sharing lots of beautiful projects featuring products from both of these companies. And we will have lots of prizes hidden along the hop as well as a grand prize valued at $100!
To enter into the giveaways, you just need to comment on EACH blog throughout the hop. Then for the grand prize after you have commented on all stops along the hop, enter your name and email in the Linky-Tool at the last stop. Winners will be randomly selected and announced on Monday, September 3rd. Good luck and have fun!
For my project for todays hop I made a sweet shaker birthday card using the Sketched Elephants clear stamp set and the matching Sketched Elephants dies set. 


I colored the images using PITT Artist Big Brush Pens. They are India ink pens and water soluble. Once dry the ink is waterproof. I like the bright India ink colors and because they are waterproof after they dried you can layer and built the colors easily. I also used these pens to create the shaker background layer. The shaker window is made using the Shaker Maker Rectangle die set. 
Links to all the Whimsy products used can be found below. Just click and the links will get you right to the product in the store.

I used Glue Dots Micro Dots to adhere some of the shaker filling to the background. They are super small and permanent, so perfect for the job. The clear acetate sheet was adhered using Glue Lines.  With a Pop-Up Glue dot I added the elephants hat to give it a real 3D effect.  The elephant image and the balloon where glued on with All-purpose Glue Dots.
