Urban Scenes Blog Hop with Make it Crafty and Whimsy Stamps


Whimsy Stamps & Make it Crafty have come together to create a fun Urban Themed digi collection!

Ann Vento has whipped up her magic and designed an incredible collection of
funky wall sayings, city landscapes and of course a range of super cool street signs.

Make it Crafty is trying something new offering all the different elements for you to build your own urban backdrop.

Then of course, what better characters to incorporate into such a scene than the fabulous KennyK rubber stamps available from Whimsy Stamps!


Our incredibly talented Design Teams have had a blast playing with all the different elements to bring you LOTS of inspiration!

We have broken it in to TWO HOPS
HOP A Starts Here & HOP B Starts HERE!

There will be a winner for EACH HOP and if you hop your way through BOTH, you’ll go in the draw for the GRAND PRIZE TOO!

HOP A & B Winners will each receive a $15 voucher from both Whimsy Stamps and Make it Crafty

GRAND WINNER will win our full Urban Digital Collection
4 Digi Sentiment sets by Ann Vento & the Urban Elements Collection from Make it Crafty
  
You are currently on HOP B and should have arrived from Cheryl's Blog  


For my scene I have merged FIVE different Make it Crafty images to create my backdrop. For my sentiment I used two Whimsy Stamps Party Time street signs and then I popped Kenny K's Troublemaker onto the scene. I have used a fabulous tutorial by Mariska to make my Kenny K image into a 3D image - she's made up of 5 different layers and it adds an amazing depth IRL.


Your next stop on HOP B is Pattie's Blog, but before you go make sure you leave a comment below!

You have until August 21st 8PM Australian QLD time to make your way through the hops!

Be there... or be square! J
