World Cardmaking Day "Inspired By" Challenge

Hello, Whimsy friends!  The first Saturday in October is World Cardmaking Day.  This day is dedicated to celebrating the art of handmade cards, which is especially important during this time of social distancing.  This year, instead of a blog hop, we are celebrating by hosting a week-long challenge.  To make it even more fun and enticing, some of our industry partners are also sponsoring prizes!

Therm O Web - $25 gift card
Tombow - Celebration Dual Brush Pen 10-Pack ($26.99 value) AND 
Fudensouke Color Brush Pen 10-Pack ($25.99 value)
WOW! Embossing - $20 gift card
Whimsy Stamps - $25 gift card

We are so grateful to these partners for their sponsorship!  Please be sure to visit each of them and give them a follow or a like.

We have an amazing team of designers, as I'm sure you will agree!  We asked each of them to choose their favorite Whimsy project, which are shared below.  For this "Inspired By" challenge, simply choose one of these projects and let it inspire you.  Maybe you'll be inspired by the theme of the project, the colors used, the layout... the possibilities are endless.  

Challenge Rules:

                                            1. Create a NEW card using one of the inspiration photos above.  
                                                You are welcome to use products from other companies, but 
                                                the focus must be on Whimsy Stamps' products.  
                                            2. Post your card to your blog and/or social media account and link 
                                                back to this challenge.
                                            3. Add a link to your project using the InLinkz below.  


All cards must be posted and linked by midnight EST on Friday, October 9th.  Winners will be announced on the Whimsy blog on Monday, October 12th.

Happy World Cardmaking Day and Happy Crafting!
