Wilbur Blog Hop Challenge

Welcome to our third day of Blog Hop Challenges, where we are introducing the newest sock goblin, Wilbur!! We love that you have been playing along everyday, so keep up the commenting!! We love our fans!!

Wilbur is a 3x4 set that includes a total of 3 stamps and will sell for $9.00. This set will be for sale at 11pmEST on Saturday, August 31st.

I wanted to use these pretty pastel papers - I'm loving pastels at the moment - and wanted to pair them with a dramatic black panel. I remembered this awesome chalkboard look Heather shared last month, so plugged in my heat gun and got to work!

I used a Picket Fence Distress Marker to add a little detail to the image, filling in some stripes and the horns.

The layout is this week's There She Goes sketch! I changed it up to a square card base and lopped off a little of the circle element. I found a pack of black paperclips in a discount bin over the weekend and snagged them as I'm loving black embellies lately. I added a little flag of washi tape to this one.

Here's the inside of my card...

Wilbur was too cute not to use again, I heat embossed him on the patterned paper. Subtle but I like it!

Would you like to win the new Wilbur  stamp set?
