Wee Stamps for Whimsy Stamps Blog Hop!!


Hello and welcome to the Wee Stamps for Whimsy Stamps BLOG HOP!

On Sunday we announced the wonderful news that Whimsy Stamps is exclusively releasing Sylvia Zet's beautiful wee stamps collection in rubber!

Whimsy Stamps is releasing 6 new Wee Stamps for Whimsy Stamps today and these new goodies are available to buy right now from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favourites.

The Whimsy Stamps DT and Special Guests have been showcasing these fabulous stamps for the past 3 days, and today we are celebrating their release with a BLOG HOP! We are delighted to welcome our wonderful special guests who are joining the Whimsy DT for this hop - Elaine Hughes, Alberto Gava, Mariska van der Veer, Jacque Beddingfield, Dena Concienne, Tab Robinson and Sylvia Zet herself!

The hop starts today (Wednesday October 5th at noon EST) and ends on Tuesday October 11th at noon EST.

For this hop we have 5 different prize draws! One lucky hopper will win the entire new release of 6 stamps. We also have 4 mini candy stops throughout the hop where you can enter to win a new release stamp! I'm not going to tell you where they are, so you'll just have to complete the hop! *wink*

If you would like to hop along with us today, please CLICK HERE to start the hop at Ann’s blog.


And if you are well on your way through the hop, that means you've popped over from the amazing Dena Concienne's blog!!

And here is my project featuring the newly released Winter Fairy image by Sylvia Zet, coloured in distress inks, of course and sparkled up with Star Dust Stickles!!


The papers are Echo Park (stripes) and Webster's Pages. I've cut out a hole into the center of my striped paper as sort of a frame, then centered my painted image with the rest of the card and adhered my tilted "frame" with double sided tape. After trimming the paper of the painted image, I adhered the frame to a glammed up doily and sewed around the perimeter. The ribbon has been tucked into place, while the ribbon was glued on. All distressing was achieved with a Vintage Photo ink pad.


And here's a "close-up" if you will... of the sparkling goodness that went into this project!! The snowflake brads are by The Paper Studio and sanded then covered with Picket Fence crackle and stickles, the flowers are a mix of many companies, but they were all spritzed with Iridescent Gold and stickled up, then snow glass was added. The stamen is from WOC, the holly leaf punch is Nellie Snellen and the snowflake punch is Martha Stewart.





Finally, here is a complete blog hop list in hopping order:


Thank you so much for hopping with us today and I hope you enjoy the new release! Now hop on over to visit Sylvia Blum and see what kind of magic she's created for our viewing pleasure!!!


Oooooh, ooooh, hang on there!!! I happen to be one of the girls hosting a surprise stamp draw, so please, hoppers, do feel free to try your luck at winning one of these sweet images IN RUBBER!! WOO!!!! Prizes will be drawn at the commencement of the hop!!

Thanks again for your visit today!!!
hugs, stephanne
