Elisabeth Bell Release Day Blog Hoppity Hop!!


Welcome to the Elisabeth Bell for Whimsy Stamps BLOG HOP!

If you've been hopping along, that means that you have arrived from the amazing POP'S BLOG!!

On Monday we announced the wonderful news that Whimsy Stamps has welcomed the amazing Elisabeth Bell to our family of Whimsy Stamps artists.

Whimsy Stamps is releasing 4 new Elisabeth Bell Little Cottage Cuties rubber stamps today and these new goodies are available to buy right now from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favourites.

~ Picked Sweet ~                                     ~ Sun Kissed ~


The Whimsy Stamps DT and Special Guests have been previewing these beautiful stamps for the past 2 days, and today we are celebrating their release with a BLOG HOP!

The hop starts today (Wednesday March 7th at 12.00PM EST) and ends on Wednesday March 14th at 12.00PM EST.

For this hop we have five different prize draws! One lucky hopper will win the entire new release of ALL four stamps. We also have four mini candy stops throughout the hop where you can enter to win a new release stamp! We're not telling you where they are, so be sure to complete the hop to find them!

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

And here is my creation for the blog hop today!!



Yep, that's my hand poking out from the card, lol, I've had to chase the sun around today trying to get a good picture, and still, I fail!! At first I was thinking soft and sweet, but the inks got a hold of my soul and I went bright and bold and decided to offset the colour work with a clean and simple card. The image is Apple Blossom, I painted her with distress ink pads, the paper is Prima and I've sewn around the edges. The more I'm looking at the card, the more I'm wanting to go back in and slather it with flowers!! Indeed, clean and simple is a HUGE challenge for me!! Enough waffling, thanks for popping in today!!

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



So scurry on over to visit TAMMY LOUISE and see what sort of glamourous goods she's got for us today!!!


Thank you so much for hopping with us today and I hope you enjoy the new release!

hugs, stephanne
