Welcome Elisabeth Bell to Whimsy Stamp, yay!!!

Hi everyone!

We at Whimsy Stamps are very excited to announce that a new artist has joined the Whimsy family – please give a warm Whimsy welcome to the amazing ... Elisabeth Bell!

Elisabeth’s debut release for Whimsy Stamps is the Little Cottage Cuties line of rubber stamps and will be available to buy from the Whimsy store on Wednesday (7 March 2012). In the lead up to their release, the Whimsy DT and Special Guests are excited to share with you 2 days packed full of previews of these gorgeous stamps.



I've selected the lovely Sun Kissed to paint up in distress inks, the papers are Basic Grey and the plaid is 3 Bugs in a Rug. Flowers are from I Am Roses and WOC and I have used several of our Whimsy die cuts as well, the corner dies and the vines, love them!! I'll be popping this in at:
Basic Grey Photo Inspiration
Cute Card Thursday Signs of Spring
Stampin' For the Weekend Bingo!!! Pink, Lace, Flowers

Thank you so much for coming by and checking it out!!
big hugs, stephanne

Hi Stephanie,
Well this is the first time I have been to your blog and I have spent alittle while having a mini tour. I really like your style and am glad I popped by today.
I adore the card you have created it is so warm and sunny. It's funny, I normally don't use peach, I haven't really gotten on with it but lately I have seen 3or4 cards done in shades of peach and have been blown away. Bev Rochester did one recently that really got me thinking differently, now with your lovely creation I am most certainly going to have to try again with this colourway.
Thank you for the mini hop. Looking forward to seeing more creations tomorrow.
Regards Linda
