Whimsy Stamps Little Cottage Cuties release!


Welcome to the Elisabeth Bell for Whimsy Stamps BLOG HOP!
If you've arrived here from Alberto's blog, then you're on the right track!  
If not, please CLICK HERE to start the hop at Debbie'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.

~ Apple Blossom ~                                  ~ Chloe ~


~ 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!

For today's hope, I've used the gorgeous Apple Blossom!  Isn't she just a cutie pie? The sentiment is from the Friendship Notables 2 sentiment set and it's framed around a chipboard frame by Make it Crafty (available at the Whimsy Store).  I thought it was about time to use up some chippies so I stuck a few dragonflies in random places.  The vines were cut out using the Vines Die Set and the border was cut using the Double Scalloped Border Die.  Very heavily embellished card, but I just couldn't stop, lol.

Stamps: Whimsy Stamps Apple Blossom and  Friendship Notables 2 sentiment;  Coloring medium: Copics on Make it Colour blending card stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black;  Paper: Crate Paper Apple Cheddar Soup; Embellishments: Make it Crafty chipboard, doily, colored hemp coard, WOC flowers, pearls, Viva Decor Pearl Pen, May Arts ribbon, Cat's Eye chalk ink pad for distressing around the edges; Tools: Whimsy Stamps Shapeology Vines Die Set and Double Scalloped Border Die, Cuttlebug, Grand Calibur, Spellbinders die


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


Make sure to head over to Beate's always gorgeous blog to continue with the hop!


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