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 arrived here from Beate's beautiful blog then you are in the right place, if not and you would like to hop along with us today,

please CLICK HERE to start the hop at Debbie's blog.


For my card today I used the stamp "Chloe".



I used my Faber Castell Polychromos pencils for coloring, and I can tell you this one was just as much fun coloring as the "Picked Sweet" image from yesterday's sneak peek.

I used a pretty simple sketch here, the blue designer paper is by stampin up, and the pretty strip of paper is by DCWV. I placed a paper doily behind the image. I really wanted to add more flowers, but they just looked like they took away from the the beautiful image, so I left them off. Instead I added a little bow and a button with some linen thread.

The sentiment is from the set "Thank you tabs 1" by Whimsy Stamps. It has been cut out using Whimsy's Tab 1 die.

I would love to enter this card to the following challenges:

Your next stop on this hop is Dena's fabulous blog!

Finally, here is a complete blog hop list in hopping order in case you get lost.



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