Wee Stamps for Whimsy Stamps BLOG HOP


Hi everyone and welcome to the Wee Stamps for Whimsy Stamps BLOG HOP!

On Sunday, Whimsy Stamps announced the wonderful news that they are 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. [And for my UK/European readers, you will be pleased to know that My Mum's Craft Shop will be stocking these stamps, so drop Kitty an email and ask her to reserve your favourites before they sell out before they've even arrived!].

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 - 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 ... and I'm one of the mini candy stops!!!  So if you would like to win a new release stamp, just pop your details into InLinkz at the end of this post!

If you would like to hop along with us today and haven’t arrived from the lovely Alberto's blog, please CLICK HERE to return to the beginning of the hop at Ann’s blog.

For my blog creation I used the gorgeous Sweet Blossom.  Usually I pick my paper after I've chosen my image, but this time I actually chose my flowers first!  I have a small box of WOC flowers and one of the colours I haven't really used is lilac/purple. I thought the softness of this colour went beautifully with this image... but I couldn't find some lilac pattern paper to match!  Ha ha! After pulling out ALL of my 6x6 pads, I eventually managed to find this piece from my Basic Grey Kioshi 6x6 pad - phew!  I'm quite pleased with how my colouring turned out (although I think her face is a bit bright).  I was trying to get a softer feel, which is quite difficult with Copics, but I think I managed it ... just!


So now it’s time for you to continue the hop by hopping over to the uber-talented Annika’s blog but don't forget to pop your name and details into the linky tool at the end of this post to be added to my mini candy draw to win one of the new release stamps.

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!

Hugs,
