Elisabeth Bell for Whimsy BLOG HOP and SWEET STUFF!!


Welcome to the Elisabeth Bell for Whimsy Stamps BLOG HOP!


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.

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 my card today I used the absolutely darling little CHLOE from the new release and isn't she the cutest little thing. This card was made for the little apple pie baking grandmother of one of my good friends and was a special request! Her kitchen is actually 50's turquoise and red so I think these papers from Kaisercraft's Nan's Favorites Collection are perfect!! Little Chloe was colored with Copics, adding a touch of Stardust Stickles to the lace and bee and Glossy Accents to the apples in her basket. The apple atop the twill ribbon bow is a button with the back removed. All of the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts: Cherry Blossoms, Carnations, Sweetheart Blossoms, and Gypsophilia.


For the inside I used a MS accordian apple which is very reminiscent of days gone by for me. I didn't add a jotting spot since the DP is light enough to write grandma a note.


And since I know Grandma will use this as a stand-up card I decorated the back of the card as well with another apple button and a couple of leaves on a medallion from the paper set.

I hope you like my little creation and will decide to hop along the Whimsy trail with all of us today! If you would like to hop along, 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!


SWEET STUFF for my FOLLOWERS!!!



You all know that I can't hop unless I offer some SWEET STUFF for you! This little candy is in addition to the Blog Hop prizes so be sure to participate in everything today for more chances to win some real cuties!! I would like to share with you the same little cutie that I used on my card today--Little Chloe, which may just be my very favorite of the group....but who can make that decision when they are all so doggone precious!!!! Be assured that Chloe will not travel to the winner alone--I will also be adding some additional surprises to keep her company. So all you have to do is leave your information with the Little Blue Froggy before Friday, March 9, at Midnight EST. If you don't have a blog, just jump over the URL and leave your info. Good Luck!

Hi Jacque~

I just love Elisabeth Bell creations, and Chloe is no different. I love her big blue eyes. And, how you colored her outfit with the same colors! This card is like a step back in time...with the kitchen paper and that gingham we all love. The flowers really accent Chloe beautifully. I love that giant pop-out apple! What a wonderful touch.

Thank you for the chance to receive and give a good home to our very own Chloe! You are so sweet!

He IS Able!
