Jacque Beddingfield (that's ME!!!)


For today’s card I inked up the lovely little AppleCyder Jubilee from the Little Cottage Cuties Collection Illustrated by Elisabeth Bell for Whimsy Stamps.




I used Bazzill for the base and all double matting and the DP is from the Merry & Bright paper pad by Carta Bella. The image was colored with Copics and Promarkers, adding some Prisma Glitter for the steam and Glossy Accents to the cup, plate, and holly berries. I used narrow red satin ribbon for the lefthand treatment topped with a quadruple bow, holly leaves and small red rose. I pretended that this cutie was having hot tea so I made a little dangle teapot using a matching green bead. I finished the card by adding some diecut corners and self-adhesive pearls.

Remember that the entire new release is available to buy right now from the Whimsy Stamps store along with all your Whimsy favorites. Be sure to check out the Whimsy Christmas Shop for all of those special holiday products!!


SWEET STUFF!!!

 For those of you who are new to Whimsy Stamps, we hold a 3-day new release event each month: a Sneak Peek Blog Hop on the day before the release (today), a Release Day Blog Hop on release day (tomorrow), and finally a Review Day Blog Hop the day after the release. Each blog hop has a prize of 2 new release stamps hidden somewhere along the way and you have 24hrs to enter each prize draw! To be entered into today's blog hop prize draw, be sure to leave a comment on ALL of the DT's posts listed below by 12.00PM EST tomorrow. All winners will be announced on the Whimsy blog on Friday.

To take a peek at today's fabulous new release creations, please click on the links below...


For today’s card, I inked up the darling little IRIS designed by the quintessentially talented Sylvia Zet of Wee Stamps for Whimsy Stamps.



The base and all double matting is Bazzill and the DP is from the Fabulous paper pad by Simple Stories. The image was colored with Copics and Promarkers, adding a touch of Prisma Glitter to the wings and accents. The metal corners, pearls, and flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts. For some crazy reason, this card would not photograph exactly right.....may have something to do with the fact that I know nothing about photography. IRL the colors do match...hahahhah



SWEET STUFF!!


I have TWO extra little IRIS stamps and they are looking for a good home!! If you would like to be in for the draw, please leave a comment below before Thursday, November 21 at 8 AM ET. Good Luck!!!



 Don’t forget to stop by the Whimsy Inspirations Blog tomorrow (Wednesday) for the full reveal of our brand new release and to take part in our New Release Blog Hop! Thanks so much for stopping by today and happy hopping! Until the next time, Big Hugs for YOU!!

Jacque's Sunday SWEET STUFF!!!


Happy Day to everyone!!! It is exciting to be back with Jacque's Sunday SWEET STUFF and I hope you will like what I have selected for this week. I appreciate your bearing with me as I planned the largest fund raiser for breast cancer research in this area for the month of October.....and I am so appreciative of those who saw fit to join with me in this undertaking for such a worthy cause. Thank you!!!

The rules have changed a little bit because I have found that many of the participants are "candy only" blogs and I want the winners to be people who will appreciate and enjoy using the supplies that I have purchased as well as those who visit my blog on a regular basis. Yes, I do purchase everything that I have in my SWEET STUFF and I pay all shipping!! So I think I personally can decide what the rules are!!


1 Set of Inkadinkado Tags and Wishes (17 Stamps)
100 WOC Mixed Colour Sweetheart Blossoms
50 WOC Mixed Green and White Wild Roses
30 WOC Mixed Set of Pink Flowers
