Stamp Something Celebration Hop and a Sneak

Hi all!

Well, I had this post all set and ready to go, but then blogger went down and lost it was! Boo Hoo! I'm sure I'm not alone, but I was tired of waiting to see if it would be restored. So here I sit typing again. Today is our 3 year anniversary over at Stamp Something and we are celebrating with some awesome prizes and a blog hop!


The challenge this week is "Anything Goes" and there is a fabulous Copic prize sponsored by the Merriartist! And we have a second prize too. AND...the DT members each have blog candy for the hoppers too! So lots of chances for you to win cool stuff this week! Head on over to the SS blog to check everything out! You have until 7pm ET on Thursday, May 19th to hop and enter the "Anything Goes" challenge. Good luck and have fun!
For my card I'm sharing a Whimsy Stamps creation and giving you all some sneak peeks too! On Wednesday, May 18th we'll be releasing 18 new stamps and sentiment sets and 2 new dies and today is our first day of sneaks!

My card uses the adorable new "Baby of Mine" stamp illustrated by Crissy Armstrong. I've colored with copics and stitched the edges on the sewing machine. The papers are Prima and have been distressed and stitched. I've embellished with flowers, pearls, stickles, lace, ribbon, and a baby bottle charm (available at Whimsy). Then to finish off I've used the new Welcome Baby Sentiment set with our new Welcome Baby Die Set! This die is a rattle and I've added one of the seal sentiments.

This card fits at:
Cute Card Thursday: It's so Distressing
Crafts and Me - #34 Punches
Crafty Creations - #118 Anything Goes
Divas by Design -  Anything goes
My Mum's Craft shop - #5 Die-cuts

Simon Says Stamp - Baby Cards
Stampavie and More - #141 Ribbons
Everybody-Art-Challenge - Flowers

Now on to my blog candy chance which is sponsored by Whimsy Stamps! Whimsy is offering one lucky commenter and linker from my blog the prize of 6 of the new release rubber stamps - 2 from each of our image artists - along with some cherry blossom flowers and an assortment of charms! All you have to do is comment and leave a link using the linky feature below by 7pm ET on Thursday, May 19th. My winner will be chosen and posted the following Friday morning with the next SS challenge. Good luck!


The next stop on our hop today is the fabulously talented Erin's blog! Be sure to pop over and see what she has in store for you too. Be aware though that with all the blogger trouble, some of the DT posts are going up late so you might want to plan to hop tomorrow instead. Have a great night and happy hopping!
