Friendship Hop for Simonne

Friday, December 19, 2014

Today, several of the designers for Whimsy Stamps are gathering for a special friendship hop to honor Simonne. She is a fabulous illustrator and is super sweet.  

You should have arrived from the Whimsy blog. Click here if you'd like to start there.  A couple of people are offering prizes along the way for some extra fun.


I thought it only fitting to use some of the fabulous stamps and dies that Simonne has created for the Clearly Whimsy Stamps line. I used the Scandi Christmas stamp set for my background and the hello word die. I started by inking my background with my distress inks. I then stamped the background three times. I then used the inlaid die cutting technique for the hello die.


Your next stop on the hop is the talented Debbie Eastman.

Here's a list of those participating in the hop. 

Alanna Moses (that's me!)
