Introducing...

Forest Whimsy

I "transplanted" the tree stump and snail from my former "Summer Trees" stamp set and added a couple of whimsical flowers to fill the spaces.  Each and every line was fine-tuned and they stamp beautifully!
























Laurie and Heather created gorgeous cards using Promenade today

Laurie's card is divine!  I love the rich colors, her design and that freaking gorgeous BOW!!  The dots add such a pretty touch to the border :)























Ahhhh, how pretty and flirty is this???  Those glitter stripes are just dreamy!  I am LOVING how she created movement by stamping off the ink...wow :)





















Would you like another shot at winning Forest Whimsy?

ok :)

I have chosen the release order for many "former Kim Hughes Collection stamps", but I am curious if you have more of a need for little girl or little boy stamps?  Simply post your preference here and I will choose one winner.  

Remember...the deadline for the current SPARKS Challenge is TOMORROW night.  The details are HERE

Wednesday is also the deadline to post your holiday cards on THIS POST to win Santa Paws stamp set

Thanks for stopping by :)
hugs,
Kim

    Those are cute cards for inspiration today too - thanks ladies ;)
    Thanks for the chance to win... it's a close call but I think I need more girl stamps. But frankly, just more stamps will do, ha!!!

  3. so cute! i've called my son my little gnome since the day he was born! so i know i'm going to use this stamp set a lot!!
    and i think you can't go wrong with little girl/boy stamps! i like to make layouts and they would work really well i think!

  4. I will get use out of both boy and girl stamps, but I think with the recent release of My Guy, alot of my "boy bases" are covered. Of course, if it has the Paper Smooches name on it, I will love it no matter what :)

  5. So happy that some of the CHF images are returning!! This set is so much fun! SOOO hoping that Spring Trees will be available too!

    Although my three boys are grown now... I'll always have a soft spot for "little boy" things.

  22. Fantastically cute set! And love the examples from Promenade too. I have two boys myself, so my preferene would lean towards boy stamps.

  23. Such a fun cute set! I have so many nephews in my family that it would be great to have some boy stamps for them.

  24. This is sooo cute! Love the foresty feeling!!! I would go for a little boys set, 'cause there are so much more little boys around me than little girls. The girls will have a luxury position when they grow up, hi hi.
    Curious what more you will have for us in the coming months!!
    Hugs, Wendy

  31. LOVE this set. Will you be re-releasing any of your holiday stamps?

    ReplyDelete
  32. what an adorable set! I do need more boy sets, but love girl sets more. I just love cute!

  33. I'm loving this new set, and I'd love to see your take on boy stamps :) I would also LOVE to see a set on weight loss, working out, healthy eating and the ups and downs that go with all of those changes. I'm going thru it myself and have a number of friends on the journey with me. Little cards to remind them how well they're doing, or how hard it really is, would be great! :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Little boy stamps, PLEASE!!! It feels like the market is flooded with things for girls and I have a son. The vast majority if my friends have boys. I have people ask me "do you have anything for boys?" Help!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Love this one - especially that little snail! He's just so CUTE. :) I have a son and a daughter, but I find I'm always struggling with finding nice boy stuff, so a little boys set would be lovely. :)

  38. This is pure cuteness! As the mom of two boys, I'm leaning towards more stamps for boys please! Thanks so much for asking!

    ReplyDelete
  39. This set is so cute!!! I would love to see a little boy set, I think you can use many different stamps for little girls but it's hard to find stuff for little boys.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Boys, boys and more boys... my little guys LOVE to stamp... so any set with them in mind would be a hit in our house.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Boy, only because I have a TON that are so female-related! Those males are tough! ;0)

    ReplyDelete
  42. very cute set, i love the little hedgehog! I dont know any babies in my life, but it is harder to do little boy cards for sure!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Love these! My son was a garden gnome for Halloween, so this stamp would be perfect for the scrapbook!!!! :) And def little boy stuff. I have 2 boys and it's always hard to find boyish things to make cards with! Older and younger :D

    ReplyDelete
  45. I think boy cards and projects are the HARDEST to achieve and think most stamps are more girlie so I think I need more boyish stuff to create with!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Thanks for another chance to win! I'd like boy stamps please!

    ReplyDelete

  49. Being a momm of four girls, the youngest only 2 1/2 months old, I definitely need more girl stamps please!!!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Since most of my stamping is girly related, I am sorta short in the boy stamp area, so I guess boy is my vote but anything Kim Hughes is perfect!!!

    ReplyDelete
  51. This set is :::adorable!!!::: I would love to win it - I have such a crush on that gnome!

    My one child (a girl) is all grown up and off at college, but she still likes it when I send her cards, so I'm going to say - MORE GIRL STAMPS!!

    ReplyDelete

    I have only girl stamps. So it's definetely boy for me

    ReplyDelete
  61. I need BOTH! I have several young nieces and nephews plus lots of friends with little kids. BUT if I had to choose, I would say I need more boy ones. Girls are easier to come up with than boys. I always need ideas for boy cards. Thanks for the chance to win. :D

    ReplyDelete
  62. Little boy stamps!!! Actually I would use both, hehe! LOVE YOUR STAMPS!!!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I'm not sure what I would have more of a use for... But maybe little boy stamps? I think there's probably more little girl stuff out there =)

    ReplyDelete
  64. I recently ordered a bunch of your stamps (for the first time) and I AM IN LOVE!!! I would be so happy to win these ones. I think mushrooms are just the cutest things ever! Thanks so much for the chance to win! I don't have children, but I'm partial to little girls stamps b/c I can usually find other ways to incorporate them into my designs. Can't wait to see what you guys have in store!
