"Antidepresstamps: GBB&B" Blog Hop

Yay! It's time for the Antidepresstamps Giggle Bears, Birds and Bees blog hop! These new stamps have been designed by someone who always puts me in awe. Nina Aaslund is not only an extraordinary card-maker, but a fantastic illustrator as well. I know I will never do the same justice to Nina's stamps as she does with mine, but I'm very proud to be a part of this release and give you a glimpse of what you can do with this line.



This is the sweetest set full of fun and expressive characters. The bears are so cuddly, but I love the bees the most, especially the wide mouthed one who looks like he's got a smug little secret. I also liked the ice cream cone and how absurdly fun it is to create your own flavors by coordinating with the background papers (or maybe that's just me).

There's so much to do with these stamps, and I know you'll see so many more incredible examples on this blog hop. Your next stop is actually Nina's very own blog. Make sure you visit ALL of the stops because someone is giving away the entire set for free (TODAY ONLY)!

Here's the entire blog hop map in case you get lost, plus the direct links to the shop if you're already convinced you absolutely need this set in your life:
