Summer has given me the honor to be the BnW "Mistress of Ceremonies" for the Belles 'n Whistles Fall Release Blog Hop. Well - I could not do it all by myself - so I am so pleased that our cute little Belle wanted to help me out on this one ;-)

Belle and I want to send you on a blog hop that we are sure will whet your appetite.
And we know - You will come back to this blog - craving for more ;-)

If you do - then you will have the chance to WIN the wonderful price of a complete set of these stunning stamps from the Bnw Fall release.

* When you have visited each and one of the blogs (and left comments of course) you will come back to this post.
* After a completed blog hop - please let me know which one of the images that whet your appetite the most ;-) and which DT that made you fall for it ;-)

Belle and I will then pick one lucky winner of a complete set of these stunning stamps illustrated by our sweet Elisabeth Bell.

So what are you waiting for - off you go and remember to come back to this post in order to have the chance to WIN this fab price.

Another IMPORTANT NOTE - The stamps will be starting selling - Sept 19th and shipping will begin the following week.

  7. Hi, I was not able to see Susan's Friday post on her blog (not sure why - I tried many times). I did visit the rest and enjoyed the cards and all of the recipes! My favorite stamp is the little witch. I love Peta's recipe card and the colors she used (love the purple and orange!). I am also happy that a little boy is on one of the stamps!

    ReplyDelete
  8. WOW - how much fun was that!!!!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  11. All the cards are so gorgeous, it's hard to pick one. But I really loved the stamp Scarecrow and Little Wizard a bit more than the rest.

    ReplyDelete
  12. wow what a great blog hop, think I gained 5lbs too..lol what yummy recipes and all the DT cards and projects are just beautiful..I just love elisabeth bell's stamps so much

    ReplyDelete
  13. Wow,absolutely stunning creations from everyone! Wonderful ladies! And the new stamps are stunning, I love each and everyone of them and it's very hard to choose a favourite, but I somehow loved the Hearty Thanksgiving stamp and Iris's card the most. Well done ladies, the blog hop was amazing and congratulations Summer on the new wonderful release, all Elisabeth's images are beautiful, always! :)
    Hugs, Vanja

    ps. Will return to Susan's blog later (I hope I won't forget)

  15. Stunning work from all the design team. But my fav is Hearty thanksgiving from Iris. I just thought this was a fab idea. Although I also had problems with susans post but i will pop back later to try again. caroline x

    ReplyDelete
  16. All of the work is amazing, but I am partial to the Little Witch over on Peta's blog. The reason is, I love Halloween and vibrant colors!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Oh my goodness how beautiful are they? I love the little witch but I think my fav is Warm Apple Pie, lovely! Kim

    ReplyDelete
  18. Oh wow, how much goodness was there there along the way I can't believe how beautiful those stamps were. My favourite has to be Mmmm, me please!! which Summer and Kathrin showed but I think if I have to go with one of those it will have to be Summer's because those apple dumplings just look so darn good. I have never had them but I will be getting my husband making some soon (I am unable to cook due to my disability, I'm just lazy lol).
    Thanks for a super blog hop.

  22. Hi,
    I am stunned after looking at all the wonderful projects and I am definately hungry now ;-)
    My favourite stamp is the "little witch with broom", she looks so sweet and Peta and Jodi used her in such pretty ways on their recipe cards .
    But I need to mention my second favourite stamp, it´s "Tania baking" and I really like the card Lilian made.
    Have a nice weekend!
    Thank you for this fun and yummy Blog-Hop.

  23. That was just a wonderful Blog Hop! I love all the images, but i fell for Summer's version of Mmm! Yes Please!

    Hugs
    Katrine

    ReplyDelete
  24. Thanks so much for a chance to win - I love this blog hop & have had so much fun! My favorite is "Mmm-yes please" - because it reminds me so much of my own boys, who love to help out in the kitchen. My pick for a blog project would be Kathrin - her image just reminds me of an antique or a Normal Rockwell - just precious!

    ReplyDelete
  25. This blog hop bash was such fun.... and THANK GOD I don't have to make a decision on what one caught my eye the most.... ha ha... Everyone did such a fabulous job!

  28. This has been a truly scumptious blog hop :0) The DT have done a fantastic job and I loved the little twist of including a recipe at each blog - such a great idea :0)

    It is so hard to choose, but if I have to pick one stamp, I think it has to be Tania Baking. I was so inspired by this image and the way Lilian used it on the card displayed on her blog 'Colour to Paper'.

    Thank you all soo... much for putting all the hard work into creating this blog hop and I have all my fingers crossed that I am the winner, I need to have all these stamps in my collection of EB's :0)

  29. WOW, ladies! You have all done such an awesome job! I enjoyed visiting each and every one of your blogs and drooling over your creations! My favourite image has to be the one that Lilian used - Tania Baking - as she looks just like my daughter when she is stirring the ingredients for making her 'famous' cupcakes!! LOL! I love the gingham ribbon and the 'stir' 'bake' 'taste' stickers on Lilian's creation, and how she made it look like a recipe card. Fabulous! Hugs, Sem x

    ReplyDelete
  30. ooooooooooooooohhhhhhhhh !! they are all beaytiful. i am Elisabeth Bell's fan. :)) my fav if i have to pick just one would be Tania baking.. but i really love them all :)))

  31. These stamps are beautiful. The ladies all did a great job presenting them. I think my favorite is "Little Witch" done by Jodi.

    ReplyDelete
  32. all the great foods and all the great cards...keep me blogging and crafting more. Thanks! I really like all the cards and all the recipes. Don't know weather to stay in the kitchen or the craft room!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Super cute card!! I finished the blog hop and man I am hungry now and I just had breakfast. LOL! Super cute cards everyone and I love all the new releases but if I have to pick one I'd say that Lilian Tania's Baking was my favorite. I just love that little girl stirring the bowl.

    ReplyDelete
  34. i have just finished the hoppoty hop and am now seriously hungry and I swear my foreseable bank balance was getting smaller each blog i hopped to i love them all but my favourite one is Tania baking which I found on Lilians blog

    ReplyDelete
  35. I loved every single image! If I had to pick my favorite..
    Jodi's Little Witch with the broom!
    Adore her original idea of the Latte recipe..and her design on the card was fabulous!
    Awesome release!

    ReplyDelete
  36. That was fun and everything was great.
    I think I will choose the Little Witch. I also am going to try the German Plum Crumble Cake.

  37. Oh my gosh another beautiful set on stamps!! My favorite card was Iris's she put so much detail and beautiful embellishments on it. Oh don't get me wrong they were all super adorable!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. What an exciting hop with lots to see and recipes to enjoy later! Great idea! I have to say my favourite stamp would have been Tania baking or warm apple pie but how fantastic was Iris's card with recipe card for Hearty Thanksgiving, I really just love the way she incorperated the recipe card on the inside of the card. The whole thing was simply amazing so I'll have to say that's what did it for me.
    Thanks for a great hop.
    Happy crafting

  39. Just simply gorgeous cards, everyone! I had the best time and was so proud to present these simply adorable images with you. What great fun! Let's do it again! So glad everyone is enjoying them. We had a blast getting ready to you!

  40. What a wonderful hop! All of the images are beautiful and what the DT did was nothing short of amazing! To decide is so HARD!!!!
    I am very torn and I think it would truly depend when you asked, LOL! That said, I think my very favorite is ...
    OOOOO HARD!!! Tania baking. I am so reminded of all my time in the kitchen learning. The style of the baking bowl and colors that Lilian used are what did me in. It is just so many wonderful memories! Thank you all the DT for the beautiful creations and the YUMMY recipes!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Thanks for such a yummy blog hop with a glass of fresh Lemonade!! Love all the images...I alaways adore Belles n Whistles stamps..but I don't have any yet....now I wish to get all of them.Its hard to pick one image....I think Lilian's project with "Tania Baking"image is my most favorite one...plan to do one myself for my brownie recipes....and I love Jodi's recipe card too.
    Thanks for the chance to win.

  42. The Little Witch with Broom was the stamp that wet my appetite the most, and Pete made me fall for it.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Oh cool! I am off start this fabulous hop! I shall be back soon!

    ReplyDelete
  44. What a fun and clever idea for a blog hop! I love the images (no surprise there!) but the recipes made it so much fun and a little different.

    I'm not sure I can choose favourites, they were all brilliant. But if I had to... Rosette's card was so beautiful with stunning details. Her apple pie looks delicious.

    But the recipe I'll be making first is Kathrin's plum crumble cake. Her card is also very pretty as are everyone's.

    I'd like to thank all of you for such a fun hop :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. I loved the hop! It' so different and unique! I love the idea of everyone with a recipe! Just brilliant! I love all the images but my favorite one is Little Witch with Broom. Okay, now is the hard part, I can't decide which DT's project to choose! Can I choose two? Please? Iris and Jodi!
    Thanks for a great hop!

Wow, I'm so happy Elisabeth is releasing these into stamps, I've been wanting them for awhile now! :) All the cards were amazing, love all the images, hard to choose just one, but I have to go with Iris's Hearty Thanksgiving. Thanks for the chance to win these beautiful stamps! And now I have to go eat after seeing all the yummilicious goodies!! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  49. My favorite stamp was Mmm Yes please and both Summer and Kathrin did an amazing job showing if off!

    I would have to say I really loved Tania baking by Iris. It was amazing and I can't wait to buy the stamp to make my own adorable cards!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Thank you Belle you have been a prefect little hostess.
    I have enjoyed your refreshments and have loved my visits to all your friends blogs.
    The blog that has inspired me the most is Peta. Not only was the image of the 'little witch with a broom' my favourite of the whole blog but there was a little poem on the right hand side of her blog that touched my heart. It reads

    For my Mum
    A Butterfly lights beside us
    Like a sunbeam
    And for a brief moment it's glory
    and beauty belong to our world,
    But then it flies on again,
    And though we wish it could
    Have stayed,
    We feel so lucky to have
    seen it.

    Missing you Always x

    It not only touched my heart but brought a large tear to my eye as it reminded me so much of my own sadly missed mum and the image of the witch would have been her favourite.

    A credit needs to be passed to Lilian for her card portraying 'Tania Baking' which came a runner up.

    Thank you Summer, Kram and also Belle for a lovely blog hop

  56. Wow, I have returned from your great blog hop!! These stamps are amazing (as usual). My favorite card is Ida's. There is just so much detail in the card, it just really shows off the image and what the image is all about. Thank you for the chance to win these wonderful stamps!!!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I must appologize, I said Ida, when I meant to say Iris. I'm so bad with names!! Sorry about that :(

    ReplyDelete
  58. Wow, thank you for allowing me to be a part of this blog hop. I enjoyed looking at all of the eye candy (cards) I really liked all of them and the recipes, but I liked Lilian's card (Tanya baking) the best. I loved everything about it! Great job!

    ReplyDelete
  59. What a delightful blog hop! I enjoyed each scrumptious card, delicious image, and yummy project. Now I have cakes and cards to make! hee hee.

    I have to say that my favorite image was Tanya baking. She looks so sweet with her little pigtails and diligent stirring. What could she be making!? Lillian did a great job with this one. Beautifully colored, great layout, and the sentiment stickers were such a cute touch.

    I'm off...maybe to get a snack, maybe to make a card....Can't tell which I'm craving right now...heehee.

    ReplyDelete
  60. What a great blog hop and so much fun. Loved all of the images...these gals are ARTISTS that's for sure! And the recipes were yummy and creative. I particularly liked Tania Baking....it was one of my favorites. Thanks for the opportunity to play along.

    ReplyDelete
  61. what a fun blog hop! had to take a break for lunch though, as it made me quite hungry!! grins!

    my fave stamp was Hearty Thanksgiving done by Iris, but each member did a phenom job! thank you so much for the inspiration and the neat recipes! :)

    ReplyDelete
  62. Wow, Wow, Wow is all I can say. All the DT did a SUPER job, and it was so hard to pick, but Iris took my heart away with that Hearty Thanksgiving. Her card was magnificent inside and out and that receipe, those warm colors, stole my heart, made me smell pumpkin muffins the whole time. Lol, I am going to be putting my order in for beautiful Belles and Whistles stamps. xox ~Jeni

  64. Omgoodness what a great release. I think these are my favorite fall stamps so far! I think my favorite would be Iris's Hearty Thanksgiving because she uses such rich fall colors, so pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  65. This was one delicious smelling blog hop! So hard to pick a favourite, but if I had to choose, I would say Lilian's card with the recipe cards made 'Tania baking' feel so at home! It was a great idea to include food in the photos that match the stamps, and the addition of the recipes was genius :) Now I'm off to raid the fridge!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Great fun, gorgeous cards, fabulous stamps and yummy recipes, what more could I want....

    "THE LITTLE WITCH WITH BROOM!"

    As soon as I saw Peta's recipe card I fell in love with this little witch. The colours Peta used were just right for her.

    ReplyDelete
  67. All of these images are just adorable. My #1 favorite is Iris' Hearty Thanksgiving, but Lilian's Tania Banking is a close second. The team did a wonderful job.

    ReplyDelete
  85. This was my 1st blog hop, and I loved it. The recipe theme was perfect. I have never thought of using Halloween stamps for recipes!
    Choosing my favorite stamp was tough, but I think it is the Scare Crow and Little Wizard.
    I loved both artists renditions. The Little Witch is fabulous, I really loved all the stamps! So creative!

    ReplyDelete
  86. I loved all of them, I do like the little witch she's so cute! My fav was Lilians as I feel the stamp is versatile so could be for birthdays or for making recipe books and I love how she did the cards, will be back for more peeks!
    Great blog hop even if I'm a little late but enjoyed it all the same :)

    ReplyDelete
  87. Thank you for my first blog hop experience ever! I enjoyed the hard work presented by the DT as well as all the baked goodies! So many images and colors really brought about that cozy fall feeling. It was a great treat in so many ways. It's hard to choose just one image when everyone worked so hard creating and baking and cooking (and in one case "latteing".) Could this be a new word? Hmmm.... To the DT...thank you! Your efforts made me smile, learn, see outside the box, and really inspire me to continue trying to do my best. You make it all look so easy...and as a new card maker I know it's not. I learned something from each one of you...I loved it all. This was such a fun new experience for me and I'm glad I participated! Please continue...I had a blast and I look forward to the next one already!
