I don’t usually post three times in one week but today we have something to celebrate. We’re officially releasing another new stamp series today so we’re having a blog hop to show off some of the new images… and give you an opportunity to win the stamps!

This new series is called Beautiful Days. These stamps are great for nature lovers and are just begging to be colored. Images include a hummingbird with cat, a peacock, butterfly with daisies, dragonflies with water lilies, bee with hydrangea, and of course a lovely sentiment to pair with any of these.

The Rock Star’s have created some beautiful cards with these new stamps! You won’t want to miss a thing. To participate in the hop all you have to do is visit the blogs of all the Rock Stars listed. (I have provided their links below, but do be sure to refer to their RI Blog Hop posts if you are joining in later in the weekend.) On each blog, you will find a key letter. After you collect all the letters, use the letters to create the proper word and then email it to me (wendy@repeatimpressions.com) to be eligible for the blog candy.

You must complete the hop and email me the correct word no later than 5pm eastern time on Sunday, June 3rd. The blog candy for this hop… an unmounted sheet of the new Beautiful Days stamps of course! I will announce the winner of the blog candy in my Monday blog post.

I think you will really enjoy this hop. The Rock Stars have created some fantastic cards to introduce the new line. :-) So here are the links to their blogs…
