  1. Mirella says:

    Great news on the hop and a fab creation! Totally agree with this stamp! 🙂 off I go hopping so!

  2. Michele says:

    Now this is an exciting hop—I adore your images. And that sentiment is TRUE!!! Great artists, great design work with great images!!

  3. Angie Brown says:

    This was fun! I just don’t know how to pick a favorite stamp, there are so many that I just love. Young Love is definitely one of my favorites so I’ll go with that one. ?

  4. Amy Young says:

    Fab card, love the layout and mix of prints that you put together… so pretty!

    It’s too hard to choose a favorite stamp but my current favorite SB stamp is probably Sally Rides her Snail, I adore that image!

  5. Kathy J in Ellicott City says:

    I love all the bellas. I haven’t seen one I don’t need to own. I am slowly getting them all.

  6. Jane Crisci says:

    Hi Em! One of my favorite stamps is Buddy and Jolly.
    The boys are just so adorable!

  7. Robyn says:

    I love all StampingBella but especially I enjoy the color maps. I might change some colors but seeing how it was made originally is great fun!

  8. Barbara Ray says:

    Congrats you are certainly getting out there…I forward to you what I can. I love to stamp because it is not only relaxing but I am able to give to others.

  9. Heather C. says:

    Oooohhh…How exciting!

  10. D.Ann C says:

    Sweet! Love that the card combines with your happiness making prize! : )
    That’s a lot better than the cold soup vichyssoise … Just HAD to add the only thing I could think of that rhymed. : )
    Ok.. Tah-tah

  11. Cathy P. says:

    Congrats to you on this big news, Emily! Your question is unfair – who can pick just one as a favorite. i don’t think I could even pick 1 character or artist! Cathy P.

  12. SUSAN JACOBS says:

    What a beautiful hop. All the cards were beautiful but I liked
    Uptown Girl Fiona loves flowers the best. Thanks for a chance to win some of your lovely work.

  13. TinaS says:

    Hi Emily,
    I agree with Cathy P. – it’s not fair to choose only one favorite 😉 My favorites are the Uptown Girls and the new Tiny Townies…also Petunia and friends and Christine Grove’s images are cool, too…*sigh*
    AND I am one who says HECK (a lot) and I’m German…*giggle*
    I love stamping and coloring because it let me come down and forget the busy and not so fun daily things…it’s like a therapy most of the time…and a bonus if it’s good enough (in my eyes) to give it to someone who needs some color in life, too…;)
    Thanks for your all time funny blog posts 🙂
    Hugs from Germany,

  14. Emily D. says:

    What a wonderful hop.

    Um – I could not leave a comment on Stephanie Hill’s Post. Not sure if anyone else had the problem.

  15. Linda Gorman says:

    I love all of your stamps. I just made 40 invitations to my daughter in law’s baby shower using “It’s Girl Time”. They turned out amazing!

  35. Lynette N says:

    I love how all your stamps seem to have a story/character of its own, and not standalone figures that we see in most stamps. Your cards are awesome too!

  36. I love all the Bella Stamps, but my favorite are the Uptown Girls!

  37. Amanda Fluri says:

    The hope is incredible. Some true talent on this design team. They do your stamps total justice! Thanks for the amazing inspiration! I cannot wait to get my hands on some of your new stamps!
