Chinese Whispers Stampin' Up! Style


Today I have a blog hop for you, but a bit of a different blog hop.  A couple of months ago I was chopping up some DSP for a share and let my mind wander as I chopped.  It wandered to Sarah Klass's blog where she had blogged about how a group of her friends had all created cards one after the other, each inspired by the card before them.  She called it "Chinese Whispers of the Stampin' Up! kind". 

So as my mind wandered I thought it sounded like a great idea and proposed a game of Chinese Whispers to a group of Stampin' Up! friends.  They were keen to get on board and so I began the "whisper".

I made this card, and then emailed a photo to Kathryn Mangelsdorf.  She then made a card based on mine and emailed her photo to the next person on the list, and so on.  Each person only saw the card before theirs.  When the "whisper" reached the last person on the list I was able to reveal all the cards.  It was amazing to see how the "whisper" evolved as it went around the circle, and we wanted to share the fun and gorgeousness we all created.  There are 15 cards to show you, so please join in and hop around the blogs to see how the "whisper" progressed.

Here are the other blogs on the hop.  I recommend that you do the hop in order so that you can follow the evolution of the "whisper".  Some blogs feature more than one card as not all of the ladies who participated have blogs.
