STAMPlorations Blog Hop!


STAMPlorations turns a year old this month and we're celebrating with a blog hop! We're also releasing the new stamps for July so it's a double celebration.



You should have arrived here from Debra's blog but if not, don't despair. Just click on the link below to start you back on the right track. You don't want to miss any!

The other STAMPlorations girls and I are sharing projects we created that feature the new stamps. And we've got 5 talented card-makers celebrating with us too! Visit all the stops on the hop and leave a comment for a chance to win stamps. We're giving away over $120 worth of stamps!

FOURTEEN (14) lucky hoppers randomly drawn from the designers' blogs will each win a stamp set and ONE (1) lucky hopper randomly drawn from the STAMPlorations blog will win all the stamps in the July release. You have until Wednesday, July 2, 11:55 p.m. PDT (GMT -700) to comment here and on my fellow designers' posts for a chance to win. Winners will be announced on the STAMPlorations blog on Sunday, July 6.

Here is my card for the blog hop -


I have just started using some stencils that I bought from STAMPlorations and am lurrrrrving them!! The shame about my photo is that you cannot see the gold I have added to this stencil.

I used texture paste with the Bubble Layering Stencil. Once it was dry, I laid the stencil back over the texture paste and spritzed Gold Smooch over the top. Then I sponged pink ink over that. In real life the textured bubbles have a beautiful gold shine to them.

I have used the Sketched Cupcake stamp and paired it up with a sentiment from the Vignette: Celebrate Artsy set. I gave the cupcake a quick wash of ink with a paint brush.

This blog hop is MEGA packed with prizes. Don't forget that you need to comment on all the Designer's blogs as there are prizes to be given away at each one!

The prize up for grabs from my blog is



Next on the hop is Maria !

Don't forget if you get lost, just start back at the STAMPlorations Blog.

Thanks so much for looking! xx
