Giving Thanks Blog Hop

Hi there everyone!

I am very proud to be joining in a very special blog hop - My cards today are for a special blog hop we're having over at STAMPlorations. The STAMPlorations girls and friends have come together for the Giving Thanks blog hop. We're sharing projects that express our gratitude. If you visit and leave comments on the stops in the hop by the 27th of November you could win your choice of (4x6) stamp set from STAMPlorations.

 I am representing my challenge blog Addicted to Stamps and More

I was sent a fantastic goody bag from Shery so I could showcase her fabulous new release.

Here is the cool set I was sent to play with -



For the first card, I stamped the image in jet black archival ink. I let it dry completely then coloured it in by sprinkling Brushos onto my craft mat, misting them with water and picking up the colour with a brush.

I made a 'smooshed' panel from my Orange brusho and used it to die cut my sentiment.

I also die cut the sentiment three times in black cardstock and glued them altogether to give it wonderful dimension. 

Orange brusho splats with created by flicking my paintbrush finished off this card.


I stamped the sentiment in different colours and die cut it three times.

I loved how this card turned out in its own simplicity. 


The stencil in this pack is awesome! I used my red glitter texture paste to create my panel.

I  'played' with the sentiments to basically create a Valentines Card. 

I wasn't quite able to catch the sparkle of this card but believe me it is gorgeous!


I couldn't help but watercolour again with this image. 

Once the image was dry, I die cut it and used foam squares to pop it up. I stamped the Sentiment in jet black and then used my paintbrush once again to create my splats.

I had so much fun playing with my STAMPloration goodies! Thank you to Shery for being such a wonderful sponsor for Addicted to Stamps and More! and Addicted to CAS (which is being represented by the amazing Barb Ghig!).
