STAMPlorations Birthday 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. 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.


I've used the text block from Vignette: It's Your Day to make my background, then stamped the cake from the same set, sloshed some Distress Ink watercolours on and fussy cut it. Love that cake!  I mopped up the Distress Ink pools with the large swoosh stamp from Vignette: Celebrate Artsy then overstamped it with the Celebrate from Sentiment Builders: Celebrate.  And splatted.  Love splatting.

Don't forget to comment on each step of the hop.  Leave a comment here and you'll be in with a chance of winning the Sentiment Builders: Happy set.
