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.

And here is my card...
I used the yummy CUPCAKE Stamp.. I just love this stamp, isn't it FABULOUS... and did a little watercolouring on the stamped images.
The sentiment is from the Simple Gift Stamp.
I have long admired fellow DT girl Shirley-bee and the way she does splotchy water colouring and have been itching to give this go- so this is my take on her technique... Thanks for inspiration Shirley.
I used gesso thru a Memory Box stencil and while still wet added some ultra fine glitter.... followed by some bling, candle dies. I stamped the sentiment with a Adirondack grey ink.
 
To check out all the NEW STAMPS at STAMPlorations I have included the link to take you directly there...HERE...
 
The prize being offered on my blog  for one lucky commenter is the Fabulous...
