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 five talented card makers celebrating with us too!

Visit all the stops on the hop and leave a comment for a chance to win stamps. Shery's giving away over $120 worth of stamps!

Take a gander at the graphic of all six new stamp sets up top. See the set on the far right? It's called VIGNETTE: It's your day. This is what I did with it.


Inked up the wonky cake two-toned and stamped my BG. Heat embossed the subway art sentiment square as is (you could selectively ink it to use the sentiments individually too) onto blue CS and trimmed a square of vellum to offset behind it. Layed down some silver metallic thread strung with sequins before adhering the sentiment with foam adhesive. I added a smidgen of glue behind most of the sequins to keep them where I wanted them ;)

So here are the deets. Fourteen (14) lucky hoppers randomly drawn from the designers' blogs will each win a stamp set - here on my blog you can win the VIGNETTE: Chevron and Arrows set which I personally love.


And one lucky hopper randomly drawn from the STAMPlorations blog will win ALL six stamps in the July release. You have until Wednesday, July 2, 11:55 p.m. PDT to comment here and on my fellow DTs' posts for your chance to win. Winners will be announced Sunday, July 6 on the STAMPlorations blog. BTW, if you love a good deal, Shery's got one going on for the new release. And starting July 7, I'll be doing another "Exploration STAMPlorations" series with the new release so do come back.
