STAMPlorations 3rd birthday blog hop - day 4


Joining the party again today! STAMPlorations is celebrating Birthday #3.  Keep watching for the product line coming to the store. DIES!!! We'll be showcasing them starting tomorrow!

In celebration of Birthday #3 this is the stamp set released for the party.

Kathryn's Big Wishes
For today's card I chose the big candle and decided to work the lollipop into my design too.


Stamped the lollipop creating a border. Heat embossed the candle black and watercolored it with Gansai Tambi using my chosen primary color scheme. Love how the red drip looks like dripping wax! Achieved that by tipping my card a bit while the watercolors were mingling. Two-tone heat embossed my sentiment and added a row of black sequins for some texture and shine.


So now it's your turn. There's a linky party with prizes over on the blog, as well as more inspiration from the DT. And there's a sale going on too! Help us celebrate won't you?


I'm helping the crew over at Addicted to Stamps and More celebrate their 4th birthday too! Here's to many more.
