STAMPlorations 4th birthday blog hop - day 1


There's a humongojumbo party going on this week to celebrate four years of STAMPlorations! Congratulations, Shery, on where you've taken STAMPlorations over the past four years. And thanks to Kat for letting you do it ;)  I'm honored to have been around for the ride.

In celebration of Birthday #4 Shery has created a humongojumbo release. And a humongojumbo blog hop (OK, I'll stop now ;) to show you all the goodies (see 'em in that graphic?) at work.

I've got a couple projects to share with you today, so let's get to it.

You may have seen my Spotlight about using kids' markers to color your stamps. Well I've done that again today, this time with a cool, new sentiment stamp, Celebration Word....


I colored each letter of the stamp with random colors of waterbased markers, spritzed it and stamped it onto a white cardbase. I spritzed it again and stamped it again and got this next one which I think would work for a baby card, don't you? There's a matching die, BTW!


Then I had some fun creating a party on a card cuz I couldn't wait to showcase this Prosit Word die. It happens to be one of my very favorite words ;) And BTW, it also comes in stamp form!


I tried out a combo of watercolors and Copic markers as I'd seen Kelly L. do in this video. With all those champagne glasses from Party Mates I had to add lots of champagne bubbles, right? Including sparkly golden ones.


There's so much eye candy coming at you over at STAMPlorations this week. Believe me, you won't want to miss it all.

Shery's offering all products in the store at 15% off during the celebration - until July 7. Add my discount code STAMPGIRLMARIA for an additional 20% off!

 And what's a birthday celebration without presents? You know how generous Shery is. There will be gift certificates. And grab bags. You might even win your Wishlist!!! How's that for fun? Help us celebrate, won't you? You can check out all the deets here.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Check out my Instagram page for a little giveaway in celebration of STAMPlorations too ;)

beautiful cards :) love the cas designs and the last card with the orange hues is so artsy and gorgeous, love it!

Craftyfield said...

The CAS card is indeed perfect for a baby and quick to make for some of these early arrivals! I do love your second one, maybe because of that promise of champagne and lovely bubbles...

Jane said...

Oh that second spritzing of congrats is just gorgeous, definitely perfect for a baby card, but then so is the first brighter one! And the hot spicy and feisty colours of the champagne glasses are mesmerising.
