STAMPlorations 3rd Birthday Blog Hop!

Can you believe it?  STAMPlorations is celebrating its 3rd birthday!!  I'm so happy to be a part of this big day!  We've got a fun birthday blog hop starting today until Tuesday (July 5th).  We are introducing a super sweet new stamp set design by STAMPlorations girl, Deepti.  It's called Kathryn's Big Wishes. There are lots of prizes to be won and a fun Linky so you can join in too!





This hop is also for introducing a brand new product for STAMPlorations. CUTplorations thin metal dies!!  How exciting!  Us STAMP girls have some fantastic projects to share with you over the next week and I hope you'll go check them all out!  So, here's what I came up with for today....




I just love this adorable, fun set Deepti created.  So many possibilities!  For this card, I stamped my girl in black Memento ink. Using the same ink, I stamped my balloons (the big balloon is from Kathryn's Big Wishes set and the smaller balloons are from Balloons and Banners set) masking where I needed too. I coloured in the girl and balloons using my Spectrum Noir markers. I stamped, coloured and fussy cut a couple of balloons out and raised them up with foam dots.  I added the balloon strings by hand with a black marker.  I added some Wink of Stella to the purple balloons. I stamped the big sentiment (Hope Blooms set) and smaller sentiment (Kathryn's Big Wishes) in black Versamark ink.

So, come over over to the STAMPlorations blog and join in on the fun!  Here's all the details:

All prizes will be randomly drawn using Random.org

  9. How adorable is your Kathryn + balloons card! Soooo incredibly sweet! Have to add: I *have* to say: I'm soooo stoked that die-cuts are joining the STAMPlorations line-up..perfect for my die-cutting obsession! Just wish Canada Post wasn't threatening a strike! How am I going to get some of those gems to my place fast? Maybe the strike won't happen...fingers crossed!
