STAMPlorations Birthday Hop

Hi Everyone,

STAMPlorations  is turning 4!!! And that is one big reason to celebrate! Amazing how this little company has grown - all due to the dedication, hard work and incredibly creative mind of Shery Russ - the owner and driving force behind it!
It has been such an honor to stay on the DT almost since the beginnings. I think I never will grow tired of it :)



And here are my cards showcasing some of the new products:


This gorgeous stamp is called Blossom Sprays #3, designed by Deepti. I colored it lightly and added a generous amount of Wink of Stella - you can see it better in the obliqued photo. Die cut the word die and raised it with die cut fun foam. The border is the stitched nesting die.


For my second card I used the Radiant Roses from the In Bloom Series.


Water colored it and added spatters. I used the same "beautiful" die cut as on my first card and also die cut the large YOU from a background I made with acrylic paints.


Now there is many prizes you can win:
  • Three (3) randomly drawn winners from all comments left on the STAMP blog and participating designers blog will each receive a $25 gift certificate to the store
  • One (1) randomly drawn winner from comments left on our Facebook page will win a grab bag consisting of new products worth up to $30
  • One (1) randomly drawn winner from comments left on our Instagram page will win a grab bag consisting of new products worth up to $30
  • Two (2) randomly drawn winners from the Wishlist Link Up will each win the products in their wish list (up to $50 MSRP)
Wishlist Link Up mechanics:

  • Participants must go to stamplorations.com, create an account, and add items to their wishlist. Then they add the link to their wishlist to the Inlinkz on the blog.
  • Wishlist link up will open a week before the blog hop, on June 19. That post will contain the link up + step-by-step & a short video on how to link up their wishlist.

Diese Karte ist eine echte Frauen-Karte! So zart und zerbrechlich, wie weibliche Wesen manchmal sind (Männer aber auch manchmal!!! sie zeigen es nur nicht)
Schön, dass du wieder bei NSS dabei bist.
Liebe Grüße
