STAMPlorations Birthday Blog Hop Day 4

Hi Everyone,
Welcome to the STAMPlorations 2nd Birthday Blog Hop Celebrations. Yes, STAMPlorations is celebrating its 2nd birthday and true to form we, the STAMPlorations Girls, are having a party and you are invited. to join us for 5 days of blog hop fun. Each day we'll be joined by a different guest designer ... and today the talented lady joining us is TAHEERAH ATCHA from Newton's Nook Designs.

Shery, Deepti and Shirley designed one stamp set each to celebrate this special birthday occasion. These are the sets we'll be using throughout our celebratory hop. For my fourth project I decided to work with Party Time and Party Mates again to create this 'confetti sprinkled' card with lots of fun spritzing:

I stamped, coloured (Spectrum Noir) and masked the gift parcels, stamped the chevrons from the Mixed Media Grunge set, added lots of spritzing as my confetti, stamped my sentiment, layered on my base card and finished off with sequins.

Here is another look ...

Back to the blog hop ...

There are two ways you can join us in the celebrations and ways to be entered into prize draws, firstly by hopping along and leaving comments on our posts and secondly by joining in at our Linky Party over at the STAMPlorations Blog by linking up your party themed cards inspired by this photograph:
