STAMPlorations October Stamp Release Blog Hop

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to Day 1 of the STAMPlorations Stamp Release Blog Hop and Flash Fall Flowers Linky Party! Today we'll be shining the spotlight on FRIENDS AND FLOWERS by Dee's Artsy Impressions designs by Deepti.

Here is what I made using two of the three beautiful stamps from the set. First up is another one of my tall slim cards which I thought would suit the umbrella perfectly ...

I inked up an acrylic block with Tumbled Glass Distress ink and stamped it directly on my textured base card. I then added some stitching from the Graphic Squares set in Regal Rose, stamped my sentiment in black and attached my coloured and fuzzy cut umbrella to finish.

For my next card, I white embossed the watering can image on kraft card and coloured it with alcohol markers. Apart from that I used simple die cutting and layering to create this card ...

As always with a blog hop there are prizes to be won for commenting on the posts. Commenting will close on Sunday 25th October. You can also link up a floral themed project (one entry per person, you can use stamps from other companies) for an extra chance to win one of the sets from the release, the link up will close on the same day commenting closes, October 25th. The winners will be announced on October 27th.

Check out what the rest of the team made! You'll find links to all our projects here.

  • SEVEN (7) commenters randomly drawn from the designers' blogs will each win a $10 gift certificate.
  • ONE (1) commenter randomly drawn from the STAMPlorations blog will win a $25 gift certificate.
  • THREE (3) players randomly drawn from the Fall Flower Flash Linky Party will each win a stamp set from the new release.
That's it from me for today, back again tomorrow.

Have a lovely day!
