House of Cards Blog Hop and DT Call

BEFORE WE START--we'd like you all to know that this blog hop is also a DT CALL!!!  
If you're interested in working with us a HOC for a six month term from July 2014 through January of 2015 please put DT at the end of your entry name when you link up!!!  
We're looking for crafters comfortable in any card making style and it might just be YOU!  You will be contacted by June 18th  to know if you've made the team. :)   Each DT member will just be in charge of one or two cards/projects per month plus commenting.  Please email Mynn at onastampageATyahooDOTcom if you have any other questions!  And now...

Hi friends!  Can you believe we've come to the end of our second term here at House of Cards?!  We are saying a fond farewell to some of our DT members and feel so grateful to those staying on.  To say goodbye and thank you, we're celebrating with a blog hop!  

This hop will run FROM JUNE 2ND UNTIL JUNE 15TH,  ANY CARD STYLE is welcome and we've got a gorgeous photo inspiration for your crafting enjoyment! 

Here's our photo inspiration:

You probably arrived here from the fabulously talented Ruth

Here is my card for you, using stamps from our sponsor STAMPlorations:

I used stamps from one of our fabulous sponsors - STAMPlorations. I actually used three sets here: Stamplorations - Eclectic Florals, Subway Art Builders - MOM #4, Sentiment Builder Happy

The cork banner is from my stash of  TOSICOR (things on sale I couldn't resist) and the  flower vase I made with an embossing folder - first embossed it, then swiped Versamark over the raised areas and heat embossed it in white. See - it mimics that basket in the inspiration photo.

The idea of making a vase this way is from Kelly Griglione - she posted that a long time ago on her fabulous blog Notable Nest. I'm sure you know Kelly - if not check out her blog, its simply amazing! And tell her I sent you ;)

I am linking this card with Simon Says Wednesday challenge - Anything goes

So, before you continue hopping I'll show you our fabulous sponsors!  Make sure you leave a comment at each person's blog along the way because the prizes are hidden and we'll be doing random drawings from the blogs where they are hiding! :)  After you're done, make a creation to share with us here, too, for another chance to win!

Prize: 5 stamps sets--your choice--from the shop.

Hey there! David and I (Shery) are a husband-and-wife team and we own and manage STAMPlorations™ from our home office in Central California. I'm an avid paper crafter and I love graphic design, so in June 2013, my husband and I launched our home-based stamp company featuring my designs.
All of our stamps are proudly made in the USA. Our rubber stamps are deep-etched and made from high quality rubber, while our clear stamps are made from the finest, non-yellowing photopolymer resin and they're naturally sticky. They're environmentally friendly too because biodegradable materials were used in the manufacture of these stamps. With proper use and care, you can expect our clear stamps to last as long as rubber stamps -- years!
Through our stamp line, we hope to encourage crafters of all ages and experience levels to "Stamp with all your ART!".

Stitchy Bear

Prize: $10 gift voucher to the shop.

We are proud to say that we have been in business, serving our customers since 2010.
We have a very large and talented group of Digital Creators who sell their products in our store and who regularly upload new products. You will find something new almost daily.

And now, here's your hop order~
