STAMPlorations Birthday Blog Hop

STAMPlorations turns a year old this month and we're celebrating with a blog hop! We're also releasing the new stamps for July so it's a double celebration. The other STAMPlorations girls and I are sharing projects we created that feature the new stamps. And we've got 5 talented card-makers celebrating with us too! Visit all the stops on the hop and leave a comment for a chance to win stamps. We're giving away over $120 worth of stamps!



FOURTEEN (14) lucky hoppers randomly drawn from the designers' blogs will each win a stamp set and ONE (1) lucky hopper randomly drawn from the STAMPlorations blog will win all the stamps in the July release. You have until Wednesday, July 2, 11:55 p.m. PDT (GMT -700) to comment here and on my fellow designers' posts for a chance to win. Winners will be announced on the STAMPlorations blog on Sunday, July 6.

And here's my card:


I used the Vignette: Its your Day and the Sentiment Builder Celebrate to create this card. The frame I stamped stamped using Holiday artsy and added some Stickles to the little dots. I stamped the birthday cake twice and punched out some parts and colored them in. I attached them with foam tape ti give it some dimension.

One lucky commenter on my blog will win my absolute favorite stamp set - the Vignette: Retro Mod Shapes


This is the most versatile set of all times - I have used it over and over again. If you need some inspirations you can check out the cards I made with it HERE.


And here are the stops in the hop:

Design Team:
Cornelia (you are here) | Debra | Kylie | Maria | Monika | Nonni | Shery | Shirley | Vicki
Guest Designers:

You can buy all the new stamps in the shop during the hop. All 6 sets are $30 (17% off) + free shipping in the US (flat rate to other countries).
Now have FUN hopping!
