STAMPlorations September Stamp Release Blog Hop

Hi Everyone - so sorry for being late for the blog hop, but here it is - my post:

STAMPlorations is having another Stamp Release Blog Hop!


You probably arrived from the so amazingly creative Vicki Dutcher here.

And here is the card I made for it:



I used the beautiful Poinsettia stamp from the set Holiday Sketches - Christmas Flower and stamped it on watercolor paper. I then sprinkled Brusho on it and misted it with water. I also touched up the poinsettia a bit with Inktense pencils, outlined some of the leaves wiht a white pen and lastly added Stickles in the center. The sentiments are from the same set. 

Here are the stops in the hop:
Cornelia | Debra | Deepti | Kylie | Maria | Monika | Nonni | Shery | Shirley |Vicki

Your next stop on the hop is Debra, which always has a special visual treat for you! You don't want to miss her blog!

Out wonderful DT has amazing card to show you and whet your appetite for those gorgeous new stamps ;) Visit all the stops on the hop and leave a comment for a chance to win prizes! By the way, our 5 Christmas-themed stamp sets are available in the shop as a special release bundle for a limited time.

Okay, here's how the hop works:

  • THREE (3) lucky hoppers will be randomly drawn from the designers' blogs to win the stamp set of their choice from the new release.
  • ONE (1) lucky hopper will be randomly drawn from the STAMPlorations blog to win a $25 gift certificate to use in the shop.
  • If you are picked as one of the winners, you have 3 days to email us and claim your prize.

So, are you ready to hop? Simply leave a comment on the STAMPlorations blog site and on all the designers' blog hop posts between now and Monday, September 15, 11:55 p.m. PDT (GMT-700). (Only one comment per blog, please.) We'll announce the winners on Thursday, September 18 on the STAMPlorations site.  How easy is that? Have fun!

(Note: There are 11 stops in the hop, including this blog. You're not required to visit every stop on the hop to be eligible, but commenting on all the stops will increase your chances of winning.

In case you click on a designer's link and you get a page/post not found error, just go to their main blog and scroll down to find their post titled "STAMPlorations September Release Blog Hop". You can also go back here to our main blog; we'll update the links throughout the day.)
