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:

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time...

The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey.

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
