STAMPlorations Giving Thanks Blog Hop.

Hi Everyone,

its Giving Thanks Blog Hop at STAMPlorations!
The STAMPloration girls and a lot of guest designers have all come together in this hop to express our gratitude. I am so grateful for Shery the owner of STAMPlorations to have given me a chance to join her DT three years ago - it was my first company DT and it still is my favorite to be on! If you visit and leave comments on the stops in the hop by Friday, November 27, you could win your choice of (4x6) stamp set from STAMPlorations

In the graphic above you see all the participating Blogs.
You may have arrive from the amazing Trish Latimer - has has quite a wonderful card for you! You don't want to miss it just in case you have not yet seen it.

I made this car stamping and heat embossing on Yupo paper and coloring with alcohol inks. You get really vibrant colors that way. And the colors blend  - ideal for people with limited coloring skills like myself....I do have a die cut for the stamp, but I preferred to fuzzy cut - I did not want a white border around this image.


I used the stamp set and stitched die from the Be Thankful Bundle. I took the FOR EVERYTHING stamp and stamped it repeatedly onto Kraft card stock with my Misti as background. I used a stitched border die to give some outline to my card.The die cut THANKFUL I sponged in an ombre pattern. Glued the apples on top of my background and added the thankful.

Your next stop on the hop is Melissa Lane - always a treat to see her creations!

 I hope you'll check out what the rest of the team made. You can find links to all the Giving Thanks projects in this post.
Here are all the participating designers:

Feeling blessed and grateful that you've designed this gorgeous card to dazzle and delight us! The repeated background stamp is such a marvelous added touch! As for that basket of apples: delicious! I found an Old Fashioned Apple Cake recipe (with brown sugar frosting, no less!) they'd be perfect for. *grin* LOVE this!

Easter Egg and Bunny

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... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. 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
