STAMPlorations 3rd Birthday Blog Hop

Good afternoon all.


STAMPlorations is three today and to celebrate we're having a birthday blog hop + linky party, and we'd love you all to join us by either (or both) commenting on the team’s blogs or joining our linky party for a chance to win one of the prizes. Commenting closes on July 5, 11:55 p.m. Pacific. Winners will be announced on July 7.



I've used the brand new Kathryn’s Big Wishes for my cards. At first sight this set is very cutsie and girly but I needed some birthday cards for a couple of nephews so used the sentiment along with the Art Splatters stencil and Art Marks stamps to get this grungy finish. Thank goodness for the bit box as I didn't actually have any card in the house!!



To join the linky party create something inspired by the mood board (up to 3 per player; new projects only; any/all products welcome). Our mood board must be displayed in your blog post and you must link to any of the 7 blog hop posts to qualify for the prizes).  Linky will be open from June 29th to July 5th.

  5. Lovely card! Can we still call it a CAS card with all the splotches? I like ink splats stamps or stencil, so much more controllable than the real thing!
