STAMPlorations Stamp Release Blog Hop

I am so excited! This is the first STAMPlorations blog hop I can be part of


and I am so glad you can join us in the STAMPlorations Stamp Release Blog Hop! The other STAMPlorations girls and I are sharing projects we've created that feature the 5 sets released this month. Visit all the stops on the hop and leave a comment for a chance to win 1 of the new stamp sets!

FIVE (5) lucky hoppers randomly drawn from the designers' blogs will each win a stamp set and TWO (2) lucky hoppers randomly drawn from the STAMPlorations blog will win a stamp set of their choice. You have until Sunday, May 11, 11:55 p.m. PDT to comment here and on my fellow designers' posts for a chance to win. Winners will be announced on the STAMPlorations blog on Monday, May 12.

And here are my cards:



For this card I was also using the Distressed Damask Background by STAMPlorations. The panel with the HAPPY's I sponged with distress inks on water color paper and then dripped water on it. I did the same thing with the THANKS panel below.


For this card I also used a background stamp by Impression Obsession.

So go and start hopping - our talented DT has amazing inspirations for you:

 Cornelia - you are HERE
 Debra 



The new stamps will be available to buy on the shop during the hop. Each set is $6.50. All 5 sets are $25 (28% off) + free shipping in the US (flat rate to other countries).

Challenges I am playing in:

My first card:
Retrosketches #113 -                  Friday Mashup - used the colors
           


My second card:
Just us Girls                                  Keep it Simple - both cards
