STAMPlorations 3rd Birthday Blog Hop Day 4


Welcome back to day 4 of the STAMPlorations 3rd Birthday Blog Hop. I hope you have enjoyed the party so far, we have certainly enjoyed the wonderful projects you have been linking up. 


It wouldn't be a birthday party without prizes to win, and there are plenty of those! All prizes are randomly drawn and there will be prizes for commenting on the STAMPlorations blog and design team's blogs, prizes for liking, commenting, sharing and tagging a friend on the STAMPlorations Facebook page post and prizes for creating and linking up a party/celebration/birthday project based on the mood board below. For more info see the STAMPlorations 3rd Birthday Blog Hop post.


Today's card is focussed around the big and bold sentiment which I stamped in Versafine Onyx Black using the Sketchy Alphabet and the watercoloured with an ombre effect using Tim Holtz Distress Inks. I did the same with the balloons and banners from the aptly named Balloons and Banners stamp set. Last, I stamped some swirls from the same stamp set as the card looked a bit bare and I think it ended up looking much more festive.

Card: 300 gsm watercolour card
Stamps: STAMPlorations Balloons and Banners and Sketchy Alphabet
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Tim Holtz Distress Ink Mowed Lawn, Salty Ocean, Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserves

Disclaimer: I have received some STAMPlorations products for free in exchange for creating cards for the challenge. All opinions however are completely my own. As you can see by browsing my blog, I have been using STAMPlorations products (which I bought myself) way before my time on the DT and I wouldn't recommend them unless I absolutely loved them myself.
