A big hop happening over at STAMPlorations today: the 3rd Annual Giving Thanks Blog Hop and Wishlist Linky Party. There are 35 participating designers in the hop (8 awesome guest designers representing various challenge blogs), a linky party for you to share your STAMPlorations wishlist + up to 3 thankful/gratitude projects, and tons of prizes up for grabs.


This is the last stop in the hop and you should have arrived here from Nonni's blog.

I made 2 one layer cards using 2 of the 11 new products for the hop: Gratitude is the Blossom and Something to be Thankful For from the Typografia Thankful line. (I also used stamps from Mixed Media Grunge and Scribbly Splattery Grunge.)



I hope you'll check out the event and see the projects that the other designers made. You have until the end of the month to leave comments and link up your wishlist, as well as a project or two of your own. You'll find all the details here. Plus if you scroll down some more, you'll find links to all the designers.

Paper craft project no. 507: Life is an adventure



Hello! Here's a card for the new challenge at Time Out. For the next two weeks, the challenge is Home Sweet Home, where we have this inspiration photo:

21 Ways to Make the Industrial Look Work for You including brick veneer, pallet coffee tables and map walls:

I took my inspiration from the colors, that rustic table that looks like a suitcase, and the big map in the background to create my one-layer card. I stamped the stack of suitcases and sentiment (Born to Roam), then masked the suitcases before stamping the various grunge background (Mixed Media Elements, Mixed Media Grunge). I gave the suitcases a bit of color with PrismaColor pencils and the card is done.

Check out the cards that the TO team + guest designer Trinia made and then come play with us! STAMPlorations is sponsoring the challenge. The winner (voted by the design team) will receive a $15 gift certificate.

Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to smile :o)

Paper craft project no. 506: Do what you love


Popping by with a card I made for the new challenge over at AAA CardsSTAMPlorations is sponsoring, and for the next two weeks the theme is rainbow. What a fun theme!


To create my one layer card, I started with one of the dies in the Curly Labels/Tags set to create a curly-curvy bottom edge. Then I took one of the brush stroke stamps in Mixed Media Elements and stamped it in rainbow colors down the left side. Then I stamped the sentiment (Do What You Love) in dark blue ink + stamped the ink splatter stamp from Art Marks a couple of times in orange and green and the card's done.

I hope you'll join the AAA Cards design team and link up your  clean and simple cards based on the theme. The winner will receive two stamp sets from the Say It Big series (Do What You Love and Choose Happy) and two randomly drawn winners will each receive a $5 gift certificate to the STAMPlorations store.

Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to smile :o)
