STAMPlorations Birthday Blog Hop - Day 1

This is a very special Blog hop as STAMPlorations turns TWO :) I am super excited about this Blog hop for a few reasons, one I have my second stamp set "Party Mates" being introduced here, two I am so excited to see the cards my teamies have created, three we also have a fabulous line up of amazing Guest designers and last but not the least, we have tons of prizes...

I want to welcome our Guest Designer "AmyTsuruta" of Tsuruta Designs, I guess she needs no introduction, she is fabulous, her style is unique and trendy and she is a coffee lover ;)

THE PRIZES - 
Prizes for commenting on the STAMPlorations blog, STAMPlorations designers blogs, and guest designers blogs:
  • 1 winner of $25 gift certificate
  • 5 winners of $10 gift certificate

Prizes for linking up a party/celebration/birthday project:
  • 3 winners of the party stamp sets (1 winner of Party Mates, 1 winner of Party Time, 1 winner of PartyGirl)
  • 1 winner of $25 gift certificate (if STAMPlorations stamps/stencils are used) or $15 gift certificate (if non-STAMPlorations stamps/stencils are used)

And to add to the mix, I am also giving away one "Party mates" set to a random winner drawn from the comments made on my blog.

Now let me show you my very first project, I used Party Mates and Party Time set to create this card.
To make this, I took a water color card stock, heat embossed the cup cakes along the edge and then water colored it. I also heat embossed the cupcakes on a black card stock and fuzzy cut it along the upper edge. I added this layer to the water colored base. Added the sentiment on a panel to finish my card.

Don't forget to comment on this post and rest of the hop, HERE and link up your own celebration- or party-themed cards using the inspiration mood board below to win one of several prizes. (Linky will be found on all 5 birthday blog hop posts.) Commenting and linking close on Monday, July 6. Winners are announced on Tuesday, July 7.

Enjoy the party and hop with us ! 
Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving me a comment.
