3rd Annual STAMPlorations Giving Thanks Blog Hop and Wishlist Linky Party

Hello everyone… WELCOME to the 3rd Annual STAMPlorations Giving Thanks Blog Hop and Wishlist Linky Party. This is a special blog hop with 36 participating designers showcasing the 11 news stamp sets. And there are prizes to win! So let’s… get blog-hopping!

This blog hop starts at STAMPlorations Blog, where you can read the full details on the blog hop and wish list linky party. Many chances to win the prizes… The full list of participant blogs is at the end of my blog post.

For this blog hop, I created 2 projects showcasing the new stamp set, Wonderfall Time stamp set, designed by Sherry Russ. There are 18 pieces of Fall/Thanksgiving themed, clear stamps in this set.

The first project is a mixed media tag. I cut out the tag using the ATC Tag Builder Die Set and heavy weight white cardstock. I applied some of the clear gesso on the tag using old credit card. I dried it with my craft heater.

Next step, I added some of the Distress Crayons on top of the tag, blended with my finger, and I sprayed with some water while holding it right side up on top of a paper towel. This way the ink run down the tag to create the background. Then, I added some of the Vintage Photo Distress Ink along the edge of the tag.

After the background dried, I stamped the leaves and pumpkin with Ranger Black Archival Ink Pad. And then I colored the pumpkin with Arteza Real Brush Pens and watercolor brush.

Last step, I stamped the sentiment with the same ink on the tag, and then I stamped the sentiment on a white paper strip, and added some Vintage Distress ink to colored it. I added the sentiment trip on the tag with strong liquid adhesive.

For my second project, I created this card with the same stamp set. First I cut out the tag using the same die ATC Tag Die set, and then stamped the background with Memento Dew Drop – Desert Sand.

I scribble some Distress Crayons on a white card stock to create the Fall colors, I stamped the leaves and fussy cut them with micro-tip scissors. I added the leaves on the tag with mini stapler.

And then I stamped the sentiment on another white cardstock, cut them out into banner and paper strip. I added the banner on the tag with mini stapler, too.

To make the card, I cut out some of the Fall theme patterned paper from Close To My Heart (expired), added them on a kraft  card base with adhesive. And them I added the tag on the card with thin 3D foam tape and then I added the other sentiment paper strip with thick 3D foam tape. And I finished the card with wrapping some of the natural twine ribbon.

Those are my projects to share with you for this Giving Thanks Blog Hop! I hope they inspire you to create today!
