Stamplorations - Birthday Blog Hop & Linky Party




Hi there ~ Today is a special day for Stamplorations...they are celebrating their 2nd birthday, and what's a birthday without a Blog Hop, a Linky Party and Prizes, right?

Three new party-themed stamp sets are being showcased, and I am the lucky owner of one of these sets ~ "Party Mates" by Dee's Artsy Impressions! Deepti has really out-done herself with this set...so many fun party images, just waiting to be colored! Here is my first card:



I've been really inspired by all of the cards Kathy has created during her 30 day Color Challenge, and when I saw This Card, I thought it would be fun to CASE her design with Deepti's new stamp set. I added a generous coat of Wink of Stella to the frosting on the cupcakes and to the ribbon and bow on the gift. The sentiment is from PTI.

 I love this set so much, that I decided to create another card:


More Copic coloring with these fun images, and a touch of Bitty Dot Ribbon (which I rarely use on my projects). The Impression Plate and sentiment are from PTI.

Since I've done a lot of coloring for this post, I would like to link my cards up to Kathy's 30 Color Challenge, as well. 

Thanks so much for stopping by ~
