Happy Birthday to You .... Happy Birthday to You ......

Happy Birthday dear STAMPlorations
Happy Birthday to You!!!

Happy Wednesday folks ......

It's been a while since I blogged ....... but the holiday is over and things are getting back to normal again.

It's a very special day today ...... STAMPlorations is 3 years old ... whoo hoo!!!  and it's party time.
Over the next few days Shery is holding a Birthday Blog Hop to celebrate along with a Linky Party so you can all join in the fun.


There's a special stamp release to mark the occasion ..... Kathryn's Big Wishes by Dee's Artsy Impressions and lots of other new goodies too .... see those matching dies!!!
There's also prizes up for grabs .... comment on the blog posts and link up to the party to be in with a chance of winning.  You'll find all the details on the STAMPlorations blog
Commenting closes on July 5th and the winners will be announced on July 7th .......  so come on, join in the fun.  Use the mood board below to inspire you to create a project with a party/bithday theme, post it on your blog, along with the mood board and link to the party ..... simple


I've been playing with the new stamps, and they're so much fun ......


You can't have a party without balloons ..... lots of them!


I simply stamped the large balloon and embossed using Ranger's Liquid Platinum embossing powder. I made a mask for the balloon and continued to stamp the image across my piece of card.
They were coloured using Copic Markers, and I finished them off with a touch of  clear Wink of Stella


The strings are from Dee's Balloons and Banners set


and the words are from a set called Party Time


You can see I've added a touch of colour to the background using my favourite acetate smooshing technique ..... and there's also a little something on the inside


Are you in the party mood now? ....... remember create a project with a birthday/party theme,  post it on your blog, or Flickr, Instagram etc., and link it up to the STAMPlorations page.  Show the mood board in your post, comment on the STAMPlorations Blog and the DT posts  to be in with a chance of winning one of the fab prizes.

Thanks for popping by .... enjoy the rest of your day.

Cheerio until next time ....
