STAMPlorations Mixed Media Tutorial – With all Thine Heart Calendar

Hi! I’m here with a quick post to share that I have a new mixed media tutorial up at the STAMPlorations blog.

Please head on over there to see the process (double masking, lots of stenciling and messy fun!) that I used to make the calendar page below.

 

STAMPlorations™ BlogI used the following STAMPlorations products for this tutorial:

STAMPlorations 2017 Giving Thanks and Wishlist Linky Party Blog Hop

Hi! Welcome and thanks for stopping by! I’m happy to be here for a special event for STAMPlorations. It is STAMPlorations’ 3rd Annual Giving Thanks Blog Hop. This year there are lots of great creations to behold and prizes galore.

We have representatives from some of your favorite challenge Blogs joining us for this hop.

For the projects, the participating designers used 11 new stamp sets designed particularly for this hop: three 4×6 sets (Thankful & Blessed, Wonderfall Time, and Words of Gratitude) and 8 Typografia: Thankful stamps (Full of Thanksgiving, Giving, Gratitude is the Blossom, Something to be Thankful for, Thankful People, Thy Goodness, Unknown Blessings, and We Have Enough).

There are also a good number of other NEW Stamps. Check out the entire Typografia series.

You should be hopping here from Ina Grehan’s post.

I am featuring 2 new Typografia Thankful, Gratitude is the BlossomSomething to be Thankful For, stamps. I also used a bunch of other STAMPlorations products. (Please see the bottom of this post for all of the products used.)

Here’s my first of 2 cards.

There are 2 parts to this event:
  1. a blog hop with 36 stops (including this blog) where you can leave a little word of encouragement and thanks to the designers; and
  2. a wishlist linky party where you can link up your wishlist, as well as up to 3 projects you create that express how thankful and/or grateful you are.

The hop and linky are open until the end of the month so you can take your time hopping and linking up.

And here’s my second card.

Check out the surprise note under the movable top panel.

I wonder if the recipient will discover the surprise?

I hope that you enjoyed your visit and enjoy the rest of the hop as well. You should be off to Sandie Munroe’s post now.

Thanks for stopping by!

Grace & Peace,

To make this tag, I used the ARTplorations stencil Big Bloom Factory LARGE. This stencil/mask measures approximately 8 inches wide by 10 3/16 inches tall.
