STAMPlorations Giving Thanks Blog Hop

Hi there,

we are having this year's Giving Thanks Blog Hop over on the STAMPlorations Blog. From November 15th to November 30th, 2017 there will also be our Thanksgiving Sale. Stamps, Stencils and Dies will be 40% off with the code BIGTHANKS. This code can only be used once per customer but if you mention that you decided to order after reading this post on my (Tanja's) Blog a free word/phrase die (up to $10 value) of your choice will be included in your package. You can mention my name and the freebie of your choice either by commenting your order or by sending an email to Shery (

These are my projects:

  • cut out the largest of the CUTplorations Tags #1 dies from watercolor paper
  • stamp the STAMPlorations Coffee Cup Large with Versafine Vintage Sepia
  • embellish the coffee cup with pumpkins and leaves from the brand new STAMPlorations Wonderfall Time set - use the masking technique
  • color the image and the background with Daniel Smith and Schmincke Horadam watercolors
  • add some brown splatters and ink up the edges of the tag with Distress Ink Ground Espresso
  • stamp the sentiment from the STAMPlorations Wonderfall Time set with Versamark onto a strip of brown cardstock and heat-emboss it with WOW! Bright White Super Fine embossing powder
  • thread three strands of twine through the hole of the tag

  • cut a shadow-box card base from brown cardstock
  • cut an opening into the box base
  • cut out two hills from green cardstock 
  • create a background using Distress Ink (Stormy Sky, Chipped Sapphire) and some water droplets
  • stamp the sentiment from the very versatile STAMPlorations Wonderfall Time set with Versamark and heat-emboss it with WOW! Metallic Gold Rich Super Fine embossing powder
  • create some trees as a backdrop using brown cardstock, vellum and different colors of Alcohol Inks (Sunset Orange, Botanical, Watermelon, Mushroom)
  • stamp the scarecrow and some leaves from the STAMPlorations Wonderfall Time set with Versafine Vintage Sepia and color the images with Derwent Inktense Pencils and a damp watercolor brush
