STAMPlorations November Stamp Release Blog Hop – Day Five

Welcome to Day 5, the last day of the of the November Stamp Release Blog Hop here at STAMPlorations! For complete info on our hop, including how you can win stamps, click here.

Today, we’re putting the spotlight on Trendy Leaves. We’ll be picking one commenter to win this set so leave a comment here and on the rest of the STAMPlorations girls’ posts for a chance to win the set.


To make my card, I used my Japanese watercolor brush pens to paint the background on 140-lb cold-press watercolor paper. I layered yellow, orange, light blue, and violet. After the panel has dried, I stamped the leaves in Memento morocco and rhubarb stalk inks. I went over the stamped leaves with the watercolor brush pens again, laying down some yellow first and drying it, before adding layers of orange and red watercolors. I stamped the sentiment (from Sentiment Builders: Thank You and Boxed Blooms & Bold Sentiments). For the border, I simply ran the side of the black watercolor brush pen along the edge of the panel.

Thanks so much for visiting and hopping along! If you haven’t yet, check out how the rest of the STAMPlorations girls used the Trendy Leaves set in their projects. I hope you’ve enjoyed hopping with us all week this week. Stay tuned because we’ve got a few more surprises up our sleeves in the next few days!

If you’ve missed a day of visiting and commenting on the projects, you can go back to the STAMPlorations blog. We’re giving everyone until Tuesday, November 25, to finish hopping and commenting for a chance to win the stamp sets we’ve featured this week as well as a $25 gift certificate to the shop.

All 5 sets we’ve featured this week are available at a special release bundle price too until November 25! If you want just one or two sets, they’re also available at 10% off their regular price here. After November 25, the bundle will no longer be available and the individual stamp sets in this release will be sold at regular price. However, our stamp club members will always be able to buy stamps at 15% off when they use their personal discount code.
