Stampotique New Release Blog Hop!





 Thank you for sticking with us the last few days, hope you have been enjoying a sneak peek at all the new stamps being released. If you've been hoppin' you're now at the last stop on the hop! Stop on hop!!! lol.......hope you've enjoyed all the creations from the AMAZING Design Team. I'm blessed to be able to play with some of the new rubber and join the team in the hop!

Today is our last day of the hop and the images you have been seeing the last few days are now available over on the Stampotique website.

For our last little surprise, all of those who have hopped with us this week and today will be eligible for our random drawing of a winner to get some new release goodies.  We will choose our winner next week before our next challenge.


For my card, I couldn't resist using  Rainy Day, by our very own DT Member Maria Sabina Raita. Can you say SUPER Talented. I have been a fan of her gorgeous creations and now here she is illustrating for Stampotique! How very cool is that?!  I am always inspired by her elegant style and tried to emulate that in my creation. I coloured Rainy Day with my Touch Markers. Here's a little colour map for your perusal.





To achieve this subtle look, I chose the lightest of colours and after applying a small amount of ink, used my colourless blender to lift out and blend a great deal of the colour. How fun is THAT?




I ran out of room on the front after adding the pretty flower, so I decorated the interior of the card by lightly stamping rainy day, along with "the weather is changing" sentiment. The DP is an older one, Kyoshi by Basic Grey. If you are starting here, you can follow these links to complete the hop!

  2. Rainy Day has a been feature of our summer in the west of UK. Not advisable to go out without your brolly! Lets hope the weather is changing. The sentiment is a fab one though!
