Welcome to DAY TWO of the STAMPlorations November Stamp Release Blog Hop! For complete info on our hop, including how you can win stamps, click here.

Today, we're putting the spotlight on VIGNETTE: Eat Drink Be Merry. Plus we've got a special guest designer joining us, the talented Amy TsurutaWe'll be picking one commenter to win this set so visit our guest designer's and the STAMPlorations girls' blogs and leave a comment on their project posts for a chance to win.


(Note: There are 10 stops in today's hop. You're not required to visit every stop on the hop to be eligible, but commenting on all the stops will increase your chances of winning. In case you click on a designer's link and you get a page/post not found error, just go to their main blog and scroll down to find their post for the STAMPlorations November stamp release blog hop. You can also go back here to our main blog; we'll update the links throughout the day.)

We are so excited that Amy graciously accepted our invitation to join us today. It was Maria who had the brilliant idea of inviting her because she thought the Eat Drink Be Merry stamp set is something Amy would like using...her being known as the coffee lady and all on blogland :o)

I have a son who is a senior in high school and my daughter is in her 2nd year at the University of Washington. I've been happily blogging for 7 years at Tsuruta Designs. I truly enjoy paper crafting, love to inspire & be inspired!"

And here is Amy's super fun card!

  3. Is there any better way to celebrate the season than to eat, drink and be merry? I think not !!! What a fabulous fun set, perfect for party creations, just love it

  4. Wow! I love all the creative ways people have used this set. I tend to be a bit too literal, so I don't always "see" all the possibilities. This is so inspiring -- Thank you!

  11. Great new stampset! I just had a laugh about Ï love you like coffee"; don't like coffee, so... but the ather stamps are so divers!

    1. Yeah, that sentiment can actually have 2 different meanings depending on which side of the coffee cup you're on - can be used in a romantic card or a breakup card haha! I thought I'd include it there. You're the first person to "get" that one and mention it ;o)
