COLOR BLOOMS Blog Hop & Linky Party with the STAMPlorations Girls

Hey, STAMPlorations friends! We're back with another fun hop and linky party. The STAMPlorations girls took out their favorite coloring mediums and colored a page from COLOR BLOOMS, our first coloring book for grownups -- specially created for the cardmaker, crafter, and mixed media artist in you! Then they took the pages they colored and used it in projects. We hope you'll be inspired as you visit each designer's blog and read about the coloring mediums they used and how they created their projects.

Before we show you the projects, let's mention the prizes for blog hop and linky party participants:

  • ONE (1) commenter randomly drawn from our Facebook page will win a $10 gift certificate for herself and a $10 gift certificate for one friend she tags in her comment
  • ONE (1) commenter randomly drawn from all comments left here on the blog and designers' blogs will win a $10 gift certificate
  • ONE (1) participant randomly drawn from the linky party entries will win a copy of Color Blooms and a $15 gift certificate to the STAMPlorations shop

So for a shot at the prizes:
  • like, comment, and tag a friend on our Facebook page post
  • comment here and on the designers’ blogs
  • participate in the linky party by downloading the Color Blooms page sampler, creating a project out of it, and then linking it up on or before Tuesday, September 6.

  11. this is a fantastic idea. Love that
    several projects can be made from one

    cards. I've printed the page and hope to
    be able to post it. I don't have a lot of
    luck with Linky. I'm not too 'puter-literate.
    Great hope. thanks.
