Hippity Hop - my Stamp BOX Blog Hop

If you're here for the my Stamp BOX blog hop,
you're in the right place!


Did you start at the beginning? If not, click back and visit all the DT blogs in order and leave comments at each one to be eligible to win a my Stamp BOX set of your choice!

Today I am featuring the Neighborhoods set of stamps from my Stamp Box. This set has four distinct skylines and three fun sentiments to add to your projects. Take a look at two!


I had such a good time coloring and blending with Gamsol for this farm scene. I also used some rustic papers from Daisy D's French Market collection and some jute for texture. I can almost smell the fresh air and homemade pie!

And now for something totally opposite, here's a cityscape complete with grunge and sparkle. I used the skyscraper city stamp and grunged it up with Prismacolor pencils once again. (Can you tell that it's my new favorite thing? Thanks, Jen!) Even through all the grunge, the big city never fails to delight with all its sparkle and glitter. I added silver gel pen to some of the buildings and even some Stickles in the sky. Even the background paper and ribbon are sparkly silver.


I hope you give this stamp set a try. It's one of my favorites!

Don't forget! You must go back to the my Stamp BOX blog when you are finished and leave a comment with your first name, last initial and your location in a comment and tell us what your favourite project of the evening was!

Now check out what Lara has in store for you in our blog hop. Enjoy all the creativity!
