A Sweet Blog Hop!


Welcome to Sweet Stamp Shop's inaugural blog hop! Get ready for lots of sweetness and you might even feel a little toothache with all the sweet samples we have in store for you!

I hope you arrived here from Tracy's amazing blog. If not, start at the beginning here at Sweet Stamp Shop because along the way, there are hidden "codes" on random blogs that will offer you a savings on the more stamp sets you buy.

Be sure you leave comments along the way to be eligible for some stamp set prizes. Nicole will choose random names from random blogs and announce the winners on August 10th.

Here's my card using Sweet Tooth, a delightfully sweet set of candies and gumballs and more. I stamped the gumball machine and filled it with some gumballs (and jawbreakers!) and colored everything with Copics.


I embossed some lines for texture (รก la my friend Elizabeth) and added the sweet sentiment. It's the perfect "just because" card to send to a sweet friend.

Remember to hunt for the discount codes on selected blogs and then visit the store which has officially opened for business! The codes are only good from August 5th through the 8th.

Also, check out these sites for more sweetness:  YouTube   Twitter   Facebook   Flickr

Your next stop on the hop is the mega talented Teri Anderson. Let's go and check out what fabulousness she's created, shall we?

Thanks for stopping by today! Happy hopping and happy shopping!
