STAMPlorations Inspiration Project #22

Hi Everyone, its INSPIRATION day again at STAMPlorations

Our wonderful DT girls made some beautiful cards to entice you playing with your stamps or stencils - STAMPlorations or otherwise. And perhaps I can also inspire you to play along with us!

This is a very simple one layer card - used the brushstroke and stamped the butterflies on it. Added the sentiment, some white accents and two enamel dots. You can make that in 5 minutes....but it took me longer than that - Had to think this trough and  decide with which color challenge I should play along, etc, etc......

Here are my supplies:

Vignette: Celebrate Artsy
Trendy Butterflies
Bold Sentiments: Hello

So, if you are up for it - CASE my card or any other card and link it up HERE over at STAMPlorations. The InLinkz gallery  will be open until the 5th of July - gives you plenty of time! One winner will be randomly drawn from all entries to win a $15 gift certificate or their choice of any 2 ARTplorations stencils.

Linking up with:
ColourQ - see below
7 Days 7 Sketches - Day 7 - used the butterflies instead of photos


Happy stamping!

Saw this earlier at Stamplorations, but because I'm so easily distracted, didn't have time to pop over and tell you "Holy Moley girl, do you EVER make a bad card." Geez, what a talent you are. So glad I you.

I love those brushstrokes with your butterflies, and you picked a great color challenge to go with it! Cards that should take me five minutes take me more like five hours - always!

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
