STAMPlorations Spotlight Week Day 1

Hi Everyone,

today is the day you have been waiting for - DAY 1 of our week long blog hop at STAMPlorations featuring 5 new stamp sets.



Today we are showing you WORLD BIRTHDAY CAKES - designed by Shirley Bampton.

I just love those whimsical stamps - they may just be my favorite from this release!

preview-TBSWorldBirthdayCakes

I choose the Sydney opera house and used one of my favorite color combinations - pink and gold on water color paper.


I just LOVE the gold here (Fine Tech Pearl colors)- beautiful shimmer and saturation of those German water color paints. 

I did  a light color wash around the sentiment. And of course - splatters....



Don't forget to leave a comment on this post and the rest of the team's blogs for a chance to win one of the prizes. Commenting closes on August 23. Winners will be announced on August 24.

Check out what the rest of the team made! You'll find links to all our projects here.

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
