STAMPlorations Birthday Hop

Hi Everyone,

STAMPlorations  is turning 4!!! And that is one big reason to celebrate! Amazing how this little company has grown - all due to the dedication, hard work and incredibly creative mind of Shery Russ - the owner and driving force behind it!
It has been such an honor to stay on the DT almost since the beginnings. I think I never will grow tired of it :)



And here are my cards showcasing some of the new products:


This gorgeous stamp is called Blossom Sprays #3, designed by Deepti. I colored it lightly and added a generous amount of Wink of Stella - you can see it better in the obliqued photo. Die cut the word die and raised it with die cut fun foam. The border is the stitched nesting die.


For my second card I used the Radiant Roses from the In Bloom Series.


Water colored it and added spatters. I used the same "beautiful" die cut as on my first card and also die cut the large YOU from a background I made with acrylic paints.


Now there is many prizes you can win:
  • Three (3) randomly drawn winners from all comments left on the STAMP blog and participating designers blog will each receive a $25 gift certificate to the store
  • One (1) randomly drawn winner from comments left on our Facebook page will win a grab bag consisting of new products worth up to $30

So Suzy Love Birds

Hi Everyone,

there are still some stamps from the last So Suzy Stamps release that I need to ink up - today I decided on the Love Birds.


My stamp supplies:







I secured the card stock on the Bullseye stencil and sponged it in rainbow distress inks.


Stamped the love birds on it.


Colored the lovebirds in grey and added white Sharpie accents. Die cut it with a round stitched die.


I then used my Misti to stamp the sentiment - you see there is some gap, since the image is raised.


I moved the image away and stamped the sentiment again. I then glued the image onto the card stock. and since it was a little off center (tsk, tsk, tsk...) I simply cut of a trip of the card stock and added a striped piece of patterned paper to make  up for it.


I am loving my bullseye rainbow love birds - what do you think?

Happy Stamping!

Muse Christmas Visions

Hi Everyone,

the linky list over at Muse Christmas Vision is closing soon.... You really should join us! Chriss Blagrave made such a whimsical card - so stimulating and FUN to CASE!
Now this is my take on it:


This is Chriss' card:


I basically just grouped a bunch of trees in similar colors - they are from Neat&Tangled.
I put some Stickles on top for some Christmas bling. You can make a card like this in under 10 minutes. 


I already saw some amazing cards on our linky list! Go and check it out!

Hope you'll find time to play along with us this month. 
The linky list will be active until June 28th.

Happy Holiday Card Making!

Oh Frap!

Hi Everyone,

I can't not play in the current Coffee Lovers Blog Hop......
 so I pulled out my favorite CUTplorations die and paired it up with my favorite stamp set - the Katzelkraft rats.


And then I remembered it has to have a summer theme - rats, I thought and added some flowers - why not - created a summer meadow with a rat and her frappucino.


My supplies:
rat - Katzelkraft 
dies - CUTplorations
all other stamps - STAMPlorations

Skipping Stones Design - Let it Be

Hi Everyone,

I am over at the Skipping Stones Design blog today with my card, using this beautiful set called


This is the set:


Don't you love the chevron butterfly? I sure do! 
I first heat embossed it in gold and then stamped it in black and fuzzy cut it.



I water colored around the edges of the butterfly. Let it dry and added black splatters. Wrapped gold embroidery thread around the black butterflies waist and mounted it with a thin strip of foam tape for extra dimension.




I hope you liked this! Thanks for visiting!
Happy Stamping!

CASE this Sketch #226

Hi Everyone,

I had to play with those stamps - they are by Local King Rubber Stamp. I knew it as soon as I saw this weeks CASE this Sketch



The other option would have been a bat....I thinks its a Bush Baby, just had to hang him from its tail...


I used the matching die for it. That made it easy. Added an enamel dot. Also added some light grey shadow for more dimension.


Happy Stamping!

STAMPlorations Inspiration #139

Hi Everyone,
its inspiration time at STAMPlorations!

This week we are featuring Deepti's stamp line Dee's Artsy Impressions.


My stamp supplies:
preview-DAIFramesandFlowers  preview-DAIBalloonsandBanners
Frames and Flowers, Balloons and Banners

This is my take on Piet Mondrian - a painter I greatly admire. This card does not do him justice. But it was super easy. Randomly stamp the frame and then color in the overlaps. Used Faber Castell Big markers for this. Added the sentiment.


It turned put to be quite masculine - a nice side effect, grin!

From June 20 to 26, all DAI stamps are 10% off (no coupon needed) + 2 DAI stamp sets (Frames and Flowers & Best Mom Ever) are 20% off (no coupon needed)


Or even better use code STAMPGIRLCORNELIA
to get 20% off on all stamps, stencils, and dies on all regular- and sale-priced items in the store.

Happy Dad Day

Hi Everyone,

I made that card a little while back and did not have time to post it yet. Alas, the time has come!


I first sponged the border at the bottom. I cut the happy with a Cutplorations die. I then stamped the bird and water colored him. The bird is by Katzelkraft, as I am sure you all know. Added the sentiment and some splatters and Nuvo drops.
