STAMPlorations Second Birthday !

July 1, 2015 at 3:00 pm 40 comments

Birthdays should always be celebrated, right? Well STAMPlorations is 2 and they’re having a massive party.

They’ve invited guests to join in- and I was one of the lucky ones. They’ve released 3 new sets 

 Here’s how you can win prizes

Prizes for commenting:

1 winner of $25 gift certificate

5 winners of $10 gift certificate
Prizes for linking up a party/celebration/birthday project:

3 winners of the party stamp sets (1 winner of Party Mates, 1 winner of Party Time, 1 winner of PartyGirl)

1 winner of $25 gift certificate (if STAMPlorations stamps/stencils are used) or $15 gift certificate (if non-STAMPlorations stamps/stencils are used)

***winners are randomly drawn

So…before you get commenting and join in creating- here’s what I’ve created using the sets. First off Party Girl

 

I thought it would be fun to make the skirt a little more 3D 

 

I thought it would be fun to make another card with a completely different take using the skirt…what about butterflies! 

  I’ve used an acetate overlay for each butterfly and a silver glitter body (altho this photo doesn’t show it well) 

I’ve already used the Party Time set with each card-a superbly useful sentiments set !

Onto a card with the Party Mates set  

 I’ve used just 2 tiny stamps from the lovely selection of party themed icons plus the Party Time set. 

And last, and sorta least is a very silly party invite.

I had the privelege of meeting Shirley who designed the Party Girl set. We were having a random conversation about faces and clocks and time and it turned into discussing making a clock with the legs from her set. She dared me to create a project using the legs as clock hands. So of course, I couldn’t possibly turn down a dare.  

 I know- it’s ridiculous- but it’s supposed to be a little fun! 

Do join in by visiting the blog today. Leave a comment on my blog for a chance to win and a comment on the other designer’s blog via the linky found here for more chances to win. If you fancy making a project using this inspiration mood board and link up 

 Commenting and linking close on Monday, July 6. Winners are announced on Tuesday, July 7. Do join in with the party here 

Happy Happy Birthday STAMPlorations – may have tonnes more Birthdays just as lovely as this one xx

    I totally love how you create such wonderful cards, the way you see beyond the main theme! It’s really inspiring to go, have a look at the stamp sets and think of other ways of using them by creating fabulous pieces of art! Thank you, once again, for the inspiration and for sharing the STAMPlorations stamps & party! xx

    YOU ARE AMAZING!!!! All cards are stunning! Love the 3D skirt on your first card! Those butterflies – I had the same idea – good that I did not see your card first – like yours better than mine…would have abandoned that idea….. and that clock – I might have to CASE it, or lets just say copy it! Great to have you as GDT with us at STAMPlorations!
