STAMPlorations 5th Birthday

So excited to be a highlighted STAMPgirl today at STAMPlorations celebrating 5 years! HAPPY STAMPlorations Birthday Shery!

Here are three of my favorite projects using STAMPorations goodies:) Choosing only three was very difficult, as I remembered the JOY in creating each piece. It is relaxing for me to sit down with several STAMPlorations' stamps, stencils or dies, mixed with a bit of ink or coloring medium and see what art emerges. So many of STAMPlorations' products are timeless in their design:)

 Using Blossom Sprays #2 ,BEAUTIFUL word die.and Crazy Double Stitched Rectangle Dies.

To celebrate Stamplorations 5th Birthday I created three new cards:)
STAMPlorations' products used:
Ethnic Flutter 1 - ARTplorations Mask
Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies - CUTplorations

I love how you get a "two-fer" by using a stencil/mask and ink sprays! First, by placing the stencil/mask on a white panel, spray with inks of choice. Second,  carefully lifting the stencil/mask and place it sprayed side down on another panel, press and lift.. the beautiful outlineed image is revealed.

I used the Ethnic Flutter 1 - ARTplorations Mask and some Sprays from Shimmerz Paints
Pressed White CS on top of the Spritzed stencil to get the lovely colored impression of the butterfly
then added the Washi tape and White Die cut Trendy Spring Blooms Dies - CUTplorations
This third card is the panel that I spritzed the stencil on...It was just TOO pretty to toss! With a hint of watercolor shadow under the wings and a simply stamp sentiment the card is ready to be trimmed with the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies
