STAMPlorations Challenge - Stamps and Die Cuts


It's time for our monthly challenge at STAMPlorations, and this month we want you to use stamps and die cuts.


I've used a leaf die cut from Simon Says as a backdrop to my rambling roses.  The rose image is from the Boxed Blooms and Bold Sentiments set.  I stamped the image three times (ok, six times in case I messed up) then coloured the rose petals and cut out.  For the rosebud I just cut off some of the outer petals.  Then out came the paintbrush for a bit of splattering.  The green grungy marks were made by spritzing one of the images from Vignette: Live Love Laugh with Peeled Paint and partially stamping it.  The sentiment is Sentiment Builders: Happy.

Our guest designer this month is Karen from Snippets.  Pop over to STAMPlorations to check out the gorgeous cards by Karen and the rest of the DT, and join in the fun.  Don't forget, if you enter all three challenges, you're in with a chance of an extra prize :)
