STAMPlorations Inspiration #66


I've got some STAMPlorations inspiration for a male card for you today, using the car from the mini set Enjoy The Ride.  I teamed it with a sentiment made from Sketchy Alphabet ('Happy') and Big Greetings ('birthday').

The background is part of a Gelli Plate masterboard I made a while ago.  I thought this portion looked suitably retro for the card.  The thing with Gelli Plate printing sessions is that you get a little carried away, and before you know it you have a huge Mt Gelli NBUS of prints, as Maria f has been finding out ;)  At least there's always a background or two to kickstart my creativity!

Pop on over to the STAMPlorations blog for some more fabulous inspiration from the Design Team, and don't forget to leave a comment to be in with a chance of winning a gift certificate.

I've also got a CASEplorations reminder for you.  We're CASEing this card by Betsy Veldman:


I've used the colour scheme, and the floral theme, but my central focus is one large flower rather than the sentiment encircled by flowers.

  8. So true about Mt Gelli schtuff! Very retro and I love the end result! I now have some of the smaller Gelli plates that have never been used - I must take the plunge soon!
