STAMPlorations Inspiration #114 - Becca's Big Grins

It's Inspiration Tuesday at STAMPlorations, and this week we're spotlighting Becca's Big Grins stamps, with 10% off (no coupon needed) and 20% off her Bunnies 'n Beans set.  Scroll down to the end for even more discounts!

Today's post is brought to you by the number FIVE.  I've been commissioned to make several birthday cards for five-year-olds, the classmates of my great-nephew, so the pressure's on (purely self-imposed!) to come up with something different each time.

For this one, I stamped the pterodactyl from Becca's Dino Things and watercoloured it with Distress Inks and fussy cut it.  I already had the background in my stash.  I diecut the Happy and Birthday and swiped Stormy Sky Distress Ink over them, then arranged them so that they were in the pterodactyl's claws.  I stamped the Texturized Big Numbers in VersaFine Onyx Black, then cut out the 5 and popped it in the pterodactyl's beak.

Pop on over to the STAMPlorations blog for some more fabulous inspiration from the Design Team, and don't forget to leave a comment there for your chance to win a $10 gift certificate.

Then pop over to browse Becca's stamp collection ;).  If you use my code STAMPGIRLSHIRLEY (not case sensitive - I just wanted it to catch your eye ;) ) when ordering, you'll get an extra 20%! You can use the code any time to get 20% off any stamps, dies or stencils that you order - even on sale items!  Happy spending :)
