STAMPlorations Inspiration #117


It's Inspiration Tuesday at STAMPlorations, and I've got a little sneak peek of what's coming in an hour from now - my newest stamp set, Fowl Play!  I've paired my chickie with balloons from Becca's A Snarky Birthday To You.

I'm adding this to Darnell's NBUS #10.  Not only are the stamps NBUS, but the grass is too - it's a Sharpie Paint Pen which I've had for ages and never used.  No optional bubblewrap for me today, but I'm sure I'll be back to play again with bubblewrap.


And to Less Is More (I haven't played there in ages!) where the theme is one or more balloons.


While we're on the subject of balloons and bubblewrap, there's some popping to do.  Pop on over to the STAMPlorations blog for more fabulous inspiration from the design team, and leave a comment for a chance to win gift certificate.  Then pop back in an hour for more of my Fowl Play stamps.

Speaking of which, if you are thinking of buying any stamps, stencils or dies from STAMPlorations, you can get 20% off, even on sale prices, if you use my code STAMPGIRLSHIRLEY at the checkout.

  2. What a fantastic card! I absolutely love how you've used a black background so the bird and balloons really pop against it. The Sharpie paint pen has done a super job of the grass and shows up much more than I would have expected. Love it! Thanks so much for playing with us at Less is More :)

  10. Your bird is simply wonderful with his long legs and toting his bouquet of balloons! As you know, I'm terrified of birds, but not yours...they're marvelously friendly *grin*
