STAMPlorations Release Week - Day 1


It's STAMPlorations release week, and we've got some fabulous goodies for you to drool over.  First up is Shery's latest stamp set, Noteworthy 2, packed with encouragement quotes.  I chose the 'jump' quote because I couldn't resist pairing it with this little guy, who you'll see again tomorrow.


Noteworthy 2
I scribbled the side of a house for him to jump off.  Hmm, might design a large house stamp, whaddaya think?  I'm trying a different approach with my photography this week.  I've always admired those people who can stage gorgeous photos without taking anything away from the card, so I thought I'd study them and see if I could attempt something similar.  Whaddaya think?

Anyway, there are prizes to be won at STAMPlorations this week.  Here's what we've got for you:
  • 2 winners of $25 gift certificates randomly drawn from comments left the STAMP blog and designer blogs
  • 1 winner of her choice of 1 stamp set from the new release randomly drawn from our Facebook page
  • 1 winner of her choice of CUTplorations die from the new release randomly drawn from our Instagram page
Pop on over to the STAMPlorations blog for some more fabulous inspiration from the Design Team, and get commenting for more chances to win!

Until 10 February, all the new release stamps and die plates are 5% off.  And if you want to use my code STAMPGIRLSHIRLEY, you'll get another 20% off :)

  2. Such a fun card. Love how you matched the image with the sentiment. For humans, jumping down from a roof top might not be such a great idea...

  35. Umpteen apologies for being MIA; my scheduled 7 days of marking diploma exams transformed into 12 (talk about blurry eyes!) which saw me falling behind in leaving real comments. Hopefully, you received the thought-bubble ones, as your gallery has been nothing short of marvelous! Starting here; fingers crossed I can stay caught up for while! Your card is sheer delight, from the doodled house to the whimsical bird to the fabulous sentiment! This one, in particular, fits my niece...she's a 'jump right in there' girl!
