STAMPlorations Things With Wings Blog Hop


We've got a fun blog hop for you at STAMPlorations this month - we're celebrating winged things in Spring!  Every Wednesday in April we'll have some fabulous inspiration for you, and the hop will remain open until the 30th.  That gives you plenty of time to comment on the hop stops, and to create your own winged things to enter into the hop for a chance to win stamps, dies and gift certificates.

If you were thinking of treating yourself to some new stamps and dies, look no further than STAMPlorations for some gorgeous filigree butterfly dies, dragonfly dies, flower dies and stamps.  Check them out in the New Releases section here.  (And if you use my code STAMPGIRLSHIRLEY you'll get 20% off any stamps, dies and stencils in the store.)

Today I've used the Flutter Zen 1 two-part die set.


You get a solid butterfly die, and this beautiful filigree die which cuts so cleanly.  All the little pieces just popped out very easily.  I adhered the filigree layer at the antennae, head and tail and a little pinch on the body, then eased the wings up slightly for movement.  Here's a better view:


The black card is slightly pearlised.  You could always add Wink of Stella to pearlised matt card.


Pop on over to the STAMPlorations blog for some more fabulous inspiration from the team, and play along to win!

Then pop back to the STAMPlorations blog in a few hours where I'll be spotlighting the new STAMP Club stamps and dies sets.  Here's a sneak peek:
