STAMPlorations Inspiration #135

It's time for some more inspiration from the STAMPlorations team, and this week we're focusing on Shery's stamps.  For the next seven days, all of Shery's designs are 10% off, except for A Cup of Roses 4x4 set and Many Blessings coordinating stamp and die set, which are 20% off.

For my background I inked the Distressed Damask background stamp with Distress Oxides, spritzed and stamped, then cut out a panel using the Crazy Double Stitched Rectangle die.  I stamped the Sketched: Birthday Cake on spare white card, watercoloured with Distress Inks and fussy cut it out.  The happy die was cut from white card then dipped and smooshed into Distress Inks, and the birthday sentiment strip fixed over the top.

Pop on over to the STAMPlorations blog for some more fabulous inspiration from the design team, and don't forget to comment for a chance to win a gift certificate to the store.  And any time you feel like having a splurge in the store, use my code STAMPGIRLSHIRLEY for an extra 20% off all stamps, stencils and dies.

This also serves as a reminder for the current CUTplorations challenge.  All you need to do to play along is use this inspiration photo, any STAMPlorations product and any make of diecut.
