Hello and welcome to Day 3 of STAMPlorations 4th Birthday Party and Blog Hop and Wishlist Linkup! There are loads of new stamps and dies on release, and the design teams have been playing with them. Here's what I used from the release:
|Cupcake Builder #1
|Shaker Balloons #1 Heart
|Sweet Word Die
|Bold Sentiments: Sweet
The second card uses the heart shaker balloon die set, sweet word die and a couple of ARTplorations stencils with Distress Oxides. I built up the shaker element by cutting four extra hearts and using the frames.
So then I had four die-cut hearts. Couldn't waste them...
I put them through an embossing folder, added some die-cut strings and popped them onto a Distress watercoloured background, and added the 'sweet' die-cut (with a black layer underneath). The rest of the sentiment comes from Blossom Overture.
All the important stuff on how to win lots of goodies is on the STAMPlorations blog. All stamps, dies and stencils are 15% off until 3 July, and if you use my code STAMPGIRLSHIRLEY you'll get another 20% off. What are you waiting for??
