STAMPlorations 5th Birthday Spotlight


Hello!  Today it's my turn to share some oldies but goodies with you and a couple of new cards with old and new stamps as part of STAMPlorations 5th Birthday Celebrations.  You can join in the fun by CASEing any of my cards from this post, or indeed any of the cards from STAMP team members' June posts.  There are over $500 worth of prizes to be won - you can find all the details on the main blog post here.

So.  The brief was, show your top three STAMPlorations cards.  How do I choose?  I have so many favourites!  But I've got to say, one of my all-time favourite stamps is the kookaburra/kingfisher from the Small Birds set, and this card is my favourite (you can see the post here).  Actually I've got more favourites from this stamp set, which you can see on my Pinterest board here.

Small Birds

I love this party dress - I'd love to have worn one in real life, back in the day!

This next one reminds me of so many mediterranean holidays.  I made it for an artist-inspired series that I did as spotlight posts for STAMPlorations

Houses
So, those are the oldies, and here are a couple of newbies.  First up is a card using the new birthday stamp and dies on a smooshed background:

And my next card is using my oldie but goodie Party Dresses set.

  14. Not sure how you narrowed your favourites to 'three', as all your cards are incredibly; the trio here, however, truly are amazing...as are the newcomers. The party dresses...swoon! This set is on my wish list, as it's caught my sweet niece's eye (she's into 'dress designing' these days...).
