CUTplorations February Challenge

We've got a fabulous new inspiration graphic for you for our CUTplorations Challenge this month.  We want you to use die cuts - preferably from STAMPlorations, but if you don't have any, you can still play along with other branded dies.   However, you do need to use STAMPlorations product to be in with a chance of winning - if you don't own any, there's always the digi in our never-ending challenge. And if you're lucky enough to win, you can spend your winnings on CUTplorations dies :)

Here's where the inspiration graphic led me:

The starting point was the striped washi tape, then I chose hot pink for the Happy word die.  I thought I'd go for a soft look by stamping a flower from Deepti's Blooming Buds in Distress Inks then giving it a colour wash.  Fussy cut it out, threaded it through the word die and added 'birthday' from Shery's Big Greetings set and it's done!

I found this vintage linen table napkin at the back of my linen cupboard to use as the backdrop for my photos - pretty, innit?

Pop on over to the CUTplorations challenge page for some more fabulous designs using the inspiration graphic, and play along with us.  How will it inspire you?
