STAMPlorations Release Week - Day 5

It's the final day of the STAMPlorations Release Week, and today we're showcasing some fabulous die plates:

Just made for a shaker card :)

Then there's the Uppercase Alphabet plate:

The Stitched Snow Hills die makes a great wavy base for the letters:

And lastly, there's the Lowercase Alphabet plate:

Lowercase Alphabet

Obviously there is only one 'p' in the alphabet, but you can get away with using the 'd' from the same pass.  It's not exactly the same shape, but when you're using random colours and stamping, it's not too glaring.

Pop on over to the STAMPlorations blog for some more fabulous inspiration from the Design Team. It wouldn't be a release week without prizes, so here's what we've got for you:
  • 2 winners of $25 gift certificates randomly drawn from comments left the STAMP blog and designer blogs
  • 1 winner of her choice of 1 stamp set from the new release randomly drawn from our Facebook page
  • 1 winner of her choice of CUTplorations die from the new release randomly drawn from our Instagram page
All the stamps and dies in this release are 5% off until 10 February.  And if you use my code STAMPGIRLSHIRLEY you'll get another 20% off these and any other stamps, dies and stencils.

  10. OMG Shirley..I Love your shaker number card and your CAS style cards using your upper and lower case letters. What did you cut your letters out of...a stamped mixed media background you made?
