STAMPlorations February Challenge – Paint it Red

Hi! I’m here with a special post for STAMPlorations February Challenge.

You’ve probably heard that STAMPlorations owner and designer, Shery Russ, welcomed a daughter named “Winter” to the family in December. In order to give Shery some time to catch her breath we are going to take a little “Winter” break!

There will be just one STAMPlorations challenge for you to join for the months of February, March and April. You’ll find it announced on STAMPlorations blog the 5th of each of those months. The challenge will have a theme and as long as you follow the theme, any type of project is welcome! We’ll return to our regular schedule in May.

I used ARTplorations “Hidden Hearts” stencil to make all 5 of the following cards.

Here’s my set of cards.

Here’s my sweet parade of cupcake cards.

Card #1 Thanks (SSSMonday)

Card #2 CAS XOXO (FMS322,The Paper Players,WAW)

Card #3 Love (CFC192, JUGS#426)

Card #4 XOXO with navy colored card (Fusion Sketch)

Card #5 Sweet (MFT, WAW)

So, our theme for the February challenge is Paint it Red! What does that make you think of? Hearts? How about coffee/tea and sweets? We’d love to see your creations using the color red or having a theme of love.

Take a look at what some of the DT gals created.
