STAMPlorations Special Post: Say It Big with Bold Birds + A Giveaway

STAMPlorations™ Blog

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by. I have a special group of cards to share with you today. I’m doing a product feature post at STAMPlorations. I’m highlighting STAMP’s bird products today along with Say It Big and Typografia Motivate sentiment stamps.

  Check out more at the STAMP blog. There’s a special sale with 25% off select products, 2 prizes there and 1 here plus you can use my coupon code, STAMPGIRLMELISSA, to receive an extra 20% off at the shop.

I’m giving away one of my favorite stamp sets:

ForTheBirds-preview

Comment here and over at my Instagram feed. Tell me if you enjoy bird watching or what birds you especially love and you’ll be entered into a drawing for “For the Birds.”

UPDATED Thursday, September 27th.

Karen Ladd you are the winner of the stamp set! Congrats!

Time’s flying and I have a flock of 14 Bold Birdiful cards to share with you today.  Let’s fly!

Please see the STAMP blog for card descriptions.

     

 

Can you see how much fun I had with these products?! I had originally planned on making 6 cards, but had a flock of ideas come flapping through my mind. The cards kept flying, but my feathers weren’t ruffled. Inky fingers, but no ruffled feathers. These products are a joy to use!

So, fly on over to the STAMP blog. While there, tell us which among my cards today is your favorite? Share your answer by commenting on the STAMP blog post for a chance to win either a $15 gift certificate to the store OR your choice of any one of the (in-stock) products that I used in my projects. Commenting closes on Friday, August 31. We’ll announce the two winners on September 10 in the August Winners post at the STAMP blog.

I hope that you’ll come visit me at Instagram.  Follow me there and leave a comment about your favorite birds.

I’m giving away one of my favorite stamp sets:

If you are looking for me I’ll be in the gardens and fields with the birds!

Grace & Peace,

Stencil Sunday April 23

      Hi! I’m here with a quick post for today’s STAMPlorations Stencil Sunday.

This is also a reminder that you have a few days to play along with this month’s Mixed Media Challenge.

I have a tag to share with you today. To make this tag, I used an ARTplorations stencil, tinted embossing pastes, inks, watercolor paints, twine, a die cut sentiment and some rhinestones.

img_7408_edited-2

   I cut a tag using the CUTplorations Luggage Tags Nesting Dies.

I started making my tag by stamping the bird from STAMPlorations Trendy Birds 2, carefully fussy cutting the image and inking it up the stamp with a variety of colors.

Then, I used the ARTplorations stencil Retro Circles.
