STAMPlorations Stencil Sunday – May 2018

 

I am happy to be here with you for STAMPlorations for Stencil Sunday and with a reminder about our May Mixed Media challenge.

Our Theme for this month is: Things with Wings

For this month’s challenge please create a winged-themed project that includes a tag (or tags) in it.

I made a tag to share with you today.

To make the tag I used Curly Labels/Tags Nesting Dies, Bold Florals Mini Stencil, Faith – Typografia In Faith stamp

and Flutter Zen 1 Layering Butterfly Die.

Check out the COUPON code below.

Thanks for stopping by!

AAA Cards Game #114: Tic Tac Toe

Hi! I’m back with a fun new challenge for AAA Cards.

 

Special tips for competing (and being eligible to win) in this game:

  1. As always, we’re looking for Clean and Simple (CAS) greeting cards, BUT for this game please make sure to complete one line of the Tic Tac Toe board above.
  2. As always and for all of our games our definition of Clean and Simple means that white space should not be patterned, embossed or textured in any way at all.

Our sponsor:

STAMPlorations™ Blog

Here’s my one-layer card. I used GOLD, ONE-LAYER and MASKING. (I also used a colored cardbase and blue.) Anyhow, besides “flowers” and “watercolors” I think that I filled every other square. Which, of course, was not the challenge, but it was fun to see how many of the boxes I could tic!

I’ve been trying to NOT use flowers on ALL of my cards. I seem to use flowers and butterflies a lot.I’d like to have some masculine cards in my stash. What do you think? I really wanted to fit some water-colored flowers on in the background before stenciling, but I resisted. 🙂

I used STAMPlorations Chevron Crazy – ARTplorations Stencil and a die from the For the Birds die set.

I also used the “Be Strong” stamp from the Typografia in Faith collection.

 

Be sure to stop by the AAA Cards challenge blog to enjoy my teammate’s super Clean and Simple Cards.

I hope that you enjoyed visiting today and I hope that you’ve been inspired to play along.

Thanks for stopping by!
Grace & Peace,
Melissa

I made a stencil using the die and used it for this next card.

Be sure to check out the super projects that some of the other STAMPgirl DT members made over at the STAMP blog.

STAMPlorations March Challenge – All About Spring and Faith

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

No automatic alt text available.

You’ve probably heard by now 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.

Here’s my card using STAMPlorations: Faith – Typografia In FaithBig Bloom Factory and CUTplorations: Flutter Zen 1 Layering Dies.

Lots of masking, stamping, a rainbow of color, a great sentiment stamp and a surprise of hidden butterflies.

So, our theme for the February challenge is All About Spring and Faith! What does that make you think of?

I had a lot of fun making this card. I hope that you enjoyed seeing it and have been inspired to create something for this month’s challenge. Take a look at what some of the DT STAMPgirls created.

Thanks for stopping by!
