Belated STAMPlorations 7th Birthday party – day 1

Hello everyone and happy Monday! Today we start the belated STAMPlorations 7th birthday celebration. Happy birthday STAMPlorations and here´s to many, many more to come!!!

Here is my first project share for the celebration day 1 – a card created using some of the new Slimline stencils and Monika Skinner´s brand new Flexi Template Line!

For this card I used the Flair Slimline Stencil with the Oval Flexi Template and I wonder if you can see how I used it?

Yes, I first covered the whole cardstock piece with orange Distress Ink and then I placed the oval circles into the middle to protect that area and splattered water around the unprotected areas. That way the splatters are only outside the inner circle. For creating the inner part, I first placed the most outer piece of the template onto the previously water splattered area and then placed the Flair stencil on top. I added only small details to the oval in the middle with the stencil and red ink. Then I outlined the pattern with a white gel pen and added stamping and faux stitching around the ovals edges.

I love this card! The templates are so much fun to play with!!! I am only starting to discover what can be done with them!! You should definitely try them out!

Now hop over to the Day 1 post at STAMPlorations blog. There are plenty of prizes for grabs and a linky party going on. Also be sure to create a celebrations themed project and link it up! Lovelies, come and comment and link and play along!!! It´s a party week at STAMPlorations!!
