Belated STAMPlorations 7th Birthday Party – day 3

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today we continue the STAMPlorations belated 7th Birthday Party with day 3 full of inspiration and possibilities to play along and win some prizes!

For the 3rd day project I created another slimline card with the new Slimline stencils at the STAMPlorations store. I also used the Bloomfully Sparkle stamp (also a new stamp in the line) set on this card.

I used the Mosaic in Squares stencil to create the background for the card. For coloring I used red, pink, orange and yellow Distress Inks to gradually change the color on the background. Then I added a velvet ribbon, a piece of chipboard and the rose image stamped with the Bloomfully Sparkle Stamp. I colored the stamped image with Distress Inks also. Adn for finishing touches I added a sentiment from the same stamp set and some green sequins. Everything got mounted on a dark pink cardstock in the end.

I am so much enjoying these slimline stencils and creating with them and Distress Inks at the moment. This is something I love going back to from time to time. Simple techniques, yet you can do so much.

Now hop over to the Day 3 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!!

Belated STAMPlorations 7th Birthday Party – day 2

Hello and happy Tuesday!! Today we start into the second day of the 7th birthday celebrations at STAMPlorations. Are you ready??

For todays post I created a slimline card. This time I used the Leaf Prints Slimline stencil. This is one of my favorite stencil from this line!

Some details on how I created the card: I used a piece of white cardstock and placed the stencil on top. Next I applied two tones of green Distress Ink thru the stencil very randomly. After that I took a dot stamp and added dark green Distress Ink dots thru the stencil onto the leaves.

The Smile word is a die cut available at the STAMPlorations store. I die cut the word from dark green cardstock and added some green sequins for decor.

The stenciled piece is mounted on a dark green cardstock from which I created the card base. Easy peasy!

Now hop over to the Day 2 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!!

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!

https://stamplorations.blogspot.com/2020/10/belated-birthday-1.ht

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!!

Happy birthday card – STAMPlorations

Hello and happy Sunday! Here is a little heads up for next week! Be sure to come and visit my blog on daily basis next week, because we are celebrating the amazing STAMPlorations 7th birthday. Make sure you are part of this belated party :)!

And to get you ready for tomorrow, I´m sharing a bonus card already today. Just to advertise next week a bit already and share a happy birthday card with you. Also, while you are here, do check out the STAMPlorations blog for MORE!

I know Shery often uses these colours on her one layer cards, so I´m sending my birthday wished to her with this card :).

For this card I used the Flair and Leaf Prints 4 slimline stencils and a clear stamp set „Bloomfully Forever“ from the STAMPlorations store. The colours I used a Distress Inks and Hero Arts black stamp ink.The flowers and the sequin are from my older stash. Yay, again stash busting here :). I really, really need to do that and cards are such a good way to combine old with new product.

So be ready for tomorrow, when we start with the celebration week! See you then! Have a great Sunday!

Happy crafting,

Go after your dreams

Such a good reminder for the end of the week, right? Happy Friday and remember to start moving towards your dreams, bit by bit, even if they are just baby steps you take per day. When you look back a year later, you will be proud of yourself!

I know I am. I have „grown“ so much during the past year. I think it´s the age and all the trouble I´ve been thru. I´ve slowly developed a „be kind, but take no sh..“-attitude. I am feeling so much better because of it. And no, I have not changed into an angry old lady, no, I am just setting boundaries!

Here is a card for today:

It´s pretty easy to create, but still pops, if you know what I mean? It´s the glitter and the purple I think. A great combo. I used a STAMPlorations stencil (slimline) for this card and Nuvo green glitter paste. I love that stuff :).

The flower is mounted on white cardstock, because of it´s see-thru-nature. That way it stands out better. And the stamped sentiment is from a STAMPlorations stamp set.

Next week will be exciting! The STAMPlorations belated 7th birthday week is coming up so be sure to follow it. Plenty of fun and also prizes to be won :).

Wishing you a fabulous weekend!
