exploration STAMPlorations sentiment builders: celebrate (YNS, PCC) and giveaway

This is my last day of exploration of the latest STAMPlorations release and I'm using a set near and dear to my heart cuz I got to brainstorm some of the words to include in SENTIMENT BUILDERS: Celebrate! Thanks, Shery.

I'm stuck on the rainbow after seeing this inspiration photo from Your Next Stamp - #14


 so this is what happened!


Distress inked white CS with rainbow-y stripes. Heat embossed "celebrate" onto BGYOR and die cut "you" from VIB ;)  Stamped the smaller words in black before adhering the rainbow panel over a scrap of gold/white striped tissue paper and then adding the die cut.

Since it's Anything Goes over at Paper Crafting Challenges #13 (with a cool rainbow-y header!) I'm hooking up there too.

Before you go... how about a giveaway? Sweet Shery R. is letting me give away one of the stamp sets from the latest release. Wonky cakes? Sentiment builders? Tell me which set tickles your fancy. I'll choose a random winner from all the comments left on this post by midnight EST Sunday, July 13.


Hope I've inspired you. I certainly appreciate you coming by. Have a great weekend (and don't forget to watch soccer on Sunday :)

  11. Hallo Maria....
    eine tolle und so farbenfrohe Karte *hammerg***
    Da ich euch schon länger "beobachte" *lol und es mir die Set´s sowieso angetan haben könnte ich mich nicht entscheiden,
    allerdings denke ich das ich in Deutschland besser mit den Wonky cakes zurecht käme.
    Also ich hoffe dann einfach mal was Fortuna vorhat...
    Herzlichen Dank an dich und Shery das ihr dieses Giveaway macht.
    LG hellerlittle

  13. I love all four sets of cards that you made and shared this week. Aren't all the stamps in this new release great?! The colours you use are FAB. Wish I was brave enough to go that bold, but it totally works.
    My fave has to be the Celebrate Artsy set.

  15. Our granddaughter got married last w/e and instead of the traditional wedding cake (although don't know how traditional anymore), she had tiers of cupcakes. We're trusting a cupcake makes everything better--for many years to come.
