STAMPlorations sketch #25

Welcome to the first STAMPlorations sketch challenge of 2015!

Looks like lotsa layering, right? I tried to make it one layer. And nearly succeeded.


Went birthday rather than Valentines. Took the sets, Rosebuds, Sentiment Builders: Celebrate and Bold Sentiments: Hello and did some stamping, masking, inking and embossing. Couldn't resist adding that strip of printed vellum, thus adiosing the one layer card ;)

Wanna see the reason for the crappy lighting? See that wonderful white stuff on the front lawn?!


The challenge runs until January 16. Here's what you can win. Winner (picked by a challenge design team member) will get 3 digi stamps and a guest designer spot. (Be sure to check out our guest designer Kim M.'s creation for this challenge here.) In addition, 2 Top picks (picked by a challenge design team member) will also be invited to guest design.

Don't miss the new products and deals over at STAMPlorations.

And since I've made a birthday card, I'm hooking up to the first Seize the Birthday challenge of 2015.

The embossed rosebuds over those gloriously vibrant colours are so splendid, Maria ... first time I've seen them used like this (if I recall correctly!!!) ... can always count on you for a wonderfully creative way of looking at stamps ... gorgeous! No snow here yet ... just freezing fog! Anita :)

Gorgeous! As for the snow...ick! I'm staying with my mom for the next two weeks, and we're in the midst of deep freeze. Today, with wind chill, a 'balmy' -30. Yeah...brrrr!

Beautiful fresh colors! Love to see your bright card in this dull time of year. (No snow over here, just plain old rain and a cloudy sky :( )
