STAMPlorations january release - day 5


It's Day 5 with the STAMPlorations Inspiration DT. Ready for the dies in action? If you want, you can check out the whole blog hop lineup in this post.

Until February 10, all 4 stamps and 3 plate dies from the January release are 5% off. (Plus you can use the 20% discount code in my sidebar on top ;)

The dies are the stars of today's post. Meet Lowercase Alphabet Plate, Uppercase Alphabet Plate and Numbers Plate. Talk about versatile - get individual positive characters in one fell swoop, or use the negative for layering or dry embossing a BG or stenciling, or combine both like I did in my last card today. But first things first.


You'll have to excuse me for these next two cards - my mind was totally besieged by "the media" craziness of the past few weeks and these two designs happened using the "leftovers" of the alpha dies, Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle dies and Sketchy Alphabet stamps.


"I'd like to thank"  La La Land and my Zig clean color brushes for the watercolory goodness in the supporting role. And my white gel pen. Used Lowercase Alphabet Plate letters.


You probably know who gave me the fodder for this "great" card. Thanks go out to the Donald and my Copics, with Scribbly Splattery Grunge and a strip of vellum making up the Cabinet. Used Uppercase Alphabet Plate letters.

Still keepin' it cheeky, I did this with the Numbers Plate.


Gettin' a Dr. Seuss vibe? Used the balloons from A Snarky Birthday to You for a background. Then I laid on the numbers and filled the "5" and "0" with gold foil positives. Over the top of that I added some stacked Alphas leftovers on vellum.

See the other die cut ideas from the DT in this post.  There are prizes up for grabs for comments on our blogs, and the STAMP facebook and Instagram pages! Leave a comment by the 7th and check back on the 10th on the STAMplorations blog to see if you are a winner.
