STAMPlorations inspiration #366

Hi there STAMP friends. Time again for a Tuesday inspiration post from the STAMPlorations inspiration gals. 

One more make with the "chicks and carrots" Easter vibe ...


Distress Oxides

Super CAS here. I wanted to use up the strips I'd used when masking this card, so I die cut some little chicks from it. Found a mama hen and a fitting sentiment in Fowl Play and voila. Of course, washi up top is always a good idea.

STAMPlorations inspirations #365

Happy day, STAMP friends! Time again for a Tuesday inspiration post from the STAMPlorations inspiration gals. 

Still feeling the "chicks and carrots" Easter vibe around here;)

Distress Oxides

Inspired by Nicole W, I'm having fun with stencils. First I inked yellow through the Bold Florals stencil (its pattern is a bit smaller). Then I removed that stencil and put down the Peony (large open spaces) and inked orange through it. I think the result is kind of dreamy.

STAMPlorations inspiration #364

Happy April friends. First time this month I'm popping in for a Tuesday inspiration post from the STAMPlorations inspiration gals. We had a lovely two weeks in South Tyrol in the snow and then apparently brought Covid home with us so it took me a while to get back into the swing of things. Hope you are well.

I'm feeling the "chicks and carrots" Easter vibe around here. That's reflected in my cards this month ;)

Circular Two stencil
Distress Oxides

Inspired by Nicole W, I'm having fun with stencils. Today I masked off portions of the stencil while inking to get the yellow and orange stripes through the design. Added a die cut and a negative die cut sentiment and called it busy enough ;)

STAMPlorations cas cards challenge april

Welcome to the April STAMPlorations CAS Cards challenge and that ain't no joke ;)


As always the challenge is to create any CAS card but we always give you an optional color twist. This month's colors are blue and purple.

Must have been the flowers in the inspo that took me down a sympathy card route. And it seems I'm always needing them :(

gold embossing powder

Got those perfect little rectangles cut from stash backgrounds using the tiniest tag die. Gold embossed and fussy cut the rose and mounted it over the tags. Voila!

CAS card tip: I ignored the sweet spot rule here but I think putting all the design items in the middle third of the card works too .

I'm looking forward to your CAS card creations this month! Your project might be chosen as one of the prize winners. Check out how the DT was inspired by this month's photo hereAnd don't forget about my STAMPlorations discount code STAMPGIRLMARIA for 20% off should I ever inspire you to do some shopping ;)  Thanks for stopping over today. See you over at the gallery.

STAMPlorations inspiration #362

Hello again. Time for a Tuesday inspiration post from the STAMPlorations inspiration gals.

Still inspired by the style of Lagom, organic graphic/color blocking, I pulled out more scraps...


I die cut various scraps with the landscape dies in various angles. Then I played until I had the "rays" the way I liked them around the stamped scene.

STAMPlorations inspiration #361

Hello again. Time for a Tuesday inspiration post from the STAMPlorations inspiration gals.

Ready for some more"go bold or go home"? I really have no explanation for this card. Except I grabbed some scraps from my pink, orange and yellow drawers and this happened.


Scraps and a glue stick. Done.

I was inspired by the style of Lagom again. Organic graphic.

more scrap strips

Did you catch my tutorial yesterday at STAMPlorations? More strips. This time torn from scrap paper I used when swatching inks.

And did you catch that I'm in the process of moving my craft room? And rediscovering all the stuff I have? Who's been around cardmaking for a few years and can recognize the PP I found in my craft room and used on my card?!?

chipboard stickers

So I adhered the stripped, die cut tag to two pieces of Tim Holtz Ideology paper (I think it's so old it just might be trendy again with its retro colors and images). Did you recognize it?

Then I pulled out various stickers I have and decide to pop a few onto my card to jazz it up. Oh, and a little punched butterfly from my stash too.

Let me tell you, this card is certainly not perfect, but it was FUN to make. I was inspired by watching Barbara just have fun pulling out supplies and scraps and put 'em all together. And boy do I have supplies and scraps...
