5 to go (AAA, Craft Stamper)

Have you seen the July release/birthday blog hop happening over at STAMPlorations? You might want to check it out. There are some fabby stamp sets in the release and you could win some too.

I've made two more invitations. Green. Me? Maybe this can be blamed on the number of soccer pitches that have bombarded my eyes lately ;)  Actually, it probably started with this card a few days ago. Do you get a sky, pitch and soccer ball vibe? Well it continues with this card.

I used STAMPlorations Sketch #14 again and the negative leftovers from the Dieversions die cut. In a nod to my teamie Shirley B., I've again tried the bleach blocking technique from Craft Stamper's Take It Make It challenge and this time it worked! See the faint "party time" which I randomly stamped with my die cut craft foam and water?

And I'm CASEing teamie Vicki D. cuz that's what we're supposed to do over at AAA Cards this week.

Kept the color scheme going in this next one. And used up another leftover negative die cut (notice the mixy matchy this time).

On this card I've used the STAMPlorations Celebrate Artsy set to create a flower. Don't ya love these "crayon strokes"?

Have a great weekend. Happy World Cupping!

Supplies for party time:
Paper:  CS Bringmann, Neenah, PP Pebbles
Stamps: STAMPlorations 
Ink : Distress inks
Tools: die Dieversions
Other: water, scoreboard


  1. Have to admit the FIFA World Cup games are exciting. So are the two cards you have created. Party time suits them to a tee or maybe a soccer ball. LOL. Nice job Maria.

  9. "Love" would be an understatement! Those crayon strokes are AMAZING, and I just love how you've designed the sentiment center! Great cards!
