STAMPlorations 3rd birthday blog hop - day 7


Well it's the last day of the big party. STAMPlorations is celebrating Birthday #3.  And be sure to stop by the Inspiration Post from today cuz we're also celebrating Shery R's birthday today ;) There's even a linky party where you can hook up and celebrate with us!

Did you see the new CUTplorations line in the store? I've got a card for you today using the new CUTplorations Word Dies.


Stamped white CS with "happy" from Blossom Overture with gray dye ink and then die cut it using the new CUTplorations Crazy Stitched Rectangles. Die cut the Word Die from watercolor paper and craft foam, leaving it in the negative to watercolor it so that some color would mingle and pool around the cut edges. When it was dry I adhered it to the foam and then assembled the card, adding a touch of washi for interest.

I'm sharing my card at:
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
Paru's Card Making Challenge - Birthday Card
 Addicted to Stamps and More - Challenge #200
Sunday Stamps - Sketch Challenge

And since I can't bear to throw anything away, I put this card together with my leftovers. Dry embossed a Crazy Stitched Rectangle into a kraft cardbase, stamped a sentiment from Vignette: Chevron and Arrows and then added the negative pieces of watercolor paper and foam.


Have you celebrated with us yet? Hope you enjoyed the week, today's the last day :( There's a linky party with prizes over on the blog, and prizes for comments along the way too. Help us celebrate, won't you?

Reminds me about the German flag! Are you turning into a German? And never ever throw out left-overs - would be a shame! Cool cards!

Colorful sentiment pops out so well on a lighter bg! And a great idea to use the leftover too! In fact the second card is my favorite :)

A positive-negative duo that has me smiling; another lesson in the importance of keeping 'everything' (my epic messes pile is getting rather large *grin*). Loving the birthday die...you've 'enabled' me to order it...
