CUTplorations may

Well hi, hello and welcome back to nearly-normal programming at STAMPlorations, friends! Hope you stuck with us during our little "Winter" break. We are back this month with all of the challenge teams. But we've got only one challenge graphic for you since we're celebrating Spring with another Things with Wings party. Ready?

Here's our inspiration photo for the May CUTplorations challenge over at STAMPlorations. 


Well. I saw that graphic and couldn't get the Bloomtangled cover plate dies out of my head. So I ran with it. Swiped some Distress Inks in ROYGBIV across cardstock and this card was born.


Although the filigrane white butterfly is only partially adhered so she can still flutter around, that solid white butterfly is actually inlaid into the cover plate die cut... not necessary, but I wanted to try something... come back in two weeks for my reminder post to see what I did with the missing portion of the cover plate die cut ;)


Hope you'll find time to join us for some die cutting fun this month over at the CUTplorations challenge. Just make a project based on our inspiration using at least one die cut. Your project might be chosen as a winner of a $15 GC to the shop. Check out how the CUTplorations DT was inspired by this month's photo here.

And don't forget about my STAMPlorations discount code STAMPGIRLMARIA for 20% off should you feel a shopping spree coming on ;)

I'm joining these challenges:

Basteltraum - Mother's Day/Flowers
