STAMPlorations inspiration #200 - yep, #200!

Welcome to a brand new Tuesday inspiration from the STAMPlorations inspiration team where the team members feature stamps from one of our talented stamp designers. And ya know what? This is my 200th inspiration post!!! Can't really believe it, but that's reason enough for a celebratory card, don't ya think?

Today I've chosen one of The Bee's Knees stamps. Who better to celebrate with than Party Girl?

StazOn ink
clear embossing powder

You may have noticed I'm letting January's CUTplorations challenge inspire my cards this month. So out came my neon pigment inks.


And then there's the Bokeh challenge over at CAS Mix it Up. You don't have to ask me twice to have a play at bokeh. Why not color an image with bokeh?

And then... yep and then, there's the Black Ice technique I heard about from Cornelia. See it on that die cut? Luscious! I was inspired by the second gal - her outfit and see the catwalk she is walking down? ;)


For more inspiration with Party Girl, check out this card. Or this one which I really love.

The minute I saw there was a bokeh challenge over at CAS Mix It Up, I thought of you! And wowzers Maria, you've got one incredible bokeh and black ice card going on. The colors alone make me one happy camper, but then you throw a party dress on, and take it to another level. And that black ice?....Very cool to say the least. Great card. xo Bev

I've never heard of the black ice technique before. Certainly a striking addition the this already striking card. So glad you joined us at Die Cut Divas.
