{Spotlight Project} Faux Cut-Across Die Cutting


Hi, Cornelia here today. You may have seen those word dies where you can cut across the entire card and add different types of paper either on top or at the bottom and have the word in a contrasting color in between. I thought I can re-create that with a regular word die.

{Inspiration Project Post #135}

Hello STAMPlorations Friends! This week the Inspiration girls are showcasing stamps designed by STAMPlorations owner Shery under her label Shery Russ Designs.

To get your creative juices flowing, the girls made a variety of projects using stamps, stencils and dies designed by Shery.

All of Shery's stamp sets will be on sale for the week - no coupon needed; the discount is automatically applied. And if you happen to have a coupon code, such as a personal discount code for being a stamp club subscriber, you can use the code to get an even better deal.

All of Shery's stamp sets will be reduced by 10% except for A Cup Of Roses and Many Blessings Stamps & Coordinating Die Set both of which will be 20% off until May 29.

We'll still randomly draw a winner from all the comments left on our Inspiration Posts, so have a look and leave a comment for your entry to win a $10 gift certificate to the store.

May Challenge Mid-Month Reminder - More Inspiration

Hey, everyone! Here's your mid-month reminder to play in the current Theme & Sketch Challenge. Our theme is STAMPS & ALPHABET. A number of ways you can go with the theme. You can use designer paper with alphabet backgrounds, alphabet dies and stamps, big letters, one letter (or two, or a few!), alphabet blocks, big word sentiments...If you end up with a card that's also clean and simple, make sure to link it up to the May CAS Card Challenge


And here's our fun sketch to get inspired by as well:

{Spotlight Project} One Stamp and Die, Two Different Ways with Deepti!


Hello friends! Deepti here and welcome to another spotlight feature. Today I am sharing how we can use a stamp and coordinating die to make two different designs :) Here's how the cards look:




May CAS Card Challenge Reminder

Hey, STAMPlorations friends! Here's to remind you that this month's CAS Card Challenge is in full swing. It's anything CAS goes with feminine colors as the optional color twist. And if you were inspired by our sketch and/or theme this month, make sure you link up your creation to to our May Monthly Theme and/or Sketch Challenge as well. If your card has diecuts, has a STAMPlorations product, and was inspired by the photo here, link it up in the May CUTplorations Challenge gallery. And lastly, if your card has STAMPlorations products (stamps, stencils, and/or dies) as the main attraction, link it up to our Never-Ending Anything Goes Challenge. Yep, more chances for prizes we have up for grabs :o)



The STAMPlorations girls are back with cards to inspire you. Check them out and we hope you'll come play!

{Spotlight Project} Shirley's Seeing Things Again


Do you use a journal or book just for playing around in? I have a couple of small journals in which I occasionally (as in, when I remember to) blot off any inks and paints I've been using, then I stamp or scribble in them later. They've been neglected of late, so I picked one up, started flicking through it, and saw one page that I thought would work perfectly with my City Girl stamp set.
