STAMPlorations 5th Birthday Celebration!

Hi crafty peeps and welcome!
I'm super excited to be participating in
The festivities are over the top, with link up parties, prizes, freebies, flash sales,
and lots of inspiration from the STAMPGirls!!

I'm so grateful to Shery for first allowing me to be a guest designer last
year, then inviting me to be a regular designer on the Theme & Sketch design team!
Your generosity is unparalleled, and you have the kindest, biggest heart!
Big squishy hugs to you!

Today, I'm sharing three of my favorite projects along with a 
new project:

(This one is very special to me as it's the first card I 
made as a guest designer!)

I can't say I have a set style as I love to try different things. LOL!
The closest I can come to is maybe clean and layered.
Speaking of trying different things, here is my new card,
incorporating part of a Gelli print that I made a couple weeks ago.
This print uses the Layered Petals stencil.
 It's die cut using the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting dies from a larger print.
 I've used various stamps from
the Art Marks, Artsy Border Makers, and A Snarky Birthday To You sets.

and the inside:

Ah, snark. I loves me some snark! LOL!

Let's see what you can do now! I'd love to see you case one of my cards shown above,
and link it up on The STAMPlorations blog. Don't forget to link up your wishlist and 
comment on the designer's blogs for more chances at winning some great prizes!
