STAMPlorations is celebrating 8 years!

Hello and welcome crafty friends!
Today is day two of the revelry that is

Today, we are showcasing Birthday Bundle #2
and here are the two cards I've created:


I started by die cutting the main panel from the crazy double running stitch rectangle nesting dies
and using a few DO inks, sponged them over the Design Blox Template #6.
Before removing the template, I splattered white, black and gold paint over the panel.
After cleaning the template and setting the panel aside to dry, I white heat embossed 
the Blossom Sprays #5 stamp onto vellum and fussy cut.
I used vellum tape to attach it to my card, then gold heat embossed the sentiment
from Balloons and Banners onto a strip of black card stock and adhered towards
the bottom of my card. 


For my second card, I die cut the new Art Border #2 die twice on the main
panel and corner rounded the top right corner. I stamped one of the sentiments from
the See the Good stamp set then adhered to the card base. Then using some
fun card stock colors, I die cut some of the flowers and leaves from the
Trendy Spring Blooms dies, arranged and glued them to the card.
I finished by adding a rhinestone in the center of the stacked flower.

  1. The die cutting is very cool. I want that...

  2. I love the vellum over the stenciled background. I really like how that looks. And the die is great for the border. I think that has to go on my wish list.

  3. Both cards are lovely! I adore the 2nd card using the new die (my fave of
    the release) and using the floral from the Trendy Blooms set (that I have).
    That's a really pretty design.

  4. Love both cards, Love how you can still see the design of your card through the vellum and love how you used the die on your second card. Looks so good with that flower die.

  5. Two absolutely beautiful cards! Gorgeously done, my friend!

  6. Lovely use of the border die on your second card, and I love the stamped vellum!

  7. Seeing these stencils, stamps and dies used on cards are really bringing them to life. Just so beautiful in every way!

  8. The florals on vellum are gorgeous against the graphic background, love the way you've used the Border on your second card.

  9. Awesome cards! Love the floral design and the border die!

  10. Such a beautiful stenciled background on your first card, and I love the die design you created on your second card!
