Playing Around

Hi Everyone,

It is Inspiration Time again over at STAMPlorations. My project came about when I was playing with some dies in preparation for making some much needed Christmas cards. Well, what can I say ... the first one ended up being a birthday card instead ...

I die cut the star border from cream Centura Pearl card and combined it with stamps from the Balloons and Banners set. I stamped coloured and fuzzy cut my balloon, stamped my sentiment in black Memento and the little stars in Pumpkin Pie before layering up as shown.

As I quite liked the green - orange combo, I decided to finally venture into making a Christmas card.

Using stamps from the Joyful and Sentiment Builders: Christmas and New Year to make up my sentiment, I simply stamped my sentiment and added some tiny die cut stars. A very quick and easy card to make.

Should you wish to CASE any of my or my teamies cards, please link them up at the Inspiration CASE Playground. You find the Linky at the end of each Inspiration Post on the STAMPlorations Blog ... hope to see you there.

Just in case you missed it, here is another look at my card from yesterday's post ...

That's it from me for today. I shall be back soon.

Have a lovely day!
