Hello Crafty Friends!
Welcome to DAY 5 of the STAMPlorations Stamp and Coordinating Dies Release. Yes, no more fiddly fuzzy cutting, each one of theses sets has a coordinating die set for easy crafting.
Here are my makes ...
Here are my makes ...
First up is The Bee's Knees' Birds Of Paradise on one of my Brusho backgrounds. This one has a bit of golden shimmer paint in it. I stamped, coloured and die cut my birds (Birds Of Paradise Coordinating CUTplorations Dies), stamped the sentiment and cut it into pieces which I edged with black before layering everything on a skinny card adding doodles as I went along.
Next up is Shery's Bloom Happy set with its Coordinating CUTplorations Dies which I combined with a stamp from the Grunge Floral Strips set. I stamped the Floral Strip in Crushed Curry onto my yellow Brusho background, die cut the postage stamp from a piece of matching spritzed card, stamped my sentiment and postage stamp out in black, die cut the flower and layered it all up. To finish, I added a touch of sparkly nail varnish to my flower.
Another Brusho background is helping me to showcase Becca's (Big Grins) latest set Buttercups And Butterflies which again comes with Coodinating CUTplorations Dies. I chose to work with the large buttercup, I simply love its boldness, and one of the sentiments. I stamped and coloured the buttercup, die cut it using the coordinating die and attached it to my base, a print I took off the ARTplorations Bubble Dance Stencil whilst working with my Brushos. To finish, I doodled an outline border, attached my sentiment and added glitter highlights to my buttercup.
Last but not least is this super cut giraffe from Dee's Artsy Impressions' Tweet Love set. I used another one of my yellow and emerald Brusho backgrounds, partially stenciled ARTplorations Oh, My Stars! in Crushed Curry and towards the bottom stamped the little stars from the Balloons And Banners set in matching ink. I coloured my giraffe with Promarkers and die cut her using the Coordinating CUTplorations Die. I popped her up on the card, doodled my border and finished off with a little sentiment.
