Purrfectly Stylish

Hello Crafty Friends!

Here's to looking forward to another year of crafting fun. It is Inspiration Time over at STAMPlorations, and Shery has mixed things up a little, for your benefit of course!

Each week the STAMPlorations Inspiration DT are showcasing stamps from one designer. All the stamps by that designer will be reduced by 10% for one week apart from one set which will have a 20% discount. No coupon is needed at check out, and you still can apply my personal discount code STAMPGIRLMONIKA -which doesn't expire, by the way- for an extra 20% off all stamps, dies and stencils!

This week we are showcasing stamps designed by my friend Shirley under her label 'The Bee's Knees'. All her sets will be reduced by 10% and the World Birthday Cakes set which I used in my cards here, here, here and here will be 20% off.

Of course Shery will still draw a winner at random from all the comments left on this month's Inspiration Posts over on the STAMPlorations Blog.

... back to today's project ... I used Pets and City Girl with a little help from the Luggage Tags Nesting Dies to continue my funky foam shaker card exploration ....

... and ended up with a yellow and black combo. I applied some Daffodil Delight ink on my crafting mat, spritzed with water and mopped it up with white card. On one bit I stamped 'You're Fabulous' and on the other the city block (London Milan Paris New York). When die-cutting funky foam, be aware that it does stretch, even if you die-cut it at the same time as your frame. This gave me the lovely yellow shadow. The rest is pretty straight forward ... add a 'ly' to the stamped 'purrfect', layer up and finish with a few black flower sequins.

Here is another look ...

Pop over to the STAMPlorations Blog for more inspiration and to leave a comment for your entry into their prize draw.

That's it from me for today. I shall be back soon.
Have a lovely day!
