CUTplorations May

Hello Crafty Friends!

A new month ... an new challenge, over at STAMPlorations the May CUTplorations Challenge has started. Here is my DT piece ...

How did it come about? Well, the CUTplorations Chellenge is a monthly challenge requiring you to use die(s) and take inspiration from the monthly changing photo which for this month is ...

So what have we got?
  • flowers
  • hearts
  • leaves
  • sunshine
  • bricks/wall
  • colours
As you can see, I went with ...
  • bricks
  • colours green pink, grey and white
  • hearts
  • the flowers reminded me of bunting

I stamped the brick pattern, added the stamped, watercoloured and fuzzy cut bunting, my die-cut wonderful from a blended piece of card, the word day cut from white card using the Lowercase Alphabet Plate Die, the small hearts from the Clustered Hearts Die, a bit of stamped sentiment, splattering, doodling and twine to finish.

Pop over to the STAMPlorations Blog to see how my teamies interpreted the photo and to link up your entry too. There are prizes for the winner ($10 gift certificate) and the two runner-ups ($5gift certificate each) as voted by the DT plus, if there are 30 or more entries, one randomly drawn winner can choose any 2 of the CUTplorations Word/Phrase Dies the DT used in their projects. That's well worth creating for, what do you think?

That's it from me for now.
Have a lovely day!

  1. Brilliant take on the inspiration picture!

  2. Love how you've used all the stamps and die sets together. I have got the brick stamp and now I've seen how you've used it I am inspired to get it out! Great layout and clever take on the inspiration photo x
