Celebrating STAMPlorations 4th Birthday!

Hello Crafty Friends!

I am back again with two more cards as my DT contribution to the STAMPlorations Birthday Celebrations. Both of them are very CAS and along the lines of a two in one.

First up is a super adorable shaker card ...

... made using the new Gift Builder #2 CUTplorations Dies in combination with the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies and a sentiment from the Celebrate Artsy set.

I simply cut the solid gift from the white card, backed it with acetate and layered the pink die-cuts on top.

My next card uses the pink circle shape and the 'left overs' from die-cutting the pink bits for my first card ...

... for more definition, I stamped the Zinnia - large on the square piece of the gift, added a white bow and a shadow layered Congrats sentiment.

What can I say about the new release? It's amazing, I absolutely LOVE the dies and Floral Sprays stamps. There are some pretty cool word dies and stamps too, one of my favourites is 'Prosit'. You can check them out in the shop here

Now comes the best bit, we all know how generous Shery is ... and to celebrate STAMPlorations 4th Birthday all stamps, dies and stencils including the new release will be on sale at 15% off, no coupon needed.
