Feel Alive

Hello Crafty Friends!

It's Inspiration Time over at STAMPlorations. This week my teamies and I are showcasing stamps designed by STAMPlorations owner Shery under her label 'Shery Russ Designs'.

To banish the snow and ice from the East and to look forward to Spring and the beginning of the caravan season, I decided to work with the Charmed Cherry Blossoms and Wanderlust stamp sets plus the tag from the Tag O'Coffee CUTplorations Dies to create a card capturing the joy of going on little adventures.

Here it is ...

The tag looks a bit like a window into the future. I used my stamping tool to get the stamped and masked cherry blossoms well aligned over the layers.

For the tag, I used a bit of marker watercolouring and sponging for the hills. The sentiment itself is stamped in Elegant Eggplant, an almost black purple rather than black. I waned to highlight that we feel most alive where colour is.

As mentioned earlier, this week we are showcasing stamps designed by Shery under her label 'Shery Russ Designs'. To mix it up a little, all stamps, stencils and dies - except from the Retiring category- are reduced by 10% this week in the STAMPlorations Shop, no coupon needed. Using my personal discount code STAMPGIRLMONIKA at checkout will give you an added 20% off. I would love for you to take advantage of this great offer.

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. Pop over to see what my teamies created and to leave a comment for your entry into their prize draw.

That's it from me for today. Have a lovely week!
