STAMPlorations August Release - Day 3


For Day 3, we are showcasing Fond Expressions 2. I totally love the font on this set.

I am addicted to the Faux Metal Paper Technique!


Isn't that shimmer fabulous! ;)

Now, you need do 2 things; comment here on my post, and then pop on over to the STAMPlorations Blog to comment on the other Designer's cards.  There will be 5 (!) commenters, randomly drawn from the Designer's blogs, that will each win the stamp set featured for the day!!  There will also be 1 commenter from the STAMPlorations Blog that will win a $25 gift certificate. -- Pretty generous of Shery I'm thinking!

Check out what the rest of the team made! You'll find links to all our projects here.
 See you tomorrow for Day 4!


Thanks for stopping by~
