STAMPlorations Grand Finale September Release


Today is the grand finale for the STAMPlorations September Release. Seriously, I mean, Grand Finale!  The entire team has created 6 cards [each] showcasing the new CUTplorations Word Dies for the holiday.  They have done such such an amazing job using the different word dies.  After I show you mine, I will link you to the STAMPlorations Blog, and you can see just what I am sayin!  Unless otherwise linked, most of my images have come from the Warm Hands, Warm Hearts stamp set, and I used the matching dies on some too.



On to my cards; [you can click the word graphic for quick ordering]

I just adore the font of the MC.  I also used one of the CUTplorations Luggage Tags dies, and the Crazy Double Stitched Rectangle dies.

For this card, I used my MISTI and placed the images randomly on the [MISTI] lid, inked up, and stamped.  I then just colored the images with my Copics.  Once done, I taped the word cut over the top, and cut it out.  As you can see by the close up photo, [by doing this technique], you capture part of the colored image onto the words.

I also used last year's Holiday Sketches; Christmas Bells.  It went perfectly with this word die.

I intentionally used a yellow foam pad [also cut out] to go with the warm.  If you look closely, you can see I have some glittery hills behind my sleigh.  [CUTplorations also carries Stitched Snow Hills]

I mixed the Holidays die with the Happy Die that CUTplorations also offers.

I was also given the ATC/Gift Card Envelope to create with.

 This die folds into an ATC size envelope.  SO CUTE!  I used some designer paper to make this envie, and decorated with the above products..

And for this one, I used a piece of acetate paper for a clear envelope.  I covered a playing card with some other designer paper and put that, along with some sequins, in this tiny envie.  I will also be adding a gift card to this for a fellow stamper.  She will be able to use the sequins on one of her cards, since they are loosely put into the envelope.  A little additional gift.

This is a crazy long post for me!  That said, now you can pop on over to the STAMPlorations Blog.  Shery is running fun challenges [with great prizes], and there is all kinds of information for you. [Sales prices, free shipping, contests,] Plus, you can see all the other Designer's AWESOME projects they have made!  There is also a prize for a random commenter, so don't forget to leave one here too.  

Have Fun!


Thanks for stopping by~

All so bright and beautiful, but there is something I really love about the Jingle Bells card. Maybe it's the round mat? It all goes together so comfortably.

From one delight to another in this array of gorgeousness, Vicki! Talk about lighting my festive spirit! Not only have you showcased the new dies/stamps wonderfully, but you've sparked ideas for some of the older sets - like the bells-- which I have in my collection. Can't wait for my order of 'newcomers' to arrive, because I see a couple cards here (okay...nearly all!) that I'd love to case. The Warm Hands, Warm Hearts...kicking myself for not including them in my order! Added to the next time list after seeing your creativity with them...
