Amazing happy mail arrived at my house this week: a whole bunch of FABULOUS stamps from STAMPlorations, and to say I'm excited to use them is a gargantuan understatement. Each set has like a zillion stamps *hand clapping wildly* and at the moment, I'm so overwhelmed I hardly know where to begin. Let's just say this: STAMPlorations stamps-stravaganzas are going to be happening...and here's a start.
My debut of three of my STAMPlorations stamps are heading to
Muse #69, where Cornelia's cool painted card piqued my attention...
Because I used a floral stamp strip, I'm also entering STAMPlorations May Challenge: Stamps and Flowers
Over at Chaitali's blog (she is so effervescent!), we have a plethora of Iron Craft themed challenges to choose from, based on the first series of guests she's interviewed (check these out: incredibly entertaining). I selected Iron Craft Challenge Week: Inspiration 5, where the "happy" and colours from the Winnie and Walter set below are 'replicated' in my card.
Finally, off to Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes
Ready? Now remember...this is an initial dabble with my new arrivals. More practice required to do them full justice, and yes indeed, I'm up for 'more practice' with these gems. Awesome stamps...simply awesome!!
Two photos - this first one shows the embossed happy...
Hmmm, now why did I stamp Make Today crooked? Oh well, typical wonky me. I think I was influenced by another stamp in the collection: "Paint Outside the Lines". Yes, that must be way, and yep, that's my story and I'm sticking to it...
Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments make my day!
