Hello friends and fellow crafters :) we at STAMPlorations are back with a ton of inspiration for all you awesome creative people, using our latest April/ May 2017 Release. As always we have 4 new awesome sets from each of the Stamp lines :) I am excited as I get to share one of my newest set :)
Displaying aprilstampspotlighthop.png
There are prizes to be won as well :) We will draw 2 winners -- 1 commenter will win her choice of stamp set and 1 commenter will win a $15 gift certificate to the store. Winners will be drawn from comments left on the STAMPlorations blog and participating designers blogs.

Commenting closes on Monday, May 8, with the winners announced on May 10.

Let me begin the inspiration parade :) The newest set from Shirley is so awesome. We all needed a perfume based stamp set and she made it :)
Using Parfumerie
To make this card I masked and stamped the images on a watercolor card panel and water colored it loosely to give it a painting like look :) Kept the colors simple. I am loving this set :) Besides, the new set I have used Groovy Shoes and Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting dies.
Here is another click ...

Next up is the set designed by Becca... oooo those sentiments, I love those and those big bold flowers just gorgeous. Let me show you what I created.
To make this card I stamped, fuzzy cut and colored the flowers with Sharpie Markers and leaves with Spectrum Noir Markers. On the card base I added a patterned paper which inspired me on the colors. I took a white card stock and cut the lower edge using Lacy edges and Borders dies. I adhered it all together and finished the card by stamping the sentiment.
Here's another look...

Now the card that I am gonna show is from the Shery Russ Designs... did you know the girl in this set was drawn by Shery's Dad years ago. What a proud moment for Shery to convert it into a stamp. Such a cool and trendy looking girl :)
To make this card, I took a patterned paper panel and taking cues from it I inked the three die cut flowers. Keeping the girl as the focus I assembled it all together :) Besides the new set I have used Trendy Spring Bloom dies. Here is one more look...

And finally, I get to show you my latest set :)
I had to do some more water coloring and I always love the look of No Line water coloring. I stamped the image on a watercolor card stock with some light shade of Distress ink multiple times. I the fuzzy cut it. Next I did some water coloring. Adhered a wood grain patterned paper on card base and the added the water colored panel.
Here are a couple more clicks...


Hope you enjoyed all my creations. Don't forget to comment here and on rest of the blogs in the hop for your chance to win :) Head on HERE...
