STAMPlorations 5th Birthday Celebration.- Love Today

Happy Birthday STAMPlorations. 5 years and going strong. 
This next month makes 2 years being a STAMPgirl, 
and I am loving every  minute of it.

 All this month the STAMPgirls will be sharing 3 of their favorite projects 
plus a new one just for the Birthday Celebration. 
You have the opportunity to win prizes and have fantastic deals.

Let me start by saying that picking just 3 favorites was hard,
 because I love all the projects I have made
 with my STAMPlorations stash. 

I made this tea- box using 

I made the tag with 

 I made this card using 

OK, now on to my new project, which I might have to say
it is possibly my new favorite. I made this easel card using






I used the tag die (Tag O Coffee) to cut out some floral dp. 
I used the Bubble Dance stencil and a black pen.
 (Can you tell by looking at my stencil, how much love it gets?)

After I stenciled the bubbles, I added highlights with white acrylic paint.
 I painted a line on left of bubble and put a dot in the top right hand side.

I did the same thing to the base of the card. I didn't use all the 
bubbles on the stencil, just places where I wanted it on the base.

I stamped the Blossom like a Butterfly butterfly onto a piece of cardstock.
 I watercolored it and fussy cut it out. 
I then shaped it over my fingers to give it a 3-d look.  

I used one of the Tags # 1 Nesting dies to cut out some more of the 
floral dp and black cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from Trendy Butterflies.
 I attached these tags with twine. Also used on this card, handmade roses,
 braided twine, brads, cheesecloth, pearls, pearl stick pins and clear drops.

For the inside of my card I cut a black mat and a piece of the floral dp.
 I then used my old word window punch to punch out 
white and black cardstock to make my piano. 

I hope my projects have inspired you .
