and here's my tag featuring CUTplorations Manila Tags and the Peace Love Joy Dies. 

I started with the largest Manila Tags die and then  added strips of American Crafts Glitter Tape horizontally across my tag. I then added a Spellbinders Large Snowflake die.

I then cut out the Sentiment using the Peace Love Joy Die 4 times. 3 times onto white cardstock and once onto Red Glitter Cardstock from Recollections. I glued all 4 together so that my sentiment would have some definition. A wood veneer snowflake from Michael's painted in Liquitex Gold Paint finished it off. 

I sure hope I've inspired you to get crafty today! Oh and don't forget if you use code "STAMPGIRLAMY" you can get 20% off your purchase! :o)

STAMPlorations~ Be the YOU you WANT to be

Yay! It's time for another STAMPlorations Mixed Media Monthly Challenge again! 
Just remember to use a stencil in your make (and it cannot be a card) to be eligible to win. 

So here's a tag  I made using Floral Flutes Stencil along with the largest Manila Tags die and Noteworthy 2 Stamp set.

I started by covering the largest Manila Tags die cut with old book paper. I then added Vintage Photo and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxides thru the Floral Flutes stencil. I then added some Floral Vine Die Cuts from Spellbinders and Cottage Cutz and splattered some Prima Gold Foil Color Bloom Spray

I then added a little Tim Holtz Paper Doll and stamped a sentiment from the  Noteworthy 2 Stamp set with Ganache StazOn Midi Ink onto a small tag from the Manila Tags die set. I finished with a metal embellie and button from my stash. 

I sure hope I've inspired you to get crafty today! Oh and don't forget if you use code "STAMPGIRLAMY" you can get 20% off your purchase! :o)

STAMPlorations~ Sanna's Stencil Release Hop!

Woohoo! STAMPlorations is having a Hop showcasing the lovely Sanna Lippert's Stencil Designs!

Be sure to  check out all her amazing me, you'll LOVE THEM!! 

I used Trees 1 and Flowers 2 and made an art journal page:

I used my Mini Art Journal ..which was a kiddies MDF book. I applied DecoArt NEON acrylic paints  with a brayer. Once dry, I applied a little white gesso with the brayer to soften the background. I then created a Circle mask from acetate and used the same bright acrylic paints thru the FLOWERS 2 stencil . This mask allowed for me to create the "flower bubbles" on my page. 

I then used black acrylic paint thru the TREES 1 Stencil as I felt my page needed some black. I then used my Jane Davenport pen around my "bubbles" and doodled to highlight them. 
I finished with my sentiment from Create Bold Sentiments set and the CUTplorations Uppercase Die set

I sure hope I've inspired you today and be sure to continue hoppin' as there are some AMAZING prizes up for grabs:  one winner of $20 gift certificate and two winners will win their choice of 3 Sanna Lippert Designs stencils! Winners will be randomly drawn from comments left on the STAMPlorations blog and participating designers blogs so be sure to leave comments along the way!
