Leaf Stenciled Thanks...STAMPlorations CUTplorations October 2017 Challenge


I'm thrilled to bits and pieces to be joining these amazing designers as part of the STAMPlorations

CUTplorations Challenge Team
Challenge starts October 2
On the first Monday of each month,  the girls in the CUTplorations team will be sharing their projects inspired by a photo. On the third Monday of each month, they'll be back for more inspiration and to share yet another take on the inspiration photo. They'll be showcasing CUTplorations dies, our line of thin metal dies.



Incredible talent here and what an honour to be in the mix! Hopefully, I'm able to inspire you as wonderfully as they do!  Let's start, shall we....

Being that today is, indeed, October 2: a warm welcome to CUTplorations October 2017 Challenge, where Maria has selected this fabulous fall/home image as inspiraiton:

Fruits and veggies, letters, words, colours, the 'meaning' of home/ many entry points for this challenge.

If you've followed me for a while, you'll know that I love my STAMPlorations stencils!  To launch this challenge, I focused on the purple/blue colours on the bottom half of 'happy', with this as the result:

Thanks Word Die, 

The background is Wilted Violet (both regular and oxide) distress inks paired with Chipped Sapphire, sprinkled with a few droplets of water...a quick dusting of perfect pearls and ta dahhh...a shimmery, leafy thank you card that, I hope, makes you smile! 

Please head over to the main blog to see the incredible cards created by my wonderful team. You'll be dazzled and, I know, inspired to play along!  The guidelines are simple; the rewards for joining us, wonderful:
  • You can link up as many projects as you want (1 project per blog post)
  • Please be sure to use at least 1 STAMPlorations product (stamps, dies, stencils, free digis...)
  • Prizes: $10 GC for the winner; $5 GC each to the 2 top picks
  • If there are more than 25 entries: 1 player will be randomly drawn to win her choice of CUTplorations dies worth up to $15
Looking forward to seeing your CUTplorations creations in the gallery!
