Hello, friends! Deepti here and welcome to another spotlight feature. Today I am back with a card where I have used one stamp to create yet another background, sort of faux weaved background. Let me show you the card first :)

{Spotlight Project} Shirley's On The Tiles


I've had this idea in my head for the cup image in Brew-Tiful Day ever since I designed it. I wanted to make travertine tile coasters with it, with each cup having a different coloured highlight. I got there, but not without a few issues.

{Spotlight Project} Becca Creates a Scene



I was thinking about some of the images in the 5x7 stamp club sets and have always wondered what I should do with the outhouse in the Country Rustic set. Clearly it was made for humor (ok, ok, I think practically everything was meant to be turned into something funny.) Well, I was sitting at my craft table staring at a blank sheet of paper and BLAM my brain cleared itself of its constipation.


I'm not even sorry for that crappy joke.

{Inspiration Project Post #124}

Hello STAMPlorations Friends! It's Tuesday again, and this week we are showcasing stamps designed by our very own Deepti under her label Dee's Artsy Impressions.

The Inspiration Girls have been busy creating projects using Deepti's sets. What can I say? There is a distinct feeling of Spring in the air.

All of Deepti's stamp sets will be on sale for the week - no coupon needed; the discount is automatically applied. And if you happen to have a coupon code, such as a personal discount code for being a stamp club subscriber, you can use the code to get an even better deal.

All of Deepti's stamp sets will be reduced by 10% except for the Power Of Words set of sentiments with coordinating doodles which will be 20% off until March 27.

We'll still randomly draw a winner from all the comments left on our Inspiration Posts, so have a look and leave a comment for your entry to win a $10 gift certificate to the store.

{Mixed Media Tutorial} Monika Makes a Sunflower Canvas


Hello Crafty Friends! I am back today with another canvas to share. It is a little more complex than last month's, and I can assure you, it doesn't look anything like what I had in mind.
That's the beauty and challenge of Mixed Media, trusting the process when projects take on a life of their own.

March Challenge Mid-Month Reminder - More Inspiration

Hey, everyone! Here's your mid-month reminder to play in the current Theme & Sketch Challenge. Our theme is STAMPS & SPRING. Think flowers, butterflies, pastel colors, growth, Easter, bunnies...If you end up with a spring-inspired card that's also clean and simple, make sure to link it up to the March CAS Card Challenge.

March CAS Card Challenge Reminder

Hey, STAMPlorations friends! Here's to remind you that this month's CAS Card Challenge is in full swing. It's anything CAS goes with sky blue as the optional color twist. And if you were inspired by our sketch and/or theme this month, make sure you link up your creation to to our March Monthly Theme and/or Sketch Challenge as well. If your card has diecuts, has a STAMPlorations product, and was inspired by the photo here, link it up in the March CUTplorations Challenge gallery. And lastly, if your card has STAMPlorations products (stamps, stencils, and/or dies) as the main attraction, link it up to our Never-Ending Anything Goes Challenge. Yep, more chances for prizes we have up for grabs :o)



The STAMPlorations girls are back with cards to inspire you. Check them out and we hope you'll come play!

{Spotlight Project} Monika Goes Masculine With Masking And Inlaid Die-Cutting


Hello Crafty Friends! You know how I like making monochromatic cards. Today I'm combining this passion with masking and inlaid die-cutting for a masculine birthday card using two recent stamp club sets, the current Hello You and December's Scribbly Splattery Grunge.


March CUTplorations - Reminder

Hello Crafty Friends!

We're half way through March, and Spring is starting to gain a foothold in most of the northern hemisphere. Thinking about warm sunny days and garden parties ahead, we're just having a fitting Inspiration Photo for this month's CUTplorations Challenge.

Have you joined us, yet? If not, here is a quick reminder of our photo:

image source: Stylecaster

We also have a little more inspiration for you. Shirley created a fresh and feminine birthday card. and I made two cards, one of which uses the new floral themed CUTplorations Dies. Shery only just added them to the shop. I am sure, you'll love them and their intricate designs.




Check out the March challenge post here for more die-cutting inspiration and, of course, to link up your die-cutting makes. I'm looking forward to seeing your creations!

Have a lovely day!
hugs
Monika xxx
