February Inspiration Project + March Stamps Sneak Peek

Our February inspiration project is courtesy of Shirley. Her card is tropical-inspired, as shown by the colors she used to stamp the stitches, banner, sentiment, flowers, and leaves -- stamps from the VIGNETTE: Eclectic Florals and PATCHWORK FRENZY: Graphic Pentagons sets. (If you ask me, this instantly made me think of -- and crave for -- mangoes!) When you have a moment, please stop by Shirley's blog and leave her some comment love!

Inspired? Add your project to the challenge linky below! Our theme this month is STAMPS & STITCHESYou can use stamps by other companies to create projects that you enter to our challenges, although if you have our stamps in your stash, we'd be tickled if you use them!

We're also excited about the new clear stamp sets we're releasing next month. They're the first sets in the new STAMPlorations line, SUBWAY ART BUILDERS! Here's a sneak peek of the 4 sets:

Can you guess what you can create using these stamps? Leave a comment between now and March 2. On March 3, I'll pick 2 lucky commenters who'll each receive 1 random set (from the new sets).

Have a great weekend!


  1. Pretty card Shirley, and thanks for the sneak peek. I would guess a Mother's Day card....

  3. Hi Shirley, I love this combination on your card!
    The stamps are for Mother's Day cards ;))) Elisabeth

  4. An awesome Mothers Day Card or for someone very special in your life.

  5. I'm sure there will be many card occasions for which these stamps could be used....... would love to win and test that theory!

  6. A perfect Mother's Day set for sure but could also be used for someone who has been supportive of you, like a mother. You could also just ink partial sections of this for some lovely sentiments!

  7. Oooh, these looks gorgeous, as is your beautiful card! I think it's safe to say that this is a Mother's Day set...although Mothers deserve to know they're loved all year round :) I'm sure this set could be used to make a card for all loved ones - I love versatile sentiments :)

  8. I'm loving the subway art idea! It'd be great for Mother's day or just appreciating your mother cards :D

  9. Lovely card! The subway tile stamp set looks great! Particularity good for a chalkboard technique Mother's Day card. :-)

  10. Shirley's card is lovely. Nice colors and use of the striped bkgrd and floral panel. Thanks for the chance to win. :)

  11. Mothers Day cards, Mothers birthday cards or just plain old "You're the best Mom" cards!

    Less is so often (always) more! - love the card too


  12. Perfect for Mother's Day cards, but also for encouragement and appreciation cards. Beautiful fonts and sentiments!

  13. Ohhh - that's gotta be a Mother's Day set. But I can see it being used for a sister or friend or daughter too. It's really nice!

  14. Very cool - looking forward to seeing the rest of the March releases!!
