{Mixed Media Tutorial} Playing With Stencils, Distress Inks and Micro Glaze by Lynne


Hello everyone!  Today I am here with my last tutorial post for the STAMPlorations mixed media design team this year. Before I get started I just want to say that it has been a wonderful two years working with these products and being supported by my warm and caring and very talented teammates. And, although I am leaving the design team to spend more time on my art career, I will continue to use my STAMPlorations products in new and creative ways which of course I will continue to share with all of you on my own blog.


So for this final tutorial post I am sharing how you can create fantastic backgrounds using ARTplorations Stencils, Ranger Distress Inks and Micro Glaze... three products that go together like peanut butter, honey and bananas.  And as usual for me, this is going to be a very photo-heavy post, so get nice and comfy so you can enjoy the scroll through all my process photos... Smile.

Hey, STAMPlorations friends! We have a special post today -- courtesy of STAMPgirl Jessica, who created TEN different floral/spring-themed projects. Plus we've got a sale on select flower products until May 31 and a giveaway found at the end of this post.

{Spotlight Project} Monica and For The Birds #2

[Note: This month, we have several STAMPlorations girls guest designing and joining the regular Spotlight Project girls and sharing more awesome step-by-step projects that feature our 5x7 stamp club sets. We hope you get even more inspired!]




Hi everyone! I am back this month to share with you another project I created using the stamp set For the Birds. My design for this card came to me after reading the Faith sentiment from this stamp set. Within the sentiment it says "the bird that feels the light" and I knew exactly what I wanted to do.

{Spotlight Project} Maria Makes an Easy Shaker


Hi STAMPlorations peeps! Maybe you saw the fun shaker card I created recently? Thought I'd share how I made it. I think the design is just plain fun, and with these stamps you could even use this design for an out-of-the-ordinary graduation card. And the bonus... you use up one of those backgrounds you made for fun but then don't know what to do with it ;)

{Mixed Media Tutorial} Blue-Toned Butterfly Art Journal Page by Sanna



Hello lovelies, it's Sanna here again with another mixed media tutorial. This time I created an art journal page using various STAMPlorations stencils with acrylic paints.

Here is the finished piece:





CUTplorations May Reminder

Where has May gone?!? Have you joined us in this month's CUTplorations challenge yet? Remember, this month, all our challenges have one theme: Things with Wings.


So for the CUTplorations challenge, it's easy peasy. Show us your winged-themed projects using at least one die cut! Create any type of project (cards, ATCs, layouts, or whatever you want) as long as it's got at least one die cut and something with wings on it!

The DT has used STAMPlorations products today, but players (you!) don't have to. Use whatever you have in your stash...although we are always tickled pink when we see our products in projects entered in our challenges!
