{Special Post} Thank You For Celebrating With Us! + A Few More Cards for the Road

Hi, guys! It's the last day of our birthday celebration -- the month sure whizzed by fast! I'm so thankful to have you all celebrate our 5th birthday. Our gallery is brimming with fantastic CASEs and I love how you have been inspired by the STAMPgirls.

A huge thank you goes to my amazing design team, the super-talented ladies who helped me make this month-long inspiration possible. (We've not had a daily post for 30 days straight until now!). I'm so grateful to them and I certainly feel very blessed to have them devote their talents to helping spread the word about our little company.

If you have just stumbled across our blog and think you're too late for the party -- you're not! You've got until July 3 to comment on the posts, link up your wishlist, and even CASE the STAMPgirls!

And here's a quick link to ALL of this month's posts:

And I've got one last batch of past favorites (my Top 3 Color Explosion One Layer Cards) and a new card to share and close the month.

And here's my new card:


I CASEd all three cards -- I went with the layout of the first, the butterfly element of the second, and the stencil technique of the third -- to come up with this almost-CAS artsy grungy one layer card. Rather like how the card turned out :o)

Want to CASE one of my cards? If you've been at all inspired by my cards, do link up your creations to our Birthday Linky Party aka CASE the STAMPgirls Challenge by July 3. The linky is found at the end of the post HERE. Five lucky players will win a $50 gift certificate to the store -- one of them could be you! :o)

For a chance to win a $25 gift certificate, leave a comment on this post.
For a chance to win up to $25 worth of STAMPlorations products, create and link up your wishlist here.

Again, thank you so much for celebrating our 5th year with us! See you again next year, okay?

PS: Check back on July 10 to see if you're one of the winners!


  1. Superb collection of cards new and old, Shery! The Create without fear card calls me to CASE it...
    What a month, so much inspiration and so much creativity, a lovely celebration for Stamplorations 5th Birthday!

  2. So many cool cards. Hoped to get a couple more joined up but the time just slipped away. Thanks for a mind blowing month. Bet you all need to relax now LOL. Hugz

  3. Your cards are gorgeous, Shery! I am not one to make one-layer cards but yours are so impressive and they do not look like one-layer cards, so fabulous! The new card is the one I love the most!

    1. Actually I'm not finished! I just wanted to add a huge THANK YOU to you and your amazing team for all the inspiration this month! There are more cards that I want to CASE but there aren't enough hours in the day! Hoping to get a couple more made before your linky closes! It was a very fun party and I really enjoyed playing with my STAMPlorations stamps and dies!

  4. Love your use of color on these cards.

  5. I think you are the Queen of gorgeous one-layer
    cards, Shery! Wow, these are all so beautiful!
    I especially love the 'butterfly/create without
    fear' card. It's something I need to remember when
    creating. We all should. Just make what makes YOU
    happy and forget what others may think. We don't
    all create the same or at the same level. And there
    is nothing wrong with that. We just need to enjoy
    without fear. :-)

  6. Love the inky style of these super cool cards! xxx

  7. More fabulous work by Shery! Yeah - loving all this stamping - TFS and for the June Challenge in Celebration of 5 years! Blessings

  8. You sure are the master of the one layer technique. Always so inspirational, so artsy and such fabulous cards x

  9. These are gorgeous, Shery - I especially like the first 2 cards, and how you made a "frame" of sorts with the newsprint stamp on the second one! I want to say thanks for the "party" this month - I have had a blast making and linking cards, and I have never used my Stamplorations stamps this often, so I am thrilled about that. And congrats to you on your accomplishment - wishing you much success!!

  10. What a wonderful finale Shery - a really eye catching card. I have enjoyed following all your posts, and have been inspired to get my limited supply of your stamps out again to play with. Congratulations on your 5th birthday

  11. Thanks for a great month of celebration.... and inspiration! Awesome cards!

  12. Wonderful cards! Love how you incorporated all three of the first cards into the last! What a great lineup of inspiring projects this month!

  13. Thanks Shery for this fabulous month!!! Amazing creations!!!

  14. Great to see so many inspiration and beautiful stamps, stencils and dies from STAMPlorations!
    And super how 3 cards bring you to a totally different card; they all look great! Hugs, Gerrina

  15. Happy Birthday! Although I haven’t been able to make very many projects to link up, I’ve enjoyed all of yours and the STAMPgirls’ projects.
    What a fun month of celebration!

  16. Wow! These cards are fantastic! Thanks for this wonderful month of great creations and inspirations.

  18. I just love your style and design, they are fantastic!

  19. It was such a super FUN event. I hope you're all around for many more years to come. The best part was getting more familiar with ALL STAMPlorations has to offer!
