{Special Post} STAMPlorations 5th Birthday Hop feat. STAMPgirl Shirley Bampton

Happy Friday, folks! Today the spotlight is on STAMPgirl Shirley and her super artsy cards. When it comes to Shirley's projects, you can expect two things: splatters/sploshes and Distress inks. She's a master at using Distress inks for watercoloring images and creating those luscious backgrounds. Just take a look:

And here are her new cards:



Houses, birds, dresses, cupcakes -- awesome elements for CASEd cards! If you do CASE any one of Shirley's cards, don't forget to link up your project to our Birthday Linky Party aka CASE the STAMPgirls Challenge. 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)

  11. Lovely cards, Shirley. I love the party dress cards ...
    so girly and pretty!

  12. I love how you made a little flower for those dress forms!

  13. From birds, to houses, to stylish party dresses, Shirley's cards are all eye-catching, inspiring works of art!

  14. These are such wonderful, colorful cards! My favorites are the oldies. The Houses image is one of my favorites, and it looks great here. Thank you for sharing these.

  15. Love the colors that Shirley used. I cased her card with the line drawing with a watercolor splattered background instead of coloring the image. I kind of got carried away with my splatters. I think I need some lessons from Shirley on getting the right amount.

  16. GORGEOUS, SPECTACULAR cards! I especially LOVE the dress form ones! Just so sweet! Just so much fun!

  17. Wonderful cards. That second one is eye-catching and looks so cool. x
