{Spotlight Project} Shirley's Playing Cards With a Friend


Hello Peeps! Today I'm playing cards with a friend. I'm sure many of you know Michele Ferguson of I Card Everyone. Some time ago she turned my Layered Poinsettias set into spring flowers using the split four technique here, and I loved the result so much that I CASEd her here and again here.

Well, I thought the technique would work with other stamps so I invited her to a playdate. We chose my set Carved Flowers, and to change things up a bit, instead of the split four technique, we would split the panel vertically to make slimline cards. So here's what I made:

{Spotlight Project} Exploring A Stencil With Deepti


Hello friends! Deepti here and today I am exploring a stencil. I mean I am not using it the way I usually use... set it up on card stock and ink it up. But today I decided it to use just a part of the stencil for my card. Art Flowers 2 stencil is great not only for some gorgeous background but also you can use the flowers individually to make your spring field :) Let me show you...

{Special Event} Spring Fling Blog Hop and Linky Party with the STAMPlorations Girls + Free Digital Stamp

 

Hello, STAMPlorations friends! Are you ready for another fun event, STAMPlorations style? Just like in last year's spring fling event, the STAMPgirls have some beautiful spring-filled projects to inspire you and get you in the mood for some crafting. In addition to the hop, we've got a linky party that we hope you'll join! You'll be able to download a digital stamp to use in your projects (although this is not required in order to participate); there is a coupon code you can use to get it for free.

There are 2 parts to this fun event:
  1. a blog hop with 12 stops (including this blog) where you can leave comments; and
  2. linky party for linking up your spring-themed projects -- you're free to use non-STAMPlorations products but if you do use our products (stamps, stencils, dies, clear stickers, ephemera, coloring pages, card fronts) and you're randomly picked as a winner, you get a bonus prize + we've got a digital stamp you can download and use. 
As for the prizes...we've got plenty in the form of products and prize  codes.


Spring Fling Hop prizes:
  • THREE (3) winners of a $7 prize code - randomly drawn from all comments left on the STAMPlorations blog and participating designers' blogs.

Spring Fling Spread the Word prizes:

Spring Fling Linky Party prizes:
  • TWO (2) winners of a $12 prize code - randomly drawn from qualifying entries*
  • ONE (1) winner of a $25 prize code - randomly drawn from qualifying entries*

*If a participant who used STAMPlorations products in her project is picked as winner, she will receive a bonus prize - a pack of the Abstract Blooms ATC ($7 value)

There's likely going to be surprise/extra prizes as well :o)

The hop and linky are open until the June 7 so you can take your time hopping and linking up :o) We'll announce the winners on June 10 in the May's winners post. Follow our blog so you don't miss any of our posts.

Let's get on with the spring fling hop, shall we? For this round, the STAMPgirls are putting the spotlight on two of our spring-themed A2 card fronts: Spring Florals and Artsy Florals

(If a participating designer's spring fling hop post appears to be missing, it may be that she has not posted hers yet. Please check back on her post later.)

  • Create any type of project (card, tag, ATC, layout, art journal page, etc.) with a SPRING theme -- anything with flowers, birds, butterflies, and anything associated with spring.
