You guuuuuuuyyyyyysssss! It's time for a celebration!!!
My favorite stamp company turned 7 years old in July and we're having a very belated birthday celebration. We put things a little bit on hold due to the old corona impacting literally everything - including ship times.
There are literally $160 worth of prizes available during the celebration so you're going to want to play along. Check out the three fun ways you can party along.
ALSO!!! If you want to buy something in the STAMPstore during the celebration, not only can you cash in on some pretty sweet sales, but you can also get an additional 20% off using STAMPGIRLBECCA.
And now, for the first of five cards I made to celebrate!
When I was thinking about the type of image I wanted to use for my celebration card, I thought right away of a butterfly. I remember the first blog post I ever made and... boy oh boy... have things erupted from an ugly ol' cocoon. My photography skills, my cardmaking techniques, my crafty friendships... I'm so thankful for this online world.
STAMPlorations has been a big part of my blogging journey. I fell in love with Shery Russ's designs right away. And then I fell in love with her as a generous, lovely human being. Little did I know that I'd wind up making cards featuring her products and eventually wind up designing a whole line of stamps for the company.
I embossed the butterfly from the Blossom Like a Buttefly set in gold and watercolored it using my grandma's vintage watercolor paints. I bet these are probably 20 years old, but I sure love the way they shimmer.
Oh my, your butterfly is so gorgeous. And it looks amazing on the intricate die cut--what a great pattern on it, too. I am loving this...ReplyDelete
Beautiful card, and I am loving that texture plateReplyDelete

What a fabulous card Becca - love those paints, and you are right to treasure them! I have enjoyed following you on your journey, and was thrilled when you joined STAMPlorations team. You are a real asset to them.ReplyDelete
No I don't hoard... just keep things 'in case', but that being said, I have purged big time of late... and re-organized, and now it takes me twice as long to find things!
Wow!! You're card is so gorgeous!! I love all the layers and that beautiful butterfly!ReplyDelete
Love this gorgeous gold embossed butterfly, the background texture is pretty.ReplyDelete
so very beautiful card.ReplyDelete
Love that pretty butterfly!ReplyDelete
Pretty and very effective. I have those paints similar, if not exactly, like those and some of the other dies. Guess I need to get my hands on the stitched plate so I can make something similar. Wonderful card.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous! Love all the amazing detail and organic elements!ReplyDelete
Gold embossing can never go wrong!! Love this cardReplyDelete
What a fabulous card, Becca! Love how you've kept your background toned down, so as to make your shimmery butterfly take central stage. I'm wondering if your grandma was a hoarder? Those paints are looking pretty new to me, and they are right on trend lol.ReplyDelete
I also adore the new grid texture plate. I may have to go shopping soon ...
This is gorgeous!! I love the muted colors and that fabulous die cut background!! Awesome layout as well!!ReplyDelete
