Hello friends! Today at the STAMPlorations blog, we have got more inspiration for you. You can check out the Inspiration Posts HERE and we invite you to CASE one of our cards and link it up to the Inspiration CASE Playground. You are not required to use STAMPlorations stamps to play along, You can use any stamps from any company as long as you are making the card for fun.

At the end of the Inspiration Post on the STAMPlorations blog you will find InLinkz which will be open until the October 5th and wait we also have prizes. One winner will be randomly drawn from all entries to win a $15 gift certificate towards your purchase at STAMPlorations (or your choice of any 2 ARTplorations stencils). We will also be highlighting the best CASEs.. Sounds like fun !!

So let me show my third inspiration card for the month of September...
Here is a closeup showing the bird with some yummy wink of stella :) I have fallen in love with this product, adds such fun shimmer to you design...

To make this card,  I watercolored the BG in grey creating a gradient and then did some bokeh stamping in white pigment ink using some dot stamps (STAMPlorations Vignette: Retro Mod Shapes). Then I stamped, water colored and fuzzy cut the bird (using STAMPlorations The birds and the Blooms set) Then I stamped the pine needles from my latest set (Dee's Artsy Impressions - Chritmas Bell Medley) on the panel and adhered the bird with some foam dots. To finish the card I stamped the sentiment from the same set.

Here's another closeup into the card...

Head over to our STAMPlorations blog to get more inspiration. I am sharing this at Merry Monday #172 - Water coloring, Fab 'n' Funky challenge #274 - Cute critters and/ or Christmas and Paper take weekly - It will soon be here
