Hey everyone!  It's the last day to celebrate with STAMPlorations!  This past week we've been celebrating with a new stamp set and the launch of our new line of thin metal dies.  The last two days we showed you the nesting tags and the nest rectangles with the crazy stitching. Weren't the projects the DT made amazing?  Today we are sharing projects using the fabulous word dies. We each got a couple of words to play with.  Mine were, Celebrate and Amazing.


The word dies are just awesome!  Great fonts and the sizes are perfect. Check out my cards....


My first card is fairly simple in design but took me a bit of time to accomplish. First, I took some gloss paper and added some alcohol ink in a variety of colours adding blender ink as well.  I used the Spectrum Noir ink refills I have.  I used a piece of scrap and pressed it down on my wet ink and it smooshed all the colours quite nicely.  I stamped my balloon (Kathryn's Big Wishes set) using black StazOn ink and fussy cut it out.  I took a white card base and splattered black ink on it and stamped the balloon string (Kathryn's Big Wishes set) without the bow.  I attached my balloon with some foam dots.  I die cut my celebrate and sponged on some silver Delicata ink.  You could just die cut from silver paper but I didn't gave any so thins worked in a pinch.  I then attached it to my card.  I really love how the balloon turned out.


My second card is a super easy one to make but I just love the effect.  I took my stencil (Flourishes) and sponged on silver Delicata ink fading it out as I went up.  I due cut the word amazing and sponged on the ombre inks from Hero Arts Pool to Navy Ombre ink pad. I then attached it to my card.  Lastly, I stamped the rest of the sentiment (Sentiment Buliders: Happy set) in black.

So, don't forget to come by the STAMPlorations blog and hop with us!  Leave some comments along the way for a chance to win some great prizes.  Plus, you can make your own fun card using the graphic below for inspiration and link up for more chances to win!  Hope to see you there!
