We're back at STAMPlorations with some 'EXCITING NEWS'

Today is the DAY that I get to tell all my
Crafty Friends that I have been invited to join
all the Talented Designer at STAMPlorations.
You will remember I was a Guest for the CAS Challenges
way back earlier in the year and been Guesting
 on several occasions since.
See Here for the most recent.
You can imagine how Excited! I was
as this is my Favourite Stamp Company and to be part of
the Talented Team is like a dream come true.

# UPDATE! The secret is out -  Shery (Owner of STAMPlorations)
announced the Current Design Team a few days ago Here
So without further ado here is the CUTplorations Inspiration Photo
 for our First Challenge back.

What caught your eye?
I chose to hone in on the word
I thought a Christmas card would be a good idea
so I got out my STAMPlorations Supplies and
away I went.
My card base is a metallic paper.
The background sponged with
SU Rich Razzleberry and
Tim Holtz Stormy Sky.
The House is from STAMPlorations Houses - The Bee's Knees
heat embossed in white,
inked in SU Rich Razzleberry
and fussy cut - came out a little dark in the photo.
I cut another piece of card stock from the
CUTplorations Double Running Stitched Die
and the CUTplorations Nesting Dies
for my snowy background.
I know it doesn't snow here at Christmas time
but it does  'Somewhere' so I added white acrylic paint
splats to the background and the house which is popped.
Sentiment is STAMPlorations Merry
inked again with SU Rich Razzleberry.
Added some gems to finish.


Don't forget to pop over to Our Blog
to see what the Team have created.
Hope you can come join us this month.
We'd love to see you!

Thanks for dropping in
Till next time - Cherrio from
