Happy 4th Birthday STAMPlorations ........

Happy Friday folks .......

And a very Happy 4th Birthday to STAMPlorations.

Shery and the STAMPlorations girls have been celebrating all this week with a Birthday Blog Hop and Wish List Linky Party

There's also a brand new release of lots of new STAMPlorations goodies ..... visit the store to see the full range, and why not take advantage of the Birthday Sale.  It's on now and runs until July 7th.   There's 15% off all stamps, stencils and dies and a flat rate $3 worldwide shipping for orders over $49.  Go on ........ treat yourself!

It's the final day of the Blog Hop today and I'm joining in with the fun with a couple of easy to create designs using some of the brand new releases.

I've gone for a white on white look here with a splash of colour ......

Remember the fabulous CUTplorations Birthday word die, well now there's a matching stamp to go with it.  It comes in the new Happy Birthday set ..... a mix of happy birthday in some great fonts.
I've used both the stamp set and the die here ........

I cut the words from white cardstock and then arranged them onto a square piece of card, leaving enough space above one of them to fit in the happy part of my greeting

You can see that I've taken some of the words over the edge and trimmed them down to give a more random look.

I coloured one of the die cuts with a hot pink ink and then stamped the happy over the top to finish the greeting.

Of course you could always stamp the Birthday in a coloured ink and then die cut it ..... the die matches the stamp perfectly.

For my second card I used the cute little CUTplorations Cupcake Builder #1  This is just adorable and so useful ..... who doesn't love cupcakes!

I simply die cut the cupcake from white cardstock and then used my ZIG markers to add colour to the individual layers

I used foam pads to add a touch of dimension when building the cupcake, and added some glitter onto the frosting on the top.

I found these cute little cherry brads in my stash and I couldn't resist adding one to the top.

The words are from the STAMPlorations Kathryn's Big Wishes.  I love how you can bend and shape clear stamps to fit perfectly where you want them

I finished off by adding another die cut .... this time the word celebrate .....

Die cut from white card then added a touch of sparkle with some fine crystal glitter

Couldn't be simpler.  What are you waiting for ....... happy hopping!

Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy the rest of your day and have a great weekend.
We're hoping for some nice weather then we can try out the new BBQ ..... that's if we ever get in in unpacked and in place.
It's a little on the large side, and heavy too.   Hubby's a little nervous about trying to get it down the steps (I did point this out when he was buying it by the way!!)

Anyhow ......we're currently waiting to hear from a man with a crane to see if we can get it lifted down there.  Fingers crossed!

Cheerio until next time .....
