April STAMPlorations Challenge - Focus On The Sentiments

This month the STAMPlorations challenge is all about sentiments. Big and bold, die cut or stamped or made any other way you choose but we want to see the focus on your sentiment. You can create anything you want using any products you want. So off you go to your craft rooms and we are excited to see how you are inspired!

I was inspired to use the CUTplorations Fabulous word die and Bold Sentiments: Fabulous stamps. I started by inking a rainbow of Distress Oxides onto light grey card. Then I die cut a rectangle of white lightly textured card using the Crazy Double Running Stitched Nesting Dies, die cutting the Fabulous word die from the middle of the panel and making sure to save all the small die cut pieces from the 'f', 'b','l','o' and 's' so I could attach them later. I then stamped the first part of the sentiment using Bold Sentiments: Fabulous and added a few grunge arrows to the bottom using Mixed Media Grunge stamps. Then all I needed to do was attach the white panel, showing the rainbow through the die cut sentiment and attaching the small pieces to some of the letters where required. This is a super quick and fun card, perfect for that fierce, foxy and fabulous person in your life.
