Prizes: 

  • ONE (1) winner of a $15 gift certificate and 
  • ONE (1) winner of her choice of either Lacy Edges or the Winter & Spring Stitched Landscape dies

Winners will be randomly drawn from comments left on the STAMPlorations blog and designers' blogs. We'll announce the winners in the February Challenges and Blog Hops winners post on March 10. So stay tuned :)

Now let me show you what I created with each of these :)
Here I diecut the landscape die multiple times and layered it within a rectangular window. I inked these in different shades of green.
For this card I decided to make a Shaker card, I did some inking using distress inks to make my winter sky. Kept the landscape diecut white and created a shaker. For the above two cards...  besides New dies I have used Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting dies and Friends and Flowers set.
With the scalloped edge I had to create a wedding card, something just told me that hahaha. Anyways, I used a patterned paper and cut the different colors of scalloped edges. I also cut a kraft edge and stamped it with Damask Background stamp in white ink. I stamped and water colored the couple and stamped the sentiment to finish my card. I have also used Newly Weds, The Birds and The Blooms. The coloring was done with Gansai Tambi Water Colors.
My Final Card also used the edge dies. This time I layered the die cut panel over another patterned paper background. Since the patterned paper already has the sentiment, I decided to just add the word die over the flower. The flower was embossed and water colored. I have used Blooms Sketches and You and Me Phrase die

I had so much fun making these. There are more to come :) Don't forget to leave me a comment here and on the STAMP Blog for your chance to with these awesome dies :)
