If you've come here from STAMPlorations blog then you know what this post is about: STAMPlorations design team is celebrating the birthday of our wonderful leader Shery, the owner and designer of STAMPlorations. We've all made cards for her and are also sharing thoughts about our favorite STAMPlorations stamps + our favorite literature! Shery is not only a stamp designer but does writing too so we thought she might want to hear what we like to read. :)
I've created my card with stamps from two latest releases: Boxed Blooms and Bold Sentiments and VIGNETTE:It's Your Day. The size of the Boxed Blooms flowers is a perfect match with the VIGNETTE sentiment block! I colored the flowers in with Copics and for me this didn't need anything else. I hope you like your card, Shery!
So, what's my favorite STAMPlorations stamp?
My favorite set has for a long time been Chevron and Arrows: I love stamping backgrounds with it and it's great for masculine cards too. However, Boxed Blooms and Bold Sentiments is becoming a new favorite: I love coloring in the flowers of this set and the font of the sentiments is just so COOL!
How about my taste for literature... I must confess that lately I've been mainly reading Craft Stamper and (slightly boring...) books related to my profession but I love books by John Irving, Paul Auster, Siri Hustvedt and Donna Tart for example. I actually just found out they've translated Donna Tart's latest to Finnish -I must get that to my hands! :)
I'll end my post by telling Shery that she is an awesome, awesome girl! One of the greatest things that has happened to me in blogland has been to get to know her. I'm very proud to be in STAMPlorations design team and happy to be friends with this talented, creative, artistic girl. Happy Birthday Shery, I wish you a wonderful day!
