STAMPlorations inspiration #157

Welcome to a new year of STAMPlorations inspiration posts, friends! Hope your holidays were joyful and your 2018 is off to a fabulous start!

It's time for a Tuesday inspiration from the STAMPlorations inspiration team where the team members feature stamps from one of our talented stamp designers.

Today we're using Shirley's The Bees Knees stamps. Shirley's stamps are 15% off this week (with an extra 20% off when you use my discount code STAMPGIRLMARIA).

Each year at this time I like to take a look at what they're predicting for trends for the coming year. In my surfing I discovered "Urban Tribe" - geometric but cool colors. So this month I'm creating my inspiration post projects using this image from my Pinterest inspiration board. See that image top and center? She inspired today's card.

Pulled out Faerie Door and dressed up the neighborhood with some circles punched from PP in a nod to the somewhat circular shapes of the patterns on my inspiration image. Added a masked sun, some dress coloring with Prismacolor pencils (got them for free with a Blitsy order recently!) and a little B/W doodling on the house. The photo doesn't pick it up, but three of the circles have gold foil patterns which really add to the fun!

If you're looking for more inspiration ... I had more fun with this set in this post ...
