Your Next Stamp 1st Design Team Call

I am excited to find a great new stamp line at Your Next Stamp. They have some cute, cute, cute images and I would love an opportunity to be on their Design Team! There's a call open for DT members until August 28th and this is my application. Wish me luck!

I am sharing two cards tonight that exemplify my "style" and creativity. These are a couple of my very favorites and I'll explain why below each photo:


I love this adorable fairy from The Greeting Farm. Not only is it a great image to color but it's also a wonderful image to cut out and layer onto a project! This card incorporates so many fun elements that I love - ribbon, which is one of my favorite embellishments, rhinestones (second only to ribbon!), die cuts, staples and of course, incredible papers!

I adore gorgeous papers and love finding just the right patterns and colors for the image and design that I want to create. Most often, the papers are the first source of inspiration for the piece I will work on.


Don your shades - those are some shiny wings! This card features some more of my favorites: buttons, matting cut with nestabilities, and elements popped up with foam tape - it's all about dimension! Of course, the Ketto image from Stamping Bella is the center of attention on this card! And those wings are sparkled with Stickles. Maybe I'm feeling a fairy vibe here, what do you think?

And just to show that I do stamp things other than fairies, here's a third offering just for fun:


This card is all about the image (although the DP is pretty darn cool!) Granny is all about summer and I can just picture her heading to an umbrella covered beach chair to relax and read a book. I love the embossed border on this card that creates a grounding line for the image and the brads that are incorporated into the paper, adding some dimension without being over-done.

So that's a quick look at a few of my favorites! Thanks for visiting and please leave me a comment and let me know which one you like best.

Have a creative weekend!
