So, there's no excuse for you not to join us, and in addition to being in with a chance of winning the usual monthly prize, you could be the lucky winner of a complete set of the new stamps!
I loved the new stamps so much...I made a card with each of them...so beware...this is a LONG post today! lol
Ok...first up we have 'Italian Girl':
Doesn't she make you fell summery? Even though it's blinkin' cold here in the UK today! lol
I coloured her with watercolour pencils to match the bright 'Ooh La La (for Her)' papers by My Mind's Eye. I distressed all of the edges, and added some faux stitching. The flowers are by Prima, the brads are Papermania, and the sentiment stamp is by Simon Says Stamp.
The next one is called 'Angel Boy':
When I first saw him, I thought of 'Cupid', so combined him with 'Adore' papers from My Mind's Eye. Again, I distressed the edges, and added some Prima flowers and card candy. I carefully cut around the bottom of his wings, and his hanging leg so that it would look like he was sitting on the bottom panel, then I coated the whole image with Crackle Accents. It was really difficult to photograph it, but I think you can just about see the crackled effect.
The third stamp is called 'Ice Skating Couple':
This image would be perfect for anniversary cards, winter birthdays or even Christmas cards. I watercoloured it to match the yummy 'Wild Asparagus' papers by My Mind's Eye. The flowers are a mixture of Prima and Poppicrafts.
The final image is the one I gave you a sneak peek of yesterday...and I think she's my favourite...she's called 'Bird Fairy':
Again, I coloured her with watercolour pencils, and used My Mind's Eye 'Wild Asparagus' papers, and Prima flowers. I kept it really simple, distressing the edges, and adding some faux stitching.
Well...I hope you're still with me! If you hop over to the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge, there are lots more fabulous samples made with these gorgeous new stamps from our DT, and a couple of special Guest Designers.
I'll be back later today to announce the winner of my blogoversary candy.
