Guest Designer Special Request

I recently had a special request from a friend that was on my current design team to participate in their wonderful blog as a guest designer.

Karen Day from Inspired by All the Little Things asked me to post something that I was inspired by from the following photo:

For me a window box full of colourful flowers means that spring is here and that summer is almost here as well. Also spring signifies a new beginning as flowers and plants start to grow and then bloom for the rest of the summer.

The stamp is “Pansy Window Box Frame” which is from High Hopes Stamps, was coloured with Copic Sketch Markers. I trimmed the image down and used a 1/2′” corner rounder.  Rhinestones were added to the center of the flowers.  The paper is from Heartfelt Creations Butterfly Melody Collection.


Apple Blossom’s Skates

Hi All;

In keeping with this month’s birthday theme for One Crazy Stamper, I have used Apple Blossom’s Skates; one of the Cottage Cuties Collection which designed by Elisabeth Bell for Whimsy Stamps.  It is perfect for the December and January birthdays in my family.


Supplies used:

There is still a couple of weeks left for you to enter this month’s Birthday challenge and create a birthday project for a chance to win a prize and/or to be considered for a guest design spot. Also check out Lora’s store One Crazy Stamper for some amazing new products that are arriving daily.

See you next week and in the meantime stamp up a storm and make someone’s day with a handmade card or other project.
