Hello crafty friends! I've been holding onto this news for a while and I'm sooooo happy to announce that I've been picked as a Guest Designer for the STAMPlorations Theme & Sketch challenge!
The GDT call went out in August, using that months theme & sketch prompts:
Here is the card I submitted, using both the theme and sketch:
I started by cutting the main panel from the CUTplorations Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting dies and sponging a few Distress Inks over it using the ARTplorations Retro Circles stencil. I stamped and die cut one of the birds from the STAMPlorations Birds of Paradise stamp and die set, colored it and added Stickles. After stamping the sentiment, I die cut another bird from black card stock and glued it to the back of the colored one, offsetting it. After adhering the panel to my card base, I added the bird using foam squares. I just love these sketchy birds!
I also want to say congratulations to my Just Us Girls teammate, Ina, who was chosen to be
a Guest Designer for the CAS Card Challenge!
I am beyond excited to be crafting for the next three months alongside the amazing designers
