Stamping Sensations

Morning everyone and it's an exciting one for me as I was invited to be Guest designer this month on the Stamping Sensations challenge blog as part of the prize that I won back in October!

The challenge this month is to incorporate dies and or punches in your work. This should be very popular as we all seem to use dies to embellish our cards.

Come and see what I came up with:


I used a Tonic verso die with a matching topper called Pansy. The stamp is part of my prize from Imagination crafts and it's a decoupage one called Waterlily which I coloured with PM's and stamped again to create the decoupage. The topper then gets tucked in to the centre of the large diecut and I put blue card behind to enhance the design. I added a few tiny dots of cosmic shimmer glue to the lily and the dragonflies. The sentiment is a very old SeeDee one.

I do hope you'll pop over to Stamping Sensations to check out the fabulous inspiration from the design team and to join in the challenge this month.
I am also entering my card into the January challenge over at Imagination - Crafts  as their theme is Anything Goes and I have used their fabulous stamp!

Valerie - just saw your GD card over at Stamping Sensations and popped over for a closer look (and became your newest follower as well). This is one stunning die and love the waterlily decoupaged flower. It's a very dramatic & gorgeous card and a wonderful card for your GD assignment. So glad I happened to spot it over at S.Sensations. TFS & Hugs. Hope you'll find time to visit me sometime.
