Creations By Our Design Team!

Hello bloggers! Today I want to share with you some photos of what our design team has been up to lately. Take a look at this cute card that Heidi made! Isn't it just adorable? Heidi used copic markers to color him, along with using tuxedo black and lady bug Memento ink.
She used MS snowflake punches- Icelandic, Artic, Alpine and the small one is from a MS snowflake corner punch. The lg one in the right corner is a die by Spellbinders using the Snowflake Wonder die set. The sentiment is by Stampin Up Teeny Tiny Wishes along with using the SU modern label and word window punches. She also used white satin ribbon and clear adhesive rhinestones. The paper is Stampin Up real red and white. White and red glitter CS and the DP is by Colorbok. She also used Diamond and yellow stickles on here too.
I just love the way it turned out! Heidi he's adorable!

Here's two more creations, these were made by Carol Salisbury. The red suited Santa was colored with Spectrum Noir markers and the Burgandy one was colored with Tim Holtz distress markers.

Too cute gals! Great job! I love what your making with our stamps!
I'll have another creation very soon! I hope you all are loving this fall weather were having. I love watching all the leaves turn colors. It's one of my favorite seasons. I'm working on creating more stamps, so I'll have a new one soon! Thank you for following along with us!
Take care,

Our First Design Team Creation

This adorable Christmas card was made by one of our design team members Shawn Johnson from Poetry In A Pot Of Tea.
Shawn used the following products to make her card.
Santa, Wreath & Candle Lamp Stamp #187-S (Terrye French)
Paper= DCWV Haberdash Stack brown plaid, Recollections Naughty Or Nice, My Minds Eye Sunshine.
Martha Stewart edge punch
Platinum Liquid Pearls on the lantern
Stickles on the pine greens
Inkssentials Black Enamel
Flocking powder on his cuffs, hat and beard
Distress Clear Rock Candy Crackle paint
Distress Ink to color image
grungeboard which I inked, punched and studded with brads
Zig H2O water pen to color image
Marvy corner punch
I had fun using my Distress Inks and Zig H2O pen together, and like the resulting watercolor look I got using them. Wonder what Santa would look like in a dark green coat? Burgundy? Royal blue? You know I am going to have to make a few more cards with this festive fellow!
