Guest Designer....

I am so excited and daunted ...in equal measures...to be a Guest Designer 
at STAMPlorations ......
for their Sketch and Theme Challenge this month.
The Design Team is fabulous and always come up with the 
most original, creative and stunning inspiration. 
STAMPlorations have a very active Blog, if you've time pop across and take a look....
They also have great challenges, incorporating lots of different crafting styles.

Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to Guest with you this month.
Use The Sketch and....or The Theme
I have used The Theme of Stamps and Splatters to make my card ....
using STAMPlorations products.
The white background card has been sprayed and splattered with Green paints.
I have used the stamps from the mixed media elements stamp set 
and black archival ink for some of the ink spots and splats.
The flutters & splatters stencil has been used with black embossing paste 
for the butterfly and a few splats.
For the gold splats I have again used the same stencil but with gold glitter embossing gel.
The stencil, paste and gel has given some dimension and lovely texture to the card.
The large Hello sentiment has been stamped 
and heat embossed in gold glitter onto black card and attached using foam.
The white card has gold embossing powder around the edges.

I had fun making the card and I thank you once again for the opportunity.

Challenges I would like to enter my card into......
CAS Mix Up Challange - Stamping/Stencilling and my choice is splats and heat embossing
Addicted to Stamps + More - Make your Mark - Sprays, embossing paste and heat embossing

  1. Many congratulations Mac on being a Guest Designer. I fully understand your excitement as I felt just the same when I was asked to be a Guest Designer for Stamping Sensations last June, and then again when I was asked to join the Design Team at Fashionable Stamping Challenges in December. However, there is absolutely no need whatsoever for you to be daunted in any way as you always make the most amazing cards and this card is no exception. I love the stamps and splatters that you've used and your colour palette is just perfect. Enjoy your success:) Wishing you a lovey weekend xx
