This is Week 3 of the Stampotique Designers' Challenge hosted by our Design Team Coordinator Kim Howard. Although the challenge is the same, each week is a new chance for you to enter and win a $30 gift certificate from Stampotique Originals for the yummy stamps you see here.
One of the new stamps I received as a 2014 Stampotique Design Team member is Spiral Velvet Chair by stamp designer Amy Crowe, along with the text stamp Chair Up! I couldn't wait to use them, so created a card for you today.
The creative details: I used a card blank and adhered a piece of vertically striped patterned paper (inked around the edges with a blending tool) as wallpaper in the mini scene I am creating. Next, using the George and Basic Shapes cartridge on my Cricut Expression, I cut an oval shape ("Buckskin Brown" from The Paper Company) to serve as the rug beneath the chair. I then stamped the chair image on polka dot paper, cut it out and adhered it atop my rug. Smile (colored with Ranger Distress Markers and crayons) was added next, one of Daniel Torrente's character stamps. To keep him company, I added another of Daniel's stamps, Kitty! Lastly, the sentiment was stamped on white cardstock, trimmed and edged with black ink, then added to the chair back.
I hope my card will spark your creative genes and you will head to your crafting table to create something for the Stampotique Designers' Challenge this week!
I am glad that you stopped by today. Your visits and your comments are important to me. I read every one of them!
