Fashionable Stamping Challenges

My first DT card and still on cloud nine about the new challenge blog
Fashionable Stamping Challenges

Our first challenge is ANYTHING GOES

Just don’t get to do enough stamping and inking like I used to, so, this is one happy bunny, that we have all started this venture.

For my card I actually got the brayer out which I have not used in … well forever … also used a stamp which hasn’t seen the light of day … probably since I bought it.

Used the Big & Juicy ink pad called Hydrangea, stamped and embossed the image onto white glossy card with white embossing powder, then brayered, even did some quilling. Decided on quite a simple card but very elegant looking … me thinks the dress looks just like a fashion model would wear. Found a beautiful piece of lace which I put behind the nestie frame.

Time to hop on over to see all the Teemies cards … where they get there inspiration from is beyond me!!!


Bet you want to know what you can win if you enter, well here it is, two stamps.

    Shirl this is one amazing card. The white with the contrast of the purple and blue is just stunning. I love your stamp and want to know where you got it from and it fits perfectly with the new challenge name. The gorgeous embellishments add that final touch, you have done a magnificent job.
    Many thanks to both you and Andrew for all your hard work in getting this all together.

    Bit of an oops from me Shirley and many apologies as I’ve just realised I didn’t leave you a comment on this gorgeous card. Mostly cos my cold thing has left me with a head full of cotton wool! Sorry to be so behind and really love the card colours and the image too.
    Hugs, Fliss xx
