Design Team Entry

I recently tried out for a Design Team Position at Spellbinders and although I did not make the team I came runner up which to me is a huge accomplishment. I feel quite proud to be chosen as a runner up from the hundreds of applicants.
I thought I would share with you my submissions:

The first photo is a Rubber Stamped Card. I embossed an MSE stamp with White Embossing Powder and then colorwashed the card using Always Artichoke,Old Olive and Blue inks. The background was stamped with the retired Cheesecloth stamp from Stampin Up.

The 2nd is a card using a combination of diecuts and stamps and a skewer as the hanging rail. On the outside of the door (which is layered for depth) I hung a mini tassel.

The third is a layout of my Nephew Jordan. I used Papers and letter buttons from Junkitz, Paint from Making memories, a combination of Ghost and Wood Stars and the title is Chipboard which I embossed using a few different powders to give it a grungy, muddy appearance. I sewed around the large star and used a variety of stamps and inks.

The other entry was an altered project, which has too many photos!

Sneak Peek at a new Stamp Set

This card was created using a new stamp set: Time Well Spent. Stampin Up sent to me for free! It will be in the new catalog. I used Really Rust and Always Apricot Cardstock and Basic Brown ink. I colored in part of the images with my Creamy Caramel marker and added some rhinestones. A very quick card!
