The Stamping Boutique Challenge "Back to School"

It's Friday again and you know what that means, a new card from the Stamping Boutique. This week's challenge over at the blog is "Back to School" because well the kiddos go back to school in a week. 

I used TSB image: New Wings Cynthia 

I decided to go with a non traditional back to school image. I love this image and it also fits the back to school theme so well.  I stamped the sentiments using tiny letter stamps and then added a hashtag in front.  The background is embossed and inked with "My Favourite Things" Pure Plum Hybrid ink.  

So now's your chance to join us show us your back to school cards and projects.  You've got a chance to win some images from The Stamping Boutique. All the information and more inspiration by the rest of the design team over at the challenge blog. check it out!

I've got another card to share with you from The Stamping Boutique.  Last week on the blog it was announced that Glitterbabe (Stef Hughes) is now creating images for The Stamping Boutique! her images are in the store and you can find them here!!! The Design Team will be showing off their creations using new images on non-challenge Fridays!! 

Image used: GB Boo Tombstone

I've got to admit I'm not a huge spooky fan of Halloween.  I don't mind the costumes, food and fun but I've just never been a huge Halloween person. So I decided to make this card a bit fun instead of scary.

Be sure to head over to the challenge blog to see more great cards with this image and a few more. Also check back regularly for more great images and challenges. Also there is a Design Team call for The Stamping Boutique which is open till tomorrow, all the details on the blog!

The Stamping Boutique "At the beach" Challenge

Happy Friday! It's finally here. What are your weekend plans? Well today I've got a card to share with you from The Stamping Boutique.  We've got another challenge going on over at the blog. This week's challenge is "at the beach"  Be sure to visit the blog so you can get all the details and participate with us too. 

I really like how this card turned out. I coloured the image with copics and spectrum noir markers. The chevron pattern is done by using Heidi Swapp stencil minis (Patterns) I used "My Favourite Things" Razzle Berry hybrid ink for that.  The sentiment is a $1.50 Michael's stamp and to finish it off I added a few pink and white half pearls.

Now it's your turn to create a at the beach card. Come on it's still Summer so let's get crafty and do a project that still fits with the theme of Summer well we've got a chance. We'd love to see all your at the beach projects. Remember there is even a chance to win some Stamping Boutique images.  Also over on the blog there are some great projects and inspiration by the rest of the design team. It's really worth checking out.

Stay tuned there are lots of new images and news coming for the Stamping Boutique too in the coming weeks and months!
