InStyle Stamps Guest Designer :)


Hello everyone~

I have an exciting news to tell you!! I was asked to be the guest designer of InStyle Stamps for a month of February!! Who couldn’t say “No” to their cute stamps? They just came back from their first CHA and the new stamps are releasing this Friday!! I can hardly wait (to get all of them, lol)!! Be sure to check InStyle Blog for the sneak peeks, challenges and the DT’s wonderful creations!!

Since this is my first post as the GDT, I decided to play with their Sketch Challenge (ISSSC02). You can check all of InStyle current challenges on the side bar of InStyle Stamps Blog.


The stamp I used is called Pretty Posies and the set will be available on Friday, Feb 5th!! I also used my color combination from The Color Throwdown 127 (CTD127). I colored the image with Copic markers and sponged the circle mat with brown ink. Then I just followed the sketch and design the card with the coordinated designer papers and cardstock. To finish off, I embellsihed with ribbon, button and blue pearls.



The next card was used another image from Pretty Posies!! I colored the image with Copic markers again and sponged the oval mat with light blue ink. The colors are inspired of the word chipboard stickers. I embellished with the swirl rhinestones & rhinestone flowers and flower chipboard sticker to finish off the card. The sketch was based on the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge 88 (MMSC88 - the submission is closed) … I just changed placing the embellishments so that I can include the word stickers :)
