Your Next Stamp 1st Design Team Call

Hi Everyone

Today's cards are for my application to be a part of Your Next Stamps 1st Design Team. They sell really lovely stamps so why not stop by for a look you can find them HERE

So here are the cards I created for my application

For my first card I decided I would make a Christmas card as it is really time to start thinking about making them so that I don't have to rush them at the last minute. For the stamped image I chose Tilda with Hood and coloured with my Copic Ciao markers. I used some Diecuts with a View papers from a Christmas Stack that is sold in the UK and finished it off with some ribbon. flowers and pearls from my stash. The cardstock is also from a DCWV Mat Stack.

I thought in future I would try and add a close up of the image in my posts so here is Tilda for you.

For my second card I thought I would use one of the images from Sew Many Cards which you can find HERE this is Jaden with Cupcake and again I coloured the image with my Copic Ciao markers. For this card I used papers from a company called Papermania which are distributed by a UK company called Design Objectives (Do-crafts, if you visit their site HERE you can find a local retail outlet for them), the cardstock is from a Provocraft block and the buttons are from my button drawer. So this is my close up of Jaden.

Well these are my two entry projects, I really hope that Your Next Stamp likes them and that I am lucky enough to be chosen as one of their 1st ever Design Team members. If you are interested in applying too then the deadline is today and you can find all the details HERE

Thanks for stopping by my blog - all the comments I've received recently have been so kind, I really do appreciate them

I too wish you the best on your DT application. Love both of your cards. They are beautifully coloured and planned. Good choices for your DP.
I would have to say you are a Magnolia addict as of now - as soon as you 'have to have' one I think it begins! LOL
Big hugs, Candy
