Whiff of Joy Guest Design Team Call

Hi Everyone

I hope you are all having a wonderfully relaxing weekend, I have all day to craft as my in-laws have taken my girls out for the day - bliss. Today I have three cards for you all made using stamps from Whiff of Joy , I adore their stamps, they are so cute, the prices they charge are fab and the print quality is brilliant - what more could you ask for.

The cards I made today I have decided to use as my application to be a Guest Design Team member of Whiff of Joy - being able to work for them would be a dream come true, as I said I love their stamps and it would be like Christmas come early to have the chance to design for them.

My first card uses one of the new Fall stamps designed by Elisabeth Bell - she is an amazing artist, I chose to use one of the stamps of Willow called Fall Willow catching leaves, I think she is so beautiful and I decided that I had to use my copics to colour her. I have used some papers from a Diecuts with a View Floral stack for the card and finished it off with some flowers and rhinestones from my stash. As she is a fall stamp I chose to use the yellows & oranges but I liked it combined with the blue just to add something a bit different.

Here is a closer look at Willow - isn't she adorable!

For this card I had to use one of the stamps from the Charlotte & Charlie Medieval collection designed by Alison Acton because they are my daughters favourite WOJ stamps, the one I chose to use is called Maid Charlotte - she looks like she is having a wonderful day. Once again I had to colour her with my copic markers! (sorry I know I said I would try to use other methods but I'm addicted to them!) For my backing papers I used some from the Blueberry Hill collection produced by Papermania which is distributed by D0-crafts here in the UK, to finish the card I used some paper flowers from Kaisercrafts with some rhinestones from my stash and added a ribbon from my ribbon collection

Here is a closer look at Charlotte - she is so cute!

For my final card I went back to the designs of Elisabeth Bell for my stamp, I love all the Willow stamps she designs, this particular one is from the Summer 2009 collection and is called Willow with Strawberry Basket. I coloured her with my copic markers and chose to use some more papers from the Diecuts with a View Floral stack. I finished the card with some grosgrain ribbon from the Dovecraft Smirk collection, some prima flowers and pale green faux pearls from my stash.

Here is a closer look at Willow - I adore her.

If, like me, you would like to be considered for the Guest position at Whiff of Joy then the deadline is actually today but you can find the details at Katharina's Blog . I have everything crossed that I am lucky enough to be chosen but I know the competition will be very high. If you would like to have some of these little cuties at your house then you can find them on the Whiff of Joy website.

Well that's it for this post as I know the girls will be home in 15 minutes. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
