Wow, October already... It was just August! New month brings new challenges to STAMPlorations and we start with the month long challenge: Embossing. Our first fortnightly sketch challenge begins on Monday and there's another sketch challenge coming after that: Play along in all 3 challenges in October and you have a chance to win an extra prize of 12 assorted rub-ons (photo below). We also have stamp prizes, digi prizes and guest designer spots on offer for you: all the details are in the challenge blog. You'll find a stunning display of DT cards there too, I'm sure you'll love everyone's work! We are very proud to have the superstar of stamping, Virginia Lu, as our guest designer this month.
My DT card was a very simple, fast make but I think the heat embossing on vellum gives it a nice look! I've been making a lot of cards with darker colors (and a lot of blue!) lately and I thought it was about time to bring in the happy yellows and pinks again. :) My sketch inspiration comes from Clean and Simple Stamping, one of my favorite sketch blogs. Natasha's DT card with vellum was extra inspirational! It's a pity it's weeks since I've played along last time! I popped the stamped panel up from the card base with 3d stickers and added some rhinestones for bling. Now that I'm looking at the card I think I might remove the rhinestones. Hmm. What do you think?
Before I send you off to STAMPlorations, have a look at the stamp sets I used in my card:
Have a good weekend everyone!
