DT Call at Stamplorations!

Wow, isn't this a busy day in my blog -this is my second post already! If you missed my morning post with my new challenge "Use Scraps/ Old Stash for Christmas Cards", click here or simply scroll down.

Anyways, now I have some exciting news to share with you! I've been so lucky to meet STAMPlorations owner Shery Russ in blogland (click here for Shery's personal blog) and also very honored that Shery has asked me to join her design team! I'll be creating cards for challenges at STAMPlorations Challenge Blog and starting from today, we have a month long challenge for you: stamps and sequins! You are free to use any stamps (even digis!) and create not only cards but whatever craft projects in whatever style you choose. Fun, right! The winner gets to choose 2 stamp sets from the new Vignette series or the Holiday series from the shop.

Shery is also choosing new DT members and I'm very excited to see who will be my future DT friends! You are expected to create a minimum of 3 craft projects/month using STAMPlorations stamps: as a DT member you’ll receive samples of upcoming stamps in the STAMPlorations line as well as previously released stamps when they are available. Just how awesome is that?!?! Click here to the challenge post where you'll find all the details of the DT call. I can't wait to visit your blogs and see what you'll make for the challenge and who enters the DT call. Exciting times! :)

Finally, some small notes on my card... I've used Distressed Floral Swirls to create my background. I used Embrace inks -they have a metallic shine so the swirls have a beautiful glow in real life -so hard to catch that to a photo! Sequins and punched snowflakes embellish my sentiment "Warm Christmas Wishes and a Happy New Year". 

Thanks for popping by and do visit the STAMPlorations November Challenge + DT Call now!

I'd like to enter the following challenges: Make it yourself (background)
