Hi everyone, it's Michelle here! To have fun with some bright, happy colors, I used one of my favorite techniques of repeated stamping in a rainbow pattern. I also did some simple masking for my sentiment to make it stand out. I used stamps from the stamp sets "Point of View" and "It's My Party!"

And since this will be my last post/video for the Alley Way Stamps, make sure to stay connected over at my blog, on YouTube, and Instagram! :)

Hi everyone it's Holly here with my final card as well.. It's been a blast creating with the Alley Way Stamps and a huge Thank you to everyone on the team as well as Chrissies and Alison! I'm using Branching out and Big Time for a fun watercolor card.

You Will Be Missed...

Hello crafters!  Julia A. here and today is my last post and video for The Alley Way Stamps. It's been a fantastic 6 month journey with this team, and I can't thank Alison enough for inviting me to play along with her gorgeous images.

Today, for my very last card, I am using the mini set "Blast Off" and a German sentiment that says 'You Will Be Missed Here', which is how I feel about The Alley Way Stamps. Thank you for having me!

To see how I created the card and colored the rocket, check out the video below.

Hi Friends!  Meredith here for my final Alley Way post.  It's been an amazing year with this wonderful crafty team.  Thank you Alison and Chrissie so much for this fantastic opportunity.  I will miss being a part of such a phenomenal group.  For my last creation I used Happy Everything in combination with Branching Out to make this fun birthday card.

Hi it's N@ Ali. This little flower from Flower Doodles is one of my favourite stamps ever! I just love how it turns so different each time, and it's very relaxing to add color to it! If you have this set already here's an idea to make a Christmas card out of it, if you don't there's still time to get your hands on it here!!

Hello! Dana here with a card featuring Point of View. I used pigment inks to make a Chevron background and the tiny sentiments in the stamp set!

Hi all!  Angel here with my last TAWS design team card :(  I've had such fun creating with these ladies!!!  The sentiment is from the From Us set and the numbers are from the Digits set.  I hope you all have a wonderfully Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year!

Hi guys! This is Emily Cupely with my last card for TAWS. I really have enjoyed my term in this amazing team and hope you have enjoyed my cards as well. Below is the video tutorial where I used the Rain or Shine and Point of View stamp sets to create a 4 bar card. Enjoy & happy holidays! ♥

Video: Wish, Shine, Twinkle, Sparkle

Hi Everyone. It's Julia W back for my last post with TAWS. It has been absolutely wonderful contributing to a team of designers that I so sincerely admire. For today's how-to video, I'm sharing a winter card using stamps from the fabulous Winter's Butterflies stamp set. As always, you can watch the video below, or over on the TAWS YouTube channel. I wish you all a very merry Christmas and nothing but the best for 2016. 

Hi, it's Yuki! I know Christmas is right around the corner, but I've already finished up and mailed out all of my holiday cards. I'm still short on birthday cards, so for today, I decided to make a fun belated birthday card featuring Sea Mates and Happy Everything.
"Crab, I Forgot" by Handmade by Yuki | Sea Mates and Happy Everything by The Alley Way Stamps
I colored the cute crab with Copic markers and fussy-cut him out, leaving a white border. I used 2 different sizes of stitched rectangles to create the layered, window effect. For the focal panel, I created the waves by using the negative portion a scalloped border die. I clear heat embossed the sentiment from "Happy Everything" and colored the water using Mermaid Lagoon and Salty Ocean distress inks. I then used Tumbled Glass and Broken China for the sky. I used a stitched circle die to create the sand bank for the crab and colored it with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo distress inks.

I just love the puny sentiment and the fun layout. I hope you were inspired by today's card and be sure to swing by my blog for a full list of supplies. Thanks for stopping by!

Hi everyone it's Holly here with a fun cheery Christmas card today. I'm using the super fun set Penguins on Parade and the coordinating Everyday's a Holiday. My Sentiment is from Happy Everything.
