September Guest Designers

Today we are sharing the last few creations from our two September Guest Designers.  They have both been fantastic and have really inspired us all!

Marina made an adorable birthday card AND made another video! YAY! She used Wish Big for this beauty!

Here is a little bit about this project from Marina:

"The Alley Way Stamps has a lot of comical and cartoony looking stamps but I wanted to share with you that you can turn it into a nice watercolouring piece. This is just another way you could stretch your Alley Way stamps. With this no-line colouring technique, it gives an illusion that I've drawn the balloons myself hehe. But it's actually thanks to the Wish Big stamp set. Try it out! "

We have the final two projects from Chitra to share today, too!!! YAY!

She used Monster Mash for these amazing candy bag toppers! I LOVE IT!

She used Petal Pushers with some patterned paper to create this stunning creation.  It really pops - WOW!

Thank you to both Guest Designers - we've loved having you both with us this month!!!

Hi Dana here!! I'm sharing another card featuring the September release!! I just can't get enough of these cute dino cards!! Today i used Prehistoric, Stomper and Livin' Fossils.

Hello there, Tanja here with my last dino card this month. Oh it was a wonderful time with all the cuties :-) I used  Livin' Fossils, Stomper and Prehistoric. See you!

Hello, it's Sabine. I made this cute tag using Stomper. The little dinosaur was paper pieced and fuzzy cut and popped up to rawr off the tag :D 
Perfect for every dinosaur lover!

Thankful For You!

Hey Everyone! Vicky made another adorable TAWS video for us to enjoy! Hope you will check it out!

Hi! Chrissie here! The weather is changing in the Chicagoland area and that has me thinking of Fall! I used the leaves from Livin' Fossils (yes, this set is SO versatile - it's not just the dinos that are cute!) and a sentiment from It's Fall About You!

Hiya!  Lisa here to share a cute little friendship card, that would be perfect for any childhood friend!  I've stamped my little baby friends from the Livin' Fossils Stamp Set and the little egss come from the Stomper Set.  I die cut my image into a circle and finally added my sentiment from the Prehistoric Set!

 Wish Big!! Hey there! Jeni here with a bit of birthday cheer! It seems as though I never quite have enough birthday cards, and today this little number has hit the spot! I love this cute dino and sentiment from the Livin' Fossils set! I love that the choice of marker makes these dinos feminine or masculine...perfect!!

Hey there, it's Christine. This is my card using Livin' Fossils:

3d Washi Tape Layering

Hey everyone! I just wanted to let you know I finally got around to doing the 3d washi tape layering you all asked for.. So come check it out :) HERE HUGS ALi
Hey stampers, Anni here! I have another dino card for you - aren't they cute! For this card I chose one from Livin' Fossils and added a sentiment from Rock Solid.

Hi! Dana here!! Today i have a cute little card for you. I saw a challenge that had a photo prompt with apples, but the challenge was over so i moved on looking at other challenges. But i could get the idea of apples out of my head, so i just decided to do it and make a card featuring apples! I used Got It Covered (sentiment), Buggin Out (jar) and Tag Alongs (apples).

Hey there!  It's Tracy here with my dino-mite card!  I stamped the dinosaur from the Livin' Fossil set with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  I then colored it in with Distress Markers and a water brush.  The sentiment comes from the same stamp set.

Hello, it's Sabine. I made a CAS card using Stomper (the rock) and Prehistoric (the sentiment).

Monster Mash!

We're back with our fabulous September Guest Designer again today! Woo hoo!

Marina made an adorable creation using Monster Mash, Wish Big, and Alphabet Soup! Here is what she said about her card:

"I wanted to share that you don't need watercolour paper to do some simple and basic watercolouring. As you can see, I'm just using regular kraft paper. If you don't dilute it with so much water, you can make a vintage-looking watercoloured image. I hope you've been inspired to look through your The Alley Way stamp sets and mix them up. The Alphabet Soup stamp set is really handy to have so that you can create your very own sentiment. "

And here is her AMAZING video she created for this card: ENJOY!

Anni here with one of my all time favorite: Birds of a Feather. I thought this cute bird would go perfectly with this sentiment from Rock Solid.

Hello!  It's Lisa here with a missing you card that could be masculine or feminine!  For this card I have created a ghost like leaft background by inking cardstock with destress inks and stamping the leaf image from the Stomper Stamp Set with water.  I then stamped my little triceratops image from the Livin Fossils Set, colored and fussy cut before adhering to my card with foam adhesive.  Hope you like it!

Hey there!! Jeni here with a fun little Livin' Fossil card!! I love this little group of Dinos...makes my heart happy!! Aren't they cute little dinos!? This great sentiment is from Prehistoric!
