Stamp Simply #93 and Awesome News!


Sharon Johnson has a fun Stamp Simply challenge planned for you today! It was sure one that I enjoyed doing, and I know you'll have fun, too! One of Sharon's favorite color combinations is blue and green.... specifically a grassy green, and sky blue. And one of her most favorite techniques is to add piercing to your creation! So today's challenge is two-fold.... create something using shades of blue and green (you can add other colors too, but the primary focus should be these two colors), and incorporate some piercing into your design! But most of all, just HAVE FUN!

Now one of the reasons why this was so much fun for me was because I got to use my new Whipper Snapper stamps that just arrived at the store today! I knew that Otto the Owl would fit in perfectly with these colors! As you can see, I've added some piercing around my oval, and in all four corners of my card front. A little May Arts ribbon (which kinda' makes me think of an owls eyes!) and my card was finished! I hope you all like it!

Stop by Sharon's blog for all the details, and her amazing sample for inspiration! And speaking of inspiration, we have two new members of the Stamp Simply team! We are welcoming past guest designers Jenny Gropp and Barbara Anders to the team on a permanent basis, and I'm so happy to have them both joining us! I know you'll be inspired by their awesome creations! This is also our last week with guest designer Sabrina Jackson, who has also been a great inspiration this month! Stop by all the girls' blogs for all the blue/green combos!

Sabrina Jackson, June Guest Designer
