Hey,

Exciting day today.


This is my first post of two as a guest designer for Sweet Stamps - they make beautiful digi stamps and I am super excited to be working with two of their fun stamps.


I chose the fun Denise Glam Girl stamp for my first project.

Before I start 'building' a card, I like to lay the elements out and see how they will work. Here's a rare photo of that process.


What can you see? A shaker pouch, a card blank, three pieces of card, friend die and sentiment stamp.

The Denise stamp reminded me of a good friend, so I decided this card should be for her.

I really enjoyed colouring the stamp and the great thing about digi's is that I get to print a sheet of them and try out various colourways before choosing the final one, then I still have a sheet of coloured stamps ready to go for later.

I fussy cut the stamp, as I wanted her to sit on the front of my shaker card.

Constructing the card was very easy to do.

I love the girly, but funky feel of the card. I know my friend will love it too.

Visit the Sweet Stamps store, to check out Denise and all the other fun stamps and products that are available.

I'll be back with my next project soon!!
