Fantasy Stampers are Go!

Happy New Year everyone,

Well, here's to a new year and a new beginning, and a very exciting one it is for me. After all the planning and waiting our launch day has finally arrived at my new challenge blog

There has been lots of preparation and excitement amongst the design team and we would love you to pop over to the new blog and join in with our very first challenge ever!  As we are primarily a 'stamping' challenge our first theme is

So, we would love to see your projects showcasing your favourite stamps. Now all that said, I sat at my desk pondering this - even though I chose the theme. How do I pick my favourite stamp? Well, I did narrow it down to my 'favourite stamp company' which some of you will already know is 'Lili of the Valley'. Here's what I made for my DT inspiration ...

I made a pretty calendar for my craft room - can you spot the challenge launch date circled!! Lol.

I used a lush background paper from my Lili of the Valley 'Antebellum' paper pad (designed by Raspberry Road Designs) and this set the colour scheme for my project. The stamp is definitely 'one' of my favourites and is called 'Big Hug' by Lili of the Valley and is coloured with my Promarkers. I mounted it on a die-cut 'Fleur de Lys' square and added lots of stamped flowers, which I sat and cut out before assembling them (all 20 of them!) I added a shop bought calendar tab at the bottom which is mounted on co-ordinating cardstock. Hope you like it.

I would love you to pop over to the challenge HERE and check out the fab work that my teamies have made too. 

So, I really hope you can join us at the beginning of our adventure - I can't wait to see your projects using your favourite stamps. I shall look forward to visiting your blogs over the next couple of weeks - I hope you give us a really tough time choosing a 'Top 3'. 

We are also still looking for extra teamies to join us too, so check out the challenge blog for more details.

Wishing you lots of luck,
Big hugz, Jan xx
