September Guest Designer at CraftySteals!

I am the Guest Designer at CraftySteals today! Stephanie is wonderful, and she sent me some Martha Stewart stamps to work with! I created four projects!

First, I used the stamps on this layout! I stamped the border stamps down the side of the layout and under the photo. I stamped the scallop circle down the other side of the layout. I love the way that looks! Then I stamped a plaid circle ring on striped paper and made a journaling circle! I repeatedly stamped a small asterisk/flower stamp in the white strip under the phone. I also stamped a butterfly and a heart, detail cut them, and then added them to the layout. I really love the way this turned out! I love incorporating stamping on my layouts!

Next, I decided to stamp a fun scallop flower trio. The scallop ring and the inner ring are two separate stamps, but I stamped them together. I then used an asterisk/flower stamp and repeatedly stamped it across the card front. Last, I stamped a butterfly, detail cut it, added some rhinestones, and then added it to my card. I love this card! It's bright and fun! It's a happy card!

I decided to try a monochromatic card, and I love the way this turned out! I stamped two butterflies. One is directly on the card front, and the other was stamped on white cardstock, detail cut, and added to the bottom of the card. I stamped the scallop border stamp across the bottom of the card front, and I also stamped it twice on an angle so that it formed a corner design. As you can tell, I really like that asterisk/flower stamp, because I used it again when I stamped a trio on this card front! I'm digging this monochromatic card!

Last, I used one of the elegant flower stamps in a trio, and stamped a simple sentiment under them. I think this card is elegant! I love the way it turned out!

I had a lot of fun creating these projects for Stephanie to feature on the CraftySteals blog! If you check out the blog post, please leave a comment!! Thank you Stephanie for asking me to be one of your guest designers at CraftySteals! It's a thrill! I hope you're having a great day! Thanks for stopping by!
