My Guest Designer Slot!!!

I love to take part in challenges as it stretches my creativity, making me try new things!  One of my favourite challenges to take part in is the one at the Simon Says Stamp Flickr group  so I was thrilled when I was approached by Barb to be the Guest Designer for the #107 challenge "Do it with Dimension".

Well as you can imagine I set to work straight away and came up with these cards.

For my first card I decided to make a shaker (Love making these)  I used the SSS Stitched Square dies to create the frame.  The flowers are from the  SSS "Spring Flowers " which I stamped, embossed in silver, coloured with Zigs  and fussy cut, layering up to create lots of dimension. Always love a bit of bling lol!

My second card again used the "Stitched Square dies" and the " Cosmos Flower Background" , I stamped the flowers with Distress ink then cut the squares.  I then  coloured the central square with my Zigs and layered up on a white frame. Added the " Thanks" die cut and some sequins for sparkle.

For my last card I went with a Christmas theme as I have loads to make in the next few months.  For this card I used the "Kaleidoscope Background" stamping and embossing once in gold and again in white.  I fussy cut four of the flower shapes from the white image and coloured with a red Zig pen, then layering two together to form a flower.  After die cutting the gold image I then layered on the red flowers adding a pearl for shimmer.

I really enjoyed making these cards and hope that maybe you will find time to play along with this challenge.

Have a great week.
