Hi Everyone, I'm back from the Heirloom Stamp & Paper Arts Festival in Puyallup, WA and we had a great show thanks to our helpers Ginny, Deana and Renee. Today is our Design Team Challenge and the theme is for men! We don't have a large selection of men theme products but our Car Classics and Favorite Fellas Stamp Sets were big sellers at the show so I'm also posting some great past samples below but I bet there will be some new ones today. We are also working on a Baseball and Barber Shop sets that I'm excited about that will debut in July. Please click on each of our DT Ladies Blog links below to see their wonderful creations! Then scroll down to read about our Blog Giveaway!
You can enter to win a great Blog Giveaway Prize just by leaving a comment here on this blog post. Please tell me if you ever use CD's to print paper or images, or do you do any digi scrapping? The winner will receive both Favorite Fellas and Car Classics PLUS - Our NEW CD, Creating with Vintage Patterns! It's finally done but getting manufactured and it turned out amazing and is packed full! A random.org lucky winner will be announced next week when I post from Nebraska as I'm leaving early tomorrow to go visit DT Leader & good friend Vicki Chrisman. It's a mix of fun & work and I will do a post from Vicki's house on Friday, May 20/11 and show a CD preview and special!
I promised several ladies at the show that I would look for some more fun samples using our Car Classics and Favorite Fellas Clear Art Stamps. Look at this fun card by past DT Member Anna Wight using our Favorite Fellas set.
I love the way Elizabeth (I_love_rubber) cut a hole to peel back her map paper to push her road through.
Dee Fillmore used our Car Classics set to teach a class last year at Scrap Arts in North Vancouver, BC which included this fun 3 D card.
Here's a great layout by DT member Heidi Blankenship and she gives step by step instructions HERE on her blog
Sophie La Fontaine was our Guest DT last month and created several samples using our Car Classics set and this one below was one of my favs. Here's a link to a 'Car Classics' search on Splitcoast and there are 15 other samples from Sophie and various card makers using our set!
This is such a cute booklet DT Member Pam Hooten created for Fathers Day using our Fishing Buds stamp set. She cut it from a 12 x 12" piece of cardstock and scored the folds.
Here's a fun card DT member Linda Duke created with Favorite Fellas when it first came out but I still smile every time I see the shaving cream beard she add with Liquid Applique from Stampin’ Up!
This layout below is by DT member Julie Campbell
We have lost our webmaster Karin to a full time job and our new lady Laura is just learning the ropes and hasn't been able to add all the old samples to our new website. So I did a search on Splitcoast and found over 3o samples for Favorite Fellas!
Darlene Pavlick is hosting a fun Recipe challenge over at Spitcoast Stampers you can read about HERE and see the Gallery HERE. Look at the beautiful card she created using stamps from our SM 31 Rose.
Wishing you joy & creativity
