Go To Gal Designer Challenge

Hi. Welcome to my blog if you are visiting for the first time! Today marks my first blog post as a Paper Crafts Go To Gal over on the Paper Crafts Connection blog. It is thrilling, exciting, a dream come true, and honestly, a bit nerve wracking. I am nervous. I want to share the best with you. To inspire you. Nothing is more fulfilling than sharing ideas and seeing that someone was encouraged to try and to create a beautiful project! That is my hope for the next couple of years and my forthcoming blog posts!

Today is also a fun day because it marks our first Go To Gal Designer Challenge! Every so often will we “challenge” each other to use products and today we are using stamps from The Craft’s Meow. And I love these stamps! Such high quality and they stamp beautifully!!

And this photo was the inspiration for my card today. I love Queen Anne’s Lace and the other evening I was having fun taking photos of the flowers in the sunset. Having a set of snowflake stamps, I began to ponder if I could somehow create these flowers with snowflake images…



this is your day with The Crafts Meow by Kimberly Crawford
It worked!! I started by stamping the snowflake image from Vintage Snowflakes using pale green ink, twice, turning the stamp for the second impression. Once that dried, the image was stamped one more time and heat embossed with white powder.

Here is a closer look at the “flowers.” Kinda fun to use your stamps in more than one way!! :)
Stop and visit all the Go To Gals and see what they have created!
