We had such a fabulous turnout for our current design team call and unfortunately we were unable to take everyone, but we found a few new guest designers along the way and are so excited that they wanted to work with Stampotique for a month. Our August Guest Designer does some fabulous designs with Stampotique, welcome Lisa Mason
this month. Here's a little more about her:
I'm Lisa Mason (Lisa Sparkle), and I was thrilled to be invited to be a guest designer on my favourite challenge blog! Anyone who knows me in a crafty way will know how much I worship my Stampotique stamp collection. They are the most used, looked at and stroked stamps that I own, and I own a LOT of stamps!.
By day I work for a UK university, as a Learning and Skills development manager. In my spare time I'm a stampaholic, and a huge Stampotique fan! I live in the Midlands in the UK, with my husband and two beautiful children, and I love to create bright and colourful projects that make people smile. I've recently found my own style, and I'm happy creating with colour, with a touch of humour and with a lot of mess! I make and swap ATCs regularly, make cards, journal and have boxes full of things to alter one day!
I'm honoured to be asked to guest design with such a talented and inspirational DT, it's a dream come true and I can't wait to share some creations with you all. My blog is at www.lisasparkleandstamps.blogspot.com please come and visit and let me know what you think of my projects!
For this altered thimble display cabinet, I decided to use every Stampotique stamp I own! Well, almost.... I used shrink plastic coloured with pencils, and made a whole set of images. The cabinet was painted and distressed and filled with little things I've salvaged and collected- chess pieces, jewellery parts, zipper pulls, springs, teeny tiny charms. The Stampotique critters each got their own space- it looks as if they live there!
We have our new design team announcement over on the Stampotique Designer's Challenge
so join us over there to see who we have chosen to join us on our Stampotique journey for the next few months.
