Paper Sundaes Design Team Call

Paper Sundaes is hosting a design team call for two new members. If you're interested in applying, I've got the details below or you can go directly to their link here. I'm quite excited about this and am throwing in my hat.

I've chosen my three cards to feature different techniques.

My first card is an easel card using Red Hearts from Sweet Pea Stamps which came from Paper Jewels. I love these stamps. The image is heat embossed with clear embossing powder and then coloured with Prisma colours and baby oil. On her wings and locket I used Waterfall Stickles to give colour and depth. The entire image was then spritz with a clear shimmer that you can't really see in the photos but looks great in the sunlight. The paper is Basic Grey and the ribbon was from Walmart. I chose this card to feature my use of prisma colouring, and my ability to use layers, and DP to make an elaborate card.

My second card is a CAS (clean and simple card) featuring Studio G stamps in which the candy corn was paper pieced. The bats are a Martha Stewart punch. I thought it would be a great idea to show different styles. I also love to create CAS cards because they tend to lend themselves more towards masculine cards.

My third card was chosen because it uses a digital image. Knowing that some sponsors use digi images, I wanted to demonstrate that I am comfortable using my computer to craft. The image is from Dustin Pike. He often posts freebies on his site and they are just great fun - especially for little boys! The image is coloured with Copics with just a few stickles in the basic. Hey I had to be true to myself!

Hope you enjoy the cards. I'm loving seeing everyone's entry. Good luck to all entrants!
