Well i was totally gobsmacked to be chosen for the Sugar and Spice Design Team, but absolutely chuffed to bits, so after our first initial team meeting, with heads buzzing of things to make, i chose to use the Love and laughter stamps to create my very first design.
So here they are - Love and Laughter, they are just totally gorgeous and my head was buzzing with all sorts of ideas. I also used Memento Dew drop ink pads (all items available to buy from Sugar and Spice shop too!)
Using the New Sprout, i stamped out a polka dot background using the small circular stamp and also onto a seperate piece i stamped background and flowers using the Lady bug and Rose bud pads. Stamped lots of flowers out and cut them all out and attached using a metal brad.
I also stamped and cut out the heart words to create a leaf effect on the main flower,
stamped out a sentiment, bit of ribbon across the middle, stamped sentiment and matching flower inside and hey presto! my first design team card! Phew!
Hope you like it? These stamps are just gorgeous to work with and there are so many possibilities to create with them, this is just one of the sets sold, so why not pop along to Sugar and Spice and have a look at all the stamps, im sure you will just have to have them all too?
