City Crafters Challenge Stamp it Out ...

Hi there ... I hope you all enjoyed your celebrations and are looking forward to the New Year ... today of course is week 37 of City Crafter Challenge ... Linda is hosting for us and has challenged us to use stamps ... rubber or clear ... on our card or project. I don't know about you, but faced with a challenge to use something we use regularly without thinking about ... suddenly draws a blank ... for a while I stared at my box of rubber stamps, fumbled through my box of clear stamps ... and finally decided on one of each ...



Our sponsor this week is our dear friend June and she kindly sent us all 
some of her beautiful handmade pins to use on our projects


I stamped the swallowtail butterfly (an Inca rubber stamp) twice, layered it and added blue sparkly stickles to various places and used this lovely pin as the body for the butterfly


I used a lovely border stamp (a gift from Stella) and brown pigment ink to stamp directly  on the Jack and Jill Prima paper ... 
We also have a fantastic Guest Designer this week ... Betik  ... please take a moment to check out her fabulous creations ... you won't be disappointed I can tell you ... I can't wait to see what you all come up with this week ... 

Till soon

~ Ros ~

HA! YES!!!!!! i nearly spit out my coffee reading this, b/c you did *EXACTLY* what i often do: i can make 347 cards in a row that have stamps on...but then...someone says, "make a card with stamps!"...and i've got NUTHIN'!!!!!!! :) :) :) thank you for saying that, i feel bizarrely validated now! :)

moving on to the card: YEEEEEOWZA, missus! clearly once you got MOVING your "stamp freeze" was short lived and no longer an issue b/c this is ♥FABULOUS♥! (using the gorgeous beaded pin as the butterfly's body is brilliantly inspired!!!!!) ♥
