I'm a Happy Little Stamper!!

I'm a day late with this exciting news as I spent yesterday with my dad. Important, special and treasured time.
But I'm super excited to share with you that I am officially a member of the Happy Little Stampers sketch design team!!

In honor of this exciting news, I put together two cards for each of the current challenges they have going on right now. The first is the sketch challenge

I did some ink blending with Ranger Inks Peacock Feather, Mustard Seed and Antique Linen using a large oval as a template. If you look closely, you can see little sand dunes under each of the trees and under the penguin chilling out on his blanket. Those were stamped using PTI's Friendship Jar Summer Fillers. MFT's Penguins in Paradise couldn't have arrived at a better time yesterday so I could create this adorable card to celebrate today.
"Today" is always a new day and a new reason to celebrate because "this is the day that the Lord has made!"
I added some clear Wink of Stella on the pretty little hibiscus flowers at the top of the scene. The sentiment is from PTI's Friendship Jar.

My next card was made using the sprays and mists challenge

The rectangle panel was cut using MFT's Stitched Rectangular Stax and I sprayed on cherry and gold sprays from Heidi Swapp using a polka dot stencil also from Heidi Swapp. The flower was cut using MFT's Layered Rose with gold leaves cut from Royal Leaves. The sentiment is cut three times and stacked to give dimension, using My Creative Times Hello Frame Dies. I then added a couple of coats of black Wink of Stella to the sentiment.

A white candy dot from Queen Co. to the center of the flower finishes it off.

July will bring exciting new challenges to the Happy Little Stampers blog as all their new designers will start their journeys and the new Christmas challenge will also be starting.
So be sure to pop on over to the Happy Little Stampers Blog and meet their new design team members and join in on one of the fun current challenges going on right now!
Thanks so much Kylie and Loll for this new adventure!

I'm also adding one or more of these cards to the following challenges:
Seize the Birthday "Animal" challenge
Word Art Wednesday challenge
Simon Says Monday Challenge

Thanks so much for stopping by! Blessings~ Birgit
