Dazzing Divas Challenge #7

Welcome to the Dazzling Diva’s Challenge #7!  When I saw this photo, I’m pretty sure I gasped out loud.  Isn’t it stunning?  It got my juices flowin’, that’s for sure!


I was inspired by a stamper friend of mine as well, view the video to see who inspired me and a peek at the card!   The video will also show you how I used my stamps and ink pads to achieve this watercolored look.

This is a very simple layout that packs a punch.

Take the tag off and add a small piece of embossed Metal Sheets, and oh la la!

The stamping didn’t stop here…I kept on creating and filming – here is a sneak peek. Friends, that video will be up on StampNation later today.

As this post goes live, I will be at about 30,000 feet on my way to Anaheim for the CHA Mega Show (Craft & Hobby Association)!

I can’t wait to meet people from all over the crafting industry and get a peek at all the new products that are about to hit the market.  Stay tuned to my Facebook page, I think that is where I will be doing most of my updating from the event.

To say I’m excited it putting it quite mildly!
