More Exciting News! In Style Stamps

My Blog has just been a haven of great news as of late! Well, they say no news is good news, but Happy news is so much better isn't it? I was VERY excited to be offered a Guest Designer Position with In Style Stamps for the month of June and July.  ISS, has some of the neatest images I've seen! With Three Stamps Lines; Anime, Retro and Whimsy, there are a lot of wonderful images to choose from! Another cool thing I love about ISS, are the Digital Images and Papers! Talk about immediate gratification! You can fall in love with an image and be working with it almost immediately!

Today you can get these sweet images in a deal! The Kick Start your Summer Karate Package for $14.25 includes the Trent and Justin Stamps along with 8 complimentary Digital papers in 8.5 x 11 or 12x12/ What a deal! 

In addition, you can get a start on Fathers Days Cards or anything Masculine with Stan and Leroy

Hop on over to the ISS Blog for the fun details and links to other great samples! I'll get links for the design team on my blog over the weekend for you as they have some AMAZINGLY TALENTED Ladies on the team! I used the SU! Top Note Die as the base on which to anchor the main image, sponging the "wall" with Saffron to take away the stark look of the white paper. 

I used a base of Red and Black Cardstock and two of the Digi Papers as the base for this card.
Trent and Justin were coloured with copics, hilighted with white gel pen and mounted on dimensionals. The Built Tough sentiment was made with my Graphically Speaking Cricut Cartridge. I initially bought that Cricut to do scrapbooking, but haven't found much time for that, so now I am making a deliberate effort to use it with cards.

The black twill was tied in the manner that one is required to tie their belt at Karate! I think it's kind of a box knot, not completely sure, but had to have it right when dressing Jon for Martial Arts when he was a wee guy!

The small Japanese themed charm, which says strength is from American Crafts and the Star that it's anchored on, is punched with a SU punch!

Stay tuned for lots of great Samples from ISS over the next two months! I can't wait to show you my creations!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!
