Stampotique Designer's Challenge #7 Tempting Templates

It's time for another Stampotique Designers Challenge! Don't worry if you don't have any Stampotique stamps yet! Now's your opportunity to join our challenge using any stamps that inspire your creativity for a chance to win a $15 Stampotique gift certificate!

This week, Valerie Wilson challenges you to use a template for any part of your project (the card, something on the card, whatever) - or it doesn't have to be a card at all. If the mood strikes you to use a template that makes a box or a baggie or some other interesting project, please go for it! Let your creative muse guide you wherever it wants to go!

Also, please be sure to include the source of your template in your post on your blog to give credit... or include a link to it if it is an on-line freebee.

If you don't already have a hard drive jam packed with interesting templates like Valerie does (oh, she's blushing), here are a few links where you'll find some wonderful templates to work with:

For my card I used the card with Detachable Bookmark Tutorial, which you can find HERE on Splitcoast Stampers! What's even MORE exciting is that Carol just sent us a whole new release of Stamps Designed exclusively for Stampotique by our own talented Design Team Member Jo Capper-Sandon. Congratulations Jo on your accomplishment!!! If you click the link on her name, you can see her entire release! I love them all so much that I used four images on my card.

Big Bee
, Giant Shroom Jasmin Each life needs Even Silence Speaks and Medium Bee All Fabulous Stamps!!!

I stamped Jasmin, then creating a mask for her, stamped the Shroom in behind. I coloured with Copics. On the Sentiment and Bookmark, I used Eggplant Ink, Saffron for the background of bees. Accesories included the scalloped circle punch, cropadile and some eggplant ribbon.

Sure hope you'll play along with us! Be sure to click the link to the challenge blog and visit my team mates to view their scrumptious creations!!!
