Design Team Application for...

Belles 'N Whistles, one of my favorite rubber stamp companies, is having an open Call for Design Team Member. Of course this being one of my very favorite rubber stamp companies I am very much hoping to be offered on of the 4 positions they have open for this Call. This would be a dream come true to be on this design team. I mentioned Belles 'N Whistles a few days ago when I put another card up on my blog. If you missed that posting I mentioned that the artist for Belles 'N Whistles is Elisabeth Bell. She is very talented and I just love all the stamps she creates for Belles 'N Whistles.
This card is made with Belles 'N Whistles "Cupcake" Stamp. I created the background with distressing inks and water on watercolor paper then added the cut out stamped imaged and embellishments. I also used this stamp on a card I posted the other day. As you can see the Belles 'N Whistles stamps are so very cute and versatile, they can be used on almost any card or project. Is it any wonder they are one of my absolute favorite rubber stamp companies!
This is "Sunshine & Apples" from Belles 'N Whistles. I placed her here on a background that I created with a single stamp, some masking, stipple brush and various memento inks. I posted another sample using this stamp sometime ago. If you missed that posting I had sewn several designer papers onto the card and then placed this cut out stamp on top of the card.
I love cutting out my images and attaching them to a variety of backgrounds on cards and other 3-D projects. It's been a while since I've made 3-D projects but as it is getting time to start making Christmas Gift for this year I will begin making such projects very soon. I will be sure to take photo of all my creations to share with you all here as always. Until next time be cleverly creative and have an extraordinary day!
