Diva Guest Designer

I got some great news this week--I was chosen by Heidi and Julie to be a guest designer for the Diva Coffee Break Designs challenges! 


The designers showcase Stampin' Up! products, so that means I'll have more samples for my workshops and clubs!  Here are the beautiful colors selected for us for this week:


And here is my creation:


I pulled out a neglected set called Inspired by Nature and stamped it in Versamark ink, then dabbed on some pastels--remember that technique?  I added a few little spritzes of color with Itty Bitty Backgrounds in Garden Green and So Saffron.  The rest is pretty self-explanatory.   I hope you find time to play with these colors!  Link your creation to Mr Linky here at the DCBD blog so we can see them!!  And be sure to check out all the other designers' creations while you're there!

  • Stamps:  Inspired by Nature, Short & Sweet, Itty Bitty Backgrounds
  • Paper:  Garden Green, Regal Rose, Whisper White, Orchid Opulence, Tea Party DP
  • Ink:  Versamark, Orchid Opulence, Garden Green, So Saffron
  • Acc:  Pastels, Wide Grosgrain Ribbon, Eyelet Border Punch, Small & Large Oval Punches, dimensionals
