And to celebrate Guylou's Inimitability is having a Christmas Card Challenge...and you could be the one receiving the gift! To enter all you have to do is enter any newly made Christmas cards or projects, but in order to qualify to win, you will need to use a Guylou's Inimitability digistamp. If you don’t have any GI images, you can visit Guylou's Inimitability Store or you can have a look for a freebie in her group on Crafters Digital Art Center!
The winner will be awarded a digistamp of her choice from Guylou's Inimitability Store and will also be invited to be a Guest Designer on an upcoming challenge and will get another GI digistamp to make a card or project along the DT. Now who wouldn't want that? So go on over and check things out...you have nothing to loose and the possibility of something to win!
So to give you an idea of one of her marvelous stamps, this is the image and card that I am entering into the challenge. Her name is Louise with a candycane and she is just the most wondeful image. Makes you think of cold winter days as soon as you see her! You can find her in Guylou's store here . I decided that she really needed something a little different. So I went with a Double slider card. I found the directions for this style of card on the Stampin Up site. When you first look at it, it looks like any other card....
But instead of opening this card up like a regular card, it has a double slider!
The red cardstock is from SU and is called Cherry Cobbler. The designer paper is by Momenta and I got it at Zellers. I used Cuttlebugs Vintage dies for the corners and I used a candycane stamp from a Michael's set, and stamped it with Versa mark on the base of the card. Stickles have become my new best friend and I used my Star Dust stickles on the trim of her hat, sleeves, boots, collar and pompoms hanging from her jacket. She is colored using SU water colors. The candy cane is colored with atyouSpica glitter pen from Michaels, as well as her mittens and the ties for her pompoms. I sponged around Louise with my Cherry Cobbler ink pad. The first slider is stamped with a Santa's hat, with SU basic black ink, from a kit I got from Micheal's and then is sponged around the edges with Cherry Cobbler. The Merry Christmas stamp is from the SU Cardinal Christmas set. On the back slider I used the candycane stamp again, but this time I used Cherry Cobbler for the ink, and stamped the whole page with it. And I did the edges of it with the Cherry Cobbler ink pad.
