Some time ago, I sent in an application for DRS Guest Designer. I received word back from Cathy that they have selected me for the November/December spot. Today it was announced in the DRS blog and I am so looking forward to playing around with their stamps for the next 2 months.
My very first card using stamps from DRS was made using the Candy Cane Cottage Stamp. The image was stamped 2x on white cs with Tuxedo Black Memnto Ink. I colored part of the image with Copic markers and for the roof top and ground I added some Aleene's Glitter snow. On the second stamped image I colored the candy canes, added Clear Glossy Accents and used some Glitter Snow once more to the ground, cut around that portion and adhered it on top of the first image with dimentionals. The image was then popped up onto a Labels 8 die from Spellbinders. On the die cut I stamped some snowflakes and embossed it with Clear Sparkle embossing powder and also added some dots with a white Signo pen. Background panels was made using the Large Original Plaid from DRS which was stamped at a slant, cut into strips and mounted on red cs. The strips were then adhered onto white cs, and then onto red cs.
Had lots of fun with with all these stamps.
