STAMPlorations Spotlight Week - Heaven Sent


It's Day 4 of the fabulous STAMPlorations April Release Spotlight Week, and today we're back on the baby theme with this gorgeous Heaven Sent set:


I had this piece of watercoloured card left over from a project last week, and it reminded me of sky and clouds, so I thought I'd do a teddy floating in from heaven.  I stamped the teddy on white card and coloured it with Distress Inks and fussy cut it.  It had curled slightly so I just stuck it down in the centre and left the legs and arms free to imply that it was floating.  I added a strip of lace to add to the nostalgic feel of the design.


Check out what our guest designer Darnell and the rest of the Design Team have created for your inspiration.  You'll find links to all our projects here.  Make sure you leave a comment on each blog for a chance to win prizes:

  • FIVE (5) commenters randomly drawn from the designers' blogs will each win a $10 gift certificate.
  • ONE (1) commenter randomly drawn from the STAMPlorations blog will win a $25 gift certificate
  • and there could well be some surprise prizes ;)


Stops on the hop:
