Imagine how uplifting it was for me to receive an email from Jenny Gropp as I was pulling into my driveway on a Friday afternoon in May after what had been a very trying week at work. She asked me if I would want to join the Outlines Rubber Stamp Company's Design Team. HELLO??!! YES!!! OF COURSE!!! It brightened my mood so much, and since then I've been sitting on this secret. I feel so very honored to be joining such a talented team for a company I have admired for years.
Every Monday, Outlines Rubber Stamps posts a challenge on their blog. If you play along you have a chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate every week! So get crafting!
This week's challenge is called "Red Hot!", to make the color red prominent in your creation.
For this challenge, I elected to use a stamp from the Serendipity line called "Fairy Ring" I-1146. I stamped the image with Marvy black dye onto X-Press It cardstock. I colored the image with Copic markers. I framed the image with red cardstock and patterned paper from Jillibean Soup. For the finishing touches I tied a red polka dotted bow around the card.
Make sure you get "Red Hot" too this week. For some more "Red Hot" inspiration, don't forget to visit other members of Outlines Rubber Stamp Company Design Team:
