Whiff Of Joy Guest Designer Call

Today I thought I'd share this card with you that I have made to enter the Whiff Of Joy Guest Designer Call. Every 2 months Katharina puts out a call for some guest designers to make some card samples using the wonderful Whiff Of Joy range of rubber stamps, so I thought that I would enter.

As many of you are well aware I love the stamp designs by Elisabeth Bell and of course Elisabeth Bell designs for Whiff Of Joy, so being a guest designer for 2 months would be a 'dream job'!! (I also like the other stamp designers too - infact WOJ keeps me VERY poor!!)

The challenge this time around is a colour one - you need to use red, orange and one other colour of your choice as well as at least 1 Whiff Of Joy stamp.

As you can see I have used Shopping Willow for my main image (that I bought from The Hobby House) and coloured her using Copics. I then used Walnut Stain distress ink to add some shading around her and applied some diamond glitter glue to add some sparkle.

The papers are by My Minds Eye (bought from The Glitter Pot) and the brown swirls (stamped directly onto the background papers with Walnut Stain distress ink) came from the Spring Swirls Collection that I bought direct from Whiff Of Joy.

The flowers are by Prima.

Anyway wish me luck and keep your fingers crossed for me!!


Tomorrow I am heading up the motorway to Stamp Addicts and am looking forward to catching up with everyone there.  I am unable to get up there very often now so I'm really looking forward to it!!  So Tracy and Sharon - I'll see you tomorrow!!

I knew you couldn't resist those LOTV stamps, Kay. They are so you. I can't wait to see what you do with them. I have just added to my collection, free pp is too good to resist!!
Your WOJ card is gorgeous. The DT spot will be yours for sure, they would be mad not to take advatage of your incredible talent.
Have fun with the Stamp Addicts.
By the way, I was only teasing about those dies, although I am intrigued to see how they work. I'm a sucker for dies!!

Hi Kay, good luck with your entry for the WOJ GD spot. I think WOJ keeps many a crafter poor. I've lost track of how many of their images I have.

I love the card. The brownish tones with the orange and red works fabulously.

I'm off work today taking a day's flexi leave. So I'm hoping to hoping to get some crafting done and refrain from placing any internet orders!

Hugs, Pauline x
