Market Street Stamps Guest Designer

I was so excited last month when this card was chosen as the winner of Market Street Stamps' monthly Block Party!  That means I'm their guest designer for the month of November and my first card were featured on the blog yesterday.

I decided to use my winning card as inspiration for my two cards.  For this one I again used the triangle stamps from Nuts About Nature but this time I used the open triangles and stamped them on patterned paper.  I then fussy cut them and created a flower.  I used the Bit of Burlap background stamp to give some texture to the card base and I finished it off with a sentiment from Great Big Greetings (which is definitely one of my favourite recent releases) and a whole lot of Glossy Accents!

For this card I again used rainbow colours but this time for the sentiments (also from Great Big Greetings).  The Candy Stripe background stamp gives a bit of pizzazz to the card base and this adorable phone from Teacher Notes is the perfect partner for the sentiment!  

If you've never checked out Market Street Stamps before then you are missing out and you must have a look around their shop.  And I'll be back on November 30th with some more MSS cards!

Hooray for being a GDT with MSS! I love both these cards, especially the way you glossed up the flower petals and stamped the repeating sentiment in various colours.
