This week I have the special privilege

of being a Guest Designer at

The reward for creating your own SPOTS & STRIPES for Stamp Something

(card, layout, or gift item) is the possibility of winning a fabulous prize from

their sponsor, and home of the Pixie Cottage Stamps .

The winner will receive a $10 shop gift certificate

as well as her choice of the New Hannah Stamp in rubber

OR her choice of any 2 digital stamps from Michelle's Scrapbooking and More!


Now, that's a great reason to pull out all of

your pattern papers with SPOTS & STRIPES....

I love to learn new things! (ask me in a few weeks how crocheting is going)

I challenged myself in this endeavor by attempting a tri-shutter-card.

(looks more complicated than it actually was, in fact this a.m. my girlies were perched in my window seat stamping and making tri-shutter cards for their teachers!)

start with 6" x 12" piece of paper

score from both short ends at 2" and 4"

rotate paper vertically cutting at the 4.5" mark on both sides

from the two score lines furthest apart

Having the dots under control, I plotted out my STRIPES...

I wanted to bring Polkadotasaurus to life via layering (and lots of coloring)

him and all his 'pieces parts'...

And now assembled utilizing "BOOST STICKERS" :)

(That is what Sierra asked for this a.m.--

it took me a few to realize she wanted 3-d foam pop dots

to give her image a BOOST off her card. How cute is that!?)

FLAT spots seemed boring, so I sprinkled fuzzy brads upon the green and blue SPOTS

got to love COLORFUL CHAOS....

I am such a fan of dimension- this style card truly delivers!

here is the stretched out view...a glimpse at the layers...

the very sparkly palm frans and petite brown pom-pons trunk...

slick dino parts

And a message for all of my artistic friends,

Thank you ladies at Stamp Something for letting me play with you!
Good Luck to all who enter their SPOTS & STRIPES!!
