The Stretch'N'Bubbles blog will remain, with all our Design Team creations for you... just in case you need some inspiration with your new 564 images!
Alison, the owner/designer of Stretch'N'Bubbles, is embarking on a new adventure trail, into photopolymer stamps.... wow.... that's got to be exciting!
Along with a new adventure, comes new designs, and a new name... The Alley Way Stamps! If you pop over to the new blog, you'll see a few sneaky previews of some of the new sets, and you can get the party started with a chance to win a freebie!
So I decided that I should make a final SNB creation to post before the shop shuts... i thought it fitting to make a card to say that we'll miss SNB, and we'll miss Alison's designs (even though they'll keep coming under The Alley Way Stamps!). I chose the image Owl Tree.
Ingredients: Red, White Cardstock; Decorative Papers; Stardust Glitter Pens; Marvy Le Plume Markers; Rhinestones (Round Purple, Clear Hearts); White Pearls; Gold Organza Ribbon...
I sized the image and digi-wrote a sentiment.... then printed. After colouring with markers, and glitter pens, I mounted it to a layer of purple, and then fixed a faux bow. I fixed this to a layer of green (with wee white dotties!) and then laid it to rest on a deep red cardbase. I then added some purple rhinestones to the corners, and some wee white pearls to the owl's eyes (only because I ran out of black!). Still not satisfied, I took clear rhinestone hearts and filled the tree.
Although it is essentially a 'goodbye' card as it's the end of SNB, I still feel that it's a cheery message because Alison is stepping into something that is super-exciting, and still very creative! And because it is quite simple, and lighthearted with the bright colours on white background...
I have also entered this creation into the following challenges:
