Stamp Fairy Challenge - Lace and Hearts

Happy Monday everyone! It's the beginning of the work week and the beginning of a new challenge at StampFairy. This week we're calling for "Lace and Hearts" but we have a twist for you - no red or pink! Yep, we're going with non-traditional Valentine colors this week. Which explains my brown and green color scheme doesn't it?!!  We sure would love to have you join the StampFairy challenge this week!

For my challenge card I used the adorable "Lenny Love" that you can find in the StampFairy Shop. I paper-pieced the heart he's holding from the collection of K&Company papers "Life's Journey" that I used in all the elements of this card. A few other hearts and the lace ribbon and bow complete my challenge elements.

For the card layout, I used this sketch (SSS94) from The Sweet Stop. I'm entering this card in their sketch challenge this week.  This is the first time I'm playing in The Sweet Stop challenge and I welcome their design team to my blog!

Now for the latest releases the past week at StampFairy. Gerda, the owner, has created the most wonderful digi papers and they're now available in the StampFairy Shop. There are six collections with 10 digi paper designs in each and they're going for $2.50, a special introductory price.

New Release! Digi Papers now available at StampFairy!
And if that isn't enough, in the past week the following new digi stamps were released. I present to you Linda Fairy....

And for you bunny lovers, a new character introduction is in order... Clementine makes her debut just in time for Valentines Day....

These new digi stamp collections are adorable! There's so much going on at StampFairy, you have to check in at Gerda's blog frequently to keep up with her releases! You can visit her here at StampFairy World.

Now hopefully you're motivated to create a card or project with StampFairy images and play along in our challenge this week. We have changed the challenge rules a bit and now only allow StampFairy images in the challenges. But not to worry as there are many freebies offered at the StampFairy Shop. Enter our challenge and you could win free images - first place wins 3 images, second place wins 2 images and third place earns 1 image. What could be better than that?!

Also please be sure to visit the design team blogs and see their challenge cards and how they've used these new digi papers and Linda Fairy and Clementine Love images in their creations. You'll be inspired by their talent for sure. That's it for this long post... thanks for stopping by!
