Guest Designer Spot

Today I have a guest designer spot on Penny's Paper - Crafty Challenge blog. I was lucky enough to be picked to be the featured artist last month and, from now on, the featured artist is being given the opportunity to be a guest designer the following month.
The challenge today is Anything Goes and is being sponsored by Whimsy Stamps, I used the Loving Ewe stamp by Meljen, coloured digitally in photoshop and papers from the Clipart Fairy to make a pop up box. The sentiment was a freebie from Meljen and the arch of hearts was made using a Wizard,- hearts of love die (don't think you can get this any longer), flower and gems are from stash, then because I loved the image so much, and also to show the versatility of digi stamps, I made a second card. This time I enlarged the image to make an A5 card, scored and folded it, then cut around both layers at once, printed the image out a couple more times and layered up the design. I was really pleased with the way they both turned out. Hope you like them.

The whole thing folds flat for posting.

And the second card -

The quality of the image is just as good at the larger size as the smaller, and you can't do this with rubber stamps!

I am going to enter the pop up box card in the following challenges:

Papercrafting Journey - Let's get digital
Marks Finest papers - Hearts
Phindy's place - Valentine or for a loved one
Lexi's creations - Say it with Love
Delicious Doodles- use 3 colours - Red, White, Black
Secret Crafter Saturday challenge - With Love
Southern Girls - Totally Loved Up

and finally  Meljens Designs - Round or square, hope the box counts as it is square when popped up, with a semi-circle (circle!?!?!?!) of hearts
