SSHP07 Saturday Spotlight - Masterboard

Happy Weekend Everyone !!!

It's Saturday and that means it's time again for a SATURDAY SPOTLIGHT with HIDDEN POTENTIAL Challenge. Today we are creating a "Masterboard". Using your stamps (any!) to create your own "masterboard" or your own designer paper to create several cards/projects at once...good way to get several holiday cards done! If you are unfamiliar with this concept, Vicki has a tutorial for you over on her blog, found HERE.

Our sponsor today is Digital-Ink Co. and they have provided the images used by our Design Team's creations. Be sure to upload your entry on the Saturday Spotlight Challenge Blog ... Mr. Linky ... for your chance to win and choose THREE free sets from Digital Ink Co. The images provided today are by three of the nine creators they have on board. Today's creators are Jules Junk, Whimsy Design Studio and Stitchy Stamps. Please be sure to check out all the awesome digi images available at the Digital-Ink Co. Store. The "pumpkin" images I chose to use today are by Whimsy Design Studio. I paired them up with one of the first stamp sets I ever purchased from Stampin' Up (Sweet Seasons).

My masterboard was created using the oak leaf image from another SU stamp set ... "Country Blessings" and Kaleidocolor "Autumn Leaves" ink. My Whimsy Designs pumpkins were perfect with this cute fall image and I've used Prisma color markers/pencils for my coloring. A little dimensional tape was used to pop up the front pumpkin for added dimension.

Please be sure to visit my Diva sister's for additional inspiration on this theme!!
