Artsystamper *NEW* Challenge Blog

Hello my friends!
I have some exciting news today!
There is a *NEW* Challenge Blog for Artsystamper Digitals by Beverly Cole
and the fun starts TODAY!

The 1st and 3rd Monday of each month brings another Artsystamper Challenge
and today's theme is


You need not use Beverly's beautiful digitals to enter our challenge but the design teams projects will be showcasing her amazing work and I hope you'll be inspired to pop over to her Etsy shop and grab a few beauties for yourself!

I chose to use a couple different sets today.

First of all, from the 'Autumn's Gifts Stamp Set', I have used the precolored leaves to create my background paper for this fun Fall Gift Bag.  I have created my paper using Word10 and the .png precolored images.

I have a confession to make about the 'card' that is showcased on the front!
YEP ... it was originally the starts of an A6 CARD ... but then after I got rolling on the bag I thought that would be the perfect focus for the front of it.  So, I cut the card to make just a single panel and VIOLA!  Perfect focus for my gift bag!

To create the card I have used images from the 'Fruit Stand Stamp Set'.  The background is the 'sign' panel ... just expanded in size to create my entire background.  I have done some fussy cutting and popping up to add dimension. 

The winner of our challenges will receive the stamp set of their choice from TheArtsystamperShop.  Beverly Cole's selections offer stamps and sentiments in each set as well as pre-colored images for easy, last minute cards.  Why not take a moment and check out what she has in the store!!

I hope you will hop on over to the Artsystamper Digitals Challenge Blog and enter!
You will also see more inspiring designs from the Artsystamper Addicts DT ... so much fun!!

  8. I can't believe you made such a beautiful bag and card with the digitals. I wish I knew how to make use of them better. My only problem is that I will run out of printer ink a lot sooner as I only have a little supply with my cartridges but I sure admire your work.

  9. Love love LOVE this set. The background paper you created is spot on. Thanks so much!
    Hugs, Bev aka Artsystamper
