Sensational Sunday Inspirations + Blog Candy

Hi Stampers!

Welcome to our Sensational Sunday Inspirations post!

Hope you are all had a wonderful Christmas! This week our Sept - Dec Design Team Term is coming to an end and with that we will be saying good-bye to Katie Skiff. We are super sad to see her leave the team but I know we will be seeing her in blog land and she will be starting some new adventures with the New Year so we wish her lots of luck with that! She did such an amazing job as one of our designers, her projects were always amazing so I just wanted to say THANK YOU SO MUCH KATIE! We will miss you!

When the new term starts...we will be welcoming two of our December Guest designers as regular Design Team Members! We want to welcome Dangina Martinez and Athina Emory to the team and they will be sharing their weekly creations each and every Sunday starting next week! I know that they will both do absolutely amazing because their guest designer projects have been STUNNING each week!! I am so super excited for them to join our team!

Now on to today's blast of inspiration from our talented Design Team! Here we go....

Marcy Dangcil
                                                              Tuxedo Black-Memento 
                                                                   Best Glue Ever
                                                  Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Frayed Burlap
                                                Spellbinders Nestibilities -  Beaded Circles
Marcy did such a gorgeous job coloring this image! It is absolutely stunning! I love the beautiful flower accents and the pretty colors in the designer paper! Check out that corrugated background layer too...very cool! I love that look!

Shanna Shands
Kraftin Kimmie Stamps - Moonlight Whispers Madeline
Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Walnut Stain
                                                           Bo Bunny Designer Papers

This is so adorable! I love easel cards and I love the ribbons Shanna used as the easel stopper!
 Shanna did a beautiful job coloring her image to match those gorgeous Holiday papers too!

Kelli Hull
Impression Obsession - Love Chandelier
Echo Park Paper pack - Love Story (This is scheduled for delivery Thursday!)
This is such a cute and fun image for Valentine's Day! I love the lacy ribbon trims that Kelli chose for her card and those beautiful colors in the paper! Kelli did a beautiful job coloring the image to match the papers too!

Katie Skiff
I love Katie's style of having a clean and simple design that packs a huge wow in it and comes out looking so elegant. This is so pretty and I love the white embossing on the black cardstock, that turned out amazing! I love how Katie stitched the top banner down to add a little extra texture. This is a simply gorgeous design!

Lydia Walker
Kraftin Kimmie Stamps - Emilie's Etchings Canine Capers 2
Lawn Fawn Stamps - Sally's ABCs
This card completely cracked me up when I saw Lydia's sentiment! This is too cute and that little wiener dog is hilarious! I love how Lydia used the sign from the Paper Smooches set for part of the sentiment! I think Lydia is becoming quite the expert colorist with her spectrums too! Love the shading on the dog! And I SWEAR that I will get the new Lawn Fawn stamps that have arrived in the store TODAY... including the Sally's ABCs that Lydia is AMAZING at using! I can never get my letters so straight using an alphabet set! AWESOME JOB!!
If you have a along in this week's Loves Rubberstamps Challenge - it is a New year's celebrations theme and you could be the lucky winner of a $50 gift voucher to the store PLUS get your choice of TWO Saturated Canary Digi stamps! You have until tomorrow night at 9:00 pm CST to get your entry in!

 I hope you enjoyed today's post! Our design team did AWESOME as always :)

Happy Stampin All!
