Animals

Hi everyone, Doris here with our new challenge for the week
Animals
We want to see your projects with
all kinds of animals, from the barn to the sea!

First, a great big THANK YOU to
our very generous sponsor
QKR Stampede  
for gifting some amazing images to our
design team AND 3 digi images to our winner!


Do you have a sense of humor? Are you looking for a cute stamp? Then, we are the company for you! QKR Stampede is the somewhat cute somewhat quirky rubber and digital stamp company. We showcase the artwork of Ken Herrod, who had a unique, somewhat quirky style with lots of humor and character. You are sure to get a chuckle out of our stamps! We have been offering our unique stamps and supplies to the craft industry for over 15 years. At QKR Stampede our images are available as un-mounted, natural red rubber stamps OR as digital stamps! If QKR Stampede Stamps aren't exactly what you are looking for, don’t miss out on the sister companies: Eureka Stamps, Biblical Impressions Rubber Stamps, or the newest addition; Alluring Impressions.

Here are some fabulous projects from our 
Design Team

Black, White and Another Color

Hello everyone!
Welcome back for a fun and inspiring almost month long challenge.

Our theme for this challenge is
Black, White and Another Color
Create a project using the colors black and white and add a third color of choice.
Every style is welcomed as long as you follow thrules.
Our generous sponsor for this challenge is
The fabulous prize is winners choice of 3 single digi stamps!

Hello! My name is Sarah though I am commonly known by friends and online as Star (thus came Star Stampz!) My nick name derived back from the early days when I first began signing my artwork as Stargirl (and have done so ever since.)

Art has had a big influence on my life and who I am. Though I have dabbled in many styles and types discovering Japanese anime and it's art style is what renewed my vigor to draw. It helps that I'm also a complete geek ~ anime, Japanese culture, books, writing, fantasy, cartoons, music, musicals, etc.

I am not very crafty with paper scrapbooking or putting together beautiful cards and creations but when I discovered the world of digital stamping I was fascinated what others could do with the same art stamp. I have also always been fond of inking pen drawings in my sketchbooks. I have focused a lot on my digital art and other freelance projects but digital stamps is that perfect niche for being creative and getting back line art drawings. I always look forward to see what creations others have turned my stamps into.

Here are the inspiring creations of our awesome Design Team:


Isobel - Spring Rain

Carole - Maiko in Spring

Sharon

Sherry from Loose Stitches and Unraveled Threads


Hi, I'm Sherry, I was born in Kentucky and now live in Washington. I'm a wife, mother and grandmother. I have enjoyed all types of arts and crafts ever since I can remember. Now I have found that I really enjoy making cards by hand and have began working with mixed media. I am so very excited to be a Guest Designer for Crafting by Designs.
