Divas by Design - Rubbert Stamps Only

Hello.... I hope you are all well today.... if not, then I'm sending big hugs and hope you feel better very soon! it's Team A's turn over at 

and our theme for this week is...

'Use Rubber Stamps Only'

I've chosen one of my favourite stamps... a lovely 'Snow Angel' from Crafts and Me.... by Jasmine Becket-Griffith... I love that she looks so nonchalant... :-) and I've teamed her up with my favourite Prima Papers - 'Rosarian'. I made a slightly similar card a couple of years back using both the Snow Angel and the Rosarian Papers... just in case you think it looks familiar!!
I actually had to order another 'Rosarian Pad' before I could use these papers... I love them SO much!! I now have a brand new pad to stroke and admire - my precious!!! Lol

Image: Crafts and Me - 'Snow Angel' by Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Papers: Prima - 'Rosarian'
Flower: Bo Bunny
Die: Sixxiz Framelit Heart - Set of 6
Epoxy Heart Topper ... a gift from my lovely daughter!
Dewdrops from Stash

I've also added some little dewdrops but they don't show up very well in the photos... also I was gonna retake some photos of image to show the sparkle on her dress... but totally forgot!! you can see it a little bit in the photo above, bottom left of her dress...

I've coloured her with Copics and Promarkers for Skin...
Star Dust Stickles added on the dress

We are sponsored by another of my favourite shops... the wonderful Sir Stampalot!!!

I hope you can pop on over to our main blog at Divas by Design and see the rest of the team's gorgeous creations!!! :-))

Thank you all for your lovely comments! I saw the doctor on Monday and she gave me some antibiotics... thankfully since Tuesday midday I've not had any more noise in my ear!! Yay! such a relief... just need to get rid of this achy, tired feeling and headache now... so will rest and have lots of hot drinks. Don't feel like doing much... but might do some colouring later!  ;-))
Will catch up with you soon!
Take Care
Love and hugs

Hi Sue, am so glad you are feeling better.

Gorgeous card - the image is beautiful and you've coloured it wonderfully.


Judith said...

hi Sue - I just love that image so "defiant" looking! - those papers are fab too, I think we must all be guilty of favourite paper syndrome! I have 2 or 3 pads that I obsessively just can't be without - others have never seen the light of day lol. I'm still making an attempt to keep up with my rubber stamping goal for this year - so might manage to squeeze a card into this challenge - have a fab week hugs Judith xx
