Artist of the Week at SPS

Hi all! I am posting today with an inspiration piece from Sweet Pea Stamps (SPS).

We, the SPS Design Team, have started a new “Artist of the Week” venture that will happen one week out of every month. Our artist for this month is Norma J. Burnell and her Fairy Tangles rubber stamps. My inspiration piece is created with the beautiful rubber stamp “Sapphire.” I was itching to touch my Copics to this tangled fairy.

Copics used:
E000, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19, 31, 34,
E35, 37, 39, 42, 43, 44, 47, 49
G40, 82, 85, 94, 99
R02, 05, 08, 20
V09, 12, 15

After trimming Sapphire, I distressed the edges with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and then layered with Stampin’ Up!’s Concord Crush and Kraft cardstock. The designer paper is from my stash, as are the nail heads. That delicious die is SCACD’s Dandelion Knoll Corner. I love that die, well, really I LOVE all my dies! You can never have enough dies or stamps, rubber or digital!

This week SPS is reducing the price of Norma’s Fairy TanglesArt Collection by 15%, which is a steal! SPS’s red rubber stamps are the best on the market. Before any are shipped, Lynette, Owner of SPS, makes sure that your stamp gives you the cleanest and most precise stamped image.

Sapphire will be entered in the following challenges:
Color Me Creative - Anything Goes
Cuttlebug Mania -Anything Goes, Die Cuts
Party Time Tuesdays - Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure and visit the SPS DesignTeam’s blog every day for more inspiration from the talented SPS Design Team. If you have any questions, don't hesitate contacting me.

Gorgeous card Aletha! Norma's images are all so stunning! I totally agree that one can never have enough when it comes to stamps & dies (& big weakness) but my husband isn't of a like mind. LOL The other day I was going into Michael's & his comment was "What more could you possibly need from there?" Silly man, he just doesn't understand!!
Hugs, Renee
