HSS Guest Designer

I was asked by the ladies at the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge blog to be a guest designer for this week's challenge.  How exciting!  Each Tuesday they post a new challenge and I would encourage you to play today along each week.  Most weeks, I find the time to participate in this challenge.Head over to the blog for more details.  Today's challenge is a sketch challenge:  

For my card, I used a Miss Anya stamp from The Greeting Farm.  I created the layout by using coordinating patterned papers from Graphic 45.  The background paper and ribbon are So Saffron from Stampin Up.  I used my sewing machine to sew around some of the edges of the papers for added texture and interest.  I placed Miss Anya to look as though she is sitting on the "ledge."  I added a "sittin' pretty" sentiment from Mark's Finest Papers, which fits well with Miss Anya.  I really enjoyed creating this card for the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge blog.   


  1. Claudine, this is such a lovely card. Anya looks very elegant sitting there not at all cute like she usually looks. A really fun card.

  2. Claudine,
    Once again WOW! This card is just so fun. I love the prints, the stitching gives it a fabric fee,l and the Anya image is flawless. Thank you so much for designing for this week's challenge.

  3. What a darling image, and fabulous dp combined. Great job, Claudine!
