Sir Stampalot challenges you !

Good Morning to you all! Hopefully you have ventured here from the Sir Stampalot Challenge - if not make sure you are signed up to follow and pop over there for the low down on how to win an AMAZING prize! Over the coming months we have some fantastic themes lined up for you, along with some fabulous prizes from Sir Stampalot. There are more details on the Challenge blog in the sidebar and on the post. Our first theme is:
Sir Stampalot have been so generous with the winners prize .......pinch yourself first because it's:
A Cricut Personal Electronic Cutter
PLUS a Pooh Font Cartridge
Good stuff, eh? Guaranteed to get you motivated! We will also select our Top 3 who will be able to display our special logo.
So here are two cards that will hopefully help to motivate you too.
My first card is an easel card. I made the background with acrylic dabbers and stamped over the top with some lavinia stamps. The bubbles are 3d paint and the starfish was made with air drying clay and painted with metallic paint. The corner flourish is a sizzix die.
My second card features the Fantasy tree by Penny Black and the Wizard by Non Sequitur. The Celtic border was embossed with kaleidoscope embossing powder. I made the background with Adirondack colour washes.  The highlights are made with a white gel pen and some icicle stickles.
For some fabulous ideas to help you on your way, please visit the Design Team's blogs - they are truly inspirational! Thanks for popping over. Now go and make a fantastic creation and join in the fun!
