Guest Designer for Canadian Nickel Scrap'n

Hi! My name is Amber and my blog is Pixichick Papercrafts. Who am I? I'm a crazy crafter who has taken over an entire room in my house with crafting! At least my hubby doesn't mind because he knows were to find me. I love to make cards, decorations, and scrapbook pages for myself and all of my friends. Besides crafting I am a do-it-yourself home improvement nut. I'm currently working on re-texturing all of the ceilings in my house.

What am I up to? Well, I'm the design team coordinator for Sweet Stamping Treats, and I'm on the design team for Inspired Stamps, but stamping isn't even my real passion. I love my Cricut! Thanks to tons of sales and thrifty shopping I've accumulated over 60 cartridges. The hard part is staying within my budget.

What's new and exciting with me? Well, Sweet Stamping Treats will have a new design team starting in October, and I'm in a ton of blog hops coming up, including a back to school blog hop on the 23rd, and a Great Pumpkin Blog hop on October 31.

But for my project today I decided to go back to basics. I love making simple, versatile cards that can be used for any occasion. This is my fashonista card:

This card is perfect to give to any fashioista friend for a birthday, thank you, congratulations, or even a bridal shower.

I used paper from Chatter Box's Artsy.licious line because it has all kinds of sparkle from glitter to foil. The dress is from the Tie the Knot cartridge, and it's actually one of the accessory cuts for this dress, not the main image. The white base is a stamp image from the Base Camp cartridge, and the dress images are cut out inside of it. Then I mounted the different colors of paper to the back of the stamp so that these are showing through, not glued on top.

I hope you like my project, and Happy Crafting!
