Make Amazing Design Team / Richard Garay

Hey sweet friends! Some days ago you were so kind to let me share my excitement about becoming a member of the Richard Garay Make Amazing Design Team. Today I would like to tell you a bit more about this new adventure.

I am sure you will recognize a lot of the sweet faces in this picture! And I am quite sure you haven't heard so much about Richard himself. I have to admit that I didn't either before I got this amazing opportunity. But that is not because Richard is new to this industry!! No, in fact, he has been in the business for over 15 years and has tons of experience. And he is amazingly creative! (haha, you will read the word "AMAZING" more often today…). Richard is president of Fun Stampers Journey, a direct sales company and THE place for all your crafty needs (check out everything about it here)! In addition, he has already designed a line for Spellbinders called Cele'brations (find it here - amazing!). And now, Richard is starting launching his own retail lines, too!! This is so exciting and I can't wait to start working with them.
I love Richard's videos and his projects are so fun! I wanted to share a sample of his, and had a difficult time choosing just one. Look at this:

So beautiful, isn't it? Be sure to check his video about how to create this project. You will find Richard's Blog here, it is so worth browsing through! Yes, you guessed it, it is amazing :)

Ok, now you know a bit more about what is coming up the next weeks. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. Thanks for stopping by today!!

Sparkle & Shine Challenge: Watercolor Dots

*second post of the day. for the winnie & walter rerun, please go here*

Hello everybody! It's time for a new Sparkle & Shine Challenge. This time we had this pretty image to work with:

So many possibilities, don't you think? I love the watercolors and here is what I came up with:

I created the stripes on a panel of watercolor paper, using a wet brush to pick up color from Derwent Inktense Pencils and simply painting a stripe of every color, creating a rainbow. Then I trimmed the panel, layered it with a strip of black card stock and adhered it to my card base. I stamped and colored the cute panda, cut it out and adhered it with foam tape. Then I die-cut the word from card stock and fun foam and adhered it, too. Finally I added matching sequins.

I hope you'll join us this time for your chance to win a gift card to Pretty Pink Posh!

Thanks for stopping by!
