The Alley Way – Guest Designer

Hello Crafty Friends!  I’m back today as a guest designer for The Alley Way Stamps Blog.  I hope you’ve had a chance to stop by The Alley Way store to see the fun new stamps from the September Release.

Today’s cards feature The Alley Way stamp sets called, “Star of the Show,” “Kid N’ Caboodle,” and “Good Point.”

For my first card I took all the chevron arrows from “Good Point” and began stamping them with Simon Says Stamp white pigment ink.  Making sure that was completely dry, I then stamped over that and to the left with Hero Arts Shadow Inks.  I heat embossed the sentiment from “Star of the Show,” added sequins, and then applied stickles to the center for a little shine.


My second card features “Kid N’ Caboodle” and “Star of the Show”  This time I chose the Lightening Bug image to highlight.  I love that you can make so many fun cards from one set.   I made the background by white heat embossing the large stars image then inked with Distress Ink in blues and purples.  The moon is also inked with distress ink and faux stitched using a Copic Multi-liner. The “Thanks” sentiment is a die from Papertrey Ink and the hill border is a die from Lawn Fawn.  Using the sentiment from the set I made this into a great thank you card.


I hope you enjoyed the cards made for The Alley Way Stamps.  It was great fun to work with these super whimsical stamps and look forward to seeing some of your projects out there on social media.
