So let's find out what the Design Team have made this month!...

Corry Hey there crafters.   This time I have made a card with the beautiful flower stamp pretty perfect...For the background I used distress inks and different stamps....At first I stamped the flower on the card.  I blended the leaves with chlorine bleach. After that, I stamped the flower again - I have colored the flowers and butterflies and then I cut it out and glued them on the card. Finally, I placed some glitter on the flower and butterflies...

Terry: Hi there, This time I made a couple of Art Journal Pages, just love to play around with stamps on the background, started with Distress inks, after that I played with all kinds of smaller stamps, from the Honey Daisy, Stampsoup Lemonade Fizz, Texture Gallore, Lavender Tea, Making Faces, Papillon. Bella Fleur, Regal Peacock and Funky Alphabet Stampset, stamped the girls on both pages and colored them with pencils and with inks. With a stencil I placed the swirls and used Modelling Paste for it and mixed orange acrylic paint in with it. And last but not least I stamped some sentiments on the art journal pages.

Irmelin: Hi everyone. Today I'm sharing a canvas I've made with one of the many digital stamps that are in the store. The one I chose was from the Stick & Bones collection. I colored this one with Copic Sketch. The colored image I glued to one canvas and started to add elements. I added fiberglass tape, wood bits from the canvas, string, and branches. I also made a mixture of art stones and glue that I adhered to the canvas. I colored the canvas with ink sprays and decorated with flowers. Finally, I added a title. Hope you will enjoy my project this month!

Jane – I love my art journals at the moment and played with my A6 version today. I used glitter pens and watercolours to create a crazy coloured background and added lots of lovely Stamp Soup stamps for interest. 
The focal point is one of the stunning Oddella digis coloured with pencils.

Here's the products the team used...
