We hope to inspire you with some beautiful card projects as you hop along to each of the designer’s blogs! Today, we are featuring two stamp sets by Beth Silaika and Claire Brennan.

The first set we are featuring is Sophie Pig by Beth Silaika. Beth has created a super cute set second set with the sweetest images and matching sentiments to make the perfect card project to make the card recipient smile or feel better right away! The second and third sets we are featuring are by our new Illustrator Claire Brennan. The sets are Old Country Roses and Fine Feathers. With Claire’s Old Country Roses set, you can create beautiful layered stamped images that make the most beautiful and soft roses that look like you have picked them right out of your own rose garden. Claire’s Fine Feathers set is a collection of fun feathers that are a perfect focal image to create a message of inspiration, hope, thanks and more! We are so very lucky to have Claire’s illustrator talents on our team!

First up, Beth's Sophie Pig!




This is what I did for today:
This card is part heavy weight vellum and part corrugated cardstocks.  I think Sophie pig is too stinking cute and it has some of the cutest sentiments in this set!  They look like they are peeping over a fence here to me, lol! 



Next up is Claire's two sets that we are showcasing today (she has 5 released with us this month!! And I love every single one, just didnt have enough time, lol!) 
First up Old Country Roses:
And here is what I did with it:




I LOVE how this turned out!  The Two Step stamping or rather 3 on these just make a perfect look for those roses and leaves to me!  I had to blue in my head for some reason, kinda country feel maybe? 

Ok, next up is her set, Fine Feathers:


And I literally had to force myself to put this set down!  LOL! 




I used paints for the feathers here...Dylusions newest colors I believe.  LOVE the bright cheery colors here!  I had sequins to match too, lol!  The Happy Birthday is a negative of one I cut out  and used it too.  The bright pink corrugated cardstock I got at the Dollar Tree.  I got it to make some banners for a birthday party of a friends but of course, had to keep some for me too! Here are more with this set:

I used brown tones for this one and I love those feathers in brown too!  :D 

And this one...I had the chalks out so used those to do the bg for this white feather:




And one more....I do some art journaling from time to time, dont share it much but thought I would this one.  I used Claire's feathers and the new incentive stamps that we will be showcasing soon for you!
I used Gelli plates to do this...using paints, inks both and gesso and gel mediums...lol.  Just had a blast making it!  Ieven made that yoyo flower!  :D 

ok, that's all from me for now!  (more cards follow below the links!)

Wow you have been busy! What a great range of cards. Tough to choose a favorite .....

Cat: I really like how you lined up Sophie with all of her friends. So very cute. The blue roses are a wonderful alternative, since I am not a "pink girl." I see why the "Fine Feathers" set has already sold out, as a Design Team, youall have gone crazy for it.

Such inspired designs. Love the peeking piggies.
