Frantic Stamper is one of the only places you can find PaperArtsy products in the US. If you haven't seen their amazing stamps or wonderful Fresco chalk paints, you should check them out. We are sure you will like what you see. All the paints we used can be purchased now at Frantic Stamper. 

Thanks, Leandra!!

Our February Guest Designer is Alanna Moses. Alanna is also a Guest Designer at Frantic Stamper this month!

"Hi – I’m Alanna from Colorado and I am super excited to be guest designing for the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge for February. I am a mother of three fabulous kiddos and a wife. I work full-time as a CPA in a local firm doing audit work. When I have a free moment, I love to hang out with my family and spend some time in my craft room getting inky. I have been scrapbooking and making cards for about the last 13 years or so. Although now, I mostly just make cards as that allows me to start and finish a project in a short amount of time. I love to send cards to friends and family unexpectedly to brighten their day. I’d love it if you stopped my blog, Embellish Craft Love at www.damoses.blogspot.com."
Alanna created this beautiful mixed media card 
for our February "Glitter" Challenge. 

 And now for some inspiration from our Design Team...

  1. Hi ladies, I have a query for you. Do you count Stickles Glitter Glue as glitter? Or does it have to be loose glitter? Many thanks Karen x

    1. I just double checked Karen and Stickles definitely counts (which is good because I used a lot of it!) As Karen B. said below, if it's glittery, it's good. ;-) We're looking forward to seeing your creation!

    2. Thank you ladies!
      I also wanted to apologise whilst after I popped over to check the rules again. I have added the graphic to my posts so I apologise and will make sure I remember next month! Karen xx

  2. Hi Karen, I'm not on the DT but I would interpret the challenge as any kind of glitter. If you take a look at the DT ladies' blogs they have used all manner of glitter/sparkle medium options. Lots of different ideas :)

  3. Fabulous inspiration, love the DTs creations! Lots of Stickles :)
