So excited to share my news with all of you!!!!

This is my first creation for Crafts and Me.  Yes I am now on the Crafts and Me Design Team and I am beyond excited.  I love Crafts and Me's own line of stamps.  I used one of the New Stamps line she started caring last month.  Do you recognize the artist of this stamp??
It's Jasmine Becket-Griffith!!!! When I first saw these AWESOME stamps being previewed on the Crafts and Me Blog by the DT I was so excited I was dancing in my chair and smiling from ear to ear.  I have always wanted to see Jasmine Becket-Griffith's artwork turned into stamps so I could color them.  As I have been a HUGE fan of Jasmine's artwork for a long time now.
I used  her Make a Wish stamp that you can purchase for your HERE at Crafts and Me UK Store.

Here is a close-up.
I absolutely LOVE this image.  Doesn't she have the cutest and sweetest little face and eyes?  I have just falling in love with this stamps and I can't wait till the next release of more of her images.

Supply List for my "Make A Wish card.
DCWV DP, Mohawk Color Copy Brilliant White 100lb Cover CS, Memento Tuxedo Ink, Spellbinder labels and Pendant Dies, Blue Felt puffy Butterflies, Prima Jewels, Glittery Silver chipboard Flourishes, Martha Stewart Punch around the page punches, ribbon, Blue and White DCWV textured CS, Foam Tape for dimension and she was colored with Copics.

I have a second card to share with you.  I had a hard time getting a decent pic of this card.  If you look closely I have used an Acetate Picture frame/matting under my image and frame, which kept catching the light glare from my lamp.
It also made her skin look a lot lighter than it really is. For this card I used another Jasmine Becket-Griffith image/stamp called "Skulls and Stars".

Here is the best close up image of her I could get.
I used some DCWV DP from the La Creme' paperstack, Black and light gray CS, Acetate photo mat/frame, Recollections black chipboard Frame sanded and then distressing inks ran over it, little skulls apoxy sticker embellishments, brushed nickel brads and ColorBok black flourishes, the star embellishment is a Jewery making Charm, and Foam tape to pop image up.
