New DT Member for Ginger Snap Scraps!

Guess what, guys?

Ginger Snap Scraps

You're looking at the newest DT member for Ginger Snap Scraps! :)

About a month ago, I made a purchase in the Ginger Snap Store and was contacted by owner, Cori.  I thought that part of my order was out of stock and she was emailing me to let me know.  I was floored when she told me she saw my blog and wanted to ask me if I would apply for her design team!  What an honor! Of course I said yes and came up with two cards for my application:

This one actually did double duty.  My aunt needed a card for a baby shower she was attending.  The theme was whales and she wanted the baby's name on it too.  I wanted to make something on the Cricut for my application. Whale from Create a Critter, welded in my Gypsy.  Sponged with SU ink.

I made a computer generated sentiment and punched it out with SU punches and adorned it with SU satin ribbon.  

I thought it would be amusing to put the baby on the whale's "splash!" The baby is cut from Sugar and Spice cartridge.  I used a cute Peachy Keen face instead of the cut out face.  Colored the pacifier with Copics.  SU pearls act as buttons.  I added Glossy Accents to the splash to make it more durable.

Entering this card into the following challenges:

Die Cuttin' Divas - Anything Goes
Krafy Girls - Get in Shape
Creative Card Crew - On the Beach/Under the Sea
Anything Goes Challenges - Let's Not Be Square
Crafting For All Seasons - Splash Me
Little Scrap Pieces - Use an Animal
The Stamp Man - Anything Goes Celebration

I also wanted to make a Copic card for my application.  I got this great digi by Robyn's Fetish for winning a challenge a couple of months ago and finally used it.  It's called George Washington.  Inked up with Copics.  Cardstock, paper, stamps, emboss powder, ink, and brads are all SU.

Entering this in the following challenges:
One Stitch at a Time - Use a Digi
My Mum's Craft Shop - Ice Cream Color Combos (Mint Chip)
Cute Card Thursday - So Distressing
The Poodles Parlour - Anything Goes

Wheeee!  I'm so honored that Cori asked me to be apart of her design team.  I can't wait for the first project! :)
