Shirley’s Saturday Spotlights #131 – Anything Goes

Please stroll down the catwalk or click HERE for our current Challenge #133 – Springtime

A huge hi from Shirley … if you have subscribed to Shirley’s blog and you are wondering why you haven’t received updates from her it’s because she has changed her website address so please hop on over to here to resubscribe.

Now to the matter in hand she is showcasing the spotlights for her Anything Goes Challenge theme and the reasons why.

Shirley here, firstly I want to say a big thank you to everyone who entered, it was really tough to make a decision from all your lovely entries but I finally picked the following – in no particular order …

#4 – Carole

My first pick Carole has been chosen because even though she loved stamping she admits her stamping wasn’t good.
By getting a new Stamping platform for Christmas it opened up a whole new world for her.
Look at the amazing card she has created, don’t you just love that stamping, well done Carole.

 #5 – Aimslee

Loving this embossed stamped image from Aimslee with such a gorgeous colour scheme.

#14 – Angela

Great piece of artwork from Angela with loads of yummy background stamping especially the faux stitching around the edges.
The stamped and then die cut quote makes such a statement in the middle. Love it.

Once again, thank you to all who took part in this challenge and to the Fashion Stampettes for their hard work and inspiration. 

Challenge #133 – Springtime

We have some sad news today but also some happy.

Firstly we are saying goodbye to a very dear team member Dani who has decided to step down.  She is going to be sadly missed but we wish her well in the future with her amazing and beautiful work.

Now for the good news, we are welcoming another fabulous crafter who will be joining our design team and her name is Hanne from Hanne’s Card Room.

I think some of you may remember Hanne as being our first Guest Designer of the year.

In her own words here is a little info about when she first started crafting:

Hi, my name is Hanne and I live with my husband in Germany.  I first started paper crafting in 2009 but in the last three years have found that my passion is for stamping and inking more and more.

I hope you all enjoy my very first make for FSC.

We are a stamping challenge so we do need to see rubber/acrylic stamping on your project.

To qualify for the winner’s prize we especially need to see that the stamping is the focal point on the project and that the stamping follows the format of the theme.


… but you may use digi downloads for enhancement of your projects … please remember that the main focal point must be STAMPING.

The winner of each challenge will receive a very generous stamp prize from our sponsor Ink Art Designs.

Please pop back on Tuesday to see who the winner is for Challenge #132 – ‘One For The Girls’ and for the top 3 plus the spotlights on Saturday.


Well it might not be Spring outside but it certainly is here at FSC.

Yvonne starts the new challenge theme and what better way to start than a gorgeous stamped image of a little girl holding a posy full of flowers and a windmill in the background, just perfect.

I can hear all the DT’s singing ‘Tulips From Amsterdam’.


Catwalk Inspiration Time

Our Fashion Stampettes are the most talented ladies around, each adding their own creativity, style and flare to capture the essence of the themes every month.
They would love it if you popped over to read how they’ve come up with their gorgeous pieces. 

Spring is strutting onto the catwalk this month, with makes from all our lovely ladies that are so completely different … because that’s just what the Design Team do.

So let’s take that catwalk stroll to see each of their stunning makes starting with Dot’s fabulous card.

She has made it all about the birds which is definitely what Spring is all about.
