Can you feel it? The cooler nights, a crisper morning air and just an all round shift that comes with the Season's changing. It is wonderful living in a State that does have defined Seasons - I grew up in South Africa and it seems in our part of the country we had Winter and Summer only. Leaves have started to change which is always something to look forward to since one of the most favorite pastimes for our family is to visit the Rocky Mountains and see the changing Aspen. Fall also makes me more adventurous in the kitchen and with my crafting - basically the change from Summer to Winter brings out the homebody in me :) So it was with great enthusiasm that I sat down and played with Starving Artistamps latest sets: Backlit Blooms. These HUGE stamp sets (about 5.75" tall) can be used as is - to make super jumbo sized cards or like I did, a framed home decor project. You can use part of the stamp images to create smaller or standard cards. Our Design Team had fun playing with their samples. Here are their interpretations of the sketch using Starving Artistamps
Angie used Backlit Bloom's Holly Set for this festive card
Courtney played with Backlit Bloom's Orchid to make this serene card

This week we are very pleased to welcome Sherry Wright as our guest designer. Sherry's stunning card from Laura's Sketch 59 won her Card of the Week and this coveted spot on our team. For her beautiful card Sherry worked with Backlit Bloom's Dogwood set which comes with the flowers and two sentiments. You can see more of Sherry's amazing talent on her fantastically inspiring blog:
