If you get lost along the way, each stop will have a full list of links. One of the Design Team posts is the hop's Sensational Sunday Sweet Spot and a name will be drawn from that list of comments to be in a monthly drawing for a $20 Loves Rubberstamps Gift Voucher! We will draw the winner of the Voucher the 1st Sunday of each month from all the comments left on the design team blogs. Remember, you have until 8:00 pm CST Saturday to leave your comments.

I have joined the Loves Rubberstamps Design Team today for the Inspirational Sunday Blog Hop.  For your inspiration today, I have brought out my Game Controller Dies and Level Up stamps that go with this die.

Oh this was so fun to use!  I do have to say that I saw this paper on another crafter on Facebook and I was thinking it was perfect to use with this die.  I was wishing I had some of it.  I even looked up on line to see where I could get some, but then that passed by.   Well, I was going through my "boy" like papers and I actually had this paper pad! lol.   Oh I am so bad, you have no idea, lol.  

I had to borrow my hubby's controller because you know, it's never good unless it comes really close. I think I did pretty good. 

What do you think?  I had to handle the controller very carefully, lol, these toys are expensive too.  

I was so thrilled I had my spellbinders tool. 

SPELLBINDERS TOOL 'N ONE from Spellbinders

The dies are very intricate and I love having this tool around. 

New! DIE-NAMICS GAME CONTROLLER DIE SET from My Favorite Things MFT Stamps

I used the larger of the dies.  And I cut it out twice and popped one layer over the other using foam pads.  I also used pieces of foam pads for the joy sticks to give them some extra dimension.  

I hope you are enjoying your Sunday!  I have to work today, but I had some days off in the week to make this :)  I hope you  have a chance to play in our Current Challenge and that you take a minute to check out the New Items in the store. 

Now go check out what my fellow designers have made for you today.

I love your masculine card. Would you let me showcase your card and share a link to your blog post in what I call Manly Monday? It's a post on my blog where I share masculine cards (of all ages) as inspiration for my readers. If you are interested, please email me a direct link to your card so I can find it at grohcm at gmail dot com and I will add you to the lineup for the following Monday. I hope to hear from you.

Oh my, what a brave woman you are to have actually TOUCHED hubby's controller and used it as a model. Love the end results though. That paper is perfect for it and hey if all you ever do is buy two of the same sets of paper you are doing really good!
