Featured Stamper Challenge

Every Sunday over on Splitcoaststampers (SCS), there is a Featured Stamper Challenge. Where one lucky SCS stamper is chosen to be honored that week and the rest of us visit their gallery and choose one of their cards to case. What fun ... and a good way to take the time and visit other crafters galleries.

Today's Featured Stamper is Joanne (SleepyinSeattle). Joanne has a wonderful gallery chocked full of awesome creations and projects! THIS IS THE CARD that I chose to case today. I kept her basic layout but pretty much changed everything else.

Details for this card:

Stamps: Inkadinkado, Serendipity, Verses Rubber Stamps (inside), Penny Black (inside), AMuse (inside)

Papers: Pink Pirouette, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Basic Grey (sugared) dp

Inks: Versafine black, Pink Pirouette (inside)

Accessories: Spellbinder Nestabilities (ovals & scallop ovals), Basic Grey half pearls, Bucket O'Buttons, Prima flowers, SU scallop border punch, Offray grosgrain ribbon, SU watercolor pencils and blender pen, dimensional tape

For the inside of my card I've used a scrap piece of the Basic Grey sugared designer paper which I've punched with the SU scallop border punch to embellish the top. I've stamped the Penny Black butterflies in Versamark and again in Pink Pirouette before stamping the Verses Rubber Stamp sentiment on top with Versafine black ink. The little happy birthday sentiment is by AMuse.


On a different note:
Through out my DH's cancer journey and stem cell transplant over this past year, you folks have helped to keep my mind occupied and given me so much support! Several have asked how my husband is doing these days since I've not been posting an update every whipstitch. Well, even though he's still on that long road to recovery, we were thrilled last week to hear the results of his latest PetCT Scan --- ALL CLEAR ... NO SIGNS OF CANCER!!! Praise God!! Thank you again for all your prayers and support! God Bless You!!
