SCS Featured Stamper

This week's featured stamper (FS) is Joanne (sleepyinseattle). I am very familiar with Joanne's work - she participates in a lot of challenges and is always there commenting on our cards. She does every style card and 3D project very well and it was really hard to pick a card to case. So I ended up casing two cards! The first card I cased is this one. The colors of her flowers just reminded me of my all time favorite Basic Grey paper Stella Ruby. So I got out my favorite pattern from that paper pack and made this first card. This is a little vintage or shabby for me but I like it. The lace is from Making Memories and I actually crocheted the flower. I used a new Fiskars border punch called Sunburst and nested a few borders. I finished it off with a pearl brad.

The second card that I cased also uses some Basic Grey paper - Scarlet Letter. I didn't want to change too much from Joanne's original card because I love hers and why mess with success? So I kept the layout and the patterned papers and changed the image and sentiment and placed rhinestones on the sentiment panel instead of brads on the background. I colored directly on the butterfly image with SU! markers then stamped it.

Thanks for coming by!
