Stamping, Stampingpam Style
As many of you know, Sunday (when I have the time) means the Featured Stamper Challenge over on SCS. This week is Stampingpam, a new gallery for me. There are so many stampers over there this challenge is a way to find new galleries courtesy of Bethie. Thanks Bethie!
Sometimes the card I choose I recreate very similarly, other times it starts that way and veers off; that's what happened today, I veered a bit from the original. I couldn't get the scallop and the ribbon placement from the original to feel right to me, so I omitted them, put the greeting in the lower right, and changing the stamp set and colors. I wanted the flower from SU!'s Stemming From to be in a vase like the inspiration card so I merely cut one from the patterned paper I was using and stamped the dots on it from one of the accessory stamps from the set. I've not used the Photo Corner punch in forever, but I like how it looks here, I've added a mini brad on the inside corner as it felt a bit nekkid.
8 more cards for my stash and another piece of patterned paper used up, thanks for looking!
