Featured Stamper #119


Sweet Joan Ervin is the Featured Stamper today at Splitcoaststampers: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=437613. Yay Joan. I am so happy. Joan was one of the first people to befriend me on SCS and answer my questions. And now I am on the Clear Dollar Stamps Design Team with her. Whoo-hoo. Your gallery is so inspirational Joan.

This is the card I chose of Joan's to case:http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1239021?cat=500&ppuser=28771

I chose to make my card a Masculine Birthday card with the colors. I used the BIGGEST WISHES set from Clear Dollar Stamps:http://www.newcleardollarstamps.com/servlet/StoreFront.

The sentiment by the cake I stamped in Basic Gray on paper off to the side then stamped on my card for a light look. It does not show up that great in the photo. Also was does not show up well is the black mat on my happy birthday tag is cut from the ouside edge to the center all the way around. I then pulled up everyother tap and it looks like a bottle cap. Instead of trying to cut around the flame I punched out a 3/4" circle from the image on another piece of a paper, colored it and adhered onto the card with dimensionals. All these details look better IRL. Thank you for visiting.

PS I told you I would be using my finds from the stamp festival yesterday on future creations. These eyelets, the circles with the silver brads in the middle are one of my finds.
