Featured Stamper Challenge 166




I hope your weekend's going well and relaxing. The sun came out today, it has been hiding the past week. It was so lovely.
This is my card for today's Featured Stamper Challenge. Pat Smethers aka patsmethers is today's Featured Stamper. Congratulations Pat. You are such a sweetie.
I chose to case this card of Pat's.
Changes I made:
Made my card square
Embossed entire white panel
Paper pieced my image
Added a safety pin and sentiment
I used this wonderfully versatile new release BLOOMING WITH BLESSINGS from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS.
What I did: I stamped my umbrella, sentiment and butterflies first. I then stamped two umbrella tops only onto my DP and cut out. I adhered one with two-way glue to panel. Then I embossed the entire panel in my Cuttlebug. I applied dimensional glaze to the other umbrella top and let it dry then popped up with dimensionals.
RECIPE:
