5/18 A Couple of Featured Stampers!

I think I am finally caught up with the challenges issued by the Great Swaps Girls. The last challenge was featured stamper Lori Tecler. Lori, aka ltecler on SCS, has a great gallery that you can get to by clicking HERE. I was moved by this card HERE because I loved the colors and the design. I opted to use my Print Pattern inked up with White Craft ink to create my background on Basic Gray paper. Then, I pulled out my Live My Dream set. I inked it up in Basic Gray and stamped it on Soft Sky. I wanted to create a sort of halo around the flower and I attempted to do that by sponging on some Soft Sky. The brads working their way up the lower left are Vintage Brads in Pewter.

Supplies I used to create this card:

Stamps: Live Your Dream, Print Pattern
Paper: Soft Sky, Basic Gray, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Gray, Soft Sky, White Craft
Accessories: Vintage Brads, Basic Gray Taffeta Ribbon, Dimensionals, Photo Corner Punch

And, since it is Sunday, it is the Featured Stamper Challenge over at SCS. Today our Featured Stamper is known as dawnsing. She has a most amazing gallery that you can browse HERE. The card I picked to case is HERE. I needed quite a few grad cards and I wanted something super simple, but elegant, too. I eliminated a few of the layers, but I kept the layout the same. I wanted pattern paper with a big, bold, elegant look and I found some in my stash made by Me & My Big Ideas. It has a bit of a glossy look to it, too, making it even more "wow" IRL. I have a Innie and Outie stamp from My Sentiments Exactly. That means that you can stamp one part of the sentiment on the outside of your card and the other part of your sentiment on the inside of your card. This sentiment has a wonderful font. The inside part of the sentiment reads: "Wishing you much success as you pursue your dreams and goals."

Supplies for this card:

Stamps: My Sentiments Exactly
Paper: Basic Black, Me & My Big Ideas patterned paper
Ink: White Craft
Accessories: non SU Ribbon, White Embossing Powder, Heat Gun
