...Featured Stamper #42 ~ TexasGrammy

This is my submission for today's Featured Stamper Challenge at SCS. Beverly G. (TexasGrammy) was the lucky lady whose artwork was recognized, so I chose one of her cards from her gallery to CASE (Copy And Share with Everyone). I chose the card seen HERE. I had to change two or more things in order to participate in the challenge, so here's what I changed: the designer paper, the layout, and the colors. I think her original idea is still there, but I tweaked it to fit my style.

I started with a card base of Night of Navy cardstock measuring 11" X 5-1/2" to make a 5-1/2" square card. The next layer is Holiday Harmony Designer Paper (from the Holiday Mini Catalog) stamped with the flourish from the set Baroque Motifs in Night of Navy ink, and it measures 5-3/8" square. The next panel up is made of the same designer paper that measures 5-1/2" X 2-1/2", and is matted with navy cardstock measuring 5-1/2" X 2-5/8". I used Pearl Crystal Stickers in the four corners of the panel to add some dimension. The focal panel, both the flourish and the sentiment, are from the set Carte Postale. They are stamped in navy ink onto River Rock cardstock that measures 3-1/2" X 2", then matted onto more navy cardstock measuring 3-5/8" X 2-1/8". Each layer is then attached to the other using SNAIL Adhesive. The card is finished off with some navy ribbon (that is both silk and organdy) tied above the focal panels.

That's it for today, and tomorrow is the Technique Lovers Challenge. I haven't really been inspired the past couple of weeks by the techniques showcased, but maybe tomorrow's will be a different story. If I create anything I will post it for you, but if I don't make anything I am sure that I will have something for Tuesday's Color Challenge! Thanks for stopping by, and until next time..............Hugs ~ Mercy
