...Featured Stamper #54

This is my submission for Sunday's Featured Stamper Challenge at SCS. The talented stamper honored was Betty (aka gbedwright). I simply adore her! She is always leaving the sweetest comments, and her creations are just awe-inspiring. I chose to CASE her card seen HERE with a few changes to make it my own. I changed the following elements: colors, punch shapes, designer papers, accessories. Even though several things were changed the fundamentals are the same and are quite obvious...and believe it or not...there is absolutely NO STAMPING!!! I started with a card base of Taken With Teal cardstock measuring 11 X 4-1/4, and when folded to open at the bottom measures 5-1/2 X 4-1/4. A piece of Regal Rose 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon was tied around the upper portion of the card and finished in a knot.

Pieces of the following Designer Series Papers were punched out using the 1-1/4" Circle Punch: Regal Rose Prints Pack (the upper left), and Petals & Paisleys (the remaining three). Basic Black cardstock was punched four times with the 1-3/8" Circle Punch to mat each designer paper circle. The designer papers are mounted to the black mats using Dimensionals, and the completed designer panels were attached to the cardbase using Dimensionals again. A Turquoise Rhinestone was attached to the upper left panel using Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue. The sentiment ("thank you") is from the Cherished Memories Rub-On Pack from Stampin' Up!, and it was placed onto the lower right panel using the rub-on stick that was included with the pack.

That's it for today......easy peasy! I hope to see you all tomorrow with a Technique Lovers/Inspiration Challenge combo (the operative word is "hope"). Until then....Hugs ~ Mercy
