SCS FEATURED STAMPER CHALLENGE FS33 STAROFMAY

Today's Featured Stamper (FS33) on SCS is Kristina Werner, aka starofmay on SCS. Kristina's gallery and blog, KWERNERDESIGNBLOG are AMAZING! I just love Kristina's clean, crisp stamping style! Wish I had all day to case her work! I especially like Kristina's photography skills! Her blog is so professional looking, and her photography showcases her artwork beautifully!

I cased two of Kristina's cards. See her original of this card HERE.

To achieve the three "windows" in the Certainly Celery CS (3 1/2" x 4 3/4"), I punched three Post-It Notes with the 1 3/8" Square Punch, making sure to include some of the sticky portion of the Post-In Notes. I then placed the three Post-It Note square evenly on the Certaily Celery CS, and punched again with the 1 3/8" Square Punch. The Certainly Celery frame piece is mounted on dimensionals for depth. The flowers from the Priceless stamp set are stamped on the Whisper White background piece, stamped again on another piece of Whisper White, cut out, and raised on dimensionals.

RECIPE
Stamps: Priceless (pg. 117)
Paper: Flowers For You DP, Tempting Turquoise, Certainly Celery and Whisper White CS

Here is my second CASE from Kristina's gallery. See her original card HERE. I'll be making five of these cards for five ladies who recently joined my creative team. They took advantage of the Choose Your Family Promotion (click here for more information, or e-mail me). This special promotion ends September 30 ... don't miss out! Some of these ladies purchased the Starter Kit to take advantage of the great price on Stampin' Up! products, others want to purchase their SU products at the discounted demonstrator price, and others are looking to start a Stampin' Up! independent business. Welcome Leah, Gaylene, Toni, Jennie, and Tammy!!!!RECIPE

Congratulations to you and your three new team members. Your cards are incredible. I'm definitely going to have to try the three-window idea. Kristina's blog is incredible, I agree.
