SCS FEATURED STAMPER CHALLENGE FS64 Sf9erfan

I played along with this week's SCS Featured Stamper Challenge a few days ago but couldn't share until now. You see, tonight is our SU Demo Group (weSTAMP) meeting, and I'm using this card for our Masculine Birthday/Father's Day Card Swap. Hopefully, they're all busy putting the finishing touches on their cards instead of reading my blog! Check back over the next couple of days ... I'll be posting the swap cards, along with lots of great RAKS I've received recently!

Anyway, this week's SCS Featured Stamper (FS64) on SCS is Michelle, Sf9erfan. I didn't even pay attention to Michelle's description of her original card until now. Turns out, her card was inspired by a card by Silke Ledlow, My Life, who's card was inspired by Faith Hofrichter,
Stampin' With Markie's Mom. Funny how we all are inspired by each other!

HERE is Sf9erfan's beautiful SCS gallery. HERE is Michelle's card I chose to case. Instead of listing the things I changed, I think it's easier to list the things I didn't change which are the colors, the general layout, and the star theme.

The Classic Stars Jumbo Wheel was inked in Versamark and rolled along the left side of the River Rock background CS. To create the 3-D stars, the Classic Stars Jumbo Wheel was again inked in Versamark and rolled onto another piece of River Rock, then on to Chocolate Chip, then on to Always Artichoke ... and punched with the Small and Large Star Punches (which fit the images from this jumbo wheel perfectly!).

RECIPE
Stamps: All Holidays, Classic Stars Jumbo Wheel
Paper: Always Artichoke Prints DP, Chocolate Chip, River Rock, and Always Artichoke CS
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Versamark
Embellishments: Pewter Brads, Chocolate Chip Poly-Twill Ribbon
Tools: Small and Large Star Punches
Supplies: Stampin’ Dimensionals
