Today's Featured Stamper #90 on SCS is my good cyberspace friend, Kay Kaltoff, speedystamper! You can see Kay's fabulous artwork in her SCS gallery, and on her blog, Stamping to Share. CONGRATS, Kay!
HERE is Kay's card I chose to CASE for the challenge. I kept the same "large flower theme" and the same general layout. I used the stamp set, Doodle This to create the Poinsettia flower by stamping in Chocolate Chip onto the Old Olive DP (1X) and Ruby Red DP(2X) -- ALL DP is from Holiday Treasures. I then cut each flower out, staggered, and layered. A Build-A-Brad adorns the center of the Poinsettia flower with another Holiday Treasures Ruby Red DP pattern as the inside (1/2" Circle Punch). I rolled the petals of the flower around a pencil to make them curl for depth and interest. The ribbon is Riding Hood Red Tafetta, and the sentiment is from the Level One Hostess Set, Best Yet. It is punched out with the Large Oval Punch and backed with another staggered Ruby Red CS Large Oval Punch and raised up on Stampin' Dimensionals. I used Ruby Red ink to sponge around the border of the oval sentiment.
I don't know why I've been making so many Christmas cards lately, because I am so much more of a Fall/Autumn person. Seems like I've skipped that season altogether! I'm off to create my swap cards for Tuesday's weSTAMP swap. Will share a homecoming photo or two when I get a chance.
