Well I have been stamping for a good part of today... I love Splitcoast Stampers Blog .. and the Featured Stamper Challenge is one of my favourite challenges. Today was a bonus day because Lori Barnett is today's FS129... She and I are on the House Mouse and Friends Design Team... plus I love Lori's work and she is such a sweet, fun lady... Check out her Blog "Stamp Scents".
I have made three cards in Lori's honour.
For the card below - the image is a RAK I received from Sue (aka coffeestamper on SCS) - It is from American Art Stamps - called "Margarita". Here is the card that I cased, called "Do the Math". I love this humours card of her's.
Below is the second card I made - here is the sweet card I cased "Little yellow Giraffe".
I also combined six SCS Dirty Girl challenges in this card - Cindy Haffners sketch, BevMoms - sewing, Lauraly's - Tie one on - Ribbon, Craftycaro - anything but average - my card is 5x5,
Deborah Lynnes - Taken with texture, PickleTrees - born to be wild (giraffe), Becca Stamps, punches and die cuts.
My adorable giraffe stamp is from Clear Dollar Stamps - call Patchpal Giraffe. I stamped image with stazon jet black ink and water coloured using Stampin Up Reinkers. I pleated and sewed the ribbon for the vertical and horizontal strips. Used Nestabilites to cut the plain and scalloped circles and for the scalloped corners. I sewed the x's on the giraffe's cheeks.
Below is the first card I cased of Lori's. I just love these adorable House Mouse images. This imase is called "Sweet Music". Here is the darling card I cased "House Mouse Christmas Love".
Image was stamped on water colour paper using Stazon jet black ink and water coloured with Stampin Up reinkers. I clear embossed the candy cane and trumpet. This card also qualifies for last weeks SCS Ways to Use it challenge WT228 - use charms. The "Celebrate" sentiment is a pewter charm.
Congratulations again, Lori.....
