Julie Warner –
A big congrats to Kathleen, the newest Featured Stamper (FS366)! What a wonderful gallery she has and I chose THIS card of hers to case. I was really struck by the die cut word LOVE so I kept that and the red/white Valentine colors. I used a different greeting, different die cuts and different papers.

For my die cut LOVE, I used the LVE letters from a Spellbinders set and the heart shape from the ODBD Ornate Hearts die set. Since they are individual letters, I cut them one at a time so I could place them closer together and I tilted the heart because I liked it better. The letters showed up better against the dk red bg instead of the print, but I added a stamped heart bg using white ink behind the heart shape. The greeting was split and I left out the center word “love” to be replaced by the die cut “love”. The border is one of the Beautiful Border dies threaded w/ a very thin strip of white card stock and turned upside down because I didn’t have room for the rest of it. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.

Congrats again to Kathleen!Thanks so much for stopping by!

Julie Warner –
For today’s Inspiration Challenge (IC247), we were sent to Bed Bath & Beyond by Audrie. I love that place! And I was inspired by THIS plate. I love the colorful flowers against the white background. This is also for my first post as a guest designer this month for Sweet Stamps! You can see my post here for the Color Challenge (pink, red & white) on the Sweet Stamps Blog.

After coloring the image with Copic markers, I used a square die and an Out of the Box Nestie technique.  The designer paper layer was die cut with a larger square and the larger white layer was trimmed to fit along with the side layer of the same dp. Two pearl white Candi dots were glued in place and the Special Day 9114 was hand cut in the pennant shape and attached on the right side only. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 (A2). Usually I take a picture of the Copics I used, but I forgot. So here is a list of the colors:
R11, R20, R22, R35, R46 (poppies)
RV10, RV11, RV19, RV34, RV55 (tulips)
YG01, YG09, YG11, YG17, YG67 (leaves)
C00, C1, C3, C5, BOOO (teapot & shading)

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to stop by and check out the Sweet Stamps Color Challenge #155!
