Today, the Featured Stamper Challenge (FS268) on Splitcoast is…EVERYONE! Each of us is our own Featured Stamper! So pick one of your own cards, CASE (copy and share everything), remembering to change at least 2 things, then play along!
I found out one important thing with this challenge, I found it much harder to CASE myself than I would have imagined. To me, it’s just hard to pick a card I’ve previously made then make another with changes. I find myself wanting to make the same card. I usually don’t have that problem when CASEing someone else. In the end, I kept the layout and most of the details, but changed the colors, the stamps used and the embossing folder. Here’s the original card from April 2011, called Butterfly Dreams.
And here is my CASE of this card:
See what I mean? They look like sisters. One a butterfly, the other a dragonfly. The images on the new dragonfly card are all from Our Daily Bread designs. After sponging the background, I stamped the cattails , small dragonfly and flourish image around them to make the frame. I used a little bleach to remove the color in select areas.
The white background was embossed with a Sizzix folder and some stickles was added to the images. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.
p.s If you read Cindy’s Featured Stamper post, then you know I’m one of the new Featured Stamper Challenge team! I’m so excited to be working along side Bridget Finlay, Judy Rozema and Stacy Morgan to bring you the FS challenge. And good luck and best wishes to Cindy in her new job and thanks for the wonderful Featured Stampers she brought to us!
