woo hoo... Congratulations Shirley. I am so happy to see you as this weeks featured stamper - you are very deserving of this HONOR. Enjoy your time in the spotlight. I chose this beautiful Inspired by Black Eyed Susans card. This is one of my very favourite stamp sets. I painted the flower stamp with acrylic paints and stamped it onto Kraft card stock. Let it dry. Next I stamped sanded and script back ground stamps using close to cocoa ink. Sponged chocolate chip around the edge of flower panel. Matted panel with groovy guava, chocolate chip and groovy guava. Made the pleated ribbon. Sewed ribbon on and then around the flower panel. Wrapped twine around the ribbon twice and tied on the Stampin Up latte button. Stamped Thank you on to Kraft cardstock, cut out tag, sponged edges. Punched out two leaves, sponged edges and attached with glue dots under the botton. Used a pop dot under the pointed part of tag. Stamped sanded backgrounder with close to cocoa onto the base card. Image panel is popped up.
I am putting this into the F4A101 challenge - to used Kraft and Chocolate chip card stock. Also into this months fan club theme - Mind your Manners.
Thursdays Ways to Use it - looking back - WT359 - to use at least two of the previous years challenges.
WT358 - faux or real sewing, WT354 - kraft cardstock, WT316 - flowers
and Mondays Technique challenge - Twine TLC360
Thanks for looking, Hugs.. Pat
P.S. - I am having 4 of my grand daughters over today. Had one (Kayla) for a sleepover last night - we made a Valentines card and will be making more today.
