Happy News ...

Today I was picked for the Featured Stamper at SCS (FS282).  I am so thrilled!!  Thank you to Judy (StampingQueenJAR) for choosing me.  And thank you so much to everyone that has joined in the challenge by CASE'ing one of my cards ... I am so honored!!

Today I'm joining in on the CAS Challenge (CAS177) as an Alumni Spotlight Guest Designer - thank you Jen (Miss Boo) for inviting me!!  Today's CAS challenge is a color challenge - navy, old olive and white.  What a fabulous color combination.  Hope you like this CAS card.

"Madera Stamp"

Stamp:  For You (Rubber-Art Stamps)
Paper:  White (C.C. Designs); White (Bazzill - texture for the flowers); Old Olive, Night of Navy (SU!)
Ink:  Versamark
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Madera Corner die (Memory Box), Postage Stamp Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Hydrangea punch (Martha Stewart), mat, stylus, green glitter glue, white embossing powder, heat tool, glue dots, glue, and dimensionals

I die-cut the medium-sized postage stamp three times (two white and one navy) and glued them together with the navy layer on top.  This adds to the depth of the die-cut, making it stand out more.

I die-cut the madera corner from Old Olive cardstock.  I added green glitter to all the "dots" on the die (not the leaves).

I punched out several of the Hydrangea blossoms.  I shaped them using my mat and stylus and then added green glitter centers.

I stamped the sentiment in Versamark, and then embossed in white.

I mounted all the layers as shown in the photo above, popping up the postage stamp panel with dimensionals to add depth.
