Featured Swapper: Jackie Pedro

Last July I was invited to join a great group of talented stampers who are also Stampin’ Up! demonstrators: the Great Swaps Girls. Recently the GSG started a blog, and it features weekly challenges. I made this card for the first GSG Featured Swapper challenge, where we get to choose a card made by Jackie Pedro (her work is awesome!) and CASE it.

I picked this beautiful Stem Silhouettes card as my starting point. My card measures 5-1/4″ by 5-1/4″ and I didn’t seem to have enough room for all the layers Jackie used. I managed to get a little bit of piercing in on the main panel. I moved the ribbon to the side, because it was covering up too much of the bird. The Styled Silver Designer Label frame fit perfectly on top of the ribbon.

The bird was stamped in Wild Wasabi ink and then masked, so that I could sponge some Soft Sky ink around it. The edges of the main panel were sponged with Certainly Celery ink.

Hope I did Jackie’s card justice!

    Hi! I really like this card and the colors you chose to make it. What’s the name of the bird stamp? I’d love to get one but don’t know where it’s from. Thanks! Lyndsay

    Vera, this is a beautiful card. I love the combination of patterns. I think I will have to get this set… I keep telling myself I don’t need it, but cards like this make me NEED it! 🙂
