Featured Stamper: Dawn McVey

One of my Great Swaps friends was last Sunday’s Featured Stamper on SCS, so of course I had to participate in the challenge. I looked through Dawn’s wonderful gallery and picked her Gratitude card to CASE. I decided to keep the layout and colors, but change some of the stamps and embellishments on my card.

The Essence of Love flower stamp was inked up with Stampin’ Up! markers, and I added one extra flower on the left hand side to fill in an empty spot. The Thinking of You stamp (from the same stamp set in the Occasions Mini, which by the way has been extended until June 30) was inked up with a Chocolate Chip marker and stamped on two lines, so that the sentiment would fit inside the Aged Copper Hodgepodge frame.

The Real Red Prints Designer Series paper used in the background is from the Prints Pack Level 1 Hostess award.

Thanks for stopping by!
