Featured Stamper: Cindy (YLM)

Cindy is such a sweet person, leaving lots of encouraging comments in the SCS gallery for people who upload their artwork. I was thrilled to see her picked as the Featured Stamper last Sunday. I CASEd a card she made with last year’s Big Blossom Sale-A-Bration set. Speaking of SAB, Stampin’ Up! has announced that Sale-A-Bration will run from February 1 through March 31 in 2009 (and I’ve already added it to my calendar here).

I tried to duplicate the big flower by stamping the polka-dot petal five times on Whisper White card stock, with the pointy ends overlapping. Then I cut the flower out, adhered it to a 4″ x 4″ piece of Basic Black card stock and added some faux stitching with the white gel pen. The heart of the flower was stamped in Jet Black StazOn ink and punched out with the 1″ Circle Punch. I threaded black gingham ribbon through a clear button and used a mini glue dot to adhere it to the flower.

The sentiment was stamped in VersaMark and embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The finished card measures 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ and will fit inside a regular A2 size envelope, with or without applying Julie Ebersole’s neat little trick.

Thanks for stopping by!
