Featured Stamper: Susan Liles

Susan (aka susiestampalot) is today’s FS on I chose her elegant Sprinkles of Kindness card to CASE, but ended up omitting the ribbon and brads that attracted me to the card in the first place.

Four different stamps from the Frames with a Flourish set were used on this card. I stamped the frame around the sentiment in Riding Hood Red ink on Whisper White card stock, cut out the oval with the Coluzzle, and sponged Pink Pirouette ink around the edges. The scallops on the Kiwi Kiss oval were created with the 3/16″ corner rounder punch (guide removed). I was so happy to have created a perfectly scalloped oval, but you may think my little pink embellishments are hiding imperfections. Not at all!

The square frame stamp was stamped in Riding Hood Red ink on Pink Pirouette card stock, punched out with the Photo Corners punch and adhered in the top corners of the card.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Oh Vera! This is a beauty! Your scalloped oval, punched by hand is amazing. And the embellishments are the perfect touch. Get ready for a big order!
