Featured Stamper: Kim Teasdale
It’s always nice to discover a new gallery on SCS with the Featured Stamper Challenge. This week we’re CASEing cards made by blondie090277, and I chose a card from this wonderful Basic Silhouettes Gift Ensemble.

The branch image from the new Eastern Blooms set reminds me of the Garden Silhouettes stamp, and we learned a neat trick at convention last week for inking it up with several colors. First I inked up the entire image with my Cameo Coral ink pad, and then I used a blender pen to remove the color from the stems. I colored the stems with a Chocolate Chip marker and also added a little color to the hearts of the flowers, right on top of the Cameo Coral ink.

This stamp set will be on sale (15% off), along with several others, starting Monday at 2:00 PM EDT. That is when the Fall-Winter 2008 Idea Book &Catalog goes into effect. Check my Stampin’ Up! website for more info on Monday afternoon.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Love this card! And TFS the great idea for new way to ink up a stamp with multiple colors! Can’t wait to see the samples of the Bella Rosa paper.
