Featured Stamper: Dawn Burnworth

I was delighted to see Beth had picked flowergal36 as today’s Featured Stamper on SCS; she’s most deserving! Her Sweetest Flower card grabbed my attention and I thought it would be perfect for a little (4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″) thank you card I needed to make today.

Instead of Happiness Always, I used Inspired by Nature stamps, and I also changed the colors to match the satin ribbon I had chosen. I love how her brayered background has such soft borders; mine was sponged and has much sharper edges. I stamped the flower first after inking it up with markers, and I created the background afterwards.

The sentiment from Wow Flowers was punched out with a 1-1/4″ circle punch and layered on top of a designer label that has a 1-3/8″ circle attached to it. I embellished with a Ruby Red brad and the Kiwi Kiss/Very Vanilla satin ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Splendid! Looks so pretty in these colors. Love the background you created. Did you use kiwi kiss to sponge the background?

    Great job – I love the colors, but how you did the flower, part in the background and part out of the background was great.
