Featured Stamper: Stephanie Severin

I didn’t manage to send out Christmas cards to everybody on my list, so I’ll have to mail a few New Year’s cards instead. This one was created by CASEing SCS Featured Stamper SmilynStef‘s Jingle Blues card. I’m always attracted to cards featuring the funky Alphabet Soup sentiments, but I needed a New Year’s greeting on my version. The A Brand New Year stamp was only partially inked up, so that the size of my image panel would be similar to Stephanie’s. After inking up the stamp, I also sponged Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint on top of the ink, which resulted in a nice, sparkly stamped sentiment.

The shimmer paint was also sponged along the edges of the designer paper (which is hard to see in the picture). I filled the glass with pink champagne by coloring it with Rose Red ink and a blender pen. Here’s to a fabulous 2010!

Thanks for stopping by!
