Featured Stamper: Iwona Palamountain

I missed Chupa‘s day in the spotlight when she was chosen as SCS’s Featured Stamper on Christmas Day, so I’m playing catch-up. The gorgeous For You card I found in her gallery features the out-of-the-box technique (which I am still struggling with, but practice should make perfect someday).

I found a similar floral image in Gina K.’s Friends Are Forever stamp set, but colored my flowers yellow to match the designer paper I used. Since I turned my version into a 5-1/4″ square card, the layout was changed up a bit as well. Although I was very close to pulling out the sewing machine for this card, I ended up just piercing the paper along the edges. Maybe next time…

Thanks for stopping by!

    I love the elegance of this card design. As I’m starting out and trying to get an idea of what cards I want to try and techniques to use I find myself repeatedly coming back to what I’ve seen on your site.

    I could see using this same technique with some hand-knit lace for the edges. So many ideas to go with this.
