CCEE Stampers & QFTD
Joanne is our hostess this month at CCEE Stampers and this week she is asking for flowers, flowers, flowers. I have two Recollections floral embellishments but other flowers scattered about my card...some on the dp and others on my die cut.
Also, while I was away last week, I missed the Queen for the Day challenge #102 on Splitcoaststampers. The Queen was Judy Rozema aka StampingQueenJAR. Here is the card I cased. I really loved it. Of course, you can see changes were made. I did keep her sketch, though. Instead of stitches, I used a Sew Stamper. It is a self-inking rolling stamp. I had bought a Sew Easy once and never used it but the heads for the rolling stamp fit the Sew Easy tool it so I decided to try it out. If you would like to see them, go here. Mine was purchased at my scrapbook store. I'm using it on the sentiment panel and is called Burst Stitch.
They even have Doodle Stampers which is awesome for me because I'm afraid of doodling. LOL
Also, I'm entering these challenges:
Divas by Design challenge #125 to use a favorite thing. Mine would be die cuts (listed below).
Let's Ink It Up #21-Show Us Your Flowers
The sentiment is from Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company and is from the stamp set Winter Crocus.
My die on to the top is a Memory Box floral circle and I used a Spellbinders classic large oval die and Spellbinders classic heart die.
The designer paper is Recollections Floral Embellishments and BasicGrey Out of Print collection (giclee double sided). Added crinkled seam binding and it's all finished!
