Twas the Night
I made my card for this week's Featured Stamper, my talented blogging and Punchkateer pal. Anyone who knows Colleen aka Smoatsmom on Splitcoaststampers or from her blog Dietrich Designs knows she has the most elegant cards ever.
She sent me this Christmas card this past season and I absolutely love it so I decided to try to case it. I really needed the beautiful red and white houndstooth but had to settle for this blue/green color. I used a stamp the same as hers. I had sent this one to Colleen after she sent me a wonderful bird stamp. She knows I love birds and houndstooth. After buying her stamp, I had to buy one for myself. :-) Isn't that the way it is?
I ended up making a square card instead of like Colleen's A2. Well, that's a long story I won't go into.
Otherwise, I tried to follow her creation and make a few changes so I wouldn't be copying her card.
I like my cards better on SCS because I always show them larger. I need to figure out how to enlarge my photo space on my blog as I can't show the same size as I do on Splitcoaststampers.
Colleen, have fun this week being a celebrity on Splitcoaststampers. You deserve it!
