Family Album

Yesterday's Featured Stamper on SCS was Michelle (Chelemom). Check out her awesome gallery if you haven't already done so. Man, can the girl color or what?!?! Awesome cards!

I chose THIS gorgeous card of hers to CASE.

I bought the Seaside and Story of Me sets from Crafty Secrets a while back, but this is the first time I got to ink up the Story of Me set. What took me so long?...I have no idea!

My card measures 4.25" x 4.25" square. The scallop Chocolate Chip circle is up on a layer of dimensionals, with the white image circle on a second layer over that. The white sentiment oval is up on a layer of dimensionals, with the Chocolate Chip oval behind it up on a second layer too. The image was watercolored with inkpads (by smashing the ink in the lid).

The inside of the card includes a strip of the DP over white CS, then matted with a Chocolate Chip panel again. My good friend, Janice (catcrazy), got me this cute DP. It's a whole pack of 6x6 double-sided DP. So nice of you, Janice, thanks!!

What an adorable card! I have to say, I always admire how you decorate the insides of your cards. I stamp my envelopes, but I think it's time to take the next step and give a little love to the insides sometimes! It just adds that something extra!
