Featured Stamper - knightrone (Jessie!)

I'm so excited to see that Jessie (knightrone) has been picked for today's featured stamper challenge.

You can see her gallery HERE and her blog HERE.

CONGRATULATIONS, Jessie! I think you're pretty fabulous so I picked one of your cards using the Fabulous Flowers set. I picked this one HERE to CASE.

I kept your same layout (just moved the sentiment to the right), used the same stamp set and embossed the three layers of flowers, and kept the same number of layers. I just changed the colors, DP, and used antique brass hardware instead of silver. I hope you have an awesome day today crusing the galleries and blogs. Have a blast!!


I stamped the flower three times in Colorbox white and then heat embossed with white embossing powder. I cut out the flowers in different sizes like Jessie did, put them all together with the brass brads, and then popped the largest flower up on dimensionals. The Chocolate Chip square mat behind the flowers is up on dimensionals as well. The sentiment was stamped in Versamark, heat embossed with white embossing powder, and popped up on dimensionals too.

The piercing up in the right corner was done with an Ornare piercing template. My friend Lori (LMcAree) bought it for me as a gift when we went to OC in May. You can buy them at Ellen Hutson's store. Cool little tool! The hardware in the center of the flowers are the brads from SU's Hodgepodge Hardware set. The hardware next to the sentiment is from Michael's, in the jewelry aisle. They're glued down to the paper with a very small dot of crystal effects.
