Featured Stamper Sunday

Today's Featured Stamper over on Splitcoast Stampers is Jennifer 0f Jennifer's Sweet Designs. She is a super sweet person and awesomely talented stamper. She always leaves the sweetest little comments for me on my cards and I sooo appreciate them! Unbelievably, I still needed a couple of Mother's Day cards, so I decided to case two cards of Jennifer's. I started with this one and as per the rules, I had to change a few things on it. Since this card is for my MIL, I decided to change the colors to Perfect Plum and Pale Plum. Then I stamped my flower from Fabulous Flowers four times, twice in Pale Plum and twice in Perfect Plum. To give the flower some depth, I cut out four different layers of the flower and popped each layer up. On the top layer, I added three silver brads. I left off the punched flowers and the sentiment circle at the bottom because I couldn't get them to work, so I added a piece of purple organdy and stamped the sentiment directly on the lower panel. Sadly, I still haven't replaced my corner rounder(I broke it-boohoo), so I had to use my Martha Stewart punch to create the scallops along the panel. The top flower was replaced with three silver brads.

My second card( and by FAR my favorite) was made using the SU set Bloomin Beautiful and was based on this card here. I colored the flowers with my markers and blended them with my aquapainter. The flowers were actually stamped twice, once on the oval for the stems, and the again on another piece of watercolor paper for me to color and pop up. I cut out the ovals with my nestabilities and added a sentiment to the bottom. The changes I made from Jennifer's card were the colors, added popped flowers, I changed the bow and wrapped it around, and added hardware to the sentiment and instead of dew drops, I put brads in the top corner. At first, I didn't have the green layer, but I thought it needed some more color so I added it and I am so happy I did!! Well, that is all for me for now(unless I get to stamp some more)! Happy Mother's Day to all of you out there who are mothers, and for those of you that struggle every day to become a mother, don't give up hope! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
