Shelly's turn to shine!!!

I was so excited about the Featured Stamper for today because it's Shelly - papermoon04 on SCS. She's a total sweetheart - and she lives about 45 minutes away from me. And there's 2 LSS between the 2 of us, so we've been shopping buddies - and will probably get together sometime to go shopping again.

I've been a bad friend, though. I haven't been looking through her gallery (or anyone else's really) so when I looked through it, I was blown away by the gorgeousness of her cards.

I picked her Fleur D Harlequin card to CASE. If you're curious, her card is:

  • One of the LSS we've been to had this gorgeous May Arts organdy ribbon. You can't really see it on the card, but it's variegated from aqua to brown, which is the inspiration for the Blue Bayou and Chocolate Chip on the card.
  • Instead of stamping out diamonds, I cut diamonds out of Groovy Guava Prints paper.
  • The layer beneath the diamonds has swirls from Priceless stamped in Blue Bayou.
  • The "s" is Basic Grey chipboard embossed several times with silver embossing powder. **Note: if you're embossing on chipboard, it doesn't cool off as quickly as paper, so leave it alone for a few minutes before you run your finger over it to see how smooth it is. You'll pull part of the embossing powder off. I learned this to my detriment today.
  • I don't have vintage brads - I need to ask Shelly where she got hers because they're really cool. I used clear rhinestone brads - and twisted my ribbon to "pinch" it at the brads.

This card is being sent to Shelly in the mail tomorrow. :)

Great card, Sara! So glad that I found your blog. I've missed all my s/talker friends, but life is so hectic now that this is all I have time for at the moment. I'll check in from time to time.

Have a great day!
