Most of you are probably familiar with Julie as the DT Coordinator for Flourishes stamps, etc. She has been chosen as the Featured Stamper on SplitcoastStampers HERE and so a challenge has been issued to case one of her cards from her gallery HERE and upload it to SCS. All the instructions can be found HERE.
I’ve admired Julie’s work for many years as I’m sure you have also, and thought I would like to play along. Our anniversary is this Wednesday, and so I needed to make a card for my sweet husband of course ~ and I’m always looking for simple layouts thinking I’m going to get through it quickly ~ usually however, that does not happen and this was no exception. I chose this card of Julie’s for the layout ~ I love it when the layout gives you a good look at beautiful DPs ~ and this one does. I’ve been going through my older paper and trying to use some of it up and I love this piece for masculine cards. I also recently purchased from Flourishes, the “What a Catch” stamp set found HERE. My husband, father-in-law, and son-in-law all love to fish so I knew the moment I saw it that it would get a lot of use and it has.
I wanted to use corrugated cardboard as I love the earthy organic manly feel and look to it. Peeled off the top layer in places to show the wonderful texture underneath, simply stamped the image and adhered it, tied on some rustic button twine, stamped the image of the creel, colored it, cut it out and adhered it. I can’t tell you how much I LOVE this set ~ and I’m pleased with the card as well.
Take care friends
