Two Featured Stamper Cards

Well here it is a Monday morning and back to the old routine. It's Valentine's Day today and I hope your sweetie treats you right! Temperatures were close to 70 yesterday afternoon and looks to be that way the rest of this week. I'd say winter is over for sure. The park was packed with people yesterday too! I hope you were able to enjoy some outdoor time yesterday!

I played along with the featured stamper challenge yesterday and made two cards. This first one is such a quick and easy card that would be great to make at the last minute or in batches so you always have a quick card on hand. The card I chose to CASE can be seen HERE.

Simple huh? and you could change the feeling and type of card just by changing the sentiment and using different designer papers. My sentiment is from the Birthday Humor set at Squigglefly and the paper is from My Minds Eye.

My next card didn't exactly turn out like I envisioned it, but I do like it. The card I CASED is HERE, and here is my card

The image is from Teresa Ward . I love the delicate beauty of it. It didn't require much coloring and then I used a Quickie Glue pen to trace over the parts I wanted to be fluffy. I used some home made flower soft to sprinkle over the glue and then tapped off the excess. Here's a close up shot of the fluff

I used pieces of foam core board to pop the image panel up. It gives it a bit more dimension than pop dots. The edge of the image panel is sponged with Blush Blossom ink and the sentiment is computer generated. I did punch little notches on the sides of the card to hold the cording in place.

Today is the day we announce the winners of the Valentine Contest that has been going on in the groups, so be sure to go by the PCP or SNR group to see if you won!
If you didn't win that one maybe you won the challenge on the Squigglefly blog! There's a new challenge up today and I fully intend to play along! I hope you will too. oh, and while you're there take a look at how much money has been raised for Lucky's surgery so far! There's a little place to the right that tells you where we're at so far!

Thanks for looking, and have a great Valentine's day!
