Paper Players Featuring...

Hello again!

Today I am posting the other card I made on Sunday.  I combined the SCS Featured Stamper challenge with this week's Paper Players challenge.

One thing I love about the Featured Stamper challenge is that we all get introduced to a stamper with whom we may not be familiar.  Such was the case, as I perused the delicate and lovely gallery of Daizy-Mae!  WOW!  Such a master at the clean and simple style...I sent a lot of time just gazing.  Because her style is CAS, it made sense to combine with PP196.

After searching Daizy-Mae's gallery, I chose THIS card to CASE.  I liked the pinks and oranges, with simple black images over the top.  I sponged rather heavily on my card, and the image is much heavier.

Again, all of my supplies are from Stampin' Up!  The only card stock I used is confetti white.  Using black craft ink and black embossing powder, I stamped this image from "Upsy Daisy."  Then using sponge daubers, I added colors for a sunset:  daffodil delight, pumpkin pie, tangerine tango, and melon mambo.  I used my journaling marker to add a few birds.  Next, I added the black polka dotted ribbon:  I chose to leave a strip without color, honoring the featured stamper's style.  My sentiment is also from Upsy Daisy, punched out with the decorative label punch, and sponged around the edges just a bit.

Dear hubby is at work, so the picture isn't great...but I am happy with the card.  That's what matters most, any way, right?

Hope to see you hear again soon.

  1. So beautiful, Kim! Upsy Daisy is a stamp set I had always wished I would have purchased. Love how you embossed it and created your pretty sponged sunset. Thanks for playing along with us this week at The Paper Players!
