Lovely Notes Collection

Today the outstanding artist, Kittie (kittie747) on Splitcoaststampers chose another remarkable artist to be the Featured Stamper for this week. That artist is the one and only Vickie Yeakley (Vickie Y.) CONGRATS, Vickie!!!  I used Catherine Pooler’s Lovely Notes Collection to create this card in honor of Vickie.

Lovely Notes_1To participate in the Featured Stamper Challenge, you select a card of the featured stamper to CASE, changing at least two things.  I chose one of Vickie’s card that is actually in my Favorites List today, “Lace Border vky”. I love the design of her card, and decided I would honor Vickie by creating a similar card. This is her card.  

Things that I changed from Vickie’s original:

1. Color Choices (her colors are a shade of lavender and green)
2. Stamped Images (except for the sentiment, she has no stamped images)
3. Sentiment (her sentiment is, “Just Saying Hello”)
4. Position of the border cuts (her borders run from corner to corner)
5. Die Cut Outs (she has a butterfly and flower)

Lovely Notes Collection

For my card, I used the stamps from the Lovely Notes Collection (Catherine Pooler) to randomly stamp flowers and foliage onto the solar white card stock. I used one of the Spellbinders dies to create borders and popped up the two pieces with foam tape onto a Tempting Turquoise Pierced Rectangle. I also created three flowers (on the left side), die cut them, and adhered them to the card front with foam tape. This was attached to the Daffodil Delight card base.

I felt the sentiment, Celebrate, is quite appropriate as we are celebrating one of SCS favorite artist!

Enjoy and have a wonderful, blessed day!

Jesus said:  “In that day you will no longer ask me anything.  I tell you the truth, my Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.  Until now you have not asked for anything in my name.  Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.”  John 16:23-24
