Flourishes Featured Stamper #5

This was another week with so many absolutely gorgeous entries!!!! Thank you so much ladies -- I just wish there was room to put them ALL up here!!! But to narrow it down, I chose two stampers to feature today and here they are:

Flourishes Featured Stampers #5
DeborahLynneS (Debbie)
stampininthesun (Erin)

Congratulations, Deb and Erin!!!

Our first card is a beautiful wedding card that Debbie made using one of Flourishes latest releases, the gorgeous Peony set.

Deb (DeborahLynneS) colored her Peony with Copic markers and what a gorgeous look she achieved. Can you see the little dew droplets of water on her leaves? They are done with a Spica Glitter Pen -- amazing!!! They look sooooo realistic!!! I love the vibrancy of the leaves while the flower itself looks soft and lovely, and Debs layout, background stamping and embellisments add up to make this one gorgeous card!!! Thank you so much Deb for sharing this with us!!!

And Deb had another entry this week I'd like to share with you as well. This time Deb used the Siberian Iris and colored this one, as well, with her Copic markers. Again, I love the vibrancy of her colors, which she took from a photo in a gardening book. I think it is so neat how so many using these beautiful floral images are taking the time to research them in an effort to achieve a natural look!!! After stamping and coloring her image, Deb used one of the Oval Nestabilities to cut out and emboss her image -- such a lovely look! The background is a Cuttlebug embossed sheet of vellum. Another beautiful card Deb, thank you!!!

And the third card we are featuring today takes on a totally different look. Erin (stampininthesun) made this fun and casual card using another of Flourishes most recent releases, Coffee with Friends.

Now, isn't this just plain old fun!!! The kraft paper used adds to the casual feel of this card. Erin used punches to create her scalloped border and her sentiment panel, and then she further embellished her card with coordinating pieces of gingham ribbon in different widths -- a great look!!! Her main image cup from Coffee with Friends was simply done by paper piecing. This card is eye-catching, but yet quick and easy to reproduce -- a perfect example of a Stamp Simply card!!! So glad you shared this with us, Erin!!! Thanks so much!!!

Both Deb and Erin will have their names added to the hat for the prize drawing on July 1. You have one more week to enter to get your name in the hat this time around. If you'd like to play, you can find the Featured Stamper Challenge in the Flourishes Forum at SCS. Be sure to check it out!!!
