Featured Stampers #8

Finally, the much over-due announcement for the winners of this week's Featured Stamper Challenge, and here they are:

Featured Stampers #8


Lois (clownmom)


Judy (jaydekay)

HUGE CONGRATS to Lois and Judy!!!

The first card I'd like to show you just happens to be the first card that Lois made using her new Stamp Simply set called Thank You. WOW, what a first creation!!! Lois did a gorgeous job on this card. She first stamped on the beautiful parrot tulip, colored it with her Prisma Colored Markers and then masked it, and the Eclispse Masking Tape with its low-tack self-adhesive back works wonders for this. Lois then stamped on the scripted background stamp included in the set to get this lovely look on her main image panel. She then cut, embossed, matted and framed her image using her Classic Square Nestabilities. Love how Lois then softly sponged the edges of her panel -- such a soft look! Some brads, pretty DP, ribbons and a cute little hang charm finish Lois' creation off nicely!!! Thanks so much Lois for this beautiful sampling of our Stamp Simply Thank You set.

This gorgeous card using our Iris set was created by Judy. She so beautifully colored in the Iris using her Watercolor Crayons and an aquapainter. Beautiful coloring in such lovely and realistic colors!!! Judy used her Classic Circle Nestabilities to showcase her Iris in the circle, and her Oval Nestabilities to cut and frame the sentiment. I especially love how Judy also stamped a portion of the image onto her sentiment oval -- sure adds a lot of interest! Judy also used her main image Iris stamp to create a lovely background for her card. Great use of this Iris stamp for both foreground and background!!! Judy finished off her card with some pretty gold cording, a strip of DP and some pretty die cut corners. What a gorgeous creation, Judy -- just lovely!!! Thank you so much for playing this week!!!

Both Lois and Judy will have their name thrown into the hat for the July drawing which will take place on August 1. The prize will be one Flourishes stamp set of the winners choice plus a ribbon bundle package selected by Flourishes.
