The Featured Stamper on SCS this week is my fellow Stampin'B's Design Team buddy, so you know I'd be CASEing several of her cards today. I actually made four cards! The first one I chose is shown on the computer screen next to my version.
Although I kept the layout and theme of Joanne's card, I did make a couple of changes:
* Different color
* Different stamps
* A2 card instead of square
The next card I chose is this one, using the Split Negative technique.
As you probably know, Joanne is well-known for creative beautiful black and white cards. The Split Negative is a fun technique. Check out the tutorial on SCS. My changes were:
* Butterfly instead of dragonfly
* Stripes instead of polka dots
* Punched flower instead of primas
* Circle Nestie instead of Oval
Another favorite color combination of Joanne's is red, black, and white. I used this card as the starting point of my third card.
My layout and color combo are the same. Changes are:
* Different diecut
* Not as many layers
* Different stamps and CB folder
* Only three white brads instead of five
Note, too, that I did not use the corner punch she used on her card. I used the scallop corner punch (dimple) that I now own because of Joanne. Don't look too closely at the CB background embossing. After I was finished, I noticed that the birds are up-side down. Oops!
My final card was a Halloween card. Between my sister and me, we make about 90 Halloween cards for the residents of the assisted living facility where my mom lives. I used this card of Joanne's as the starting point.
I kept Joanne's layout but made the following changes:
* Changed the theme
* Used different stamps
* Added a sentiment
I cut the moon out with a round Nestabilities die and stippled it with a little bit of black ink.
I usually do maybe one or two cards for the Featured Stampers challenge, but I went overboard this week. And, believe me, it was not hard at all. You should check out her gallery. It's amazing!
