SCS Featured Stamper

Today's Featured Stamper on Splitcoast is Emily Keaton, who was a DT member of Mark's Finest Papers a couple of years ago.  I also was a fellow Stampin' B with her.  I've loved her designs for a long time.  Today I CASEd her Tattered Roses card, but I changed the roses to poppies.   Here's my card.

I decided I would rather have a standard-sized card; although, because of the Fleur de Lis diecut, I had to make the card 5 inches by 6 1/2 inches.  I love these new poppies from Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company.  They are in a set to be released on Tuesday.  Be sure to check out our Blog Hop this week to see all four of the new sets.

Changes I made to Emily's card (in addition to the shape of the card) are the poppies (obviously) and the papers.  I also did not have any stitching on my card -- I don't do stitching!!!  After stamping the poppies, I masked them with Eclipse Tape and then stamped on the Crackle background (from MFP Background Fun) while the nestie die was still on the paper. (NOTE TO SELF:  you need more Eclipse Tape!)   I moved the bow and stickpin to the opposite side and the sentiment to the bottom.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.  Make sure you come back on Tuesday for the start of the Blog Hop.  You've got a chance to win a brand-new stamp set!

I agree with Vicky, this is Amazing!! The papers that you used look fabulous with the poppies. Now I'm thinking of looking through my scraps and paper stash to see if I still have some of that paper.
