I love our CCEE Catchy Name Featured Stamper (CNFS) challenge. This month I chose Dawn, aka Flowergal36 on Splitcoaststampers. Dawn is so sweet and a very talented stamper. If you get a chance, check out her gallery on Splitcoaststampers and leave her some love.
Dawn told me that she loves to garden and has quite the green thumb, however, she finds it difficult to stamp with flowers. Therefore, I told my CCEE team mates that their project had to have flowers on it. The other fabulous thing about Dawn is that her favorite color is the same as mine: Purple!!! Yeah, baby!
One of my favorite flower stamp sets is A Year of Flowers designed by Melanie Muenchinger (distributed by Gina K Designs). This rose is so exquisite and a pleasure to color. I gold embossed the rose and watercolored it using my Stampin' Up reinkers (Pretty in Pink and Riding Hood Red). I also gold embossed the stem and leaves onto Always Artichoke cs and cut those out. The flower, stem, and leaves are raised on dimensionals. You can't see it in my photo, but I added droplets of Crystal Effects onto the rose petals to simulate morning dew.
I just received this SU Bella Rose dp and knew I wanted to use it in my card for Dawn. The opposing side of this pretty floral is the Kiwi Kiss green and white polkadotted dp you see on the inside of my card, which I punched with the MS picket fence punch that I used on the white cs on the outside of my card.
Would you like to see the projects my friends made or play along with us? Check out our CCEE blog for the details! We will send our projects to Dawn.
