Stamper's Showcase

I've mentioned before that on the demonstrator side of Stampin' Up!'s website there is a Stamper's Showcase that features cards that have been submitted by demonstrators. Today one of my cards is featured!!! This is a card I submitted for a spring theme contest. Although I didn't win the contest it's still pretty exciting to have my card featured on the Showcase as there are thousands of cards to choose from.

I took the flower stamp from Garden Whimsy and inked up the flower head with Pretty in Pink and then used my Old Olive marker to ink up the stem. I stamped the image 3 times across my piece of Whisper White. I then stamped the butterfly using Rose Red. And I was thinking that spring needed some bling, so I spread some Mono Multi on the flower heads and butterfly and drenched them in Dazzling Diamonds. I then stamped my sentiment in Rose Red on Pretty in Pink and punched it out with the Large Oval punch and adhered it to my Very Vanilla Piece. I found a scrap of Rose Red and trimmed it to size and then tore the top edge of the layer. I adhered it to a Pretty in Pink card and tied a piece of Old Olive 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon around the card. Once my Dazzling Diamonds dried I adhered my Very Vanilla piece of cardstock to my card.

Although the prize (free stamps!) for winning the contest would've been great a shout on the Showcase is pretty exciting, too!
