Just Because....

Hello Everyone!!  It's Sunday and that means it's Featured Stamper challenge time!!  I've missed playing the FS challenge, so was happy to join in today!!  :)  This week the honour goes to Korin aka Sweet n Sassy Stamps and I found THIS fab card to case!  I've changed the image and elements and kept the over all design.

I've used a base of yellow bazzill and layered with blue bazzill, white and some MME Gertie DP.  The frame is created with blue bazzill cut with Lacey Circle Nestabilities with the middle cut out with Large Circle Nestabilities.  The inner white circle is cut with two sizes of Small Circle Nestabilities.  I actually coloured this Marci with Flower stamp the other day for a tutorial at CopicOz.  You can find the tutorial by Clicking Here!  She was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (E11, E13, E15, E18, BV00, E04, C0, C1, C3, C5, C7, Y21, Y35, Y38, YR24, B91, B93, B95, B97, E97, E08, E19, R81, R83, E51, E53, G24, G28, E35, E37).  The sentiment is from JustRite Stampers mini sentiment set called Just Because which I've then cut into a notched tag and then popped Marci up on foam tape over the end.  I've then added a couple of branches and three ZVA flowers to the lacey ring.  To finish I've added clear rhinestones to the corners.

Want to see one of my latest FAV things that you DON'T put on the front of your card????
It's a stamp that is customized with your name and BLOG ADDRESS!!!  How super cool....not to mention time saving!!!  It's called a My Blog, My Card Stamper and I use this on the back of ALL my cards now and anywhere that I need to use these details - class kit bags, back of old business cards, paper bags when people buy my cards.....you name it!!  You can choose what you want it to say, so if you don't want the 'handcrafted by, you don't have to have it!  :)  You can find all the template details on the JustRite Stampers website HERE!!  Okay, that's all the enabling from me today!!  :)

Great card and awesome colouring. I love the scalloped circle behind her with the flowers and the cute little sentiment strip.
I have some little stamps that I use to put my name on the back of my cards but nothing as fancy as yours. That is so nice!

Great card! Love the circle frame you cut out and matted and added the flowers to and the image is fabulously coloured. Totally adorable card :) Great new JustRight toy too! Just don't stamp it on your kids ;)

Jean McKenzie said...

Hi Kathy! Again I admire your gorgeous shading and I love how you have cut out the inside of the circles!

Yes I need a customised stamp - what a choice of designs - hmmmmm which one!! Thanks for the enabling LOL!

Oh Kathy! What AMAZING coloring! LOVE every bit of this!!

Leslie Miller said...

Whoa! Amazing coloring! Fabulous design! Love it! And I love the idea of the stamp for the back of the card. I've gotten lax about doing this, but what a great idea to make it, oh, so easy! You're a great enabler and I'm pretty great at forgetting things as soon as they're out of sight. I really need to try to remember this one. Thanks!

She is pretty with all the yellow, great job on the colouring and pairing this image with the open circle, gives it a nice amount of space!

Gab said...

What a great card! And I love your customised stamp too!

Erica said...

Beautiful design and coloring. Now I have an idea how to use my copics (and which ones), to color a person of color.
